Box of Sunshine

October 15, 2020

Yesterday in my Facebook Live, I shared the gorgeous Paper Pumpkin Kit which we are currently able to purchase – The Box of Sunshine. You get enough supplies in the Kit to create two cards each of four designs, a stamp set, Mini Black ink, sequins, glue dots & dimensionals. You also get enough die cut supplies to decorate the front of the box so that it can be gifted to someone special. After all that you still have lots of die cuts left over to get creative with. So today I am sharing two cards I made using up some of the left-over bits and pieces.

To create the backgrounds for today’s card, I used Fluid 100 Watercolour paper. I sprayed the watercolour paper with water and used the largest Water Painter to add Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade ink to one piece and Crushed Curry and Shaded Spruce to the other.

I let my paper dry over night and then trimmed each piece to fit on scored and folded Thick Whisper White card. For the Crushed Curry/Poppy Parade background, I added a large die cut piece of Black and White card. I also attached one sun die cut and one pineapple die cut to the card front.

I stamped “Sunshine” and “sending” from the supplied stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Black ink. I trimmed down the Whisper White card and punched one end using the Triple Banner Punch. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of this card, I attached one set of die cut leaves and one lemon die cut.

I also stamped another greeting from the supplied stamp set using Basic Black ink. For the Crushed Curry/Spruce card, I attached one pineapple die cut with a strip of the black and white card over the top.

I attached a second pineapple using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the supplied stamp set onto Whisper White using Basic Black ink. I trimmed down the card and punched both ends using the Triple Banner Punch before attaching the greeting to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a sun die cut and stamped another greeting from the supplied stamp set using Basic Black ink. I love the backgrounds on these cards, such a fun technique to play with and one I should use more often. I still have a few die cuts left from this kit so will share more cards soon.

Just so you can compare, here they are together. Pretty aren’t they?

Bye for now,

Kris
