Hope Box August Paper Pumpkin & July PP Alternatives

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

I'm excited to share with you some alternative card ideas for the July Paper Pumpkin Kit called Expressions in Color and introduce the August Kit called "Hope Box".  It's a special-edition kit created by Shelli.  Please find the details on this kit below.  To order your Hope Box click here, Lesley's Online Store Paper Pumpkin Kits before August 10th.  Paper Pumpkin is an excellent way to create with a monthly subscription, everything you need is in one box, how simple is that!

The great thing about Paper Pumpkin is the unique supplies that come in every kit, there's always something a little different for you to mix and match as you wish.  Here are a few alternative card ideas using the Expression In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit.   


Change up the colours as you wish.  I chose Basic Grey for the Merci card, Flirty Flamingo for the Thanks card, Thick Basic White and Bermuda Bay for the two floral cards.

Assembly & Trix:

*  The velum sentiment is glued onto cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, (glue), fussy cut out, and then adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.  ***Trix, adhere the cutouts to the back of the sentiment first, using Stampin' Seal adhesive and then adhere to the velum layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Adhere the velum to the card using glue only where the sentiment is.  Carefully adhere other areas of the velum using tiny bits of glue, using the pattern to hide the glue.

*  The velum can be coloured on the reverse using Stampin' Blends Markers.  I chose Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and Granny Apple Green and then spritzed my colouring with 99% Rubbing Alcohol to create the blending of colour.  For the last card I used Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green.  

*  Wink of Stella always adds that little extra zing.  These cards were hard to photograph to capture the colours just right and pick up on the Wink Of Stella, I needed the sunshine in the backyard.
