Let someone know you’re thinking of them with this cute card.
In the center of the ombre card base from the kit, stamp the long stem flowers (from the Pick of the Crop Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Calypso Coral. Make sure to position them high enough so they peek through!
Adhere four Blackberry Bliss die-cut flowers over the stamped images to create a flower bunch. Fussy cut the top of the market wagon so you only have the green piece left. Then flip that upside down and use as a flower pot; adhere using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp the sentiment in Calypso Coral on the die-cut label with a long stem. Take the Stampin’ Spot and gently brush along the outside of the die-cut label to add color. Then use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere, placing the label so it sticks out of your flower pot. Tie a twine bow around the stem of the label for a final touch!
Supplies: Pick of the Crop Paper Pumpkin Kit
Create a card bursting with fresh flavor and creativity!
Cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 7" x 6" (17.8 x 15.2 cm) and fold to form a card front that is 3-1/2" x 6" (8.9 x 15.2 cm). Then cut out a piece that is slightly smaller, insert into the Gingham Embossing Folder, and pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine. Using a Blending Brush and Pool Party ink, lightly brush the color onto the embossed piece. Make a gradient but using more ink on the lower right section of your paper.
On the embossed piece, stamp a few clusters of blueberries (from the Pick of the Crop Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Night of Navy. Layer with two strawberry and blueberry die-cut pieces from the kit to create a cute fruit bunch.
Cut a 4" (10.2 cm) piece of Petal Pink Soft Polyester Ribbon and adhere over the die-cut pieces. On the reverse side of the long die-cut label from the kit, stamp the sentiment in Garden Green. Adhere so the middle of the label aligns with the ribbon.
Add a smattering of Fun Flower Resin Shapes in Calypso Coral. Finally, adhere your beautiful embossed piece onto the front of your card.

Think outside the gift box with this festive twist on gift and card packaging!
Stamp the long stem flowers (from the Pick of the Crop Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Shaded Spruce along the bottom of the Mini Shopping Bag from the kit.
Cut a 2-1/2" x 4" (6.4 x 10.2 cm) piece from the Teacup Boutique Designer Series Paper (green floral pattern). Trim the edges to create a gift
tag shape. Punch a hole in the top using the Label Me Fancy Punch.
Cut out the red gingham square from the Paper Pumpkin Kit card base. Adhere to the green floral tag using Stampin’ Dimenionals. (Place at an angle for a cute asymmetrical touch.)
Cut a 1" x 1/2" (2.5 x 1.3 cm) piece from Shaded Spruce Cardstock. Using VersaMark ink, stamp the sentiment then cover in white Embossing Powder. Remove the excess powder and emboss using the Heat Tool. Trim the right side edge to create a ribbon-style shape. Adhere to gingham square in the upper left corner.
Cut out a teacup and teapot image from the Teacup Boutique Designer Series Paper. Use a couple of the bread loaf die-cut images from the kit. Arrange together to create a picturesque picnic scene and adhere to the gingham square. Add a few glittery sequins to your tag for a fun pop.
Cut an 11" (29.7 cm) piece of Starry Sky and Parakeet Party Metallic Woven Ribbon. Tie both pieces around the right handle on the mini canvas bag. Then thread through the hole punch in the tag and tie a bow. Secure the tag to the bag with a dimensional.
