Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the May Paper Pumpkin kit, Hugs from Shelli, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Lisa Kmiec’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to use the stamps included in the kit to create an ombre look.

There are only a few feather die cuts included in the kit. So use the feather stamp and a blender pen to create custom, colored feathers.

Screen Shot 2019-05-02 at 8.01.01 AM

Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s board chair and cofounder, has designed her very own special edition Paper Pumpkin kit—and we think you are going to fall in love with it! It has a unique box design and an elegant, vintage look and feel which reflects Shelli’s personal papercrafting style. She loves it and so will you!

Shelli created a short video with a sneak peek at what’s inside. Take a look!

In addition to the sneak peeks in the video, they have revealed that the kit includes  crafting materials to create 12 cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs), 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes, an exclusive photopolymer stamp set and and a Classic Stampin’ Spot. The colors used in the designs are Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla. The card reveal is good news for those that have been asking for kits that only contain cards!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Poppin’ Birthday

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the March Paper Pumpkin kit, Sentimental Rose, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog. She had a great project!

What to do with the stamps after the original kits contents are depleted? This month, I carefully opened the box and slipped only the stamp set out. I did not want my designing mojo to be influenced by the suggested designs included with the kit.

I started plucking pieces from my sniblets pile, added the Layered Leaves embossing folder to the crumb cake card base, daubed on Wink of Stella and crumpled up the fussy cut rose because it was just too flat looking (and that is just the kind of day I am having, a good busy but I am not going to get it all done before the clock strikes midnight!).

Uncrumple the rose and voila!, came up with this idea…

Our co-founder, Shelli Gardner, worked with designers to create the May Paper Pumpkin kit. It promises to be vintage inspired since that is Shelli’s style.

I had great table mates that worked together to open the sealed products, adhere stamps to blocks, pass the supplies to the right and clean and put away stamps. Great team work! Sadly, I did not get a photo with my table mates since we were kept busy from the 9am start time to just after 5pm. We even had make n take time over lunch.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Poppin’ Birthday

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the March Paper Pumpkin kit, Poppin’ Birthday, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Charmane Hopkins’ blog. She had a great project!

Follow the photos below to see what I created. I started with the bonus numbers stamps by peeling back the protective plastic sheet. I inked 1-9 with Granny Apple Green ink. You can see the bottom row of stamps are uninked.

I centered the inked stamps on Granny Apple Green cardstock and pressed on the protective plastic sheet with my fingers to transfer the ink from the stamps to the paper.

3 26 19bloghop2-001

Voila! A fun background!

3 26 19bloghop5-001

Add the streamers stamp along the edges to complete the background stamping. Use the included poppy parade ink spot to stamp the party hats around the gray striped paper that was cut from the kit contents.

3 26 19bloghop3-001

Add the sentiment on the die cut that was included in the kit. Decorate with the party hat and bow die cuts that were included in the kit.

Stampin’ Up! produces a fast time motion Youtube video to show kit assembly as intended for the visual learners out there, including me! Watch the video here:
