A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Broadway Star

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is near the end of June and we are here for another fun and exciting 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 June monthly kit named "Broadway Stars".  I had a ton of fun creating my altered kit projects and I can't wait to show them off to you...let's go take a peek!


This months kit is designed for any sort of celebration...birthday, congratulations, etc.  PLUS, it is designed to coordinate with the Broadway Bound Suite...products can be found in the Annual catalog (page 68-69).  Super exciting!!


For my creation, I did a combination of products from the paper pumpkin kit and the Boradway Bound Suite (Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper and cardstock pack and the Broadway Lights Framelits Dies).


I took one of the cardbases from the kit and cut the front base to fit the Basic Black cardbase front.  I used the remain paper pumpkin cardbase to add a strip to the inside bottom.


The die cut "Hooray" is a sticker, but I wanted it to pop, so I added dimensionals and popped it up on a Lovely Lipstick Broadway die cut.  The Black and Gold candles paper is from the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series paper...I thought it really brought all of the gold elements together.


The gold numbers (25) were hand cut with Paper Snips from one of the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper patterns.  I popped it up on one of the cake die cuts that came with the Broadway Star kit...then, popped that up with dimensionals to put in place on the inside.


It has been a long time since I've created a Pop-up card, and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  This will be perfect for our daughter...bold, bright, and perfect for her to celebrate a quarter of a century.  :)



Upcycled Gift Jar

It gets more and more difficult to buy for my daughters as they are at the age that they buy for themselves...what they want and when they want it.  HA!!  So, I'm always on the hunt for a new way to present them with moolah as a present!  Teehehe

Gotta love old spice jars that have a bit of character  :)  I'm really pleased with how these projects came together...super cute and FUN!
