Paper Pumpkin Possibilities: Delicate Wings

 


Hello Crafty Friends!! It is time once again for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! This is where we show you some alternate uses for your Paper Pumpkin kits. Now, we love Paper Pumpkin, and are happy with the projects as designed, but sometimes we like to challenge ourselves and make some other things up with them.

I didn't do it this time, but these would make some very cute boxes!! I might have to do that with some of the remaining kit contents. But for now, here is my card:


I normally like to use the stamps when I am creating my alternates, and I did use stamps on the front, the splatter and the words, and on the inside.

Here is my inside:


 I also used some of the extra kit contents, and cut up one of the card bases. One of the things I like about Paper Pumpkin is, they normally have the same print on the front and back of the card bases. I can use the front and still cut the back down for a card layer, and make the card as originally planned just by adding a card base. 

Hope you like the card. Please hop along and check out the rest of the alternate projects. Leave a comment when you see something you like.

iCS Blog Hop: Farewell 2022-2024 In Colors


Hi crafty friends! It is almost time to say goodbye to the 2022-2024 In-Colors; Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party, Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet & Tahitian Tide, These colors are so bright and vibrant, I am definitely going to miss them. And, it makes me sad to think this could be the last time I use these colors. But....we have 5 new colors joining the Stampin' Up! family, so stay tuned for those!

I used 3 of the IN-colors on my card today. I do love how these colors coordinate and make my card so pop! I used In color card stock, tone on tone stamping and blended the colors onto the butterfly. I even added some of the In-color embellishments. All to say good - bye and give them one last use. 


Which was your favorite color from the 2022-2024 In-Color group? 

Let's see how the rest of the demo's chose to honor the outgoing colors. Hop with me over to Tricia's blog, if you will, and let's check out hers and all the other blogs. Share some love, by leaving some comments along the way. 

Until next time...
Happy craftin'!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: Memorable Meadows

 


Hi Crafty Friends! Welcome to the March Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! I love Paper Pumpkin! I love the surprise element each month. I love the simplicity of the kits, but the wow! And I love March, cuz we always get an anniversary gift! So it was double stamp set this month! Whoohoo!

I used the extra stamp set, and the blue tissue paper that comes in the kit for my card. I stamped on the tissue paper, and then I ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine using the polka dot embossing folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders (Online Exclusive). 

What do you think?



I did use one of the kit banners for my sentiment. I added a little gold foil paper and gold sequins to bring out the gold in the banner. The tissue is a different look, and doesn't really show as blue in the pictures, but it is in person. My goal is always to showcase the stamps, since they will be around long after the consumables are gone. 

Thanks for checking out my project. Hop along the list to the next blog and see what else we have done with this kit!


Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

PPP Blog Hop: Sweet Springtime

 


Hello crafty friends!! Want to see what other things you can do with the Paper Pumpkin kits? Get ready for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!

We love Paper Pumpkin and the kit projects they way they were intended, but sometimes it is fun to switch things up. I really like to show my customers and downline what can be done with the ink spot and stamps once the kit's consumable components are gone. 

Here is my card: 


This is a simple card, just focusing on the stamps. I did cut up a couple of the cards, but this could easily be swapped out for a fun Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

I hope you give it a try! 

You can follow along on the list or hop around, but don't miss any of them, or you will be sad!

Inspire Create Share It's a Love Thing

 


Hi friends! Happy Valentine's Day, and welcome to the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop! I hope you enjoy all the Love we have to share with you!

I didn't want to make a Valentine's Day card on the holiday itself. So I decided to make a card that can be used anytime. And what is better than to make a card for a friend! I have so many friends that I love!! 


This is perfect to tell one of them just how much they mean to me!


This card uses the Country Bouquet Stamp Set and the FREE Sale A Bration Designer Series Paper, Most Adored. It is 12" x12" and the colors are perfect for Valentine's Day, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and Gold! I love the plaids and the heart prints in the DSP! So very pretty!

Hope you have a little time to continue along the hop with me. Let's see what Deb has for us!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

This or That Stampin' 01/11/24

 Hi friends!!

This card is from yesterday's This or That Stampin'. I posted 2 stamp sets on Wednesday, for you all to vote on and guess what?! It was a tie! So, I decided to use both sets!!

I combined Jungle Pals with Heartfelt Hellos, both Sale-A-Bration sets, and threw in Planted Paradise, from the January-April Mini and this is what I got!

Sloths can hang from anywhere!


Want to see how I created the fun background paper (hint: using the new glass mat), or put the card together?
