Stampin’ Up! included an extra stamp set in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. It’s big and has 2-step stamps (which I love). I had to make something with it right away. A sneak peak of that extra stamp set posted last month:
I took out my favorite Memories and More Assorted Cards and Envelopes and got to work. I used all of the 2021-2023 In Colors and a piece of Polished Pink card stock (and some Basic White). I also added in some ribbon from this month’s Paper Pumpkin, as well as those cute iridescent gems.
I used the larger card in the card pack – these measure 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ – a little bigger than the usual cards I make. I cut a piece of Polished Pink card stock to 3 3/4″ x 5 3/4″. I cut Basic White pieces to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ x 1 1/4″.
On the larger Basic White piece, I stamped the flower in Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia – the leaves are Soft Succulent. I used one of the background stamps and stamped sporadically in all of the colors. I affixed that to the upper portion of the Polished Pink piece. I stamped the sentiment on the smaller Basic White piece in Polished Pink and affixed that to the lower portion of the Polished Pink piece. I wrapped a 6″ length of ribbon around the space in between (securing to the back using regular transparent tape) and tied a bow. I used a glue dot to adhere the bow and two glue dots to give the tails of the ribbon some dimension. I finished off with a few of those gems included in the PP kit.
Pretty easy – and I think the color combos can go on and on and on…..ha!
