A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop You Are My Anchor

May 3, 2018 10 Comments

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin aka the artful inker. And today, I’m participating in the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop You Are My Anchor. The April 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit was just full of possibilities and our design team is excited to share the alternate ideas that we have come up with.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop You Are My Anchor, April 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit -- from theartfulinker.com

 

The April 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit contained:

  • 20 – 3″ x 3″ designer cards
  • 20 matching designer envelopes
  • 4 designer boxes
  • rope twine
  • 6 sheets of die cut tags and elements
  • exclusive You Are My Anchor stamp set
  • Island Indigo Stampin’ Spot
  • dimensionals and glue dots

For my alternate card, I used a 3″ x 11″ base of Island Indigo cardstock.

I tied the card closed with some of the Rope Twine from the kit.

Then, I used one of the foiled and die cut elements.

Using the You Are My Anchor stamp set, I stamped waves — one

at full strength and the second stamped off.

After adding “thanks”, I stamped the hearts in Calypso Coral — one

at full strength and one stamped off.

Inside this accordion fold, I’ve added one of the 3″ x 3″

designer cards from the kit.

It’s perfect for a short note!

Explosion Box

For my second alternate project, I created an explosion box.

The cards this month were perfect for this!

For the sides of my box, I used the Calypso Coral cards.

On the lid, I added one of the die cut life preservers and some rope twine.

Then, I used one of the foiled and die cut banners for the sentiment.

Inside, I added a little platform that holds a single Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

 

This box was super easy and I’ll be back the first of next week with directions.

    Love the fun fold idea and the little candy box is a fun surprise!

    • Sara Levin May 5, 2018 at 6:23 am

      Thanks Melissa! I think I’ll be using that fun fold again. It’s a great way to make a different small card.

  • monikastamp May 3, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    That’s the perfect little box for the candy – even a little truffle would fit in there.

    • Sara Levin May 4, 2018 at 4:47 am

      Thank you Monika! Ooh — there are so many yummy things that would go in the box.

  • Candy Ford May 3, 2018 at 6:44 pm
