Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...Sending Good Thoughts


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. 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 2022 Sending Good Thoughts kit.  This kit contains the supplies to create 9 cards and envelopes.


I don't often do this, I made a set of cards exactly as the kit instructs.  I think these are great cards and am very happy with the way they turned out.  The  only thing extra I added was an embellishment, Opal Rounds to a couple of the cards. Totally not necessary.


Here is what I made for the hop.  Whenever I think of a message in a bottle I think of a love letter.  I added a heart to the scroll inside of the bottle.  The heart was cut using the Hippo dies.  There is a die that cuts out 3 sizes of hearts and on this card I used 2 of the hearts.  I also stamped and fussy cut 2 little seahorses using the Sending Good Thoughts stamp set.   Along the bottom of the card I used an image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  The 2 starfish (one in Calypso Coral and the other Bermuda Bay) and the sand dollar are also from the Friends Are Like Seashells set and cut out using the Seaside Seashells dies.   The Friends Are Like Seashells set and the Seaside Seashells dies coordinate with this Paper Pumpkin kit so beautifully.


Inside of the card I stamped the sand and seaweed and added a fussy cut little seahorse.  

Now it is time to hop and see what Darla Roberts has created for you!
