Chipboard Pumpkin

by Dina Kowal

Use oval dies to create a fun pumpkin embellishment.

Supplies

  • Chipboard (cereal boxes used here)
  • Oval dies in various sizes (Spellbinders dies used here)
  • Gesso (white)
  • Acrylic paint (orange, green)
  • Craft or permanent ink that can be stamped over acrylic paint (Memento Luxe, Versafine, Versamagic, Colorbox craft inks will work - Versafine Vintage Sepia used here)
  • Stamps to embellish the project – script, small texture, etc.
  • Leaf die
  • Die cutting machine
  • Florist wire
  • Magnet or small clothespin
  • Hot glue gun

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Choose 2-3 oval dies to create the pumpkin shape.

    For a tall pumpkin, choose 2 dies. One will be the base. The central oval should be narrower than the base, and about the same height or slightly taller.

  2. For a wider pumpkin, choose a die for the base. The next layer can either be a smaller vertical oval that is slightly shorter than the height of the base, or a horizontal oval that matches the height slightly in from the ends (cut 2). The central oval should be vertical and narrow, about the height of the base.

  3. Step 2

    Die cut the pieces needed out of chipboard. You may want to cut an extra base piece to cover any printing on the back side.

    TIP:
    Upcycle a cereal box for this project!

  4. Step 3

    Die cut a leaf from the chipboard.

  5. Step 4

    Hand cut a stem for the pumpkin from the chipboard sheet as shown. The stem can be long or short, flaring out on one end.

  6. TIP:
    Use the edge of one of the cut ovals for the curve of the stem.

  7. Step 5

    Give each piece of the pumpkin a coat or two of white gesso. Chipboard is absorbent, so this will give the paint a good base and prevent it from soaking in. Let dry.

  8. Paint the chipboard pieces using acrylic craft paint. Add a second coat after drying, if needed.

  9. Step 7

    Create a 3” long spiral with florist wire by wrapping the wire around a paintbrush handle.

  10. Leave about an inch of the wire straight at each end. Cut the spiral in half with wire cutters. Save the other end for another pumpkin.

  11. Step 8

    Assemble the pumpkin. Glue the second layer ovals to the base first.

  12. Before adding the central piece, use hot glue to attach the stem and wire spiral.

  13. Step 9

    Adhere the central oval piece.

  14. Adhere the second base piece to the back of the pumpkin to cover any paint or printing.

  15. Step 10

    Add the die cut leaf, along with any other embellishments you choose.

Pencil Shaded Watercolor

by Debby Hughes

Add more dimension to a watercolored image by deepening shadows with colored pencil.

Supplies

  • Outline stamp (Clearly Besotted Merci Beaucoup used here)
  • Embossing ink (Versamark used here)
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat tool
  • Watercolor paper (Arches hot pressed watercolor card used here
  • Painter's tape
  • Watercolor medium (various tube watercolors used here, including Daniel Smith Quinacridone Coral and Quinacridone Gold, Schmincke Olive Green Yellowish and Naples Yellow Reddish)
  • Paint brushes (#1 round and #24 flat brushes used here)
  • Colored pencils (Prismacolor Raspberry, Black Raspberry, Kelp green, 90% Cool Grey, and Goldenrod used here)
  • Blending solvent, such as odorless mineral spirits, baby oil, etc.
  • Paper stumps or other blending tool
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (used here: Clearly Besotted Message Me clear stamp set, Foam Tape (3M), Twine (May Arts), embellishments (Little Things From Lucy’s Cards, Champagne Sequin Mix, pink rhinestones – unknown source), Mini MISTI, Adhesive (Ranger Multi Medium Matte), Ink Blender (Ranger mini ink blender), Bone Folder & Stylus, Cardstock (Neenah Desert Storm, Bazzill Lollipop, Antique Linen Distress Ink))

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Prepare watercolor paper by cutting it to the desired size.

  2. Step 2

    Stamp an outline image in embossing ink.

    TIP:

    Before stamping, treat the card with an antistatic powder tool to prevent stray embossing powder.

  3. Heat emboss with white embossing powder.

  4. Step 3

    Tape the watercolor card to a board or to your work surface using painter's tape.

  5. Begin with a clear wash of water to dampen the paper in and around the outline of the image. This gives a good base for watercoloring. Use a wide brush for broad, horizontal strokes.

  6. Step 4

    Add color to the darkest areas of the image with a smaller round brush, allowing the water on the paper to move the color into lighter areas. Add more water as needed to assist color flow.

