Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today I’m sharing some alternate ideas for the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit as part of the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Blissful Blooms. The kit is gorgeous as is! But, you’ll want to take a look at all of the inspiration we’re sharing just in case you’d like to change it up a bit.
Blissful Blooms August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit
Here is this month’s beautiful kit (minus stamps and ink spot).
As of this morning, the Blissful Blooms Refill Kit is still available HERE

For my alternate card, I decided to go with punches on a Thick Whisper White base.
Taking one of the floral note cards, I punched 2-1/4″ and 1-3/4″ circles.
Then, I used my 2″ Circle Punch to cut a piece from one of the envelopes.
Next, I added some of those great green vellum leaves (I love that stuff!!)
After stamping my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on one of the tags,
I tied the tag with Flirty Flamingo and Silver Baker’s Twine.

The first thing I thought of when I looked at the Blissful Blooms kit and alternate ideas was
making a purse.
Using one of the note cards, I scored to create a bottom.
Then, I created sides for my purse using Mossy Meadow.
To make these pieces work best, I scored to make a gusset.
For the handles, I used strips of Berry Burst.
And on the tag, I stamped the flowers in Blackberry Bliss —
one at full strength and one stamped off.
Using Berry Burst, I stamped the flower centers.
Then, I was back to Blackberry Bliss for the sentiment.
To finish my purse, I added some Rhinestones for a little bling.
