More Expressions in Color

October 22, 2021

This week has all been about the Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin Kit which is available for purchase now. These Paper Pumpkin Kits are amazing and I wish we were able to get them every month but I’ll take them whenever I can! Today I have another three cards for you which I made using just one card base from the kit. I cut the card from the kit in half and cut one half down to fit my card front and embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed panel to Evening Evergreen card and then scored and folded Thick Basic White card.

I cut Basic White card using the beautiful floral die from the Artistic Dies and attached it to the embossed card. I stamped “congratulations” from the stamp set included in the kit onto one of the labels using the Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Spot also included in the kit.

The label is the one the instructions for the kit use for this card. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I cut Bumblebee card using the same die from the and attached it to the bottom left hand corner of the inside of the card. This particular card comes with a vellum over lay and I attached it to the remaining piece of the card base and then cut it in half.

I attached the vellum pieces to Basic White card. I stamped the background image from the included stamp set twice onto the Basic White part of the card front using the included Bumblebee Stampin’ Spot. I did stamp the images onto scrap paper first, so that it was lighter. I stamped the small leaf from the included stamp set several times over the background image using the included Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Spot.

I wrapped the top of the vellum piece using Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon and attached the panels to either scored and folded Bumblebee card or Evening Evergreen card. I cut the leaf die cuts included in the kit for this particular card into pieces. I layered one piece from each die cut onto the card front. I stamped the greeting from the included stamp set onto labels from the kit once using the Bumblebee Stampin’ Spot and once using the Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Spot. I threaded a length of the Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon to create “tails” and attached the greetings using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the background image onto Basic White card, for one card I used Bumblebee ink and for the other Evening Evergreen ink which was stamped onto scrap paper first. I attached the remaining pieces of the die cuts over the stamped background.

Again I am so happy with how these variations turned out. The amazing thing about these kits is that they are fantastic for beginners but can also be used by Avid stampers (like myself) to upscale the basic components. I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
