My Paper Pumpkin is a fun 'creativity kit in the mail' program that you need to try! Especially this month since it's only $10 (50% off the regular cost) for the first two months!!
Two days ago I posted some ideas with the kit I just got this month. Here are a few more projects I made using the new August My Paper Pumpkin, Pedal Praise.
With this card, I folded one of the card base pieces the opposite way so the dot design was on the inside, then folded the top back over so the dots appeared again.
To get this moving bike image, stamp your bike. Then without re-inking, move your bike back a bit and stamp again, move it back a bit again and stamp, etc. until your ink fades. I think I stamped the bike down about 7-8 times.
Rhinestones really brighten up your cards, pages and projects. I recommend that you invest in a pack or two if you don't own any currently. You can make the dullest creations come to life with just a little sparke. And that was the only extra product I used on this card. The August Paper Pumpkin kit comes with everything else – banners, 2 inks, 2 stamps, card stock, yellow strip stickers, and envelopes (enough supplies for 4 cards shown on my post two days ago).
For this next card, I didn't use ANY extra supplies. I just got a little creative with the scissors. 🙂
Isn't the bike flag adorable?!
This last one is a mini album. You can see I added the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (wood-mount or clear-mount), some coodinating Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched Ribbon, coordinating card stocks (Raspberry Ripple and Bermuda Bay), and Raspberry Ripple Classic ink. The Bermuda Bay cover is 11" x 5-3/4". Score at 3-1/2" and 3-5/8" from one end (this will become the top flap) and at 2-3/4" and 2-7/8" from the other end (this will become the bottom flap).
The envelope flaps are all reversed so that each envelope is open and each one can stick to the one behind it. This way you can place photos on the card stock that is inserted into the envelopes to make your mini album complete.
