The July 2022 Paper Pumpkin didn’t grab my attention right away! Maybe it is because I live in the midwest but I don’t gravitate towards beachy stuff – boats, lighthouses, sea life, etc. I have seen amazing projects with these images but it’s just not me. But then I created this kit and really enjoyed it because it gave me a chance to play with these images/looks with a small investment. I also stamped outside the box and that was fun!
The color scheme for these cards is amazing! I LOVE Bermuda Bay and Pool Party so much! This card above was my favorite! The greeting is great to have on hand to reach out to someone anytime! I stamped the envelope a little too! Eeeee I love it!
I myself wouldn’t use purples and reds together because it just doesn’t feel right but look at this card. It totally works! The collage of items together is super fun. Also for the twine around the bottle neck, I simply cut a piece and folded it in half. Then I wrapped it around and through the loop. Next I secured it on the back with adhesive. No knot or bow at all. The rustic look is just perfect!
This card was my least favorite but then I left the twine bow off and I liked it better. I don’t know but it just wasn’t fitting for me! There is nothing wrong with changing up the kit and doing your own thing!
I really enjoyed making these cards and can’t wait to send them out. In fact, I think I only have 2 or 3 left to send out. It’s always good to stamp different from your normal style.
