PPP Blog Hop - The Adventure Begins

 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 July Paper Pumpkin kit "The Adventure Begins".

These are the original projects:

Here are the kit details:

  • Contains enough supplies to create twelve cards and coordinating envelopes.
  • Card size: 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” (10.8 x 14cm)
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2” x 5-3/4” (11.4 x 14.6 cm)
  • Comes with a Stampin’ Spot plus an exclusive Stamp Set.
  • Includes inspirational sentiments and adventure-themed imagery featuring these nature-inspired coordinating colours: Basic Black, Basic White, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Night of Navy.

Here are my alternate projects:

Card 1

Card 2
This card uses the negative that was used in the second card of the kit. I stamped the trees on Basic white using the placement from the negative. Then I stamped 3 more and fussy cut them out. I used a blending brush and some Balmy Blue for the sky!

The supplies that I used (other than the kit supplies) are listed below.
