May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Samples - Sprinkled with Love

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing my alternative ideas for the May 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit - Sprinkled with Love.  Remember that those subscribing with me get a Project Sheet with step by step instructions for all these projects!  However, I do want to share a couple key tips that I found making these projects!

First, watch the SU! video for this before putting it together:

Additional Tips:
  • Put your stamps on the block and turn them stamp side up and ink then with the spot.  Do not put the ink on the table and press the stamps into them.  That is how you get the halos.
  • Make sure the seams of the cards are at the top for yours.  My samples are mostly sideways which will affect how the bows are tied.   It helps to knot twine first and then tie a bow.
  • When working with the icing, attach the top and bottom of the sticker and then it will lay back down flat.
  • These are standard envelope size so you can either put them in the envelope bags in the kit or you can mail them with a standard envelope. 
  • You can cut up the bags.  I found it easiest to cut 1/4" off of one side and laying it out flat and then cutting what I needed.  Cut the flap off - it's  a great decorative piece to use.
  • There are a white and a vanilla side to the flowers.  My first sample shows white and it should have been vanilla flowers.
  • Don't forget that you can use the ink spot to just ink up certain words on the stamps.  This gives you more options with most of the stamps as you will see in my samples!
Now on to the samples!  This is the original project that came with the kit.  It contained supplies for 9 cards (3 of each design) plus envelope bags.  It came with a saying based stamp set and a Soft Suede ink spot. 

Here are my alternative cards!

Card 1: Added the scallop to the side for the bite.

Card 2: Cut apart the bag and inked up just part of the stamp.

Card 3: Had to add Sprinkles to this one to make a shaker card.

Card 4: This card is based on a design by Jenny Peterson.  I switched the colors and the highlighted saying from her excellent sample!

Card 5: This card utilized the stickers in a different way.

Card 6: More playing with circle punches and our new Powder Pink In Color ink and cardstock.

Card 7: This card was designed by Leslie Benson.  You can see her video for making these awesome donuts HERE.  I changed my donut around a bit and some of the dimensions from her card but this card was the catalyst for most of my other creations.  Thank you Leslie!

Card 8: Use the sticker background to make a white frosting donut...

Card 9: This card is based on a design from Stampin' Up!  I layered my saying on the cut up bag flap and then cut a wavy pattern into my pink frosting to layer on the vanilla frosting piece (since I was out of card bases by now!)

Now here is my 3D idea for a gift card holder and mini card.  The mini card slides in the pocket of the envelope bag.  The bottom of the card uses the scrap from the circle and heart sticker sheet.  Ohs... get it?

And my personal favorite - a mini book with the bags.  I will make a video for this one when my refill arrives!  I inked up different words in the sayings to create my own sentiments like on the cover (didn't stamp Day) and some of the hearts through the book (combined the For You and With Love stamps.)  The inserts are 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 and contain 4 x 4 photos.  A great way to use the scraps leftover from making all the cards!
