Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Card I

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I did as I got to play with Stampin' Up's Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit.  My good friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, and I had so much fun yesterday creating projects and cards even though we are thousands of miles apart.

Don't forget about the Blog Candy I'm offering.  It seems that some people are having trouble leaving me a comment on my January 19th's blog post to win the Blog Candy!  See my blog post here

So, if you would like to drop me an e-mail with your comment and and type Blog Candy in the subject line, I will add your name to be eligible for the Blog Candy.  Here's my e-mail address:  
And, my apologizes!  I will look into why everyone cannot leave a comment this weekend.

Anyways, I will be going in reverse, AGAIN!  I'll be showing my alternate cards before I show the actual kit and how it is put together.  I didn't get in to town to get any Valentine's Day candy so I have nothing to fill the heart pockets with yet.  Shame on me, eh!

But first, I have a couple Whitetail Deer pictures to share first.

Aren't they adorable!  A Whitetail Doe and her little one are scarfing up all the bird seed on the ground underneath our bird feeder.  This is right outside my living room window with the football game blaring on the TV and all.  I can't believe they come up that close.

And, here come some more in the background.  I counted 22 deer last night just around supper time.  Sad to say; but, I don't have that much bird seed to feed them all.

So, here's what I came up with for my first alternate Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit card:

Now, don't laugh!  I had no idea what the heck MEH was!  It's not a word.  Well, Kadie had to explain to me that it's the sound some people make when they blow someone a kiss!  MEH....too funny!  You're laughing; well, if not, you're smiling!!!

So, this card will be for my Hubby.  I did finish off the inside; but, it's all mushy gushy so I won't share that part with you!  =)

My card base is Stampin' Up Watermelon Wonder and I adhered a front panel of a piece from SU's new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper using Mono Multi-Purpose glue.

I took a Mint Macaron heart from SU's Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin kit and popped it up on the front panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I then adhered one of SU's White Tea Lace doilies to the center of the heart using Mono Multi-Purpose glue in the center of the doily only.  I left the edges free.

The stamp set that comes with the kit has a lot of great sentiments, hearts and arrows.  Now, of course, I had to start with the MEH as now I've become a MONSTER with it and blowing kisses to my Hubby and fur babies while making the MEH sound.  I guess I'm getting goofy in my old age.  Anyways, I stamped the MEH in SU's Black Archival Ink on SU's Watermelon Wonder Card Stock.  I stamped the 3 hearts above and below the MEH using SU's Watermelon Wonder Ink and punched it out with SU's 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle Punch.  I adhered it to the center of the doily using Stampin' Dimensionals and left room to be able to tuck a flagged banner behind it on the right side.

Using SU's Watermelon Card Stock and a leftover piece of the DSP, I made two flagged banners.  The DSP banner is 1" and the Watermelon Wonder banner is 3/4".  I flagged both ends using SU's Triple Banner Punch.  I stamped the arrows and the little heart on the Watermelon Wonder banner and adhered it to the DSP banner with Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.  I tucked the banner under the scalloped circle and adhered it with Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.  I then stuck half a Stampin' Dimensional under the right side of the Scalloped Circle.

I tied a small bow with the Two Tone Mint Macaron/Whisper White Baker's Twine that comes in the kit and adhered it with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.   I LOVE this Baker's Twine.

There's some Watermelon Wonder Sequins that come in the kit also.  Love, Love and Love them.  I'll show those to you tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please come back tomorrow and I'll be sharing another Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate card.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc. for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards.  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
