Hello and welcome to my blog for my second blog post for today. This month’s kit was a super cute kit that featured Fall themed gift bags and tags. We also had the option of purchasing a matching add on kit also. This months Paper Pumpkin Kit was titled Gift of Fall. I shared earlier this kit and the projects from that kit earlier today you can click here to see that post. For my alternative projects this month I came up with three super cute projects. Here’s a look at my projects.
I came up with three cards and a super cute little box using additional products along with products from this month’s kit. The first card I came up with was the Pretty Peacock card here.
I started out with a piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2). I stamped the leaf image from this month’s stamp set all around the card base in Pretty Peacock ink.
Next I added one of the white tags in the center of the card. I then added the crushed curry circle from this month’s kit to the center of the banner with a few stampin’ dimensionals. I then added two of the vellum leaves one of the pretty peacock striped leaf and one of the craft leaf. I added all the leaves with mini glue dots tucked under the crushed curry circle with the multicolored branches on it.
I then stamped my sentiment on one of the banners in Merry Merlot and added that to the center of the circle using stampin’ dimensionals. I then added a few of the gold self adhesive sequins to the card front. I added some of the crushed curry seam binding ribbon that I made into a bow and attached with a mini glue dot.
To finish off my card I added a piece of whisper white cardstock that I stamped the branch on the left hand side in pretty peacock ink. This finished off my first card.
Next I created the little box using some Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the Perfect Parcel dies. It took one piece of cardstock to create this box. Once I had everything cut out I used the Golden Glitz Delicata ink and stamped the branch around the side of the box.
Once I had the pieces cut out stamped and the ink dried I added some tear and tape and put the box together. Once it was together I created my tag for the box. I used one of the crushed curry circles for the main part of the tag along with one of the labels. I stamped my sentiment on the tag and added it to the circle using stampin’ dimensionals. I then added some of the Crushed Curry Seam binding to around the box and tied it in a pretty bow. I added the tag to the top of the box with dimensionals attached to the ribbon that way I could slide the tag and ribbon off without having to untie it.
I finished this project off by adding a few of the gold self adhesive sequins to the tag and around the circle.
For the third project today I created another card that matched my little box. I used a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).
