Paper Pumpkin Birthdays

October 29, 2021

Today’s cards are created using the last of the card bases from the Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin kit. You have seen previous creations using the other two card bases here and here. I needed to make a birthday card for my granddaughter who is turning 13 today. How quickly the years go! I attached the patterned card to the centre of Basic White card and then scored and folded Evening Evergreen card.

I stamped the image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Fresh Freesia, Ivory, Bronze, Dark Polished Pink and Light Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends. I attached the stamped and coloured panel to Evening Evergreen card and then the card front. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Artistically Inked stamp set onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink and cut it out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I attached the greeting to Evening Evergreen card and then the card front, just covering the bottom of the stamped and coloured image. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink. I stamped the small floral image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set beside the greeting and coloured it using the Dark Polished Pink and Light Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends.

The card base in this instance is Evening Evergreen and I decided to cut up the card base and emboss the panels using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The panels are attached to Basic White card and then scored and folded Evening Evergreen ink. The layout is the same as the first card with the stamped image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and the greeting from the Artistically Inked stamp set. The images are coloured using a combination of Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Dark Fresh Freesia and Light Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends. The insides of the cards are decorated with the same greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the small floral image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set.

I am so happy with the way these cards turned out. It’s amazing what you can do when you let your imagination run wild! You can see the variations I made using each of the other cards from the kit here and here.

Bye for now,

Kris
