PPP Blog Hop: Lovely Day


Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share 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, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the February Paper Pumpkin Kit: Lovely Day.

This month's kit made 9 lovely cards, 3 each of 3 designs. Here are the cards as designed:


I knew you all thought I would make a box, since you know I love making boxes from the printed card bases, so...I didn't! Instead, I decided to make a fun fold card using some of the leftover pieces that would normally be thrown away. I used the inside "burst" pieces that came from the blue colored card. I used two of them, so I could put one on the inside, and one on the outside covering the inside one, making it a surprise when the card opens.


I used Stampin' Blends to color the cake frosting and candle, but did use the provided stamp to color the cake itself. I stamped Celebrate in Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry, 1st, 2nd & 3rd generation colors, randomly on the background before adhering the cake piece. 


Thanks so much for taking the time to hop with us!  Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Deb's blog to see what fun alternate project she has to share with you!
