A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop May 2017


Are you ready for a new set of ideas for your monthly Paper Pumpkin kit?

For today’s post I’m joining in with a group of talented demonstrators who have created some other ideas using items from the May 2017 kit.  One of the wonderful things about the Paper Pumpkin community are all the different ideas that everyone comes up with.   So join us today as we bring you some more ideas for this month’s Sprinkled with Love Paper Pumpkin kit

On to my card for today – this one is a clean and simple card.  I used a few things from the Paper Pumpkin kit along with a few supplies from my craft room.


I decided to use one of the little envelopes as “paper” and die cut it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits using the largest of the circle dies.  You could cut 4 circles from each envelope.  And probably get two more if you didn’t cut full circles or moved to the one size smaller in the set.   I cut full circles because originally I thought I was going to use the full circle but ended up just using a portion of it.  And if you don’t have the Stitched Shapes or other Circle dies, use a punch.

I glued my circle onto a layer of Very Vanilla card stock (mine is 5″ x 3-3/4″).  I added that onto a Soft Suede card base (11″ x 4-1/4″, score at 5-1/2″).  I stamped the greeting on my card using the Soft Suede ink – you could pick which ever greeting you want.  Then use 24″ piece of the gold twine and tie it around the front of the card and tie in a little bow.

To finish I took three of the vanilla flowers from the kit and stamped the centers and then added a pearl.  Each one is on the circle with a dimensional.

I think it turned out to be a nice elegant card – it could be a wedding card even – it is wedding season now.

If you live local to me join me for some stamping this week – Friday 5/26 – Card Makers Class and next week Wednesday 5/31 for Paper Pumpkin Craft Night.  You can find details and RSVP on my website HERE.

    • It was funny how the layout came about – when i cut my envelope from the front the back layer was a partial circle and that’s what I ended up using.
