A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Sprinkled With Love


Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  Weeerrrre Baaaaack!  Yep!  It's May and we're having a Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!  A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the monthly kit.  This month's hop features the fun and puny "Sprinkled With Love" kit.  We're talking Donuts!  Lots of donuts! I didn't stray too far from the original design, so we could say that I added a WOW factor.  Let's take a peek.



Outside of the precut flowers and banners, everything else was circular shaped.  Circle card bases...some with holes in the center, some not, and circles layers with holes.  I believe this kit is in recognition of National Donut Day coming up June 2nd.  Not sure, but it is super fun and cute.

I chose one of the circular card bases without a hole in the center and showcasing a spray of gold embossing. Using most of the supplies that came in the kit, I couldn't help but add a few more circular accessories to keep the whole arrangement in unison.  The Delicate White Doilies was the perfect size that allowed for a hint of the gold spray to still shine through.  I hadn't played with Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in a while, so I thought it would be fun to add one of the new 2017-2019 In Colors...Fresh Fig.  Really love that new color! I mean *really* LUV that color!  The kit came with a spool of Thick Gold Thread which is wonderful to work with...different than any of the Baker's Twine Stampin' Up! has offered.



This month's kit came with an 11-piece stamp set.  Some images reference pun-type sentiments and others were more generic accent images and sentiments. I love that the kit came with a selection of all white or the color-matched baby blue banners, because the white was just too stark for this project.  The same goes for the die-cut flowers.  One side White, the other is Vanilla.  So, can you guess which flower color I chose?  Yep!  the Vanilla.  To add a little contrast color, die cut some Wild Wasabi leaves using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and set into place around the Soft Suede sentiment. There are these really cool iridescent dots that I'm sure are for sprinkling on the donuts, but I thought they were perfect to finish off the flowers.  WOW!!
