    Journal – Old Paper Pumpkin – part 1

    I wanted to work on the new Journal (pg 73) that is part of the Pressed Petal Suite (152193) wouldn’t you know… so busy making sure I did not forget anything on my orders for customers, that I forgot to order the Journal (149588). So making the best of it… I decided that maybe this OLD Paper Pumpkin could work. I have been wanting to put something together with parts of this kit anyway… Knowing that the plan was to use the Pressed Petal DSP (149500), a few colors needed to be changed. Using Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. The patterns did not go either, but…

    It is getting close to Fathers’s Day, do you need the perfect card?? How about using parts of your Paper Pumpkin? Today, only the stamps are from the May kit. At first, I was thinking a floating card, but due to unhappy stamping this was changed into just a quick card. Tomorrow is a new day for the floating card. Let’s turn lemons into lemonade. Still taking que from the box, pulled out a Pretty Peacock card base and ink. Add a little more sentiment from the Well Said (148796) stamp set. Pick a bird to highlight, using a mostly dry aqua painter. You need a light hand so you…

I added a stamped imagine on the sentiment and tweaked the twine. I would love to get this card, how about you? Now, for the alternative card…. I hear you cringing, however, a fussy cut was necessary. Can you hear the feathers asking to be cut out??…
