Here are the suggested cards that came with this month's Paper Pumpkin kit and below is how they go together.
The June kit was designed to coordinate with the Broadway Bound Suite that appears on page 69 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Do you have your catalog yet? If you'd like one contact me so I can drop one in the mail to you.
The Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP) has 12 patterns; one side is shimmery and features Gold Foil, Basic Black and Gray Granite and the other side features Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist, Gray Granite and Basic Black. Both sides are set against a Whisper White background. A great feature of this cardstock is it's weight. It's light enough for cards but also heavy enough for your favorite 3-D item.
Here's what I came up with for alternative projects.
For my first alternate project I decided to create a bag in a box. This is all made from materials in the kit. The only thing I added was a Velcro closure. I used one of the Lemon Lime Twist card bases and cut it down to 7-1/2" x 3". The remaining piece was cut to 2" x 3-1/2" and scored 1/2" on all four sides. The corners of the scored piece were snipped to create a box base and the larger piece of the card was wrapped around it and glued at the bottom edge and at the back seam.
I trimmed a slim edge off the gold "Hooray" sheet plus an additional shorter piece to attach to the bottom edge of the bag. From a black and white card I cut a 3/4" x 8-1/2" strip, cut it down to two pieces of 4-1/4" each then scored the length of each piece at 3/8". I folded and glued the two 4-1/4" pieces to use as the bag handles. The center flap of the bag is a 1" x 3" piece of the stripe on which I rounded the edges. The Lovely Lipstick circles were punched from the label piece in the kit using a 1/2" Circle Punch.
The treat bag was also made with just items from the kit. Click HERE to download the template.
For these projects I've incorporated products from the Broadway Bound Suite.
This card simply uses the "You Deserve It" sentiment from the Broadway Birthday stamp set and the Metallic Pearls in gold.
I created this invitation using a piece of the Broadway Bound SDSP and cut the tag longer using the second largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and the Lovely Lipstick piece from the kit. The Broadway Lights Framelits Dies have a die that coordinates with a stamp and the party hat on the SDSP. The sentiment is from the February 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Again I've added some of the Metallic Pearls in gold.
I've used two pieces of the Broadway Bound SDSP for this card. The "50" is cut out from one of the SDSP pieces. I stamped the cake from the kit, colored it with the Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and added a little Clear Wink of Stella to it for some shimmer. I had run out of the gold sequins in the kit so I used a 1/4" punch and part of the "Hooray" gold paper to make the "simulated" sequins.
This final card uses the "Wish" die from the Broadway Lights Framelits Dies and the sentiment is from the Broadway Birthday stamp set.
