Paper Pumpkin June 2021 Alternative Triangle Fold Card

I was inspired this week by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge to create a triangle fold card with the June 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. The kit coordinates with the Expressions in Ink bundle which is on my wish list. However, not having the bundle nor the DSP inspired me to create my version of the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of the paper has beautiful water color images with foil. This is the side I recreated using Gilded Leafing, Versamark and Heat and Stick powder.

Evergreen as my card base. For the triangle layers I used Just Jade and retired Purple Posy. I meant to use Fresh Freesia but somehow managed to select retired Purple Posy from my paper file.  Oh well I still think it turned out like I wanted.   On the Just Jade triangle layer I stamped the watercolor image in Evening Evergreen.  Some images I stamped at full strength and some I stamped off to create texture in the watercolor image.  For the Purple Posy I stamped the watercolor image in Fresh Freesia using the same technique of stamping full strength then stamping off.  I then used the Versamark pen to outline some of the watercolor images then used Heat and Stick powder to adhere the Gilded Leafing.

I used the die cut foliage from the kit and a die from the Tasteful Labels set to stamp the flower image from the Paper Pumpkin kit in Versamark and heat emboss with gold.  I then colored the flower with Polished Pink and the leaves with Just Jade using a blender pen.  I adhered the die cut foliage to the die cut label and finished with a bow in Soft Succulent.  The inside of the card I used the birthday sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set an stamped the flowers from the images from the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I also used the flower images to stamp on the envelope with Polished Pink.

Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Alternative Birthday Card

I’m loving the Paper Pumpkin kits!  With the Lovely Day February kit you can make three card versions.  I made one of the cards using the Paper Pumpkin instructions and was then inspired by a friend’s card which she made with the tri-fold card but with a twist.  She made the top part of the tri-fold card for holding a gift card but then added a layer at the back for stamping a birthday sentiment and including a personal note.  My card was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I’ll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

For my project I was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Lovely Lipstick, Mint Macaron and Gorgeous Grape and the January I’ll Be Yours Paper Pumpkin kit.  From the kit I used the tag, baker’s twine,envelope and 3″ x 3″ Mint Macaron card.  I also, used the floral stamp from the kit to stamp in white StaysOn on Lovely Lipstick then punched it out with the heart punch.   I sponged Mint Macaron and Gorgeous Grape on the background layer then adhered the envelope.   The Mint Macaron card may be also used to write a personal message.  This project was so easy since all the elements except the heart and background layer were included in the kit.
