Hoppin' into the Pumpkin Patch - Last day of the Blog Hop

We end this week's Blog Hop with one of my favorite things from the Autumn portion of the catalog - the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle!

The first time I ran the pumpkin through the Big Shot - I knew I had to create a way to become the Fairy Godmother and wave some dazzling diamonds and turn that thing into Cinderella's carriage.  You see in my house we have a Disney addict.  She has been that way since before she could speak in full sentences.  She is an adult.  And will be going to Disney this fall break on her own.  Because - well - we went last year.  Maybe she shall meet her Prince.  Just Sayin.  Her dream wedding of course takes place at the castle. So I see princess material in everything :)

The video is about 3 minutes long -see how easy the transformation is!

I knew the pumpkin would be the carriage - that left me to find something that would work for the wheels.  I have some of the swirly circles, but I wanted something a little more grown up and ornate.

A friend of mine had given me a gorgeous card she made with the Season to Sparkle bundle and the card was still in my display stand from my camp last week.  I realized the chandelier was the right size and just the right amount of swirl.

I used the multipurpose adhesive sheets.  It makes working with the fiddly and thin dies so much easier.  The glimmer paper can be harder to cut - I always cut on the paper side, twice through. Then just flip your whole sandwich over and run it through once more.  This just assures that it all cuts - especially since the adhesive is one more layer.

I added the adhesive on the vellum under where the ribbon would go.  Once the card was assembled then I added another dot under the sections that were colored blue.  It is stuck on good and tight - and you don't see ANYTHING through the vellum.  That vellum ribbon is BEAUTIFUL.  Most worthy of a Princess card.  The whole card is so shimmery in real life.  You need to make one - so you can see!

Thanks for stopping by this week - please add me to whatever Blog reader or feed that you use!  Now, head on to see what Francine has in her patch!

If you have already been there and are hopping the other direction then you can go visit Amanda!

I have the special for FREE test tubes and copper thread running right now (hit the HOME) button and go back to the test tube post for details on that.  But I KNOW some of you are going to have some princesses you knew as soon as you saw this that you have to make this for!  So - if you would rather take the Carriage Special - then here is your other option:  Purchase $125 from my webstore before September 25th and I will send you the Patterned Pumpkin thinlit die set FREE.  You must enter the Hostess Code 2MVRWQRT when prompted.  OR If you order $150 - you will hit your own hostess benefits.  You will get all of the hostess items that Stampin' Up! always provides.  Simply email me by September 25th and let me know that you ordered the Chandelier die as part of your $!50 order and I will send you the Pumpkin die free!
