I don’t play with my Paper Pumpkin Stamp Sets much after I do the kit….it’s kind of sad isn’t it???? These sets are super fun and I love using them for the kit but then they go in a box and I forget about them! 🙁 I saw a sample similar to this one and just HAD to pull that stamp set back out of the box! I love it!!!! You can do this in soooo many different color combinations!
I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the flower from the March Paper Pumpkin Kit in Tangerine Tango and the leaves in Cucumber Crush! I went across the card front diagonal and it totally looked like a twisted ribbon where it went wide every inch or so. The more I tried to fix it, the more it just looked the same only wider so I stopped. For the greeting, I used the same set and stamped it in Tangerine Tango. I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and the sponged the edges with Cucumber Crush and a Sponge Dauber! I wanted a little pop of color to off set the greeting. I added a little loop of Cucumber Crush Lace Trim behind the greeting and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Love it!
This card is quick and simple and fairly cheap to create since there aren’t any layers, not a lot of adhesive and scraps of ribbon and cardstock can be used for the greeting! You can change the colors to make the recipient’s favorite color!!! I can’t wait to try purple!
What color would you use to create this card? Let me know in the comments below! If you want to see more samples of Paper Pumpkin, click here! If you would like to get your own Paper Pumpkin Kit, click here to get signed up for the June Kit!
