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!
