Bouquet of Hope

July 23, 2021

Today I thought I would share the cards I made using up all of the bits and pieces in the Paper Pumpkin Bouquet of Hope which was released to the Australian market earlier this year. For this particular card design, I created one exactly the same as the directions in the kit and then I created two cards using an additional layer of Basic White card cut using the Stitched so Sweetly Dies. The dies are stamped with the bouquet image from the Bouquet of Hope stamp set. To colour the stamped images I used Flirty Flamingo, Just Jade, Merry Merlot, Bumblebee, Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers.

For this second card, I created one card the same as the directions in the kit. For the second card, I flipped the design to portrait but kept the layout the same. For the other three cards, I cut up the card base and used it like designer series paper on the cards, adding embossing with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder on one as well as some circle layers cut using the Layering Circle Dies. I used Thick Basic White and Just Jade card for the card bases.

For the next card, I created two cards as per the directions in the kit. For the next two, I used the card front to decorate the panels like designer series paper. I also cut the gold die cut in half so that I could use it on both cards. I added some of the twine to one and used the Double Oval Punch to add the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. The last card uses the back of the card base which I embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I cut Gold Foil card using one of the dies from the Encircled in Beauty Dies to add to the card front. The greeting is stamped onto a Basic White circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies. The additional card bases are cut from Merry Merlot and Thick Basic White card.

The last four cards are created by cutting up two envelopes and using the lining as Designer Series Paper. The pink cards have Basic White card embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and I have used the Layering Circle Dies to add the stamped image. They also have a piece of Rocco Rose card cut using one of the Basic Border Dies. The green cards have the die cut pieces from the Bouquet of Hope card kit which I didn’t use as per the directions. The card bases are Roccoco Rose which is now retired and Thick Basic White. I also used a layer of Mossy Meadow on the Basic White card bases.

I am very happy with these cards, and love that I could turn the ingredients for nine cards to create seventeen cards. The stamp set from this Paper Pumpkin kit is adorable with lovely sayings and images and I know that I will use it lots.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,
