Paper Pumpkin April 2019 Alternative
T his is an alternative project for April 2019 Paper Pumpkin and requires supplies not included in the kit as well as utilizing kit contents.
Cut Whisper White Thick card stock 7" by 5", score at 3.5 to make a 3.5 x 5 greeting card
Use the H clear block placing 3 individual drops of glycerin gel spaced across the block.
Using one of 3 individual stamp sponge pieces dip the sponge onto the ink pad and then stir into the gel, then add some swirls of color randomly around the edges of the base card front. Do this with each color, Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron using a different sponge for each color.
HINT: Using the glycerine gel makes the color go onto the card stock much smoother not leaving "swirl" marks but just a smooth daub of color.
Now open up one of the envelopes that came with the kit that has the Calypso Coral design inside, tear open the sides of the envelope to reveal a nice big section of printed paper. Cut the large section 2 7/8 x 4 1/4. Attach this piece to the card base with Snail.
Use the Stitched Rectangular Die that will cut a piece finished size 2 5/8 x 4.
Place a couple drops of water onto a clear block, wet a small paint brush in the water, then dip the brush onto the Mint Macaron ink pad then tap the brush on the edge of your finger flicking some droplets of color onto the stitched shape piece. Rinse the brush and repeat with Flirty Flamingo.
Attach this piece with Snail to the base card front centering it on the printed piece that has already been attached.
Stamp the rose with Flirty Flamingo and 2 leaves with Mint Macaron onto Whisper White card stock and cut out with scissors.
HINT: To get the best image with the distinctive stamps use the bone folder or a spoon to push the ink to one end of the stamp pad. This keeps the ink from being too thick on the stamp and leaves a more distinct image.
Attach the leave with glue dots, the rose with dimensionals.
Use a tag from the kit to stamp the sentiment of your choice and attach with dimensionals.
