Hello again! It’s time to play with more of the Delicate Wings Paper Pumpkin Kit! If you stopped by earlier this morning, you saw my CASE-ing Tuesday project using the Forever Love DSP and the stamps from this Paper Pumpkin Kit. If you didn’t see the post, just head over here to see it. Hope you can take time to play along with us! Were you able to watch my Facebook Live this afternoon while creating these projects? If not, you can catch the replay over on my YouTube Channel. While you are there, please be sure to give my video a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel.

I know I say this every month, but I think this is one of my favorites yet! Those butterflies are gorgeous!!! Let’s look at my scrapbook layout first.

Here are the measurements:

  • Base in Lost Lagoon cardstock – 12″ x 12″
  • Forever Love Specialty DSP – 2″ x 12″
  • Basic Beige cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 11″
  • Kit card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Pretty Peacock cardstock photo mat – 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″

This has to be one of my favorite photos of me and my grandson. He was almost 5 years old in this photo. I attached all of the layers with Stampin’ Seal+, including my photo and photo mat. The title is the card layer from the kit that has the large 3D butterfly on it. I trimmed off the sentiment, added it to a Pretty Peacock layer and attached with Mini Glue Dots. The large butterfly on the lower left corner is the butterfly from that card layer. After I trimmed it from the sentiment, I added quite a bit of Wink of Stella, because butterflies just have to be sparkly, right?  I then traced the outline of the butterfly on a scrap of Pretty Peacock cardstock, fussy cut it and attached it to the butterfly with liquid glue. I used the butterfly dies from the add on Thanks & Beyond Dies in Pretty Peacock. The other two die cut butterflies are from the kit and all have Wink of Stella added to them too. The little butterfly is attached to the journaling tag, which is die cut with the label from the same die set. I used the line image from the Love This Moment Stamp Set, inked it in Pretty Peacock and stamped off before stamping my tag. I wrote the journaling with the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I sprinkled on Festive Pearls for my bling.

I love tucking my journaling in behind a layer or a photo! Now let’s look at our first fun-fold card.

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Basic Beige cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Forever Love Specialty DSP – 2″ x 5 1/4″ and 4″ x 6″
  • Basic Beige cardstock – 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ for the inside

I love this fun-fold as it’s perfect for those scraps you don’t want to throw away! The 4″ x 6″ layer is folded in half to create a mini card on the base. I used Pretty Peacock ink for all of my stamping and the butterfly is one of the images from the set and die cut with the outline die. The ribbon is the Pretty Peacock & Gold Ribbon with is carrying over to the new catalog. The inside stamp is one long sentiment, so I masked it to stamp it in parts to fit the inside layer. Here’s a look at the inside:

Isn’t that fun card? Now let’s look at our second fun-fold card, which is a z-fold card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Pretty Peacock cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″
  • Card base from fit – 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside – trim 1/4″ of diagonal layer too

I try to keep my alternates fairly simple, and this one is no different. I decided to add the basic design to the front of a z-fold card base. The butterflies have more of the festive pearls added for bling, as well as Wink of Stella.

The second half of the kit card base is used for the inside of the card and I die cut another label for the stamped image so as not to cover all of that gorgeous foiling on the card.

Here’s a look at the card completely opened.

Now let’s look at our third and final project, a treat holder. You will probably want to watch the replay on the video for this one. I saw this posted by fellow demonstrator Cathryn at In the Pink Designs by Cathryn.

Here are the measurements:

  • Base in Pretty Peacock cardstock – 4″ x 8″, scored on the long side at 2 1/2″ and 3 1/4″, scored on short side at 3/4″ and 3 1/4″
  • Forever Love Specialty DSP – 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″, 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and 2 @ 1/2″ x 2 1/4″

Once you have scored this, you need to place it back on the score board on the long side, matching up the 2 1/2″ and 3 1/4″ mark, and then score it at 5 3/4″ just to the first score line. Then rotate it around so that you can score it at 2 1/4″. Have I lost you? Then you definitely need to watch the replay here. You’ll see that I scored on the long side at 1/2″ by mistake, but it all worked out. Once the scoring is done, you want to fold on all of the score lines, EXCEPT the 5 3/4″ and 2 1/4″. Next you cut the scorelines to create the box bottom. The 5 3/4″ and 2 1/4″ score lines get trimmed off to create the top of the treat holder. Your treat holder body will look like this:

Now that the hardwork is done, it’s time to assemble. I added my DSP before I created the box to make it easier to attach all of the layers, but it might be easier for some to create the box first and then add the DSP. The 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ goes on the back side, the 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ goes on the inside, the 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ goes on the short side of the front and of course, the sides on the sides. After I attached the DSP I stamped my sentiment on another label and attached it with dimensionals. This treat holder holds a package of the Biscoff cookies and a single packaged tea bag. I added a bow in that gorgeous ribbon and of course another butterfly.
