Today I’m back with my second blog post sharing projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kit Joy to the World. If you haven’t picked one of these up yet then I suggest you do today as for one day only the Joy to th World kit has 10% off in the Online Extravaganza, along with most items in the Annual Catalogue.
I’ve loved playing with this kit and today I’m sharing cards which feature the floral images in the kit. You can see the original design for the kit in the picture above.
For this first alternative design I used a Just Jade card ase and cut one of the cards from the kit to create a background layer measuring 10cm x 14.4cm. I then used a scrap of paper from the kit envelopes measuring 14.4cmx 1cm and laid this across the centre. I stamped my sentiment on a Whisper White Stitched Oval and then as a final touch added the floral diecut with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This card again uses the envelope paper as a background layer. I used a Stitched Rectangle for the sentiment on this card and added the floral diecut to the top left corner. As a finishing touch I added a row of Gilded Gems along the Cherry Cobbler envelope paper.
This Cherry Cobbler card uses the back side of one of the kit card bases as abackground layer, across which I’ve added a strip of Just Jade Twill Ribbon. I then stamped “To You & Yours” on the embossed cardstock from the kit, I wasn’t sure how well this would show up but as the embossing is quite flat it works. To finish the card I added a gold Peace diecut and one of the floral diecuts.
For my final card today I did some stamping with the little floral stamp. I cut three Stitched Rectangles and lined them, then stamped across all three. I then used Cherry Cobbler and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers and then used Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle to the berries. The card was finished off with a gold banner and sentiment stamped on the die cut from the kit.
Hope you’ve found some inspiration for using the Joy to The World kit, its the perfect kit whether your a beginner crafter or a more experienced one.
