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 August 2022 Sweet Sunflowers kit.  This kit contains the supplies to create 9 cards with beautifully decorated envelopes. 

The cards are beautiful and I made a set following the directions provided in the kit.  I like to do this to get a feel for the kit and all the elements.

SweetSunflowersPaperPumpkin-originial

I think the cards are stunning.  I would be happy to make more of the original designs but this is a Paper Pumpkin alternatives blog hop so I had to think of another idea to share with you.  

SweetSunflowers-PaperPumpkin-giftcard

The first thing I did was to cut some of the card bases in half.  The card bases have designs on the front and the back and  this gave me more pieces to work with.  The front piece measures 4" x 4-1/4" and scored at 3/8", 3/4" and 1-1/8".  This creates the spine of this gift card holder book.  I stamped the sunflower and followed the tip to stamp it twice and love how it looks.  I also used the Evening Evergreen 3/8" Windowpane Check Ribbon to close the book.

SweetSunflowers-PaperPumpkin-gift card open

I used the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies  to cut out this gift card holder.  The paper  used for the pocket is the back half of a card base.  The pocket is decorated with a few bees and one of the labels.  I also added some Linen Thread.  

SweetSunflowers-PaperPumpkin-giftcardopen2

The second pocket was glued on to the back cover which is half of a card base.  The back piece measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" scored at 2-3/4".  You could add more pockets if you were giving more gift cards.  You would need to have a longer card front and add additional score lines.

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.

SendingGoodThoughts-kit

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.

SendingGoodThoughts-Alt1

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.

SendingGoodThoughts-Alt1-side

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

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 June 2022 Pick of the Crop kit.  This kit contains the supplies to create 9 cards and a muslin card sized tote.  The tote is perfectly sized to hold a gift of cards.  

PaperPumpkin-PickoftheCrop-soapbox

I needed to package a little gift and thought this card base would make a cute box.   To decorate the box I also used 2 sprigs of lavender, a tag and twine from the kit.  I used a  few Iridescent Rhinestones that are not part of the kit and a Night of Navy ink pad.  

PaperPumpkin-PickoftheCrop-pattern

  • Starting at the fold along the printed card front, score at 1" and 3" and then trim of 1/4" from the front edge
  • Starting at the fold along the solid blue back of the card, score at 2" and 2-1/2".  Cut on the 2-1/2" score line.
  • Along the bottom edge of the card, score at 1".
  • From the bottom edge of the card cut on the score line up to the 1" score line. 
  • Cut off the 1/2" tab.

Here's what I packaged in the box...lavender soap!  Pretty perfect huh?

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Celebrating In Colors

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_n

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 May 2022 Celebrating In Colors kit.

This kit contains supplies to create 10 cards.  In this kit you get 2 of each of the 5 cards (one for each of the new In Colors).  Love ombre?  You are going to love this kit.  

CelebratingInColor-PaperPumpkin

I chose to use the Starry Sky components for my card.  I trimmed about 1/2" off the top of the ombre layer.  I wrapped some gold cord from the Simply Elegant Trim around the ombre layer before attaching it to the card base.  I attached a mini glue dot to the back of the gold trim knot to secure it in place.  I added the "You" tag and stamped the Just For sentiment on it in Basic Gray ink (love that even a mini ink spot is provided in the Paper Pumpkin kit).  

CelebratingInColor-PaperPumpkin-popup

Surprise!  I attached the Best Wishes to a simple pop up mechanism.  I also colored in the letters using the Starry Sky and Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends.  You could also use the Stampin' Write markers or a Blender Pen.  I thought the inside needed more color so I took apart one of the coordinating envelopes, yes you get envelopes too and adhered it.  Isn't it a fabulous backdrop for the gold foiled sentiment?  A few more dots this time in Parakeet Party and my card was done.

But wait, are you wondering how the simple pop up mechanism was made?

PopUpSimple-PPP

Remember I told you I cut off about 1/2" from the ombre layer?  I cut that piece to a 3-1/2" piece and scored it at 3/4", 1-1/2", 2-1/4", and 3".  I joined it to create a square.  Easy right?

SimplePopUp-PPP-fold

This piece is attached to the fold in the card.  Once you have the pop up attached to the card base, you can attach the sentiment.  This is a very simple and yet effective way to make a pop up.  There are other ways but this one was perfect since I could use the 1/2" strip I cut off.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...Jolly Gingerbread

PaperPumpkinbloghop

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 November Paper Pumpkin kit: Jolly Gingerbread.

PaperPump-nov

The Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin kit includes everything you need to create 15 gift card holders and envelopes.  From the stamp set to the cutest little candy stickers, everything is there!  For my project I wanted to add a little sweet treat and yes, there is a stamp that says that too!  The 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" Acetate Card Boxes was the  perfect package to house a little bit of chocolate.  

