Thank You - Earthen Elegance

I had purchased the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper when we had the DSP sale and have used it for another project.  Recently I decided to get the Earthen Textures bundle as I have seen some really pretty cards, etc. made with it.  Here is one of my first projects.

I loved using the amazing Designer Series Paper to cut out my it the look of pottery!

PPP Blog Hop - Meaningful Flowers


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 August Paper Pumpkin kit "Meaningful Flowers".

These are the original projects:

Here are my alternate projects:

Card 1

For this card I used the stamp set to stamp the flower stem image on Basic White cardstock twice. I coloured it with the Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blends and added the centres with a Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker. The stems and leaves were coloured with a Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker. I fussy cut them out and added them to my doily. The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

Card 2

For this card I used mainly the kit supplies. I stamped a large and small Lily flower from the bonus stamp set onto Basic White using Melon Mambo ink. I coloured in the rest of the flowers with my Bubble Bath Stampin' Blends. The flower centres were coloured using the Crushed Curry Stampin' Write marker. I fussy cut them out and added them onto the card front (with vellum piece attached) with dimensionals. I added a piece of Bubble Bath ribbon at the top with a sliding knot.

The supply lists can be found near the bottom of my post.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop through all the great Paper Pumpkin alternate project ideas.
