Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: Hugs from Shelli

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. Each month we will show you other "Possibilites" to do with the Paper Pumpkin monthly kits.

We love sharing our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, and we will share alternate ideas on how we used the very special May Paper Pumpkin Kit: Hugs from Shelli.

Here are the projects as designed:

The cards in this kit were beautiful as designed, and I was happy making them that way. I actually had a hard time at first trying to decide what to do for my alternate. But eventually the creative juices started flowing and this is what I came up with. 

I used the kit pieces to make an easel card. I added the Vanilla cardbase, some Peacock and Blushing card stock for the circles, and used the Pool Party Stampin' Blends to color my bird. The rest of the supplies came from the kit. 

Here is the flat card front:

I cut the front off one of the cards for the bottom half of the front, and then cut it down to size I needed. I used the remaining strip for inside the card under the sentiment. The Vanilla cardstock for the bird and the sentiment came from the back of the cut up card. I used the new Timeless Label Punch for the sentiment. 

If you like my project, please leave me a comment. We could all use a little love now and again! Once you have commented, click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to June's blog to see what fun alternate project awaits you!
