PPP Blog Hop - Celebrating in Colour


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 May Paper Pumpkin kit "Celebrating In Colour".

These are the original projects:

These are my 2 alternate card projects.

For my first project I used the kit stamp set and stamped the word "HAPPY" in each of the New In Colours. I coloured them with the In Colour Stampin' Blends. Added a greeting from the kit stamp set and narrow strips of In Colour cardstock plus a piece of Tahitian Tide In Colour DSP!

For my second project I used 2 of the negatives that were punched out for the original cards. I added a strip of each of the New In Colours to the back of the larger negative and added some gold splatter and the kit greeting using Gold embossing powder.

The additional supplies used for my alternate cards will be listed below.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to my friend Deb's blog where you will find another great Paper Pumpkin alternate project idea.
