Stampin' Up! One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate 3D Project, 3 x 3 Cards & Holder - 5

Happy 4th of July!  Hope it's a fun and safe Holiday for all of you!

We have a 20% risk of pop up thunder storms for today and it is supposed to be in the 80's.  The storms are supposed to stay South of us; but, we shall see.

My share for today is another of Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate projects that I designed.  I also used SU's new Pretty Label Punch.

Let's take a look:

Today, I will be sharing with you the last of four 3" x 3" Cards.  I'll share the Card Box Holder that I designed with you tomorrow.

My Card Base is Emerald Envy Cardstock cut at 3" x 6" and scored at 3" for a side opening Card.

My First Card Front Panel is Crushed Curry Cardstock cut at 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

My Second Card Front Panel is a piece of the Pre-Printed Card Bases from the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit cut at 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and adhered to my First Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using the One in a Melon Stamp Set from the Kit, I stamped the Rind in Emerald Envy Ink and the Melon in Melon Mambo Ink onto one of the Round Die Cut Tags in the Kit. 

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! 

I cut the tag in half and adhered it to my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using the Melon Mambo Baker's Twine in the Kit, I wrapped it around the side of my Card and tied it into a Bow.

For the inside of my Card:  Using SU's One in a Melon Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Crushed Curry Cardstock.

Using SU's new Pretty Label Punch, I punched out the Sentiment and adhered it to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I fussy cut one of the Watermelon's out from the Pre-Printed Card Bases and adhered it underneath the Sentiment with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I had some left over scraps from the Pre-Printed Card Bases so I adhered a strip that measures 1/4" x 3" to the bottom of the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Pictured above are the 4 Envelopes for my Cards.  I fussy cut out 4 of the Pineapple's from the Pre-Printed Card Bases in the kit and adhered them to the Envelopes with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Gosh...I LOVE this Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I have so many idea's for thing's to create with it.  I could go on and on and on.

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

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes 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; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
