Hello stamping friends! My name is Lori Mueller and I welcome you to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop group! I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew. Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!
This month's blog hop floats along with Spooky Treats (September 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit. Get ready to make this the most fang-tastic Halloween ever! It has all the ghostly accessories necessary to Trick—or—Treat. Teehehe
I went with Basic Black as my cardbase which measures 5-1/2" x 5-3/4" and then scored at 1-1/2" along the 5-1/2" side. You'll need another strip that measures 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" for the bottom section to create the Open Panel.
The designer paper is actually one of the sleeves that was cut down and matted with Pumpkin Pie before adhering to the cardbase and extra Basic Black strip. The inside panel is Fresh Freesia...thought it was less dramatic than using Basic White.
Die cut a piece of Orchid Oasis using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes dies. Use that as a matte layer to the 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" Basic Black square. Position the extra matted Basic Black strip on the bottom section of the card base. The ghost image is absolutely adorable when heat embossed with White powder onto Vellum cardstock. After hand cutting them out, I added ink to the back using a Water Painter. I used the color palette used in the kit: Crushed Curry, Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie and Fresh Freesia. They were added to the stitched square with Mini Dimensionals that were cut in half and strategically added to the eyes and mouth of the ghost. This was to ensure the dimensionals were not seen through the Vellum.
Add adhesive to the top and bottom 1/4" section of the stitched square and add it to the front top flap and the bottom strip. This builds a 'bridge' between the two sections and creates the Open Panel. The bats image was inked with Memento Black onto the inside panel. Super cute, right?!! At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next A Paper Pumpkin Thing designers blog. You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.
