A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Sentimental Rose


Hello and welcome to this month's Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog hop.  This month's kit is super cute and beautiful and features a wonderful set of cards and gift box.  Plus the bonus perk of this month's kit was that it featured our very first distinktive stamp set.  For my Alternative projects I created a fun card and gift packaging.  Here's a look at my projects.
Here's a look at this month's intended projects from the kit.

All Wrapped Up!:  

For my gift packaging I used one of the striped gold and filled it with Hershey's kisses.   Folded over the top and added one of the background panels from the kit.  I stamped Fore you of this panel using poppy parade ink.  I then stamped three of the roses from the kit in Flirty Flamingo and one each in So Saffron and Poppy Parade.  I then fussy cut them each out. With the three Flirty Flamingo roses I took different sections from two of them and layered them on the third.  I stamped a few of the leaves from the stamp set in mint macaron and cut them out also.  I then added ribbons in Calypso Coral, Mini striped Poppy Parade Ribbons and a little bakers twine I took from my kit.  I placed the ribbon and twin on the tag that I used the panel for and stapled the ribbon on.  Then I made a double bow with bakers twine and attached over the staple.  
Next i added the flowers onto the tag.  I then added some of the leaves around.  To finish off the tag I added faceted clear gems to the center of each rose.  

My Card: 

 For my card I started out with a piece of whisper white cardstock and stamped two of the roses and leaves in on opposite sides leaving enough room between each so that I would have a nice window.  Next I took a circle and traced around that connecting the roses.  With a craft knife I cut out the center of the circle making sure to cut around each rose and leaf that was in the circle.  I took one of the note cards from the kit and trimmed it down to fit behind the opening.  I then layered this panel onto a Flirty Flamingo card base.  I used the same faceted clear gems on the inside of the roses on the card as I did the gift packaging.  

I added a whisper white panel to the inside with one of the roses stamped on the it.  And, then added my sentiment stamped on one of the banners from the kit and added some baker's twine at the top of the card to finish everything off.  

I hope that you have enjoyed my projects for this month.  If you are viewing this post on my wordpress site you will need to click here to view the blog roll.  If you are viewing on my new blogger website you will find the blog roll below.  Below the blog roll you will find a list of the supplies I used to do both projects.  Thanks for dropping by I hope that you will hop along to the end.  I know everyone have came up with some great projects for you.

April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit Sentimental Rose Alternative Projects (10 Cards with 1 Kit)

Hello and welcome to my Blog and YouTube Channel, today I am going to share with you a few alternative projects for the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  This month's kit was called Sentimental Rose and featured our first distinktive stamp set in a Paper Pumpkin box.  I used just the stamp set from this month's kit a piece of 12 x 12 Whisper White Cardstock and five coordinating ink pads and cardstocks to create 10 different cards using just the stamp set in this month's kit.  Here's a look at all the cards.


So let's talk about the stamp set that came in the kit.  It features a large photopolymer rose stamp that is in the distinktive style of stamps (which means that its a photorealistic stamp).  It has all the different shading already detailed in the the stamp.  You also have great sentiments, and a lovely leaf image. You can see both on today's projects.

Tips & Tricks: 

This month instead of cutting pieces of the kit apart to create the 10 alternative projects I wanted to focus on the distinktive stamp set instead.  So I used a piece of 12 x 12 Whisper White and created my own piece of designer series paper and then created a super easy one sheet wonder to create the cards.  I only had one small tiny piece of scrap left that I tossed; everything else went into making the cards.  

In addition to the 12 x 12 piece of whisper white I used five coordinating pieces of cardstock (So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, and Gray Granite.  I also added a few scraps of whisper white to create the sentiments.  I created most of them to be thank you cards since I need them most, but did add a couple additional sentiments to the last two.  

Each piece of cardstock was either scored at 4 1/4 or 5 1/2 depending on which way I wanted to make the card bases.  You all know there's basically two style card bases landscape (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4) or Portrait (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  Most of you know that portrait style is my favorite and I tend to go to it more than most.  Here's a look at all ten cards that I made with the One Sheet Wonder Template above.  










This is one of the things I like about card making you can get so much out of just a few products.  Plus using additional items or items from one of our kits makes it even easier.   Paper Pumpkin kits are a great way to go if you've never crafted before, or you don't have a lot of time to craft these monthly subscription kits are perfect.  They come with everything already to go.  And the great thing is they only take about 45 to a hour to put together.  

I love them and I love showing you alternative ways to get more from your kits each month.  I hope that you are enjoying this series.  Next month's kit is a very special kit!  It's called Hugs from Shelli and was designed by Co Founder and board chair Shelli Gardner.  I got to do a make & take of this kit while I was at OnStage Charlotte, and what I got to see of it I loved.  If you missed that post you can click here to see it.  
 If you want to get this kit you have to sign up by May 10th; but I think that it may sell out before that date.   That has happened in the past for exclusive kits so this may just be one of them that does.   So all I am going to say is if you want this kit sign up now don't wait till the 10th because it may just be gone by then.  Thanks for dropping by.
