PPX Crew Blog Hop — January Alternate Paper Pumpkin Kisses & Hugs Shaker Heart Card


Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

This month's blog hop features the love-filled Kisses & Hugs (January 2022) kit.  Not very often do I think to use up any of the leftover negative pieces from punched images, they usually get tossed in the recycle bin, but this time the scraps were speaking quite clearly to me.  After all of the bi-fold heart cards were made, there were still goodies left behind to create a fun shaker card!

The background is the largest Scalloped Contour Die cut from Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  I threaded the Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon through the loops, tied into a bow and added to the Crumb Cake cardbase with Liquid Glue.

There was no way I was tossing the negative left behind from the Blushing Bride heart frame!  I adhered a piece of Vellum to the back of the leftover heart and hand cut it out with Paper Snips.  This way I only had to cut the heart once versus twice.  I arranged the two stamp images — X and O — on a clear block to ink with Versa Mark and heat emboss with Gold.  To create the shaker component, I traced the Vellum framed heart onto Basic White cardstock and hand cut with Snips.  The From My Heart Faceted Gems are a perfect color match to the rest of the card — right down to the splash of Gold — and make a good shake-shake-shake noise that will be fun for the recipient to enjoy.

Finish the card with the word sentiments inked with Real Red onto a strip of Basic White, snipped to size and added to the card front with Stampin' dimensionals.

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
