Stampin' Up! One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Project

Well, the rain didn't go away.  It came down in sheets for over 3 hours.  Two of our fruit trees are laying on the ground.  We have a BIG sink hole over the tube going from the pond to the river.  The pond was overflowed right up to our pole barn; but, has dropped 6 feet now.  My Husband couldn't make it to work this morning as the roads are impassable.  Cars are in ditches and debris is floating in the water current going over the roads.  You can't even get to WalMart and some employee's at Kohl's and WalMart were stranded inside the stores.   Midland's Baseball Diamonds are under water.  I've not ever seen flooding this bad in Midland.  I hope all the water recedes soon.  It's just crazy!!!

My share for today is Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Pocket Envelope alternate project that I designed.


Let's take a look: 


I cut apart one of the Gift Bags that is in the Kit.  I used the largest square (front of the Gift Bag) and trimmed it down to 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" which includes about a 1/4" flap on both sides and the bottom.  I adhered Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 3 flaps.

I trimmed the second square (back of the Gift Bag) down to 4" x 4-1/4".

I removed the protective liner of the Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered the two sides and bottom together to create a Pocket Envelope.

 
Using SU's new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, I punched two borders from Melon Mambo Cardstock.  I adhered one border to the bottom of the Pocket Envelope and one inside the top of the Pocket Envelope.

 
The Cotton Paper in the kit is really neat.  It has the Watermelon Pits printed on the paper.  I inserted a half sheet of the Cotton Paper into my Pocket Envelope.

 
Sorry my picture turned out so bad.  Sometimes it's hard to capture white on white in a photo.

Anyways, I trimmed out the back of one of the Cards to measure 3-3/8" x 4-1/2".


I trimmed out a piece of the Pre-Printed Card to measure 1" x 2" and adhered it to the back of the top of the note card for a Pull with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  

I then fussy cut out one of the Pineapples and adhered that to the pull with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I hadn't decided who the recipient will be for my Pocket Card and Envelope yet so I didn't embellish the Note Card.  I'm thinking that I will fussy cut out some of the fruit and adhere them along the edges or top and bottom of the Note Card.

 
Using the One in a Melon Stamp Set, I stamped my Watermelon and Rind onto one of the Circle Tags in the kit.  I cut the tag in half and adhered some Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of it.

Using SU's It's a Sara Thing April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit Stamp Set, I stamped the YOU, the ARE and the SO (I masked of the MUCH from the SO MUCH Stamp) onto one of the Pre-Water Colored Tags.

 
Using the Melon Mambo Baker's Twine in the Kit, I tied a bow and adhered it to the bottom of the Watermelon with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and then adhered the Watermelon to the Pre-Water Colored Tag.

Using one of the Lemon Lime Twist Clothespins in the Kit, I clipped the Tag to my Pocket Envelope.

 
I LOVE Paper Pumpkin Kits.  They are so fun to put together and I LOVE the challenge of creating Alternate Cards and Projects.  It's such a great get-a-way!

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

My share for today is Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Let's take a look:



Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit is a real 'Summer' winner with me!  The pre-printed Card Pattern is full of yummy, bright and cheery Summer Fruits and right on trend too.


The kit includes:
One in a Melon Photopolymer Stamp Set
Emerald Envy and Melon Mambo Classic Ink Spots
6 Printed Card Bases
4 Printed Bags
6 White Envelopes
4 Sheets Printed Cotton Paper
2 Sheets Watercolor Die Cut Pieces
2 Sheets White Die Cut Pieces
1 Sheet Laser Cut Leaf Stickers
4 Yds Pink Baker's Twine
4 Green Mini Clothespins
100 Dimensionals
100 Adhesive Dots


The coordinating Stampin' Up Colors are:
Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo


I'm in LOVE with the Watermelon Gift Bags and the Cotton Paper.  They are so SWEET!!!



I would suggest using one of Stampin' Up's Stampin' Pierce Mats underneath a couple sheets of paper when stamping with a larger, solid image Photopolymer stamp like the half Watermelon stamps in this kit.  The Stampin' Pierce Mat not only gives you more even pressure and ink coverage; but, it keeps your work surface clean too!

 
Love the pre-cut, pre-water colored banners.


Such a SWEET color combination!



I only made up two of the cards and two of the bags so I could use the rest of the kit for some alternate cards and project.

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

Here's the link to the Stampin' Up Store https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator. 

My share for today is a Happy Card that I designed using Stampin' Up's new Delightful Daisy and Color Theory Designer Series Paper, This Little Piggy and Grown with Love Stamp Sets and Daisy and Pretty Label Punch.

Let's take a look:



Stinkin' cute Little Piggy's again and again and again, eh!  =)  I have such a passion for all things animals and SU's This Little Piggy Stamp Set caught my eye immediately in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  Love, love and love these Little Piggy's!!!

My Card Base is Blushing Bride Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2" for a side opening Card.  I haven't made one of these in a while.

My Card Front Panel is a Dapper Denim Pattern in SU's new Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I trimmed out a strip of the Old Olive Leaf Pattern from SU's new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper to measure 1" x 5" and adhered only the two sides and the bottom to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.



For the wagon:  Using SU's new Grown with Love Stamp Set, I stamped the Wagon in Smokey Slate Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the bottom of the Wagon for the Wheels in Basic Black Archival Ink and the top of the Wagon in Real Red Ink.

When ordering from the new 2017-2018 Catalog, I missed ordering this set as a bundle so I don't have the Garden Grown Framelits Dies and had to fussy cut out the Wagon.  I fussy cut out the Smokey Slate Wagon and then adhered the fussy cut Red Wagon to the Smokey Slate Wagon with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and the fussy cut Wheels with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals as shown in the picture above.


Using SU's new This Little Piggy Stamp Set, I stamped the Piggy's, 3 Clouds and 8 extra Daisies onto Shimmery White Cardstock in Basic Black Archival Ink .


Using my Aqua Painter Brush and Blushing Bride Ink, I water colored my Piggy's.


I colored in the Piggy's Hooves with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and the Daisy's with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and fussy cut them out.

Using my 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch, I very carefully punched a tiny hole in the Piggy's tail and slid the Wagon Hitch into the Piggy's Tail.  I then very carefully adhered the Wagon and the walking Piggy to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue leaving the top of the Wagon free of adhesive.  I adhered the sitting Piggy under the top of the Wagon with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


I adhered 6 of the Daisy's underneath the strip of Old Olive Leaf Pattern Paper with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above. 


I added a tiny drop of Glue from SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle to the Center of each Daisy and to the White part of both Wheels to give them some extra shine.


I trimmed off the Stem from one Daisy and adhered it next to the sitting Piggy's Ear.  Isn't she sweet!!!

 
I brushed Wink of Stella on the 3 Clouds, let them dry and adhered them with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.

 
For the inside of my Card:  I trimmed out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to measure 3-1/2" x 4-1/4", rounded the corners and adhered it to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


Using SU's new Label Me Pretty Stamp Set, I stamped the Label and my Sentiment onto Blushing Bride Cardstock in Basic Black Archival Ink, punched it out with SU's new Pretty Label Punch and adhered it with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

 
I adhered the last Daisy next to my Sentiment with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

 
What a fun Card and my Fave so far.

Love, Love and LOVE these Little Piggy's!!!

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!
