Friends are Like Seashells

I have made this card using a few of the different colours that are found in the coordinating Designer Series Paper stack that accompanies this Suite.

The Suite is called Sand & Sea.  If you know me at all you will know that I am one who prefers the warm sunny breezes and the beach.  This Suite fulfilled all my wishes! 

There is a stamp set and dies that can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%.  There is also a 3D embossing folder that I used on my card, Designer Series paper, Pearlescent Specialty paper , Seaside Shell stickers and Opal Rounds embellishments. 

     For this card I chose to use the Flirty Flamingo piece of Desginer Series Paper which has So Saffron on the bottom.  The 2 shell stickers are the same colours and have a pearl finish to them.

Hello Baby - Kangaroo & Company

Today's card design was one that I used for my team swap last month.

I needed a baby card so I changed up the design on the front and the inside so that we could send it off to a co-worker of my husbands to welcome their new baby.  I love the versatility of this stamp set and bundle... it will stay in my craft room as it is also perfect for my grandson who lives in Australia!

I used a punched heart as a mask for the design on the stitched circle piece of cardstock.

Snail Mail

We have a collection that includes a stamp set, bundle, Designer Series Paper, and embellishments in our January to June Mini Catalogue that has been really appropriate during the last few months.

"Snail Mail".  It is true as our letters, packages, etc. are really taking their time in getting to their respective destinations.  Here is a card that I made with some of those items!

I did not use the stamp set, nor did I do any stamping!  I let the Designer Series paper do all the work!

I did however add "googly eyes" to the it!

PPP Blog Hop - Bouquet of Hope


 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
February Paper Pumpkin kit: "Bouquet of Hope".

These are the original projects:

• Kit contains enough supplies to create 9 cards—3 each of 3 designs—and coordinating envelopes. Kit includes card bases, decorative die-cut pieces, embellishments, 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: Basic Black, Bumblebee, Just Jade, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose
• Coordinates with the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper, an exclusive Sale-A-Bration item.

These are my alternate projects:

This 3 X 3 card was made using the Flower & Field and Oh So Ombre DSP. I stamped onto the Oh So Ombre DSP using the stamp set from the kit. The little hearts are made using the two sizes of leaf stamps from the kit!

This box was covered using the Flower & Field DSP and the sentiment is part of one on the stamps in the kit. I used the die cut flower and black sequin from the kit also.

This is my favourite, a card made using the bouquet stamp from the kit which I coloured with my Stampin' Blends. I used the new Neutrals 6 x 6 package of DSP (#155226) and the new 2020-2022 In Colour DSP pack (#155230)

The product supplies used for these projects will be listed below.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilites of Paper Pumpkin.
