Hello my crafty friends! I am a little late with my post today. This Friday is my Paper Pumpkin Live event on Facebook, so this week on my blog is going to be all about Paper pumpkin! I am going to showcase all of my alternate projects…with the exception of 1 or 2 special ones that I am saving for Fridays Live event. Below is my card for today, but first I want to tell you a llittle bit about Paper Pumpkin just in case you are reading this and have no idea what I am talking about.
What exactly is Paper Pumpkin?
It’s a fabulous, fun papercrafting product in “kit form” (pre-cut, pre-scored, ready to assemble) wrapped up in pretty, soft blue tissue paper in a bright, red box that gets delivered right to your mailbox each month. And each kit includes a stamp set and ink that you can use again and again even after you’ve created everything within the kit!
How do I order Paper Pumpkin you ask…
Subscriptions start at just $22 per month (shipping included). Become a monthly subscriber today (“auto pay” from your credit card month to month) OR try it out by purchasing and redeeming prepaid kits. When you pre-pay, the kits still get delivered to your mailbox (once a month for the number of months you paid), but there are no further charges.
Regular Subscriptions…Click here to get started. Set up a Paper Pumpkin account, enter your payment and delivery information, and wait for your kits to begin arriving. Payments will be automatically processed shortly after the 10th of each month. Kits arrive on or around the 16th. You can cancel at any time.
Prepaid Subscriptions…You can pre-pay for 1, 3, 6, or 12 months by purchasing them on a regular order (online, through a party, directly with the demonstrator…). Click here to view and purchase a prepaid subscription online. Then set up a Paper Pumpkin account, enter your prepaid code and delivery information, and wait for your kits to begin arriving. Kits arrive on or around the 16th. If you find you enjoy the kits, you can always add your payment information and when the pre-paid subscription runs out, your account will convert to a regular subscription. If you do not want to continue receiving kits, simply do not enter you credit card info into your account.
Okay, okay…now onto the project for the week, my first alternate project.
Whenever I create my alternate projects, I try and use minimal extra products. This way I can really demonstrate the versatility of the kit contents. I used the Starfish stamp and Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana Ink to stamp some starfish and then I fussy cut them out.
For this card, I cut one of the kit card bases in half. This measures 3 1/2 X 2 1/4. I cut a piece of Crumb Cake to measure 4 X 2 3/4 and stamped the sand dollar image from the stamp set onto it in Gray Granite ink. I layered both of these pieces onto a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 Coastal Cabana Card Base.
I added a twine bow and some vellum coral to the card to finish it off.
