Peaceful Poppies

My card is a very simple card using the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP as the focal point of the card.
All I added was a coordinating card base and some vellum shaped embellishments, a greeting, some ribbon and a coordinating sequin.

There are 2 stamp sets and 2 sets of dies available in this suite.
The Painted Poppies bundle has the Painted Poppies stamp set images and the Painted Label dies.
The Peaceful Moments bundle has the Peaceful Moments stamp set with sentiments and the Poppy Moments Dies.

I used a combination of these sets and dies to make this card. No ink pad stamping only using the Stampin write markers to colour the stamp in 2 colours! (Rich Razzleberry and Poppy Parade)

PPP Blog Hop I'll Bee Yours

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild.
On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the
January Paper Pumpkin kit: "I'll Bee Yours".

Paper Pumpkin was recently ranked 12 in the top 20 Best Art & Craft Subscription Box Review by My Subscription Addiction!

My subscription addiction is a website that reviews and provides information on all sorts of subscription boxes. It is kind of like a hub for people who really love subscription boxes.

These are the original projects:

The stamp set:

The coordinating colours for this kit are: Crushed Curry, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose. The supplies included will make 10 cards (3x3) with envelopes and 20 treat bags.
This project kit also coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack in the Mini Catalogue. Heart Punch Pack (item# 151292 @ $46.00)

These are my alternate projects:
I made a set of 4 cards with envelopes and a matching box. A great gift idea!

For the card box I used a mini pizza box and decorated the top using Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose DSP and a treat bag that I cut apart. I used the new Mint Macaron ribbon and the Heart Punch pack along with some sequin embellishments.

For the cards I used the card bases, hearts and tags from the kit. I added other cardstock pieces, ribbon, twine and a heart doily.


The supplies for my projects are listed below.

Beehive card

Finally I have had a chance to play with and create some cards using items from the new Mini catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  Being away from the beginning of December until mid January was wonderful...but my crafting has fall way behind.

At first I didn't know if I would be attracted to the Bee stamp set, but with the DSP in the Sale-A-Bration brochure I knew that I had to have it!

This is my creation:

I chose the black, gold, white combination with the addition of some Daffodil Delight.  You will see more cards using this set again soon!
