Are you ready to see lots of ideas with the June 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit?!
Today is the day where several of us Stampin' Up! demonstrators are bringing to you our special Paper Pumpkin blog hop. See what I have to share, then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see even more creative alternate ideas that we came up with using the contents of this month's "One In A Melon" Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop, simply scroll down to click the "next" button or to click on the names of other participants in the hop.
This month's kit is a yummy one - and I mean that almost literally! It screams SUMMER IS HERE! Click here to see the June kit video put out by Stampin' Up! where you can view how to make these intended cards and gift boxes from this kit.
I'll be posting a few more ideas on Saturday, but for today I want to share this fun card and food skewer. hehehe!
Yep! I saw the stamp intended for the inside of the watermelon and immediately thought..."sesame seed bun."
Here are the extra supplies that I used to make them (besides the contents of the June 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit):
- Paper Trimmer
- 2-1/4" Circle Punch
- Pretty Label Punch
- Large Silver Metallic Foil Doily
- Crushed Curry Ink Pad
- Early Espresso Ink Pad
- Paper Snips
- Early Espresso Cardstock
- Real Red Cardstock
- 2016-18 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes
- & skewer
To get the buns, I stamped the inside watermelon image in Crushed Curry ink two times onto one of the cards from the kit (the non-printed half of the card). Then I used the 2-1/4" Circle Punch to cut the rounded edge...
...and a Paper Snips to cut the straight edge. I then used the Pretty Label Punch with some Early Espresso cardstock (the meat), the green from the sticker sheet (the lettuce), and some Real Red cardstock (the tomato or ketchup). I assembled my burger with the glue dots in the kit and set it aside.
Then I cut some Real Red cardstock in half to get a 4-1/4" x 11" card base piece and scored it at 4-3/4" in from one end and 1-1/2" in from the other. I stamped "it's your day!" in Early Espresso ink on a watercolor wash banner piece from the kit and attached it using Glue Dots to the front of the card over a few foliage stickers (also from the kit). Use this photo below showing the score lines to see where to attach these pieces to the Real Red cardstock.
On the flip side I added a watercolor wash small rectangle piece from the kit, another foliage sticker, a strip of 3/4" x 4-1/4" Early Espresso cardstock (so that just 1/8" extends beyond as shown in the photo above), and a few Glue Dots as shown below.
I removed the backings on the Glue Dots and folded it up to make the gift card pocket. Anything written to the card recipient can go on the watercolor wash small rectangle piece.
I attached the burger to the front using Dimensionals from the kit. And ta-da!
The skewer decor was super simple, too. I made sure that the paper/cardstock parts touching the skewer had Glue Dots and the outside areas had two layers of Dimensionals to make up from the thickness of the skewer.
My plan was to photograph this stuck into a pile of burgers, but I didn't have any. And since only two in our family will eat them, it didn't make sense to make a pile of them just for a photo. But hopefully you get the idea. How festive it would be decorating a table full of food at a summer party!
I hope you enjoyed these ideas!
