Sentimental Rose Projects for APPT April 2019 Blog Hop

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - alternate projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kits

It’s time for the APPT April 2019 Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Sentimental Rose, and includes all you need to make 9 beautiful cards AND a box to put them in. Be sure to hop around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great alternative projects you can make with this month’s kit.  

S

Here’s what I made:

A flatware/napkin holder and a card for a wedding shower. Since these were the only napkins I had with pink in them, I took the color (Lemon Lime Twist) from them for the projects. The Lemon Lime Twist card base and the Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed sequins are the only things you see that didn’t come in the kit. (I put the sequins on the box, but forgot to put them on the card before I took the photo. Oops!)

Sentimental Rose April kit for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop. Alternate projects made by Candy Ford - card and naapkin/flatware holder for a wedding shower. #stampcandy

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock (CS) cut to 5-12″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • acrylic box from the kit cut down from 5-1/4″ long to 4″ long – just cut off one end of the box

Stamped with the Sentimental Rose stamp set:

  • sentiment in Gray Granite ink onto a die cut tag from the kit

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • corrugated piece glued onto the front of the card base
  • printed piece from the kit adhered over the corrugated piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • left half of sentiment glued onto the printed piece, and the right half adhered onto the corrugated piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 3 Lemon Lime Twist sequins applied onto the card front (Oops! I forgot to put these on the card before I took the photos.)

Assembled the flatware holder:

  • burnished the folds in the cut down acrylic box with a Bone Folder
  • folded in the flaps on the bottom end to form the holder
  • long corrugated piece wrapped around the bottom of the holder and adhered the ends together with the attached peel and stick adhesive (This helps the holder stand up.) If you feel the need, you can put a couple of glue dots under the back of the corrugated piece to hold it to the acrylic box.
  • adhered a printed piece onto the corrugated piece and the acrylic holder using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 3 Lemon Lime Twist sequins applied onto the front of the holder
  • napkin and flatware inserted into holder

Judy’s Tufted Window Wedding Card

Judy Newsome made this lovely window card for our Candy Hearts card swap last month. The theme was wedding/anniversary. She used the Piece of Cake stamp set for the sentiment and for inside the window. The background texture comes from the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, and it’s highlighted by some Pearl Basic Jewels. You can see how she made it and what she used below.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what Judy did:

Cut and scored with her Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Balmy Blue card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Balmy Blue CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • center from Balmy Blue CS layer using a plain oval die
  • same plain oval die to cut a scrap of Whisper White CS, then cut around that hole using a scalloped oval die, to create the white frame

Die cut using the Needlepoint Elements Framelits:

Stamped with the Piece of Cake stamp set:

  • sentiment in Balmy Blue ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • cake stamp, cake, and cake topper in Balmy Blue ink onto the larger Whisper White CS
  • NOTE: lay the Blamy Blue CS layer with the oval cut out over the Whisper White CS layer to determine where the images should be stamped. The Stamparatus makes easy work of getting the images in just the right place.

Embossed using the Tufted embossing folder:

  • Balmy Blue CS layer

Cut using the Detailed Trio Punch:

  • all four corners of the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base with the floral design and with the rounder

Assembled the window card:

  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • embossed Balmy Blue CS layer glued onto the Whisper White CS layer, making sure the cake image shows through
  • Whisper White frame glued around the oval window in the Balmy Blue CS layer
  • tied a piece of ribbon through each end of the die cut sentiment
  • NOTE: She used Balmy Blue ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, which is a Sale-a-bration item that has sold out. If you didn’t get that ribbon, you can use any Whisper White Ribbon, or even leave the ribbon off. 
  • adhered the sentiment onto the Balmy Blue CS layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • applied pearls to the Balmy Blue CS layer in the corners of some of the tufts
  • punched Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Be Mine Happy Anniversary Card

If you got the January “Be Mine” Paper Pumpkin kit, you know you got a whole lot of extra die cut pieces. I used some of them for my swap cards for the February Candy Hearts team meeting. The theme for the swap was wedding or anniversary, and I thought the pair of chameleons would be perfect for a fun and whimsical anniversary card. The Dot to Dot embossing folder added to the whimsy by creating a background full of “bubbles.” I chose the colors based on the kit.

Tufted Heart Wedding Card by Joanne Brown

Today I’m happy to get to share a wedding card made by Joanne Brown, one of my Candy Hearts team members. She made it for the February team meeting card swap, which had a wedding/anniversary theme. She used both the Tufted and the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folders, along with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, and Floral Phrases stamp set to create an elegant card with lots of texture.

The Lovely Lipstick Foil paper she used for the heart is from a Sale-a-bration item that has sold out, but you can make this card with Lovely Lipstick card stock, or with another color foil paper, for the same look.

Blended Seasons Wedding Card

The Blended Seasons bundle (Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies) really does work all year, and for multiple occasions. I used it to make today’s card, meant for a wedding, but it could also be used to wish someone well when they’re moving away, retiring, or beginning any new adventure. The background paper is from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, which is meant for Christmas, but can obviously be used for other things. 

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details on the Blended Seasons bundle, and the second assortment of Watercolor Pencils, available only until August 31, or while supplies last.

Here’s what I made:
