Paper Pumpkin Alternative Design

20190421_103447

I made up the lovely April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, and I'm still designing with the gorgeous Sentimental Rose Stamp Set in this kit!! The BEST value of this subscription kit is the great stamp sets you receive and KEEP USING!

20190421_103523

This is a Panel Fold card for a very special occasion!

20190421_103612

Panel Card: cut the card base 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" and score at 2" and 3-1/8" from each side. SIMPLE and stands well for display! This fold fits a Stampin' Up! medium envelope which I covered with Silver Foil Paper embossed with Petal Pair Embossing Folder #145656.

The roses were inked with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, So Saffron and Highland Heather. The background on the side panels is Timeless Textures Stamp Set #140517 stamped in Gray Granite ink.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Design

I was very impressed with the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Sentimental Rose! One of the BEST bonuses about the monthly kit subscription, is the great images and sentiments you can add to your stash after you make the kit. This month's kit has TEN stamps! All stamps used here are from the kit.

20190421_103726

I stamped the rose image on Whisper White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ink. Then I very light sponged on Balmy Blue Ink.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set

20190410_091532 (2)

Beautiful Day Stamp Set #145915 is my favorite stamp set for using Stampin' BLENDS alcohol marker. I love it's simple boldness. 

20190410_091620 (2)

I do not claim to be an artist, but using BLENDS gives me satisfaction! I color each flower petal individually. My method is color the entire petal with the light shade. Second, add the shading with the darker marker. Last, go over the edge where the light and dark meet with the light shade to soften. I used the Highland Heather Combo Pack of Blends Markers #147276.

20190410_091607 (2)

This is a nice "all-purpose" card to have on hand for many occasions! TRY IT!
