Paper Pumpkin June 2019-A Little Smile Alternative p3

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are my final two alternatives for the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin, A Little Smile! This kit has been so much fun creating alternative card idea’s and with all the supplies I have left over, I could definitely keep making more! I really like how this kit can coordinate with the Under the Sea dies and even the Sea of Textures stamp set, so you know that I just had to make one of my alternatives an underwater scenery!!

For card #1 on the right, this is very quick and easy to make with no stamping, except for the sentiment!

You will first start with two of the palm trees, this card front design from the kit (trimming off the back piece), a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock to cut out the Adirondack chair die with, and a 4” x 5 ¼” of Old Olive vellum cardstock from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder (this is the old version, the new 3D folder is not available yet):

I used glue dots to adhere the palm trees to the card front piece and then cut two mini dimensionals in half to adhere the Adirondack chair:

This piece is then adhered to the embossed vellum cardstock with dimensionals and then adhered to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. Tip-if you happen to have some of those Sizzix adhesive sheets still, you can cut four squares to use in the corners to adhere the vellum to the cardstock:

For the inside, I left the sentiment blank, but adhered one sand dollar and one starfish in the bottom corners:

For card #2 on the left, cut a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and then use the school of fish die from Under the Sea, flipping the cardstock over the cut out the fish going in the opposite direction. I then embossed with the Seaside TIEF, which is now retired:

Addtionally for the card front, you will need to cut out the net die with Sahara Sand cardstock, use Pretty Peacock cardstock to cut out two seagrasses, and then the coral, starfish, and sand dollar elements from the kit:

I used my fine tip glue pen to adhere part of the next to the base layer and trimmed off the excess with paper snips:

Still using the fine tip glue pen, adhere the coral, starfish, sand dollar, and seagrasses along the bottom, adhere the other starfish and sand dollar to make it appear like they are floating, and this completed piece is adhered to a Night of Navy cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

 The inside is a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and the sand dollar and starfish are stamped in Sahara Sand ink, stamping off first:

More fun cards make with this super cute kit!! I seriously could go on, but it’s time to get back to those new catalog products!! I might just keep this kit handy and if another idea pops in, I’ll post those on my Facebook page!

Paper Pumpkin June 2019-A Little Smile Alternative p2

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are two more alternatives for the A Little Smile Paper Pumpkin kit! Both of these fun alternatives have elements from the kit and one even creates a beach scene using the Lilypad Lake stamp set, with a little masking! 

For the card on the right, I really wanted to make a beach themed wreath. This was fairly easy, just need a little patience and your Fine Tip Glue Pen!

You will need two of these card front designs from the kit, trimming off the back piece, eight of the palm leaves, the laser-cut vellum circle, one of the sand dollars, enough twine to tie into a bow, and three of the starfish, placing the smallest Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle of each:

I used some scotch tape to connect the two card fronts together to make the base layer. I then adhered a piece of the twine around the middle, disguising the line:

Since this may get a little messy, use your silicone craft sheet while adhering the palm leaves around the laser-cut vellum circle. I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to place glue about 2/3 of the way down the back, layering around the vellum circle. Tip-You may have to place a little spot underneath if the palm leaf lifts up from the vellum circle:

After this is completed, I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the bow to the sand dollar and then adhere the starfish and sand dollar to the palm leaves. Tip-Place a clear block on top for a couple of minutes to allow the glue to adhere and dry:

The wreath is adhered to the base layer with mini dimensionals (hidden behind the starfish and sand dollar). The card base is Coastal Cabana cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and I used the texture stamp with Coastal Cabana ink to make a border along the top and bottom. The base layer is then adhered with dimensionals:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment from Special Celebrations is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink, along with the starfish that are stamped off before stamping the cardstock:

The card on the left is a beach scene incorporating Lilypad Lake stamp set, a little sponging and some masking!

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

I stamped the texture stamp and sponged in with a sponge dauber using Sahara Sand ink:

I stamped the sailboats in Memento ink, , created a mask with the coordinating framelit, and then stamped the wave stamp in Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, and Coastal Cabana inks:

I used a blender pen to color in the sails of the sailboats, stamped the sun in Daffodil Delight ink, and used a sponge dauber to fill it in:

To create the clouds, I first used the coordinating sun die to create a mask and then I used the Pretty Label Punch to create a cloud mask, both out of a post it note:

I used a sponge dauber with Balmy Blue ink along the top of the mask to create the clouds and sky:

This is then adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I then adhered two of the palm trees from the kit and used three of the gold metallic pearls to create “coconuts” for each palm tree:

The inside is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the texture stamp is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, filling in with a sponge dauber, and then adhere one more palm tree:

What do you think of these two alternatives?? Is this such a fun kit? You can really keep it very simple or take it way up to create some awesome alternative cards!!

Paper Pumpkin June 2019-A Little Smile Alternative

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is my kick off for alternative’s to Paper Pumpkin’s June 2019 kit, A Little Smile! June is usually a pretty busy month for me with the new catalog and family vacation, so I usually take a break from PP….but, I was too distracted to suspend this month’s kit! This kit is so stinking adorable that I’m not disappointed I forgot! This week will be all about full size alternatives since the kit makes note size cards. Each card inspiration will incorporate a little more to “step it up”, but today we are going to keep it basic and only add cardstock and ink!

For card #1, you will need the products from the kit on the right (cut the back of the note card piece off) and then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5” and stamp the sand dollar and star in Coastal Cabana ink (stamp off first, then stamp 2ndand 3rdgeneration ink) and the coral is stamped in Crumb Cake ink (stamp off first):

Use the twine from the kit to wrap around the Whisper White cardstock layer, adhere the coral die cut vellum behind the palm tree piece, adhere this to the note card front piece, and then adhere the star:

This piece is then adhered on top of the Whisper White cardstock base layer and then adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The inside is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment, sand dollar, and star are stamped in Coastal Cabana ink (only the sentiment is not stamped off first) and the texture stamp from the kit is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off first:

For card #2, you will need products from the kit on the right (the back of the note card is trimmed off), the sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, and a 3 ¾” x 5” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, stamping the sand dollar 1st and 2nd generation: 

Adhere the sentiment to the laser-cut vellum circle, use adhesive behind the label to adhere the vellum circle to the note card layer, adhere the prawns behind the sand dollar and then adhere this to the note card layer:

Adhere the note card layer to the Crumb Cake cardstock base layer, tie a piece of twine into a bow around the bottom, and then adhere this to a Coastal Cabana cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and the sentiment and sand dollars are stamped in Coastal Cabana ink:

Aren’t these just adorable?? This kit is just the thing to get you in the mood for summer! I just love the idea behind this kit, Random Acts of Kindness. You make these little note cards, keep them in the storage envelope to take the cards with you, and hand them out to brighten someone’s day! These would also work perfectly to create a scrapbook page with 2” x 3” pictures!
