Hey there! My September Paper Pumpkin kit arrived! I used a few of the stamps to create a batch of cute "hello" cards:
I kept my design simple, using Kraft 12"x12" card stock for the card base, and stamping on Very Vanilla with Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, and Old Olive ink.
I've been itching to use the Seasonal Decorative Masks from the Holiday catalog, so I sponged Old Olive ink with a Sponge Dauber through the "petals" mask.
After sponging through the mask, I flipped it over and "stamped" the inside Very Vanilla layer with the left-over ink before adding Cottage Greetings sentiments.
The Delightful Dijon-sponged version. I also sponged the envelope flap.
I stamped two sunflowers, cutting with Paper Snips. After layering with a dimensional in between, I stamped a third flower with Old Olive to add for leaves. "A Happy Hello To You" was stamped with Early Espresso.
The sunflower works as a single layer too. I wound Gold Metallic Thread around my fingers a couple of times, pinched in the middle before adhering under the dimensional attaching the flower.
Cottage Greetings offers several perky sentiments!
I altered my original design by stamping the sentiment first, then sponging through the mask to leave the sentiment area free of color.
