Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards- July 2022 – Sending Good Thoughts

Sometimes a Paper Pumpkin Kit just touches your creative side – and this July kit certainly has for me. I have created 3 simple alternatives, and have more ideas swirling – just not enough time to stamp yet. Here are the 3 extra cards I have created so far.

All three cards use the leftover bottle frames as a template to create new bottles. Below I’ll let you know exactly which outline and which colours were used.

This first card I used Balmy Blue ink and a Blending Brush to create the bottle. You can see the bottom even has a bit of a roundness to it. I created that by inking the edges of the bottle outline, then flipping the bottle frame upside down and using the bottom of the bottle to create the same curve at the bottom and then inking it a bit more. Once all that is done, dfussy cut the bottle. I simply used Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to create the cork.

The second card has bottles of 2 different colours. The bottle on the left and the small one are Balmy Blue, and the other bottle is Pool Party. I made sure to mask off the edges of the bottles a bit more since the two large bottles were being inked onto the layer and not cut out. Then I fussy cut the ship and mounted it on a piece of Vellum cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The final bottle was created using Smoky Slate Ink and a Blending Brush. The cork was created using Crumb Cake marker. All three cards were embellished with 2021-23 In Colour Opal Rounds.
