Did you make a Wild West Pick guess last week?  If so, you’ll get the tutorial for this Floral Frames project.  Rita D. your guess was the closest.  Thank you for making a guess.

I chose Whisper White tone on tone after seeing a beautiful card created with the new Tree Builder Punch.   Sahara Sand gives it a little bit of dimension along with dry embossing and dimensionals.

More Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin

More Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin at WildWestPaperArts.comHere it is, more Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015!  The more I work with this kit the more potential I see with it.  By working a little out of the box you can even create bags and tags. Bags?  How in the world?

You’ll start with material to make the suggested card and envelope below.Happy Thoughts of Paper Pumpkin at WildWestPaperArts.comThe following elements were used to create the bag:

    • Two Green Envelope Liners
    • Two Envelopes (unassembled)
    • One Small White Banner piece
    • One Flower without Center
    • Two Leaves
    • One White Circle included in kit
    • Twine & ButtonScrap
    • Thick Whisper White Cardstock #140272 (2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″)

Creating the Bag:

  1. Adhere the envelope liners to the OUTSIDE of the envelopes
  2. Trim the flap off of one envelope (save for another project)
  3. Assemble the the bag by attaching the sides and bottom of two envelopes together
  4. Glue the scrap piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock to the bottom to seal off the gaps
  5. Stamp a Happy Thoughts for You near the bottom of the banner piece
  6. Adhere to the front of the bag, lining the top edge with the top opening edge of the bag
  7. Fold flap over
  8. Assemble flower and attach to the flap.

Isn’t that cute?

Welcome to PPA259 Color Challenge with Pals.  Don’t touch your dial (or your calendar), you’re not seeing things. Yes, we have a patriotic color scheme after the 4th of July holiday.  I declare July National Patriot Month!

To be completely honest, I had a tough time with this color scheme because I wanted to stay away from a patriotic theme.  Then realization hit…. it’s a great color scheme any old time!

Look really close and you’ll see wood grain embossing on both Pacific Point AND Silver foil layers.  Center stars are cut with the Stars Framelits collection, cardstock and Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack (#138442). 

Wonder what this card will be used for?

PPA259 Color Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com

How about a job well done?

When creating this I happened to pull a piece of Pacific Point card stock that had a hole in it.  I just hate to waste beautiful paper so….

That’s it for my PPA259 Color Challenge project.  Now, it’s your turn.  Create your project, post it on your blog or a community website then link ‘er up!

Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015

Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin at WildWestPaperArts.comHappy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 is the topic for today.  At least part of the kit.  The June’s kit has us creating two beautiful cards that couldn’t be more different.  We’re focusing on the kit supplies on the “earthy, warm” end of the spectrum for this post. Before you know it July’s kit will be here so let’s get to work. Instructions for the suggested card (seen below) are included in the kit but with a little stretching, we can create some cute alternates. Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.comThe next three cards take advantage of extra paper gained by trimming the envelope liners at 2″ from the point shown in the picture below. Envelope liners really finish off a card but I rarely line the entire envelope.  After all, it’s the flap that counts, right?Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.comReap extra benefits from Paper Pumpkin Kits with a little thinking “out-of-the-box”.  I always have leftovers.  The following examples show a few ways to use those leftovers. The first one (below) is very similar to the suggested sample.  Background stamping is replaced with some of the envelope liner trimmings. Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.comNumber two is clean, simple (CAS) yet still earthy.Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.comLastly, number three, another clean and simple card.  This one is my favorite alternate so far.  Use the pop-out center from the die-cut flower to create a contrasting center on the green blossom. Happy Thoughts with Paper Pumpkin June 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.com By adding scrap supplies on hand to these sweet monthly kits, the possibilities are endless. Watch for more Wild West examples here or on the Paper Pumpkin Patch Facebook Page using more supplies from June 2015 kit later this week.
