Every Last Piece: Paper Pumpkin August 2017

When I opened the August Paper Pumpkin box yesterday, I decided I was going to finish the projects and use Every. Single. Piece.

Once I finished making a few of the cards as shown in the kit, I got a little more creative (as shared yesterday) and finished off the cards but still had die cuts and leaf stickers left over! So I grabbed some whisper white card stock, some painter’s tape, some sponge daubers and 3 ink pads: Peekabook Peach, Pool Party and Pear Pizazz (not included in the kit). Here’s what I did:

I taped the edges of the paper down and used the empty die-cut pages as a stencil for sponging flowers! Add a few leaves and sponge around the edges, and when you peel back the tape, it gives the illusion of layers…pretty neat, eh?

All I had to do next was add the pre-printed sentiment die cuts and embellish with the leftover goodies: IMG_5047

All left-over leaves and flowers found their way onto the envelopes:
