April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Samples - A Sara Thing

This month's Paper Pumpkin kit was one of my favorite.  I love watercoloring with pencils and I love the embossed resist technique.  Putting them together is awesome and offered customers easy access to these types of projects.



These are the three projects that were designed for the kit with instructions.





Additional card ideas are below.  My customers will get step by step instructions on how to create these projects using their Paper Pumpkin kits.

Color the whole heart with Melon Mambo.  Then add the Rich Razzleberry pencil just on one side of each section.  Watercolor with a tiny bit of water to get the shading.



I couldn't get the heart to look like it transitioned from pink to purple like Sara did, so I just went with coloring the whole heart with the Daffodil Delight pencil and then shaded it with the Mambo and Pacific Point to make this heart.  I cut one of the white strips in half and added washi to the top.  Then I stamped it with Happy Birthday to and stamped "You" on the inside.


I wanted to see what I could do with the large piece of watercolor paper but I didn't want to work around the print in the corner.  So I turned it over and stamped several flowers in the Archival Black ink.  Any flowers would do but these are from the So In Love stamp set.  I colored the center yellow and the outer leaves pink.  Then I colored the middle with both pencils to make the peach color.  Remember that this doesn't have the embossed edge to hold in the water so you barely use any or use a blender pen.


I also did a few 3D.  One of them will be posted later when I print the photos for it but the other is a Gift Card Holder.  You fold your envelope in half and cut it in half.  Then you seal one of them and stamp just the Happy Birthday.  Then cut apart the half that is left and make the insert for your gift card.
