April 2022 Change is Beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit

So many great cards!! I had a lot of fun with this kit.

This is what the kit planned for the card (front and inside). Well kinda, I added a layer. So I cut the card base down to 5 1/4" x 4" then put it onto a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Crushed Curry piece of card stock. I like the final project, however, when I watched Rachel Tessman's video, I loved what she did with card base.

The front is very plain, but the inside has so much pretty glimmer. The blue, just like Racheal's, uses the new 2022-2024 In Color 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper, available in May. And the yellow is the retiring Ombre Specialty Paper. I loved how they both turned out. Thanks, Racheal for the great idea! She is like a Paper Pumpkin Queen! lol

When I made Racheal's card, it left the inside of the card and clouds for another card. Look how cute the Sweet Songbirds bundle completes this card. The Sweet Songbirds is a punch bundle that will be available in May.

Here is what the kit planned for the next card. It's a fancy fold, but like with the first one, I did cut the card base down again and added a Bermuda Bay card stock piece to the back.

However, using a 11" x 4 1/4" Bermuda Bay card base, scored @ 3/8", 1 7/8", 3 5/8",

5 1/8" & 5 1/2" and only the pieces which were meant for this card, you can make a great Bay Window card!!

I also used the Celebration Time stamp set (free in last month's kit) for the sentiments.

I love how this one turned out.

And last, but maybe my favorite!

This is what the kit had planned for this card. This fancy fold card with the growth of a flower. Once again, I cut the card base down and added a Bermuda Bay card stock piece to the back.

But look how easy you can turn it into a Tower Pinwheel card.

Here's the measurements for this additional card stock:

Bermuda Bay 4 pieces cut @ 4 1/4" x 2 3/4"

(Soon retiring) Pattern Party DSP (I used the Black Dots because it matched so well)

4 1/2" x 4 1/4" scored @ 1", 2", 3" @ 4" and 4 pieces cut @ 4" x 1 1/2"

When you make the Pinwheel card, you will have an extra big pink flower and a few small yellow flowers left over. Here's what I did with those.

I bent the Caterpillar stamp went I mounted it on the block so I could make it looks like it is climbing the stem of the flower. The stem and grass are stamps from the Wildflower Path Stamp Set.

I also cut the leaves from the flower and moved them to the bottom. I thought it looked better that way.

Here's a video to see how to cut the cards bases for the last 2 cards.

Thank for visiting!
