PPP Blog Hop: So Cool

 


Hi there!! Thanks for coming along on the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and how easy it is to make the kits the way they were designed. But we also, love to show you different ways to use them!

This month's kit is so fun with popsicles, watermelons and rainbows! The shaped cards are unique, and the colors so bright, you can just taste summer!

I had a kit sent to my 6 year old grand daughter. We frequently color together on Facetime. This will be a new experience, but now we can stamp together. She is going to love it!

Here are the cards the way they were designed:


Since this Paper Pumpkin coordinates with the Ice Cream Corner Suite from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog, I chose to make a shaker card using the sprinkles from the suite. Here is my alternative;



Thanks again for joining us. Come along with me to see what alternate project the Oh So Cool, Janey has created for us. If you like what you see along the way, please leave us a comment. A little love is always good for the soul! 


May's Paper Pumpkin info...

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Batter Up!, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about, then share the message with your friends, family, and customers! Play ball!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Here's to You

 


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 March Paper Pumpkin Kit: Here's To You

 

This month's kit made 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. They even came envelopes and with coordinating envelope liners! Here are the cards as designed:



Have I mentioned the envelope liners?! I love the print on one of them sooo much that I used it as a focal point on one of my cards and an accent on the other. 


Here is the first one, showcasing the envelope liner. I used everything from the kit, except the Seaside layer behind the liner. Can you see why I love the liner? I think it is so pretty!


And, my second card. I had pieces of the liner left over, and didn't want to waste it, so I kept creating. Here I, again, used everything from the kit, except the Old Olive layers behind the liner and pre printed landscape piece. I had to cut the landscape piece down to allow more of the pretty liner paper to show. 


 I hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create. Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Darla's blog to see what fun project she has created to share with us! So glad you could join us!

 

It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!! 


Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

Gilded Leafing Technique

 Hi there!! Today is Creative Crafternoon over on my Facebook page and I was playing with the Gilded Leafing and the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. I used sketch 476 from the Freshly Made Sketches blog as my inspiration.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:


First, I used a Blender Brush to add some color to the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used Tear & Tape for the strips, and then covered with the Gilded Leafing, using a sponge to remove the excess. You can watch the process on my video here.

Hope you like my card! 
Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Be a Unicorn!!

Here is the card I did on my Tuesday Creative Crafternoon on 3/9/21. I used the Hippo Happiness Bundle. I have a 6 year old granddaughter who loves Unicorns. We have the same unicorn coloring book and color on FaceTime together. She will be getting this card down the road. 

Here is a close up of the cute little guy!

ICS Blog Hop: Hippo Happiness Bundle

  


Hello, and welcome to the March Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are glad you are hoping with us. 

This month, our theme is "our Favorite Bundle". Hopefully, we can inspire you to create with a bundle you own but may have been gathering dust, like mine has.


I chose the Hippo Happiness Bundle. I love the labels in the dies, and have used them a lot. But, I have neglected the stamp set. 😢


So, I pulled it out, dusted it off and created a card for my Facebook live today and another for my blog tonight.  Here is the blog card:



These little fella's are super cute, and creating with them was not difficult once I got started. 


I paired it with the Well Suited Designer Series Paper, and pulled the colors from it. Here is the inside: 


And...it is a Fun Fold, Easel Card.


I hope you like my card. Leave me a comment, and then follow the hop to see what the others have been inspired to share with you!! The talented Elizabeth is up next, come with me to see what she has for us!!

ICS Blog Hop: Flowers and Field Designer Series Paper

 


I am so happy that you could join us on the February Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! 


This month, we are again focusing on our favorite Sale A  Bration products. I chose the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (DSP) to showcase. I love the black backgrounds and vibrant colors in this DSP. 

Only 3 more weeks! Don't miss out on your favorite products!!


I, also, used the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set. I think it is one of the more fun stamp sets in our January-June Mini Catalog. These are the same chicks from the Hey Chick stamp set from 2017 Sale A Bration, but they are now partying!! And Stampin' Up! was too kind and brought back the Hey Chick Stamp Set. They also came out with coordinating dies for both Chick sets!! How fun is that?! 



I recently came across a Spanner Panel Card, and have been dying to try it. It is a fun-fold, and has 3 layers, so I can showcase lots of chicks!!!

Here is the front of the card:


Lift the front panel, and this is hiding behind the dancing chick:


And, lastly, lift the little chick, and find a party with cupcakes waiting for you to join!!


How fun is this card?! 

Thanks so much for joining us! Leave me a comment, and then follow the hop to see what the others have been inspired to share with you!! The talented Joni is up next, let's go see what she has for us!!


Did you like this fun fold? I did a video on my Facebook page earlier today, showing how to make it. Check it out here

PPP Blog Hop: Sending Hearts

 


Hi friend!! Thanks for joining me on our January Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. I love Paper Pumpkin the way it is, but....I also like to challenge myself to make other things with it. I love to see what others do with it, and am always amazed at the creativity. 

This month, we not only got the kit, but we also got an add-on kit with the cutest little polka-dot boxes!! I used  one of those boxes and made some cute little cards to pop in it. These are the cutest little snails, and, unlike the speed of a snail, they went together so fast. I love this, cuz I am a fairly simple stamper, and prefer cute and fast!!!

I started by decorating the box with a cute belly band: 


Then, filled it up!


I made them all the same, just changed to color scheme. I colored the snail with Stampin' Blends, and even colored one of the pink hearts with the Poppy Parade blend, so it would pop against the Petal Pink card. 


Here is a closer look: 


And I stamped the big heart of hearts inside: 


Thanks so much for taking a look! Keep on hopping to see what fun the other bloggers created with this cute kit!! I bet you see several projects you will want to copy!! Feel free to leave a comment on any of the blogs as you go along. We "love" to hear from you!

Pop on over to Janey's blog next. I know she has some fun project for us to check out!


So, what’s in store for next month’s kit? February’s Paper Pumpkin kit—Bouquet of Hope—provides a way to offer comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges. With beautiful blooms and supportive sentiments, the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit will soothe sorrow and share sympathy in a heartfelt, handmade way. While you can create nine cards of comfort and coordinating envelopes with next month’s kit, the kit’s exclusive, versatile stamp set can be used to uplift loved ones during trying times, any time.


This is great timing for this kit. Don't miss out....contact your demonstrator to subscribe. If you don't have a demonstrator, I would love for you to join with me!! Click here