I dismantled one of the envelopes and found the cute striped paper.  I cut the striped portion  into 1" strips and joined them together to form the band around the box.   I followed the directions and stamped the tag and sentiment rectangle. Instead of adhering  the house portion of the card, I cut the tab away to make it more of a card.

PaperPump-Nov20-in

I stamped the inside of the card using Calypso Coral ink and attached the gift card to the inside of the card with a glue dot.  The little house is attached to the striped paper with some glue dots and further secured in place with some Calypso Coral ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon pack.  The sentiment panel secured down with dimensionals also holds the ribbon in place.  

What do you think?  Wouldn't this be a fun little gift for the chocolate and coffee lover on your list.  I plan to make more of these so I am glad that there are 15 of these cute cards in the kit!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...World's Greatest

PaperPumpkinbloghop

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up 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 August's Paper Pumpkin kit: World's Greatest.

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-ease;

I love a pretty plaid and decided to cut one of the card bases to 2 pieces measuring 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  Why?  This gave me more plaid paper to work with. I am also a fan of stripes and when I saw the medal ribbon holder stamp I knew I had to use it.  My dilemma was I also wanted to use the trophy. So,  I stamped the striped medal holder twice, cut out the ribbon part only, and adhered it to the card front.  The trophy base fit perfectly and covered up the gap between the 2 ribbons.  The trophy was attached to the card front using dimensionals (also included in the kit). I tucked in a couple of the vellum leaf die cuts behind the trophy to act as a frame.  I attached the vellum with tiny dots of glue.  The glue is behind the trophy and  hidden by the star sequins,

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-easelfront

To create the stopper for the easel I cut  a tail at the end of the gold banner piece and attached it to the inside of the card with dimensionals.  On the circle I stamped in Bumblebee ink the #1 and friend in Pacific Point ink.  

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-easelopenside

Since I had another plaid layer I decided to make another card.

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-pin

The ruffled ribbon stamp is perfect for making award ribbons.  I thought about what kind of awards I give out and came up with one that would be fun to send or give out at my next team meeting.  I made a small shaker by creating a frame from one of  the stitched rectangles designs in the kit.  I used a Stitched Rectangle die and cut out a window.  I used a clear envelope and put some stars in it and trimmed the envelope to fit behind the frame.  I closed up any open edges to prevent star leakage and attached it to the back of the frame.  I punched 2 holes near the top edge of the frame.  This is where the pin is attached to the card.  Place dimensionals around the edge of the frame except near where you punched the holes.  

ASID-PPPWorldsGreatest-pin2

The sentiment is from a stamp set available to demonstrators called Stamping Your Way to the Top.  I inked the sentiment in Bumblebee ink.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White "demonstrator" was inked in Pacific Point ink and punched out using the Classic Label punch.  The ends were trimmed and placed over the Bumblebee "demonstrator" using dimensionals.   The other banner sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  

This would work fabulously using the World Greatest stamp set.  You could have a ribbon for World's Greatest friend, Teacher or #1 Friend.  

For this variation you will need:

  • stamp set (I used Stamping Your Way to the Top)
  • Bumblebee Ink Pad
  • Whisper White CS scrap
  • Stitched Rectangle dies
  • Clear Envelope
  • Classic Label punch
  • pin back

PPP Blog Hop..A Kit In Color

PaperPumpkinbloghop

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 this May 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit: A Kit In Color.

This month's kit features  4 of the 2020-22 In Colors: Bumblebee, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, & Misty Moonlight and the Stampin' Spot was Misty Moonlight!  Highly anticipated and it didn't disappoint!  I love the bright happy colors of this kit and the stamp set will be used long after I have made all the cards.  

ASID-May20PP-1

I used the Purple Posy note card and scored it 1-1/8", 2-1/4", (card is already scored at 3-1/2") and 5-1/4".   This card  was designed to fit in the note card envelope as long as the height of the card is not taller than 3-1/2".  

The striped paper is from one of the envelopes (note card) and cut at 7/8" x 5",  1" x 5", & 1-1/2" x 5".  

The first step uses the Magenta Madness twine,  the label from the kit stamped with the sentiment in Misty Moonlight, and the fun Just Jade puffy sticker.

The second step uses the medium size cloud and the vellum banner cut into a cloud shape, using the medium size cloud as a template.

The third step uses the large cloud, more Just Jade puffy stickers, the rainbow cut out from a banner, and the sentiment stamped in Misty Moonlight and fussy cut.

ASID-May20PP-1side

Such a fun kit to work with and the colors will bring a smile to your face.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...No Matter the Weather

PaperPumpkinbloghop

Welcome to the Paper  Pumpkin Pop Up 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 March Paper Pumpkin kit: No Matter the Weather.

This kit has got to be one of the best Paper Pumpkin kits ever!  It is amazing how perfect the stamp set is for what we are going through in the world right now.  In addition the die cuts are just so cute! To make things even better there's a bonus stamp set included that is full of fabulous images including a pair of flowery boots that I would love to wear.  

