Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun ~ Alternate Card

Hi there!  Welcome to my blog.  Instead of sharing a card from the catalog, today I'm sharing a card using the stamps from December's Paper Pumpkin Kit, Lots of Pun.  We love puns in our house, and this kit is full of some great ones!  

Card Base ~ Pool Party Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Scrap of Poppy Parade Cardstock and scraps of Basic White Cardstock
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 51/4"

  • Create the background with the Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blend. 
  • Stamp the banana four times with Daffodil Delight Ink on the scraps of Basic White Cardstock. 
  • Color the bananas with the Light Stampin' Blend and the stems with the Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends.  
  • Stamp the smiley face on one banana with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  
  • Fussy cut all the bananas.  Then, glue them together, as shown.  Make sure to keep the smiling banana on top. 
  • Stamp the dots with Poppy Parade ink, beginning where you want to put the bananas and going off the edge of Layer 1. 
  • Heat emboss the sentiment on the scrap of Poppy Parade cardstock with White Embossing Powder.  Trim around the sentiment with Paper Snips. 
  • Adhere Layer 1 to the card base.  Then, add the bananas.  
  • Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the sentiment to the front of the card. 
  • If you still have a heart from your Paper Pumpkin kit, add one next to the bananas, as shown. 

On the Inside Layer, stamp the banana in the lower right color, and color to match the ones on the front of the card.  Stamp the word bubble and 'hi' with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Adhere this layer to the inside of your card. 

Thanks for visiting by blog!

Happy Stamping!
