PPP Blog Hop - Beary Comforting


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
December Paper Pumpkin kit: "Beary Comforting".

These are the original projects:

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 12 cards and coordinating envelopes.
  • Card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" (11.4 x 14.6 cm)
  • Coordinating colors: Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White

Here is my alternate project:

I decided to make my card project with a Panda Bear.  I stamped the bear image from the Paper Pumpkin kit with Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White and coloured it with my Stampin' Blends to resemble a Panda Bear.  The frame around the White piece is the negative from the punched out piece of the original bear card!  The birthday package is from the kit as is the circular label.  I used a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, available January 5th, for my sentiment.  For the additional products that I used for this card (other than the kit supplies) please see below.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilites of Paper Pumpkin.
Now hop over to Deb where you will find another great Paper Pumpkin alternate project idea!
