Okay, I know I'm really late with this one. I will be the first to admit I got behind with blog posts (after a week or so I know I'm trying to get my schedule all worked out ;)) but I just loved June's Paper Pumpkin kit and I really wanted to share my redo project!
I did also put together one of the bags because they were just too darn cute so I'll include my pictures of that first!
First thing I did was stamp the watermelon rind and the "inside" of the watermelon that said sweet. I wanted to use the sentiment that said a little something sweet but I didn't want it to say sweet sweet so, I took a piece of washi tape and covered up the word sweet on the long sentiment.
Then, I inked up the stamp, washi tape and all
After its all nice and inked up, make sure you remove the washi tape before stamping! This allows you to cover up and part of a stamp you don't want to use really fast and easy!
And then all I did was tie a little bow on the tag and attach it to the bag. Can we just stop and talk about how adorable the tissue paper from this kit is? I really love it I need to find this in a store somewhere!
Now for my redo project, this one was really simple but I think it turned out okay. I love the background but I'm not super crazy about how I did the sentiment. But I like to keep it real so here's what I came up with!
The first thing I did was take a piece of Whisper White and covered the back with Snail Adhesive. One thing to note, if you get these areas like I did where you have a bunch of adhesive and it makes a little bumpy bit, you want to make sure you get rid of it as much as possible. I just took my paper piercing tool and used it to pull off the adhesive. If you don't do this, you'll see the raised areas once the project is completed.
Next, I took a piece of that adorable tissue paper and just stuck it down and then trimmed around the whisper white. You don't have to do this but if you just stick down the tissue paper directly to the card base, it doesn't show up as bright.
And here is where I wish I had done something a little different. But anyways, I took some Emerald Envy ink and a blending sponge and inked up one of the little circles. I went back and fourth on which color to use and ended up going with the green. It looks a little messy to me so I wish I would have come up with something a little different but it's okay and super cute still!
After that, I just put everything together, tied a little bow and that's it!
I hope you enjoy and are having so much fun with your Paper Pumpkin!
