Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog HopS

It’s time for the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile, and it everything you need for 16 gift cards & envelopes and a box to keep them in. I’ve used the kit components to create a full size card and a tag for a treat bag. 

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great alternate projects this group has made using this month’s A Little Smile kit!

Here’s what I made:

I’m out of town at a craft retreat and don’t have my lightbox, so my photos look different than usual.

The card: I tried to create a reflection of mountains and sky. It isn’t a perfect mirrored image, but I think you get the idea.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

The treat bag: I made a simple tag that matched the card, and attached it using a copper library clip from the Tags & More Accessory Kit. A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Old Olive CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • two cards fronts from the kit cut to 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • one card front from the kit cut to 2″ x 2-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the A Little Smile stamp set:

  • sand dollars in Coastal Cabana ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • starfish in Crumb Cake ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • coral in Old Olive ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto one of the trimmed card fronts
  • mirrored sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto the other trimmed card front
  • sentiment in Old Olive ink onto the smallest trimmed card front

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • two larger trimmed card fronts glued onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • Copper Trim pulled apart in a few places, then glued along the seam where the two trimmed card fronts meet
  • Old Olive CS layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the bag:

  • sentiment glitter sand dollar die cut glued onto the smallest trimmed card front, above the sentiment
  • top of a Copper Dotted Treat Bag folded over and burnished with a Bone Folder
  • smallest trimmed card front clipped onto the top of the treat bag using a Copper Library Clip
