Paper Pumpkin Possibilities: Welcome Inn


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 June Paper Pumpkin Kit: Welcome Inn

Here are the kit elements:

And the cards as designed: 

I try to focus on the stamp set, and how it can be used with other Stampin' Up! products, once the kits components are used up. Here is my alternate card:

From the kit, along with the stamp set, I did use one of the card fronts and cut 1/2" strips from it, and one of the white vases, which I stamped on.  I added a Night of Navy card base, and some Basic White cardstock , to complete the card. 

I, also, used the add-on dies to cut the flowers out for the card front. This is the 2nd time Stampin' Up! has offered dies as an add on! It has been a hit both times! 

Thanks so much for checking out my blog. Hop on over to Terri's blog to see how she is Welcoming you Inn!!

Sweet Citrus

Hi friends! 

I hope all is well with you. I wanted to share a card made on my Thursday Facebook Live called, This or That Stampin'. This stamping time is decided by the viewers. You choose which stamp set I will create with. 

On Wednesday, I post 2 stamp sets. You get to pick which one I will use in my Thursday live. Just go vote, then come back and watch...easy for you! Sometimes easy for me, sometimes not, haha!

Last week the choices were: 

Sweet Citrus won!

The Sweet Citrus Stamp Set, not only has coordinating dies, it also has an embossing folder and it is a hybrid folder where you can insert the dies and cut out the image, while you are embossing it! Super cool, right?! 

Here is what I made using all the elements of this bundle:

Love the Wink of Stella sparkle on the inside fruit. I makes the fruit look juicy. 

Don't forget to stamp your envelope!

Join me on my Facebook page to see how this was made.

I hope you enjoy it. This bundle is a must have!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
