Paper Pumpkin June 2020 Box of Sunshine Alternative Handmade Card using Fun Techniques

Today I would like to share my fourth alternative project with you using the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Box of Sunshine. This card has a lot of fun techniques, I do some clear block water coloring, and add gold embossing to the gold foil circles. I love the elements on this card and hope you do too. I hope you enjoy this tutorial. I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

1- Start by creating the clear block water coloring. On the F block place Crushed Curry ink in the center of the block, add the Poppy Parade on one side and the Bermuda Bay on the other. Spritz with water and turn over onto the white side of a cardbase from the kit. Remove clear block and let dry.
2- On the Sunray cardbase remove static with a dryer sheet. Then stamp the sun stamp in VersaMark over the gold circle, off set the image a little. Add gold embossing powder, remove the excess and any that has stuck outside of the circle with a paint brush, and heat with a heat tool. Stamp the sun stamp 2 more time on the Gold Foil Sheet and repeat with the embossing. Cut out 2 - 1 ½” circles over these stamped images, off set them slightly.
3- When the watercolor wash is dry. Add some splattering with the water painters and matching color ink. Let dry and punch 10 flowers with the small bloom punch. 
4- Add one Black and White stripe just over the bottom of the gold circle on the cardbase. Place a second one under the first so it looks like one larger piece. Flag the ends of the Just Jade strip and place in the center over the seam. Place the two gold circles below the circle on the cardbase. Trim any that are hanging off the card. 
5- Arrange the punched flowers on the left side of the cardbase. Add some Wink of Stella on each petal and a small pearl in the center of each one. 
6- Stamp your greeting on a scrap piece of white cardstock in Basic Black ink and fussy cut. Add to the card.

All Done!
