A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Picnic Paradise

July 26, 2018 4 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today, I’m hopping with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing design team.  We’re here to share alternate ideas for the July Paper Pumpkin Kit.  So, let’s get started with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Picnic Paradise!

This month’s Picnic Paradise kit.

For my alternate Picnic Paradise card, I added a Granny Apple Green

base and layer.

On the layer, I stamped with the stitched image in Soft Suede.

Then, I used one of the 3″ x 3″ Crumb Cake cards in the kit and

embossed it with the Basket Weave folder.

Before adding it to the card, I cut a banner end.

Next, I added two strips from the gingham cotton paper.

Using one of the die cut apples, I coated it with Fine Tip Glue.

Doing this gave it sheen and made it look like a dimensional epoxy sticker.

After tucking in one of the leaf stickers, I added a banner stamped with “thank you”.

This card makes me think back to school or teacher thank you.

 

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Picnic Paradise Favor

Since I loved the little baskets in the kit so much,

I created a basket alternate from Crumb Cake cardstock.

These are a great way to get extra mileage from the Picnic Paradise stamp set.

I’ll be giving baskets of goodies right on through the Fall.

To stamp the sides of my basket, I used the weave pattern image.

It was easy to line up rows and to match the sides as well.

For the picnic cloth, I used a piece of tissue paper and stamped

just a portion of the weave pattern in Granny Apple Green.

After inserting a cellophane bag to hold my goodies,

I tied it closed with the bakers twine from the kit

and a piece of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave ribbon.

For the tag, I used an embossed piece of the 3″ x 3″ card from above

that I had trimmed away.

Using my 3/4″ Circle Punch, I punched smaller blueberries and leaves from the die cut sheets.

Over those, I added a banner stamped with “Enjoy” and a Clear Basic Rhinestone accent.
