June 2017 One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Alternatives


Another cheery kit!  What awesome colors!  Makes it feel like it is lake time!  The kit was originally designed to create 6 note cards and 4 gift bags.  I didn’t really need gift bags, so I created alternative cards with the gift bag items instead! And I don’t do note size cards neither.

These are the extras I used for the alternatives.  All other items were supplied in the June 2017 One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin kit.
Card 1 to 3 of 9 alternatives.
I covered white cardstock with some of the tissue paper supplied in the kit.
Extras: gingham ribbon, Emerald Envy baker's twine, Sweet Cupcake stamp set (2017/18).
 
Card 1 of 9 alternatives.
Card 2 to 3 of 9 alternatives.
Card 3 to 3 of 9 alternatives.

Card 4 to 6 of 9 alternatives.
Added a bit of watercolor to the first card and a bit of Wink of Stella to the middle watermelons.
Extras: Emerald Envy baker's twine, Wink of Stella, Crushed Curry ink.
 
Card 4 to 6 of 9 alternatives.

Card 5 to 6 of 9 alternatives.
Card 6 to 6 of 9 alternatives.

Card 7 to 9 of 9 alternatives.
For the first card, I cut a 5" circle from Lemon Lime cardstock.  I used my aqua painter to add some streaks of Emerald Envy ink to look like watermelon rind.  My next circle was white cut at about 4-3/8".  I cut another white circle about 4-1/8".  I covered this circle with glue stick then applied the tissue paper.  I adhered the 3 circles together then cut into watermelon slices.
Extras: Scallop edge border punch, Sweet Cupcake stamp set, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Emerald Envy baker's twine, Happy Birthday thinlits, Sprinkles of Life stamp set (2017/18).
 
Card 7 to 9 of 9 alternatives.
Card 8 to 9 of 9 alternatives.
Card 9 to 9 of 9 alternatives.
Ended up with 25 cards from this kit!
Contains supplies for 6 cards and 4 bags, includes:
6 printed card bases, 4 printed bags, 6 white envelopes, 2 sheets watercolor die-cut pieces, 2 sheets white die-cut pieces, 1 sheet laser-cut leaf stickers, 4 sheets printed cotton paper, 4 yds pink baker’s twine, 4 green mini clothespins, 100 dimensionals, 100 adhesive dots, One in a Melon stamp set, Melon Mambo and Emerald Envy ink spots.

DIY Embossing Paste - One Hour Card Class 055 - OHCC055


Stamps: Flourishing Phrases.

Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Vellum, Watercolor paper, Wild Wasabi.

Ink: Perfect Plum re-inker, Wild Wasabi.

Tools: bone folder, purchased envelope, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, glue dots, rhinestones, Pattern Party Decorative Mask, baby powder, white paint and glue to make Embossing Paste, palette knife, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Butterflies Thinlits dies, Silicone Craft Sheet, Flourish Thinlits dies.

Die cut the images.  Adhere the butterflies.


There are a lot of recipes online for Embossing Paste.  This is the one I tried and have had great results with it.  It also lasts a long time in a sealed container.
1/4 cup talc or baby powder, 1 tablespoon white acrylic paint, 1 tablespoon Aleen’s original Tacky Glue.  Add a little water as needed to make a spreadable paste.


Pick up a bit of Embossing Paste with the bottom side of your palette knife and drop it on your Silicone Craft Sheet.  Add about 4 drops of Perfect Plum re-inker and stir.


Spread it like butter over the decorative mask.  Remove the mask immediately and set in soapy water to clean up later. 


Set panel aside about 15 minutes to dry.


Stamp a phrase for the inside of the card. 


Decorate a purchased envelope with a stamped image.
