PPP Blog Hop - Here's To You


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 March Paper Pumpkin kit: "Here's To You".

These are the original projects:


Kit contains enough supplies to create 8 cards—4 each of 2 designs—and coordinating envelopes. The kit’s contents include printed card bases, die-cut paper pieces, embellishments, adhesive, and more!
  • 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: Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray
  • Includes four free stencils and a stamping sponge!

  • Here are my alternate projects:
  • My first 2 cards are made using my blending brushes and the colours in this kit.  The first card has a blended background.
  • Card 1

  • Card 2
  • For this card I used the negative from the punched out trees as a stencil and used my blending brushes to colour the trees.  The cloud stencil was used with white embossing paste.
  • My second 2 cards are made using the Envelope liner papers as the focal points on the cards.

                                                                          Card 3

                                                                            Card 4

  • The supplies used for my alternate cards will be listed at the bottom.
