Box of Sunshine, Paper Pumpkin

Oh My Goodness! is last months Paper Pumpkin kit AWESOME or what? I don’t think I’ve ever used up all the extras that come with every kit.  This is a long post. All the extras I used were from what I already had in my craft room. I didn’t buy anything extra. Now the only thing I need to do is fill up my box with everything “yellow”. Who am I going to send this to?

This is how the kit was meant to be done. I made 4 of the eight cards, and decorated the box with the stickers that came with the kit.

But look at what I did with the other 4 cards.

First I made this gift card holder. I went to Paperpumpkin.com to get this idea and the next.  I ended up on Elizabeth Price’s blog. She made a gift card holder as one of her alternate projects. All you do is cut a slit 2″ up from the bottom. Fold it over to the inside for your gift card. Genius!

And then I saw this cute Water Bottle Treat. I just happened to have some Country Time Lemonade and that striped straw. The straw was in my “crafting” stash. It worked perfect for this project.

I added some of the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and some of the Flowers for All Season Gems. The clear ones look like water droplets.

And then I saw a shaker card by time4stamping.com. There was no directions, so I figured it out. It uses the Mason Jar Shaker Domes.

I know, it doesn’t look like the pineapple is big enough, but it is.

It’s easy!

Now you need a hole for the straw to go in. Probably should have done this BEFORE I put it together, but it worked out fine doing it last. Use your Paper Snips to make a hole in the dome. Put the straw through it.

And here are some more cards I made with the left over pieces and my own card bases. I used the colors in the kit, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce & Crushed Curry.

I used the Greenery Embossing folders on a couple of the cards.  Tasteful Label Dies too.

And this is what is left of my kit. Sticker sheets & a few sequins. Not bad. I’d say I got my monies worth, don’t you?

This months kit is looking like another one that you won’t want to miss. And there is an add-on kit too. WHAT? I wish last months kit had an add on.  You only have until July 10th to sign up for this kit.

July 3D Tutorial, Playful Pets Suite

July 2020 3D Bundle Tutorial Blog Hop

Hello everyone! It’s July and we have another fantastic 3D Bundle for you!  We’re celebrating with a blog hop! We’re each showcasing a second project we created using the same stamp set/or bundle we used in our 3D Bundle Tutorial Bundle Project.

The projects designed for the 3D Tutorial Bundle are totally exclusive and not available elsewhere online. In addition, you’ll receive both Imperial and Metric project measurements.  Here is a sneak peek for you.

This month we are featuring the Playful Pets Bundle in the new 2020-2021 Annual  Catalog, here is my second project. You need a card to go with your Dog Treat, right?

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Real Red Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″

3 3/4″ x 5″ Basic Black embossed with the Tasteful Textures EB Folder

2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ Playful Pets dsp (I used the red striped piece)

Scrap of Whisper White for the sentiment

Add the striped dsp to the back of the Embossed Black layer. Add Dimensionals to back and add to the card base.

Playful Pets Suite

I used my Stampin’ Write Marker to split up this sentiment. I first inked up the “I hope your day is”and stamped on a scrap of Whisper White and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. I cleaned the stamp and inked up “a real treat” and stamped then die cut using the Tasteful Label Dies. I also die cut one of the dogs from the dsp. I stamped the bowl and colored with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Both pieces are popped up with Dimensionals.

The dog has a bow from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack along with a Playful Pets Trinket. (the photo above shows this better).

Finished off with the Black & White Baker’s Twine also in that ribbon pack. I wrapped it around twice and tied into a bow. Added one of the labels from the Hippo & Friends to the inside.

Tutorials, monthly blog hop. You can go and check out the blog hop HERE!
