Another Crop of One in a Melon Cards

Just a few more ideas for the June Paper Pumpkin kit coming your way.  I was inspired by a card created by Jenny Peterson for Creative Community.  This site has all sorts of inspirations for demonstrators and I really liked the look of the layout. So much so, in fact, that I created these three cards using it!

I love using the largest circle framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits with this kit.  It's perfect for the watermelon but adds just a little extra something to every card I use it with.

This card utilizes the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad and some White Accents.  Simple and quick on purpose.  Even looking at it, I can see how you could use the polka dot embossing folder for more circles or adding some twine but I wanted this to be a super quick card.

Then I used the supplies from the kit with the same layout but included twine like Jenny's sample did.  If you are punching tissue paper, make sure you layer it on a piece of cardstock first so it cuts instead of tears.  I'm going to make a lot of these with my refill kit - just love them for my summer birthdays!

Then I decided to use the designer print on the notecard for the card but made a mistake and ended up with this lovely little layout!  I love the 12" of Melon Mambo thread tied around the stitched circle.
