PPP Blog Hop: Sweet Sunflowers


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 August Paper Pumpkin Kit: Sweet Sunflowers.

This is one of my all time favorite kits. It is so pretty, and timely for us. My daughter wants to use Sunflowers in her wedding, so this kit will be perfect for the invites. Cannot wait to get started on them.

Here is the kit as designed:

Here is my alternate card. I have been wanting to try the Floating Card Technique for some time now. I love how this turned out, even tho' I cannot really see the floating part of it well. 

I really love how our other Stampin' Up! products coordinate so great with the Paper Pumpkin kits! It makes alternate projects sooooo easy! 

Hope you enjoyed my project! Let's hop on over to my friend Deb's blog to see what she has to show us....

Make sure to leave a comment, we always like a little love!!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

Painted Pheasant

 Are you ready for fall? I am! I love sweaters, pumpkin spice and the change in the air! With our recent move to Tennessee, we should see a real change in seasons, and I am excited about it. 

This or That Stampin' choices this week were: 

Painted Pheasant won. I got some good use out of the Stamparatus with the step stamping, and even on the pheasant, being able to stamp him more than once to mute some of the colors that I added. 

Here is what I did with this cute pheasant:

Pheasants bring back memories of my grandmother. We called her Granga. She had a pheasant that would visit her and eat out of her hand. I never met it, but remember seeing the pictures. Isn't it funny what can trigger memories sometimes?

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
