Hey everyone! Happy August 1st!! Wow, is this summer flying by or what?!? I wanted to share my last alternate card for the July Paper Pumpkin kit. I can’t believe I used up the entire kit!! I usually have quite a few pieces leftover, but not this time! Here are the measurements for today’s project:

  • Card base in Seaside Spray cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White cardstock 2 cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, one for the inside
  • Woven Threads DSP cut at 3″ x 4″

After playing with the Woven Threads DSP in the kit, I wanted to play with more of it (that never happens, right? lol) So I pulled this piece out and went with the Seaside Spray cardstock. I layered the DSP to the Whisper White, then glued it to the card base. Next I cut the sentiment layer with the Stitched Rectangle Die and then stamped the sentiment with the Seaside Spray ink. I then added the last tiny paper clip from the kit to the rectangle. I tied a bow with the Linen Thread from the kit then added it to the paper clip with a Mini Glue Dot. Then I added it all to the card front with dimensionals. Of course I wanted to use the last few of the sequins from the kit so I added them. They went perfectly!

For the inside I stamped the inside layer sentiment in Seaside Spray ink and the medallion in Rococo Rose ink to coordinate with the front. What do you think?

I hope I inspired you to use up your kit  like I did with mine. The kit may be used up, but that’s okay, I have that stamp set to use with the 3 suites that this kit coordinated with, Woven Threads, Garden Lane, and Come Sail Away. Now I can’t wait for the August kit! Did you know that it’s going to be fall themed? Yep! The kit itself will be cute little gift bags with fall embellishments, but the really cool part is that starting today you can purchase an add on kit that completes 24 cards! We’ve never had add on kits before so I’m pretty excited to get mine. Now if you aren’t a subscriber, you can subscribe here.
