I was absolutely thrilled to see what was in this Month's Paper Pumpkin. No, it was not the blue box - although I did like that. No, it was not the stamp set - although I did like the stamps; nor was it the two stampin' spots that were included.
What was it?
It was the actual design for the cards!!This month's cards kit featured Lazar cut images of the sleigh ride framelits that were so popular last last year.
Okay, you have to understand what I have been doing the last couple of weeks--making ornaments. One of the dies I was using was the retired Sleigh ride Framelits as wonderful ornaments can be created.
Ah Ah I said! I can use these to make ornaments, and I don't have to do any die cutting. So, that's my alternative project for this month's Paper Pumpkin kit. I'm not sure I will make 8 ornaments, but I just might as I have 5 more craft shows coming up.
Dazzling diamonds was added to the lower level to provide some glitter.
In the sky I also adhered some silver sequins.
The half globe was adhered to a large silver glimmer scallop circle the I die cut using the retired Circle framelits. Some lace trim was adhered around the edge
On the top are 3 ribbons: a 5/8" white satin, a 3/8" Pool Party glitter; and a 3/8" silver glitter. In the center are 3 large bells.
On a 3 3/8" whisper white circle, emboss resist some snowflakes from the "Snow Place" stamp set. Don't forget to use the embossing buddy first.
The snowflakes were stamped with Versa Mark, white embossing powder was added, and the snowflakes heat set with a heating tool.
Night of Navy ink was brayered over these snowflakes, covering the entire surface. The snowflakes really popped when a paper towel was wiped over the surface removing the ink over the snowflakes.
