A Little Smile for the PPP Blog Hop

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

  • sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto one of the trimmed card fronts

  • sentiment in Old Olive ink onto the smallest trimmed card front

Assembled the card:

  • Copper Trim pulled apart in a few places, then glued along the seam where the two trimmed card fronts meet

Lemon Zest Bundle Bag of Drops

I got to go on the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip, a Mediterranean Cruise. While touring Positano, Italy, famous for their lemons and limoncello, I bought a bag of lemon drops. Wow! They were the best I’ve ever had! They didn’t last long after I got home, so I did an internet search. I found them – you can order them through Amazon.com! They aren’t cheap, and they doesn’t have fast shipping, but oh my, are they worth it! When I decided to give up one of my precious bags of lemon drops for a birthday gift, I knew the Lemon Zest bundle (Lemon Zest stamp set & Lemon Builder Punch) would be perfect. I couldn’t remove the label without destroying the bag, so I opted to cover it. Let me know what you think!

 

Here’s what I made:

Lemon Zest bundle, Lemon Builder Punch, Tutti-frutti Clips, bag of lemon drops, gift, food, candy,lemons,Life's Short Squeeze it for all it's worth, #stampcandyLemon Zest bundle, Lemon Builder Punch, Tutti-frutti Clips, bag of lemon drops, gift, food, candy,lemons,Life's Short Squeeze it for all it's worth, #stampcandyLemon Zest bundle, Lemon Builder Punch, Tutti-frutti Clips, bag of lemon drops, gift, food, candy,lemons,Life's Short Squeeze it for all it's worth, #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  •  Lemon Lime Twist card stock (CS) cut to 3″ x 6″, then scored in half at 3″

Stamped with the Lemon Zest stamp set:

  • 2 lemons in Daffodil Delight ink onto a scrap of Daffodil Delight CS, then immediately heat embossed them with clear embossing powder, to give them some texture
  • leaves in Lemon Lime Twist ink onto a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS
  • two sentiments – one of the front and one on the back – in Basic Black ink
  • NOTE: I used a Black Sharpie marker to add the dots at the ends of the lemons.

Cut using the Lemon Builder Punch:

  • lemons and leaves
  • stem from a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS, which I pressed onto the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad to darken it

Cut using the Envelope Punch Board:

  • rounded all four corners of the tag

Assembled the project:

  • burnished the fold in the tag with a Bone Folder
  • lemons and one leaf glued together, then adhered to the tag front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • remaining two leaves adhered to the lemons using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • stem glued to tag front, sticking out from under the lemons
  • lined up the tag over the original one, and adhered it using Tear & Tape
  • Lemon Lime Twist clip added on top for the finishing touch
