Paper Pumpkin February 2019 Grown with Kindness- Alternative Cards

Hi Ya’ll!

I just wanted to share with you 2 alternative cards you can make using all of the supplies in the February 2019 Grown with Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit. You do not need anything additional to make these! Unless you want to use your own adhesive.

Card #1: (The one on the left)

Items you will use:
1 Black Card Base
1 Piece of vellum, 1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents

Let’s start with the first card and the measurements. I’m just keeping this high level, so if you would like the step by step, please check out my You Tube video HERE.

First you’ll cut the top off of the coffee cup succulent paper right at the top of the skinny cactus in the brown cup.  Cut the white part off so that piece will be 2″ x 1-7/8″. Save the other pieces with the little bit of green on it for the #2 card. Then turn it and cut it down the middle of that same cactus so that piece will be 3″ tall by 1-3/8″. Next cut the succulent paper into 3 sizes, 1-6/8″ x 1-3/8″, 2″ x 1-1/2″ and 2″ x 1-1/4″. Stamp your sentiment on the white piece in Fresh Fig. Then adhere all of the pieces cut as shown with the adhesive dots or a tape runner to the piece of vellum. Then turn it over and only put adhesive on the backs of where the paper is, so none of the glue will show through the vellum. Then you can adhere the vellum to the black card stock. Add 3 of the clear enamel dots and you are done!

For Card #2:

Items you will use:

1 white card base, 1 piece of gray card stock, plus 1 other piece of gray,

1 Sheet of the succulents in the cups, 1 Sheet of the succulents

Stamp your sentiment on the white square that we set aside from Card #1. Adhere it to the gray card stock and cut around it. Just leave about 1/4″ border around it. Then you will cut 4 pieces of the succulent paper all the same size, 2-1/2″ x 1-3/8″. Adhere those evenly to the larger piece of gray card stock. Then tie the white baker’s twine around the back and adhere. I usually make a separate bow and then adhere that to the front with a glue dot. Adhere 3 clear enamel dots and then you are done!

I hope you enjoyed making these cards as much as I enjoyed making the tutorials!

Mojo Monday #436 – You’re So Sweet!

Welcome back to another Mojo Monday challenge! Today I made a card for the Mojo Monday #436 challenge. I’m a little late as the Linky closes in about an hour, but hey, sometimes I do my best work procrastinating. Also I heard recently, if you’re not procrastinating, you’re wasting time. 😉 I really love that.

Here is the cute and fun sketch over at Mojo:

I just love the circles and banner elements! It was a fun and simple card to run with. I made a You’re So Sweet card using the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. You can still get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping!

Can I just say I LOVE the It’s My Party enamel dots??? These cuties come in 3 great colors, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo.  They look so sweet, like little candies on my card!

I love that all of Stampin’ Up’s products coordinate so well! I had no problem matching the card stock to the embellishments to the ink! There are some really cute honeycomb embellishments in the Occasions catalog too. I didn’t use them this time around but they are adorable!

Just a little update on our move…we have 5 days to go. OMG! Today I packed up about 4 boxes of TOYS…and they have maybe 1 more. That’s way too many toys if you ask me. I see a donation run or a garage sale in our future! So we will be traveling about 1300 miles in a motorhome with 2 toddlers. I am NOT ready lol. Well, sort of. I have pinned several “traveling with toddlers” articles and ideas. I’m preparing some things that I hope will make it a smooth trip for everyone. I hope to write about our experience and what worked and didn’t work after we get there! I’ll connect a link to that post after I write it. Our family threw us a little going away party at my sister’s last night and that was really nice. (Except for a few dysfunctional family moments I won’t get into…) A little bittersweet, but we are excited to go!

Thanks for stopping by!
