A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Positively Picturesque



Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  Welcome to the July A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!  I'm so glad you are here.  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 wonderful "Positively Picturesque" kit.  I have to say, the stamp set included with this kit has to be one of my Paper Pumpkin favorites.  Lots of versatility with the variety of sentiments, plus, the dainty images make any creation picture perfect! I'm super excited to share my altered kit project with you...let's take a gander.




This month's kit came with the exact amount of supplies to create 2 cards each of 4 designs.  So, instead of stealing from the main supplies to create my altered project, I chose to focus on a new creation using the leftover washi tape and the stamp set with 14 images.  **squeal**  That's a lot of stamps for a monthly kit...stamp images that you can use over and over and over, again.

The coordinating colors in the kit are Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Sky.  The cardbase is Powder Pink with a Tranquil Tide matte layer that was embossed using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing folder.  The 1/2" Washi Tape covers a couple scrap pieces of 1/2" Whisper White cardstock.  Banner cut the ends and adorned with a Linen Thread bow.



The focal point consisting of the Lemon Lime Twist Pretty Label Punch topped with a Powder Pink scallop die cut.  Pop this onto a section of Delicate White Doily using Dimensionals and adhere to the card front.  Top it with the simple sentiment inked with Tranquil Tide Classic Ink.

To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the July Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have to share.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

How do I know if Paper Pumpkin is right for me?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of these questions, then Paper Pumpkin is the perfect solution for you!

  • I want a creative escape but I don’t have a lot of time.
  • I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to papercrafting, but I want to try it.
  • I love to create but I don’t always feel creative.
  • I need some fresh project ideas.
  • How can I craft when I don’t have all the “crafting stuff” I need?

Go ahead....give it a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month test drive and get in on all the FUN!!  If you end up not enjoying it (GASP!!), you can cancel your subscription.  But, I'm sure you will be very happy and excited to see what the next month will bring you.  Trust me!  I've been a subscriber for over 3 years and I get anxious to receive my little orange box in the mail near the middle of each month.  **squeal**