  7. Step 5

    Deepen shading with darker colors after the base colors are complete. This will add dimension and make the flower look more realistic.

  8. Step 6

    Ground the image by adding a background of color around it. Blend out the color with lots of water. Add in colors used in the image for more depth.

    Let the panel dry completely, and remove the tape.

  9. Step 7

    Use colored pencil to add more details and shadows. This preserves the layers of watercolor while adding depth to the image.

  10. Step 8

    Blend out the color using a paper stump dipped in odourless mineral spirits or another solvent. (For instructions on pencil blending with solvents, see our tutorial HERE.)

  11. Step 9

    Add the painted panel to a card or other project.

  12. Step 10

    Complete the project.

Step-by-Step

Envelope Punch Board Tote

by Susan Campfield

Use the Envelope Punch Board to create this cute little bag in a box. Special thanks to Sam Hammond from the United Kingdom, whose project inspired this tutorial.

Supplies

  • Two Sided Patterned Paper, 6” x 6” (Stampin’ Up!® Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Envelope Punch Board
  • 1” Circle Punch
  • Ribbon, baker’s twine, or clip (Stampin’ Up!® 3/8” Ribbon Trio Pack used here)
  • Glue Dots
  • Scissors
  • Stamps to embellish the box (Stampin’ Up!® Paisley Framelits Dies and Copper Foil Sheets used here)
  • Treats

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Place the 6” x 6” patterned paper in the envelope punch board. Line up the left edge to the 1 3/8” mark and punch.

  2. Without moving the paper, place the tip of the scoring tool that comes with the punch board inside the opening, touching the side on the left. Press down and score along the entire length of the paper following the diagonal groove on the punch board.

  3. Step 2

    Slide the paper so the left edge is at the 4” mark and punch.

  4. Without moving the paper, place the tip of the scoring tool that comes with the punch board inside the opening, touching the side on the left. Press down and score along the entire length of the paper following the diagonal groove on the punch board.

  5. Step 3

    The paper should now look like this.

  6. Step 4

    Rotate your paper one turn to the left. From now on, you will NOT use the ruler at the top of the punch board.

  7. Instead, line up the score line on your paper to the pointer (also known as the score guide) on the punch board.

  8. Step 5

    With the pointer lined up with the score line, punch.

  9. Without moving the paper, place the tip of the scoring tool that comes with the punch board inside the opening, touching the side on the left. Press down and score along the entire length of the paper following the diagonal groove on the punch board.

  10. Step 6

    Slide the paper to the left so that the pointer is lined up with the next score line.

  11. Punch and score again.

  12. Step 7

    The paper should now look like this.

  13. Step 8

    Rotate the paper one turn to the left again. Line up the pointer with the first score. Punch and score.

  14. Step 9

    Slide the paper to the left until lined up with the next score line. Punch and score.

  15. Rotate the paper and repeat the process. Make sure to line up the pointer with the score line – do not use the ruler.

  16. Step 10

    The paper should now look like this.

  17. Step 11

    Use the built in corner rounder on the punch board to round all of the corners.

  18. Step 12

    Cut up on the score line next to the wide triangle. Stop cutting when you come to an intersecting score line.

  19. Repeat cutting on the other side.

  20. Step 13

    Rotate the paper to the other wide triangle and repeat this process - cutting on the score lines until you meet the intersecting score line.

  21. Step 14

    Fold on all of the score lines.

  22. Step 15

    Use the 1” punch to punch out a scrap piece of paper. Place temporary glue on the back of this circle to make a template. Place the circle approximately where you would like the hole to go.

  23. Line up the punch so you can see all of the white circle and punch. This will help you get the hole exactly where you want it.

    Punch a hole on the other side using the same process.

  24. Step 16

    Use glue dots to assemble the box. Place a glue dot on one flap. Fold it on the score line.

  25. You will see that it will cross in front of the box. Press the glue dot to the box.

  26. Step 17

    Place another glue dot in the corner of the other flap – attach it to the other flap so that they cross over one another.

  27. Repeat on the other side of the box.

  28. Step 18

    Fold the remaining tab out for a contrasting look, or tuck it in to the inside if you do not want it to show.

  29. Secure with a glue dot.

  30. Step 19

    Place the treat in the box and secure the handle with a ribbon, twine, or a clip.

  31. Step 20

    Decorate the front of the box.

    The finished project measures 2 3/8" wide, 1 1/2" deep, 3 3/8" tall.

  32. Be creative with tiny totes themed for holidays or everyday gift giving.
