July Paper Pumpkin Summer Nights Alternative Projects



Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am here to take part in the July A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop with two alternative projects using the July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Summer Nights.  For my two alternative projects today I used some items from this month's kit and some additional cardstock.  Here's a look at my card alternative project.  


For my alternative card I took one of the post cards that came in this month's kit and stamped the Firework/starburst image three times on the card front.  I then added some Terracotta Tile Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack around the card and tied it in a flat knot.  I placed my card front onto a Blackberry Bliss card base that was cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/4".  


I stamped my sentiment on to one of the labels from the kit, and added it to the card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  I finished off my card with a few of the star embellishments from the kit and a couple of the die cuts.  



For my 3D project this month I created a little shadow box to showcase the stamped sentiment "oh the Summer Nights are all alight with everything Magic and Bright".  I thought this was such a beautiful sentiment stamp that it needed a little attention.  So, what better way to do that than to put it in a little shadow box.  The shadow box was made from a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock that I cut at 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" then I did a little scoring cutting and folding to make the frame.  I added one of the postcards from the kit cut down to 4" x 4"; on to which I stamped the same fireworks/starburst image from the stamp set.  Once I glued the frame together I added some of the same ribbon I used on my card and did a little embellishing with elements from the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit to finish it off.  I would display this on one the little easels you can get.  I actually just purchased one the other day just for this project and when I went to take my pictures I could not find it to save my life.  

If you haven't seen the what this month's kit was designed to make here's a picture from Stampin' Up! of the intended projects.
