A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Broadway Star

June 28, 2018 6 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  And today, I’m happy to have you here so that I can share a couple of alternative ideas for the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  In fact, the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Broadway Star is today!  So let’s take a look at what I’ve created.  Then, you’ll want to check what the rest of the design team has put together.  And if you’re not already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can sign up while you’re here.  Just click the Paper Pumpkin icon in the sidebar and select me (Sara Levin) as your demonstrator — thanks!

For my alternative card design, I put together this Congrats card.

First, I added a Basic Black card base.

Then, I trimmed one of the Black and White card bases

into a layer size.

Next, I ran one of the white die cut banners (backing on) through the Big Shot

with the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder.

Over that, I added a figure eight of black and gold baker’s twine

from the kit.

After cutting a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock with the largest

Stitched Shapes Circle, I embossed the small star image from the

Broadway Star stamp set.

Then, I used my Stamparatus (see below for my special offer) to line up the “congrats”

on one of the white die cut strips from the kit.

I adhered it with a piece of Foam Adhesive Strip.

Finally, I added a few adhesive back gold sequins from the kit.

 

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Broadway Star Treat Box

I always like to create some sort of favor using part of my Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I just love having little things to share with friends for no special reason!

To make my treat box or favor, I used half of one of the designer envelopes

included in the kit.

Then, I created the striped banner using the pieces I had trimmed away

from the layer for my card.

Next, I added some of the black and gold baker’s twine.

(But, I really want to hoard that stuff!)

Over the twine, I added a stitched Lovely Lipstick circle.

And for the sentiment, I reached back to my Manly Moments stamp set.

A little masking and I have the “for you”.

Now to add some chocolates!

    Great idea running that white banner through the big shot. I like that so much better. And the half envelope into a treat box – that’s a great trick too. Thanks for both of your ideas.

    • Sara Levin July 5, 2018 at 7:08 pm

      Thanks Monika! Sometimes is just a little detail that can make all the difference.

  • Candy Ford June 28, 2018 at 11:32 pm

    Wow, dry embossing AND heat embossing – great way to step up the cards in the kit. Nice job!

    • Sara Levin June 29, 2018 at 12:47 am

      Thanks Candy! Sometimes it’s good to go back to basics.

  • Anita Falcone June 28, 2018 at 10:33 pm
