Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We will be sharing lots of ideas for using the December Paper Pumpkin kit, Something for Everything, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog. She had a great project!

My first project pairs Paper Pumpkin stamps with supplies already on my shelf. Our Notecards and Envelopes are a great basic supply which are ready to use since they are cut and scored.

Then I paired the just because stamp with snowflakes and stamen stamps from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in the annual catalog.

Last, I cut one of the card bases included in the kit and attached the pieces to a Garden Green card base. It’s an unusual design but appropriate for the “hey friend, love you lots” sentiment included on the card.

Sale-a-bration 2019 Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Anastasia Radloff’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to make it easy on myself and use the fabulous Botanical Butterfly designer series paper as the focal point on the hand stamped greeting card. There are lots of already colored butterflies in large and medium sizes on this sheet. Just use a Stampin’ Up! paper snips to cut around the wings and voila! Instant beauty!

Stamp a flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set and “a little note” from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in balmy blue ink. Use a sponge dauber to highlight the berries in grapefruit grove ink. Change out the inks and cardstock layers to match the colors of the butterfly for cheerful cards.

After I created this post, I thought the card could use a few extra touches. So I swabbed Wink of Stella on the butterfly and embossed the highland heather layer using the Dot to Dot embossing folder.

All the supplies used…plus the Wink of Stella and the Dot to Dot embossing folder. The Faceted Dots name in English was cut off when I sized the photo. Now you know how to say it in a few other languages too:)

ICS Blog Hop Christmas Cards Galore

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase Christmas Cards Galore. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I decided to create custom designer series paper using the Spirited Snowmen stamp set. I first stamped the skating snow peep in pacific point in the center of an 8.5×11 whisper white cardstock. Additional images were stamped in “triangles” around the center image.

Next, “winter cheer” was stamped in blackberry bliss filling in the open spaces.

Last, the snowflakes were stamped in pacific point ink to fill in…

a fun little trio of images and colors…

The sheet was cut to 4×5 inches. Then the blackberry bliss ink pad was applied directly to the edges to give an illusion of another layer. I wanted the Swirls and Curls embossing on the balmy blue card base to show through a little so did not want to add another paper layer. Decorated the envelope back too!

Color the carrot nose with the pumpkin pie Stampin’ Write marker and add a frosted epoxy dew drop embellishment for the hat tassle….

My design was inspired from a custom sheet that my sister Tricia created. The stamp set took 3 trips up the interstate before she completed the sheet. She plans to use the sheet to create a scrapbook page.
