Paper Pumpkin Samples - Positively Picturesque

Greetings everyone!  Today I'm bringing you some Paper Pumpkin creations from our July 2017 kit - Positively Picturesque.  I loved this kit.  Whether you signed up for $5 during the special or got it for full price, this kit was packed with creative opportunities.  The kit contained a stamp set, two ink spots in Soft Sky and Tranquil Tide, two rolls of washi tape in Powder Pink and Soft Sky, and enough supplies to make 8 cards!

The original samples from the kit were very eye catching.  These are cards you have to hand deliver or pay additional postage to hand sort to make sure the wood pieces get where they are going without breaking.  Some demonstrators recommend turning the cards inside out when you mail them or including bubble wrap or chipboard to keep the mail delivery process from snapping them!

As for alternative ideas, I had to go to some of my favorite demonstrators to get my creativity pumping.  This always happens when I really like the kits - I have a hard time doing additional ideas because I want to make them as they are!

The first idea came from a very talented demonstrator, Jenny Peterson.  She always comes up with a card for her subscribers and shares it on Creative Corner.  This card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and I love how she shadowed the two ink colors by stamping Soft Sky first and then offsetting the Tranquil Tide image.

The second card came from Suzanne at SuNNStampin'.  She did a great video with multiple ideas that inspired me.  This card is almost directly copied from her's - I just changed out the sentiment and the stamping a little bit.  This card uses Powder Pink and Berry Burst.

I also liked the way she did the waterfall of different colored sunbursts.  I wanted to stick mostly with the kit on this one so I turned the blue notecard inside out so I could work on the white side and created this little beauty.  The great part of getting two colors is that you can double ink your images.

Finally, I saw a cute card with a bouquet of tulips on Pinterest and when I tried to make it, I landed on this card instead and I love it!  How great of a card to do in both colors to send out to people for multiple occasions.  This card uses Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist.
