Welcome to The Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!! I am so excited to be a part of this new hop that my good friend Andrea and Pam put together and asked me to participate! We are starting off with the most awesome Paper Pumpkin kit ever!! This month's kit, A Sara Thing was designed by Stampin Up's CEO, Sara Douglass and it is FABULOUS!! We will inspire you with all kinds of fantastic projects using this month's kit!
These are the projects that this month's kit makes (I know this pic has the "play" button--it is not a video just a pic). The projects are ADORABLE and super fun! The kit includes TONS of stuff--it makes 12 cards--4 of each design. It also includes a paint brush, a mini set of watercolor pencils, glitter flowers, a stamp set, a roll of washi tape, and all the pre-cut pieces needed to create these cards. Make sure you scroll to the end of my projects to find out how you can get one of these kits FREE!!!!!
Gather Your Supplies:
- April 2017 A Sara Thing Paper Pumpkin Kit
- 1/2 Sheets of Lemonlime Twist (or Whipser White since you don't have it yet! ;))
- Layering Circles Framelits
- Eastern Medallion Thinlits (coming May 1st for Customers!!)
- Black Cardstock (3 5/8 x 4 /8")
- Watercolor Paper ( 3 1/2 x 4 3/4") for Best Freiend Card
For my first project, carefully open one of the envelopes and trim to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4" to create card. I also die cut the Medallion image in black cardstock. This framelit will be coming in May as part of a super awesome customer special!!
This card was done much in the same way, however I just stamped the sentiment on the sticker panel and adhered it to the card and added the purple glitter flower.
For this card, I created a watercolor background by mixing the yellow and blue colored pencils on scrap paper and mixed with water and the paint brush. I added a little more yellow to keep the lime color light.
