A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - One in a Melon

Welcome to our fabulous A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!  Every month I receive a surprise card/project kit from Stampin' Up!, and the June kit is melon/fruit themed. 

I love the kit this month as I am a big fan of vegetables, fruit, gardening, and the farmers market!  This box just screams summer fruit season!!  I created this alternate card & project while I was visiting my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator and friend in Texas.  I am so glad I worked on it early as I am under the weather this week.  I'm a big fan of the note cards in the kit, so that was my inspiration for my card & project.

Details for the card:
  • Note card from kit
  • Yellow banner from kit (intended for kit bag)
  • Banner from kit with sentiment from Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set in Emerald Envy
  • Circle piece (intended for kit bag) and cut in two 
  • Lemon stamped on circle piece with full strength Crushed Curry for skin/rhind and inside/fruit is stamped in Crushed Curry after stamping off
  • Wink of Stella is used on the lemon to make it shimmer
Details for the tea bag wrapper project:
  • Band is cut from the watermelon bag
  • 1 3"4" circle punch cut out from the note card front
  • Tabs for Everything stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist for the "FOR YOU" and "enjoy" sentiments on the back of the whisper part of the note card
  • Circle Tab Punch for the "enjoy" and 3/4" circle punch for the "FOR YOU"

I hope you enjoyed my card and project.  Thanks for visiting!  Your next hop in the blog is Rachel!
