Gorgeous April Change is Beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit

Wahoo! My April Paper Pumpkin Kit is done! The Change is Beautiful kit has a gorgeous color palette, but the subject matter wasn't quite to my liking, but I powered through and am very happy with my results. I was inspired by several other Demonstrators who shared their creations in the Facebook group - Paper Pumpkin Fan Club.

I did use other greetings and leftover pieces from other previous Paper Pumpkin kits to make these creations. I did not make any cards according to the directions.

I was inspired by the Stampin' Butterfly for the trio of cards on the left using the Good Feelings stamp set. I used Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo ink on a card base of Bermuda Bay or Crushed Curry.

The Stampin' Butterfly also had a similar card for the night sky ones on the right side, but for she had a blue moon and blue stars and I thought it was a no brainer to mount the night sky on Crushed Curry to remind me of a summery harvest moon concept and help it to POP!

The Stampin' Butterfly also inspired the trio of floral cards on the right, but I changed them into Happy Birthday cards. I tried to use the light Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends marker on the middle card but wasn't crazy with my result so stopped before doing the other cards.

On the right side, the top card is my original design, the next two cased an idea from Rachel Tessman, and the bottom card was inspired by the Stampin' Butterfly. 

Better photo of the top right card and its inner layer.

The two right middle cards opened up.

(True Confession time - With the cocoon card above, I had stamped the black butterfly where the Crushed Curry cardstock is, but when I closed the card, it SHOWED! Ugh! Thus the piece of Crushed Curry to cover the mistake and another butterfly stamped in a better position.)

The lower right card has the same inner layer as show in the top right card.


I cased one other amazing Demonstrator - Vy Tran (Crafting Daily Dose) for this incredible Waterfall Technique Card. I have never made this kind of card before, but I finally felt brave enough to try. I am happy with the result.


The last panel shown below is different because I had already used all the separate flower punch outs on another card design above. Luckily I hadn't used the large butterfly punch outs, so one went here!

Vy's You Tube video and the dimensions on her website were wonderful to follow. 

I am saving one more Paper Pumpkin card to share with you on Monday, so be sure to visit again to see the masterpiece!

Have a lovely day!
