Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop...Grown With Kindness


Are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber?  If you are, then you are in for a treat and if you aren't a subscriber maybe it is time to think about subscribing.  Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop!  You will be able to blog hop and see lots of different ideas on ways to us the Grown with Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit for February.


I started with a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Fresh Fig card stock scored at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4".  I attached one of the photo panels to one side of the card base.  I stamped and colored the fun tea cup and succulent image using a mix of Stampin' Write markers (Fresh Fig) and Stampin' Blends (Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Smoky Slate).  I fussy cut the image but this is not necessary and attached it to Whisper White circle and a Fresh Fig scalloped circle.  Both of the circles were cut using the Layering Circle framelits.  


I used a small strip of Tear and Tape Adhesive to attach the circle to the edge of the card front.  The succulent panel tucks into the circle to keep the card closed.  


Here is another gorgeous picture of succulents that is included in the Paper Pumpkin kit.  I attached the panel to a 5-1/4" x 8" piece of  Mint Macaron card stock scored at 2", 4".   I only applied adhesive to the first 2" x  5-1/4" panel.  The next picture will show you the reason i did this.


It is an easel card.  The panel rests on a label (included in the kit) that is attached using dimensionals, also provided in the kit. I stamped the sentiment, can do incredible things on the label with Fresh Fig ink which is also included in the kit.  Don't you love the sentiment?  I know this stamp will get used a lot.


Hope you liked this alternate idea on how to use the products in the Grown with Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you are curious about Paper Pumpkin and are not currently working with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator feel free to contact me or check out this link.
