"Hugs from Shelli" May's Paper Pumpkin Kit & My Altered Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! This month's Paper Pumpkin kit, "Hugs from Shelli" is ahhhhmmmaazzzing! I just love it! The card designs and stamp set are fabulous, however, I felt like being a bit of rebel and doing something a little bit different! I actually cut up a couple of patterned cards to use the design as card layers. Here are the supply list and details for this card:

  • Paper Pumpkin Kit: Hugs from Shelli ~ May 2019
  • Inks: Tranquil Tide [147146], Petal Pink [147108]
  • Paper: Early Espresso [119686], Crumb Cake [120953], Pool Party [122924], Tranquil Tide [144246]
  • Other: Blender Pens [102845], 1-3/8" (3.5 Cm) Scallop Circle Punch [146139], 1-1/8" (2.9 Cm) Scallop Circle Punch [146138], 1/2" Circle Punch [119869], Decorative Ribbon Border Punch [143721], Pearl Basic Jewels [144219], Stamping Sponges [141337], Liquid Multipurpose Glue [110755], Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint [147044]

  1. Fold 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” Early Espresso card stock in half to create card base.
  2. Cut Crumb Cake card stock 4” x 5” and ruffle edges with finger tip.
  3. From kit, cut Pool Party card base in half. Tear bottom edge of patterned piece and glue the torn bit behind the Crumb Cake layer. Ruffle edge of Pool Party patterned card stock and glue to front card.
  4. Ink sentiment with Early Espresso and stamp on lower left side of Crumb Cake card stock.
  5. From the kit, cut newsprint pattern card in half and then tear the patterned piece in half again. Save one of the pieces for another card or project. Stamp birds with Early Espresso onto the newsprint pattern. Colour birds with Petal Pink ink pad and blender pen. Add splatter stamp image with Tranquil Tide ink pad. Rufffle edges with finger tip and glue to card.
  6. Cut 3 1/2” x 3/4” strip of Tranquil Tide card stock with Decorative Ribbon Punch. Crumple slightly and tuck under stamped bird piece, glueing into place.
  7. To create paper flower: cut one circle each from Pool Party card stock (1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punch & 1/2" Circle Punch). Sponge edges of each circle with Early Espresso ink. Lightly mist circle with water and crumple. Open up slighty and set aside to dry. Once circle are dry stack them on top of each other, gluing together. Adhere to front of card. Place pearl in centre.
  8. Glue a piece of Tranquil Tide velvet ribbon to card, as shown on sample.
  9. Make a bow with ribbon and twine from twine from kit and glue on top of the Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon.
  10. Lightly spritz card with Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint (mix a few drops of paint with 70% rubbing alcohol in a bottle).
