Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Card IV

And, my apologizes!

On to my fourth alternate Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin alternate card:

When there are hearts, there are Weddings!  So, of course, I had to create a wedding card!

For my card base, I used SU's Smoky Slate Card Stock.

I took one striped Smoky Slate/Whisper White and one Blushing Bride/Whisper White heart from the Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit and die-cut them with SU's Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (Retired) using the second and fourth die from the center.

In the picture above, I took some invisible thread and adhered it down the center opening of the Blushing Bride striped heart using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue and a Stampin' Dimensional to hold each end tight.  I stamped LOVE from SU's Groovy Love Stamp Set (in the annual catalog) and punched it out with SU's 3/4" Circle Punch.  I adhered the circle to the center of the invisible string using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

Also in the picture above, I cut the Smoky Slate striped heart underneath where the Blushing Bride heart crosses over the Smoky Slate heart so they would intersect and you would not see the cut.

I adhered both hearts to my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals with the Smoky Slate heart about 3/4" higher than the Blushing Bride heart.  This was harder than it looks as the Stampin' Dimensionals wanted to stick everywhere; but, I finally managed to get it right.

I had a leftover piece of SU Old Olive Card Stock that I had die-cut using SU's new Botanical Builders Framelits Dies so I adhered it to the bottom of the card base and trimmed off the ends even with the card base.  Love it when I can use something from my scrap tray!

Using SU's 2" Scalloped Circle Punch, I punched a scalloped circle out of SU's Blushing Bride Card Stock and adhered it to the bottom left corner of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.  

Using SU's 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle Punch, I punched a scalloped circle out of SU's Whisper White Card Stock.  I stamped the sentiment from SU's new Happy Happening's Stamp Set (a new FAVE of mine) in VersaMark and then embossed it using SU's Smoky Slate Embossing Powder and my heat tool.  I adhered the embossed scalloped circle to the Blushing Bride scalloped circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I tied a double bow with SU's Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate Baker's Twine and adhered it to the top of the Smoky Slate heart.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please come back tomorrow and I'll share a project I made using the 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!

  1. This is a FRESH and TRENDY style card that I'm NUTS over. Favorite part has to be the swinging 'love' circle. GREAT JOB MY FRIEND!
