Check out my latest card using the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sending Good Thoughts. This is such a pretty AND uplifting kit! I LOVE to make alternative (or is it alternate?) designs. Make sure you JOIN PAPER PUMPKIN so you don't miss out on the next kit! (keep reading to the end for some close-ups and a helpful hint!)
For this card, I used only the bird from the kit, along with the stamp set. Everything else is available - and some of it is FREE through August 31st, 2022, or while supplies last. Keep reading! Want to see what supplies were used? Check it out HERE.
The card base and bottle use Balmy Blue cardstock, the water/waves are Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay cardstocks, embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (Timber is one of those FREE Sale-A-Bration items through August 31st, 2022). Add a little color using a Blending Brush and Pacific Point ink. Don't forget to roll up a small amount of the Vellum Layering Designs for this Message in a Bottle - PERFECT fit!
The foils are the Brushed Metallic Cardstock (one of those FREE Sale-A-Bration items through August 31st, 2022) and Silver Foil Specialty Pack (one of those FREE Sale-A-Bration items through August 31st, 2022). Both were embossed using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (one of those FREE Sale-A-Bration items through August 31st, 2022).
I added in the Bottled Happiness BUNDLE, Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes, and Effervescent Elements. Finish it off with some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and Rhinestones. WOW! This card is just so pretty in real life!
Here are a few close-ups AND even a helpful tip, trick, or technique to make your life better! Make sure you order that wonderful Embossing Additions Tool Kit so YOU can use the Crafting Tweezer to help hold and tie your bows!
