May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Sprinkled with Love Alternative

Yes, I am a year behind on some of my Paper Pumpkins!  Shame! Shame!  Round cards just aren’t my style, I much prefer regular shaped cards.  The donuts are fairly big too, so this months Sprinkled with Love Paper Pumpkin kit was a real struggle for alternatives for me.  Off to Pinterest I went.  My oh my!  What smart people there are out there!  Before I knew it, I had 21 cards, 3 of each design done! I cut the donuts in half and away I went!  Since the square envelopes weren’t going to work for my cards, I cut and used some of them in my cards too.

Contains supplies for 9 round cards and envelope bags: 6 donut card bases, 3 circle card bases, 9 printed kraft envelopes, 12 printed frosting sheets, 6 die-cut frosting stickers, 2 sheets heart and circle stickers, 2 sheets die-cut banners. 1 sheet die-cut flowers, 50 adhesive-backed sequins, 50 adhesive-backed pearls, 11 yds gold/vanilla twine, 25 dimensionals, 200 adhesive dots, Sprinkled with Love stamp set, Soft Suede ink spot.
Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors: Calypso Coral, Powder Pink (new 2017-2019 In Color), So Saffron, Very Vanilla. 

Card 1 of 7

The only thing I used extra on this card was Calypso Coral cardstock and Calypso Coral ink.  I stamped the background with the sprinkles stamp included in the kit using Calypso Coral ink.

Card 2 of 7

Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Gold foil, Soft Sky.

Tools: gold sequins, 3/8” metallic glitter tape, gold embossing powder.

Dies: Stitched Shapes framelits – I stamped the background of this with the sprinkles, Butterflies Thinlits.

Card 3 of 7

I had already thrown the negative sheet to the frosting in the garbage when I stumbled across this card on Pinterest.  Unfortunately, there was no blog address on it.  It is watermarked with a name, but I can’t really make it out – possibly Cheryll Stalate.  Anyways, great use of this piece. 

To create the bee hive, I swiped my ink pad across the sticker panel until I got the color I wanted, then I repeated on a scrap of white cardstock; peeled the sticker off and mounted it to my colored white scrap.  I then cut around them.  I cut 6 bees per card.  I adhered 3 of them to the card then added dimensionals to the remaining 3.

Cardstock: White, So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Gold foil.

Ink: So Saffron, Soft Suede.

Tools: Honeycomb embossing folder.

Card 6 of 7

I only used Soft Suede and So Saffron to create the cupcake.  For the first image, I stamped the ink off twice; the second image was stamped off once and the third image was full strength.  I did add some pink sprinkles to the frosting, but it doesn’t really show.  Really had to hold my tongue just right to fit the scallop circle!
