All the Little Things: A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop



Hi! I’m Vy with Crafting Daily Dose. Welcome to this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop, featuring alternatives for the April 2023 All the Little Things kit.


This kit included supplies for 9 cards—3 each of 3 different designs. Kits always come with an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives. As of today, refills are still available for this kit.


Crafting has always been a good outlet for me. When things are hectic, I really appreciate having a kit where everything coordinates, so that I can easily combine elements to make something special, even when I don't have the luxury of more time.


This first card uses only pieces from the kit, but I did add in some extra ink colors.



To create this card, I cut off the right edge of the front panel and added a piece of the envelope to the inside of the card so that it shows through. I used that fun texture stamp to add dots on the card front using Calypso Coral ink; I stamped off onto scrap paper first to get a lighter image on the card. Next, I adhered the large die cut, being careful not to put glue on the parts that extended past the edge. I like the impact of the wide white border on this large die cut. The smaller flowers are more like embellishments, though, so I fussy cut those borders off. The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso ink and elevated with Dimensionals foam adhesive. Twine and iridescent rhinestones from the kit added the finishing touches.



Measurements:

- Kit card

  • 7-1/4" (W) x 5-1/2" (H), existing score line now at 3" along the long side (cut 1-1/4" off from the card front)

-Kit envelope

  • 1-1/2" (W) x 5-1/2" (H)


 

The second project is a clear card made from Window Sheet, but the other pieces are from the kit. I adhered the beautiful leaf panel using mini glue dots in the corners and in the centers of the 2 side edges (6 glue dots in total). From the back, you can see them a little bit, but it's pretty subtle, and it doesn't detract from the look.



Once the clear panel is opened, there's a smaller card. You'll recognize this as one of the cardbases from the kit, trimmed down a bit. I added Adhesive Sheet to the back of this mini card and attached it to the window sheet card. After I added a sentiment label here, I flipped the front panel back down so that I could position the other label so that it would hide the inside one. The sentiments were stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.


I saved the bit of cardstock trimmed from the cardbase and added it to the innermost part of the card. I had some extra small flower diecuts to include, but if you've run out, you can stamp the included small flower image instead. Finally, I placed a few iridescent rhinestones on the front.



Measurements:

- Window Sheet

  • 4-1/4" (W) x 11" (H), scored at 5-1/2" along the long side

-Kit card

  • 4" (W) x 10-1/2" (H), scored at 5-1/4" along the long side. Save the 4" (W) x 1/4" (H) piece you trimmed off for the inside.
