Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Card III

Today, I'll be sharing with you my third Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate card.  Again, I'm going in reverse.  I did make it into town and bought some Valentine's candy so, hopefully, I can share my heart pocket creations with you on Friday.

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 to those who could not leave a comment!

On to my third alternate card:

I'm really happy with the way my card turned out.  I'm really addicted to SU's Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit.  So many idea's.

For my card base, I used SU's Basic Black Card Stock.

I wanted my heart to resemble a beating heart!  So, I die cut one of the Mint Macaron and one of the Watermelon Wonder hearts from the kit with every other die (except the scalloped heart die) from SU's Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (Retired).  

I adhered the largest die-cut heart with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and then the next largest heart with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I repeated this process until all the hearts were adhered.  The last and smallest heart I stamped using SU's Watermelon Wonder Ink and the little heart from the Cute Conversations Stamp Set that is included in the kit.  The stamp set has some Valentine's sentiments, arrows and some hearts.

In the picture above, you can see how one heart is adhered with glue and the next is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and so on. 

I chose a scrap piece of SU's Botanicals Gardens Designer Series Paper and used SU's Triple Banner Punch to flag the end.  I had a scrap piece of SU's Watermelon Wonder Card Stock that I had cut a Mini Treat Bag out of (hence the zig zagged end) and stamped the sentiment from SU's Groovy Love Stamp Set (in the annual catalog) using SU's Black Archival Ink.  Then I stamped the little heart from the Cute Conversations Stamp Set in the kit using SU's Watermelon Wonder Ink.  I adhered the two banners together on the left end using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere them to the card.

I cut about 2" of the Watermelon Wonder Sequin Trim included in the kit and pulled off 4 sequins and adhered them randomly on the card using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

I adhered the rest of the sequin trim to the corner of the banners using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Using the Two-Tone Mint Macaron/Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine included in the kit, I tied a small bow and adhered it on top of the sequin trim using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

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!
