A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- February 2018 Wildflower Wishes

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It's March 1st and it's time for another series of 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 February monthly kit named Wildflower Wishes.  Let's go take a peek at what I created for you.


This month's hop features Spring and blooming flowers...Wildflower Wishes.  Now, if only my wish for Spring to arrive and stay for awhile would come true because I'm tired of the bitter cold weather.  How about you?  I really like that the stamp set includes several sentiments that can be paired up...large and bold with a smaller, fancy cursive font.  Check out the envelopes that are printed with a floral liner....sooo pretty!



I decided to stamp the "Celebrate" sentiment with VersaMark and then clear emboss onto one of the patterned paper choices.



It's been a while since I had created a shaker card. The large Decorative Label panel is a sticker, so it made it super easy to cut a Window Sheet strip and stick to the back without having to add my own adhesive.



This kit featured Garden Green and Sahara Sand, but my creation needed a 3rd color, so I added in a strip of Pool Party for the backing of the shaker portion.  The Metallic Sequins are the perfect touch for a little glam and more color.  The rest of the components came with the kit.




Coordinating Triangle Chocolate Treat Holder

This little holder is using a strip cut from one of the patterns papers with the kit.  I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to create the little Garden Green flap (matches the large sentiment stickers in the kit...**squeal**)!!  I inked up the sentiment with Garden Green and clear heat embossed onto a strip of Pool Party.  You can't see them, but there are 2 wonderful chocolates wrapped in green foil.  Perfect for this project and so stinkin' adorable!




To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the February Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.