ASID-PPMarch20

I have been wanting to make a Quarter Sheet Pop Up card.  On this card I used the die cuts and sentiment from the kit and added the grass/cattails using the Friendly Silhouettes dies.  There is a lovely grass image in the bonus stamp set but I was being a bit lazy and didn't want to fussy cut.  This grass/cattail die from the Friendly Silhouette dies is one I am very fond of.

Here are the details on how I made this card.

  • Adhere 2 of the same note card together so that you have a larger background design.
  • Trim the note cards to equal 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" with the fold (seam where you joined the 2 cards) in the center (2-3/4")
  • 1-1/4" x 4-1/2" Balmy Blue strip, score at 1/2", 2-1/4", 4"  decorate using the die cuts.  Center the 2-1/4" score line with the center fold of the card.  Attach the tabs to the card base. 
  • 1/2" x 6-1/2" Shaded Spruce strip, score 1/2" at both ends.  
  • 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" Shaded Spruce strip cut using the Friendly Silhouettes grass/cattail image.  Adhere the grass/cattails to the back of the 1/2" x 6-1/2" strip and inside of the 1/2" score lines.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink (included in kit) and attach the heart die cut.  Add glitter to heart if desired.  Attach it to the front of the 1/2" x 6-1/2" strip.  Adhere the strip (1/2" tabs) to the front of the card.

 

ASID-PPMarch20-top

This card lays flat to mail (since it is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" it does not need to be folded and fits in an A-2 envelope).  The card stands up nicely.  The 2 strips bow out creating a nice pop up effect.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...Something for Everything

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 this December  Paper Pumpkin kit: Something for Everything
 
ASID-PPPhopJan20
I used primarily what was provided in the Paper Pumpkin kit except for the Stitched Shapes dies, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce card stock..  I wanted a wreath shape so I used the largest stitched circle die (#4) with the #2 (#1 being the smallest stitched circle die) centered in the middle and cut a 3-1/2" square piece of Old Olive card stock.  Behind the wreath I put a Shaded Spruce circle I cut using the #3 stitched Shape circle die.
 
I used 1 of the flower and berry gold foil stickers, 1 large flower, 3 small flowers, 5 of the leaves, and one of the long labels.  The stamp set in this kit is a great basic.  It has 13 sentiments that cover a wide array of occasions.  Definitely a keeper and one that will be used a lot.
 
This card is simple but it has a little secret.
ASID-PPPhopJan20-side
It is also a gift card holder!  This is one of the easiest gift card holders you can make.  I measured 3-1/2"  from the top of the card and cut a slit from the fold to the front edge.  I glued down the bottom and front edge of the card, creating a pocket to insert a gift card.
ASID-PPPhopJan20-open
I stamped the sentiment and attached the remaining parts of the gold foil sticker and one more flower to the inside.  I love it that the gift card coordinates so well with the colors of the card and flower stickers.

I know it seems impossible but the Paper Pumpkin kits just seem to get better every month!  I think this kit is amazing and the projects are pretty much perfect as they are but since this an alternative ideas blog hop I had to change things up just a little bit.  I made the tags pretty much as instructed with just some minor changes like placement of the leaves and sequins and adding ribbon bows instead of the silver cording.  The biggest change is I mounted the tags on an easel so instead of tags on a package it is a piece of home decor.  I think this is going to look cute on the mantel.

AstheInkDries-PPP1119side

The easel was purchased at one of the big craft stores and come 3 to a pack, already painted and with an easel back.  They were  inexpensive and I like to have them on hand to make quick home decor items and gifts.

The only thing I added that wasn't included in the November Paper Pumpkin kit was the "Merry Christmas".  This was cut out of Poppy Parade cardstock using the Merry Christmas dies.   If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber of mine and want to recreate this project,  email me and I will cut the sentiment out and send it to you.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop...On My Mind

PaperPumpkinbloghop

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  We all are fans of the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit and have joined together to share ideas on alternate ways to use the July 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit, On My Mind.  

This month's kit was a special one.  There were supplies to make 9 cards , 3 each of 3 designs with coordinating envelopes.  The 3 different designs coordinated with 3 different suites in the Stampin' Up!® Annual catalog.  The 3 suites: Woven Threads, Garden Lane and Come Sail Away.  

PPPBH-OnMyMind

I have the Sailing Home bundle and added a few extra elements for my card.   I stamped and cut the anchor in Pear Pizzazz and the seaweed in both Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.   The rest of the elements were included in the kit.  

AstheInkDries-PPPBH-OnMyMindside

Easel cards are easy and fun to make.  I think this is the first time I have added a long message strip.  I like that when the card is closed you cannot tell that the strip will be "floating".

Well, it is time to head over to see what the talented  Darla Watson has created for you!
