Paper Pumpkin- Hey There Try It Kit Variations
The first box everyone starts with is this Hey There Try It Kit. It comes with a clear D block- $8.50 value alone- 2 clingmount stamps- The sentiment and the distressing splotchies, 4 basic grey cardbase, 4 sheets of precut DSP to layer and a sheet of adhesive diecut elements enough to make 4 cards, 4 white envelopes and 4 turquoise buttons, and a Basic Grey Stampin' Spot pad. All in all not a bad deal and I love the surprise element of it.
The kit comes with enough supplies to make four of the card shown on the left but you know me- Variety is the spice of life! and I had to use the supplies to make something different.
This card was made with the So Saffron base. I cut the Basic Grey Cardstock and the DSP to put on top of the So Saffron base. I put a dot where I thought the center of the green starburst would be with a pencil and then punched it to make a ring to put through the ribbon and embossed the Basic Grey CS with honeycomb to make variation #1.
Stamp the splotches and the sentiment in basic grey. Use a butterfly punch to punch out the yellow DSP right behind the green circle- it will hide it.
The basic grey CS is embossed with honeycomb EF and sanded to add some distress and show some white beneath. Add a strip of yellow band- left over from outside the banner. Adhere the green medallion, then butterfly with taper just down the center. Add a small basic jewel to accent.
I used a brush and cornstarch to make the wings not sticky as more but left the center sticky so it would add some dimension. Add a small jewel and variation #5.
I stamped the sentiment from a Round Array in Basic Grey onto the DSP and put the scallop around it to fit. Added strips left over from the banner around the center panel, added the scallop and used the left over circle of Basic Grey CS from card #2 to make the sun- and punched out the little butterfly again adn left over pieces of grey to make the stems. Add some jewels and layer over so saffron card with left over piece of basic grey - embossed together.
Limiting your supplies really forces your creative juices and I thought it was really fun!
