The supplies used plus one white pompom to stand in a for golf ball from the Assorted Pompoms pack and patterned paper from the Country Club package…paper snip blades were run along the garden green mat to give extra interest. I got a little crazy with the number of Stampin’ Write markers I used. I got ’em, may as well use ’em. I love how saturated the colors are when using these markers.

PPP Blog Hop Lovely Day

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

I tend to design alternate projects using just the stamps from the kit while plucking supplies from my stash. Crumb cake cardstock is a staple and coordinates beautifully with a photographic flower image from the Pressed Petals designer series paper package.

Use a few markers and the 2 1/4 inch circle punch to create a quick and easy birthday card.

Thank you for joining us as we share the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to Tricia’s blog to see what she designed.
