A Little Smile for the PPP Blog Hop

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog HopS

It’s time for the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile, and it everything you need for 16 gift cards & envelopes and a box to keep them in. I’ve used the kit components to create a full size card and a tag for a treat bag. 

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great alternate projects this group has made using this month’s A Little Smile kit!

Here’s what I made:

I’m out of town at a craft retreat and don’t have my lightbox, so my photos look different than usual.

The card: I tried to create a reflection of mountains and sky. It isn’t a perfect mirrored image, but I think you get the idea.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

The treat bag: I made a simple tag that matched the card, and attached it using a copper library clip from the Tags & More Accessory Kit. A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Old Olive CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

  • one card front from the kit cut to 2″ x 2-1/4″

  • sand dollars in Coastal Cabana ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • starfish in Crumb Cake ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • coral in Old Olive ink onto the front of the card base, around the edges
  • sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto one of the trimmed card fronts
  • mirrored sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto the other trimmed card front
  • sentiment in Old Olive ink onto the smallest trimmed card front

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • two larger trimmed card fronts glued onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • Copper Trim pulled apart in a few places, then glued along the seam where the two trimmed card fronts meet
  • Old Olive CS layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the bag:

  • sentiment glitter sand dollar die cut glued onto the smallest trimmed card front, above the sentiment

  • 6″ strip inserted into the box side to side

Grown With Kindness for APPT Blog Hop

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - alternate projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kits

S

It’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for February! This month’s kit is called Grown with Kindness and it features 9 sweet cards with photographic images of succulent plants. 

S

Here’s the Grown With Kindness kit:

The kit makes 9 cards:Paper Pumpkin February 2019 kit, Grown with Kindness, makes 9 cards, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

I used a card base and a couple of photographic pieces from the kit along with a few other Stampin’ Up! products for my alternate projects: a card and a gift/treat box. I can’t wait to see what all the talented stampers on the blog hop have come up with for their alternate projects. Be sure to hop all the way around, because you won’t want to miss any of them.

S

Here’s what I made:

The ribbon is a bit loose and saggy on the card, probably because it got manhandled too much before making its way upstairs for the photos. And the ribbon on the box is a little crooked. I guess I was too tired to notice when I took the photos. Just be mindful of the ribbon when you make yours.

Be Mine Happy Anniversary Card

If you got the January “Be Mine” Paper Pumpkin kit, you know you got a whole lot of extra die cut pieces. I used some of them for my swap cards for the February Candy Hearts team meeting. The theme for the swap was wedding or anniversary, and I thought the pair of chameleons would be perfect for a fun and whimsical anniversary card. The Dot to Dot embossing folder added to the whimsy by creating a background full of “bubbles.” I chose the colors based on the kit.

S

Here’s what I made:
