April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Paper_pumpkin_april_2019_3

April Paper Pumpkin Alternative made utilizing the kit contents as well as supplies from Stampin' Up! general catalog.

Cut Whisper White thick card stock 5 x 7, score at 3.5 to make a note card base

Stamp the rose from the April Paper Pumpkin kit onto copy paper and cut out to make a "mask"
(HINT - When cutting out the mask cut just slightly inside the printed edge so the mask is about 1/16th of an inch smaller all around. This eliminates the gap between images when stamping the layers. Also, use copy paper not card stock as card stock is too thick and the image won't stamp sell at the edges)

Use So Saffron, ink the rose well, stamp off once onto scrap paper then stamp on the card in the center.

Use Tombow repositional adhesive on the back of the rose mask and attach the mask over the So Saffron image.

Clean the stamp well between colors and ink the stamp next with Calypso Coral ink. Again, ink it well and then stamp it off once before stamping it on the card. This color can go either to the left or right of the first image.

Stamp a couple of leaf images using the same technique of inking well then stamping off and then stamping on the card.

Next, clean the rose stamp and ink with Flirty Flamingo using the same process as above add the third rose to the other side.

Add some more leaf images.

Stamp the sentiment with Momento Black ink onto one of the tags with the So Saffron border and attach to the card front with dimensionals.

After completing the card I took the markers in in each of the flower colors and using the brush tip, holding it straight up so just the tip touched the card I added the tiny dotted centers to the flowers and it made them look even better.
