Lovely Perennial Lavender

I hope you were able to spend some time in your craft space this weekend. It was a busy weekend for me. I did make time to complete some projects I started, and now I have to schedule some organizational time in my space.

My card is a Paper Pumpkin alternative card. I used some of the supplies from the January Lovely Lavender Paper Pumpkin Kit, and added a few Perennial Postage die cut layers, and a sentiment from the Perennial Postage Stamp Set.

  • I enjoy receiving this little “surprise” in my mail box each month. I see exactly what you see before I receive the Kit… a few snippets of the project designs and colors.
  • When I open the Kit, I enjoy creating one or two of the projects as designed, but then I usually create other projects using the supplies in the Kit. The Kit is that versatile.
  • I put together the tag in the photo above according to the Kit instructions.
  • I decided to go my own way when I sat down to make the cards from the Kit instructions.
  • There’s always a new stamp set, a new ink color, and some form of adhesive or embellishment in the Kit. What I don’t use on the projects gets added to my supplies to be used on something else.
  • It’s a monthly “refresh” for me.

So, let’s make a card!

  • I cut a Basic White cardstock card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, and scored it at 4 1/4″ on the long side.
  • The Crumb Cake polka dot layer is one of the cards in the Paper Pumpkin Kit. I cut it in half and cut a layer 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Each of the patterned paper layers is die cut from card fronts in the Kit. I used the Perennial Postage Dies.
  • I stamped the white die cut layer with a stamp from the Kit and Lost Lagoon ink.
  • The Lost Lagoon leaves and the lavender stem are die cuts from the Kit.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Gorgeous Grape ink, fussy cut it, glued it to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock, then fussy cut it again.
  • I adhered all of the die cut elements to the card front with glue.
  • I attached the Linen Thread bow with a glue dot and adhered the sentiment layer on top of it with Dimensionals.

Below is a sampling of some of the cards I put together using supplies from the December “All The Best” Paper Pumpkin Kit. I practically doubled the amount of cards I was able to make by simply cutting my own card bases. It’s so easy to use the card bases included in the Kits as layers. It’s also fun to get creative with the elements and sentiment layers.

I used my own Basic White card base and added a Daffodil Delight cardstock layer to one of the card fronts in the Kit.
I stampedd my own sentiment on the inside of this card, and stamped one of the flowers from the Kit stamp set.
Not a big change to this card, except I added the floral element to one side of the circle.
The inside sentiment is another stamp I had, but the floral stamped images are from the Kit.
I pretty much followed the script on this card. I did add my own card base and trimmed the foiled layer.

So, give Paper Pumpkin a try for a month. I know you’ll enjoy adding your own personal style to the already beautiful designs. Remember …
