Paper Pumpkin April 2019, Sentimental Rose

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which are alternative creations from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Sentimental Rose! From this kit you can make 9 note sized cards, but I thought I would share with you some full-size alternatives using just a few extra supplies. What is so nice about this month’s kit is that you can a variety of cards with the sentiments! Today’s cards will be using the Mother’s Day sentiment.

For the card on the right, I cut the note sized card base in half (or on the score line), the printed side will be used for the base layer and the blank side will be used for the inside of the card. You will also need this label, stamping the sentiment in Gray Granite ink, one of the corrugated labels, this layering base layer, stamping the rose in Flirty Flamingo ink:

To assemble the card front, adhere the stamped layer to the base layer, use enough baker’s twine to wrap around twice and tie into a knot, adhere the sentiment piece to the corrugated label, adhering with dimensionals. I decided to use one of the Mint Macaron enamel dots for the center of the rose:

This completed piece is adhered to a Gray Granite cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, the sentiment and rose are stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink and the leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron ink:

For the card on the left, I cut the note sized card base in half at the score line, the printed side will be used for the base layer and the blank side will be used for the inside of the card. You will also need one of the corrugated element pieces, one of the flower bases, and baker’s twine, folding a piece in half and tying into a bow, sniping the end pieces:

Adhere the flower base to the corrugated element piece (if you turn it the right way, it is layered so that the corrugated element piece is layered perfectly underneath):

Adhere this piece to the base layer, stamp the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink, and then adhere the baker’s twine with a glue dot. :

This completed piece is adhered to a Calypso Coral card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I decided to add some rhinestones, which I colored with Dark Calypso Coral and Dark Flirty Flamingo:

The inside sentiment and rose are stamped in Calypso Coral ink and the leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron ink:

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
