Sweet Sunflowers A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop
August 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative 1
Without a doubt, the Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit is one of my all time favorite kits. It is simply beautiful!!
Sometimes when I’m making alternatives for Paper Pumpkin I’m trying to make the kit something different — more in line with my style. And sometimes, I’m trying to get more from the elements in the kit. Either approach is valid.
This month, I am definitely trying to “get more” from the elements. This first card uses pieces from two of the card bases from the kit.
Then, I added some easy watercolor sunflowers and leaves. You can see the technique in the video below.
And I finished with a small punched tag using the Best Label Punch and adding the stamped sentiment.
August 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative 2
For this second Paper Pumpkin alternative, I used part of one of the beautiful envelopes in the kit. I say part because I cut it into three pieces and will be using the remaining pieces for additional cards.
Then, I used my favorite Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a couple of elements. These dies are a basic for anyone’s die collection. And, they work perfectly here to add a little subtle detail to highlight the sentiment.
