A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — All The Little Things Alternate Idea

APPT Hop Header-Image

Hello stamping friends!  Welcome to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing (APPT) blog hop group!  Our creative 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 (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects.  The creative fun should never stop with just the designs that come in each box! *wink-wink*




This month's blog hop is working with the All The Little Things (April 2023) Paper Pumpkin kit.  It contains the supplies to make nine lovely cards with elegant cherry blossom designs, bright colors, and iridescent foil.  Once the supplies are used up to create those cards, I can now focus on creating a lovely card using extra supplies within the kit and additional supplies and tools from my own stash.

The only source of designer patterned paper to use for my card came from the beautiful envelopes.  There were two different patterns...one from the envelope flap and the other from the main part of the envelope.  I cut to size and trimmed the bigger piece with a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock and adhered it all to the Basic White Thick card base.

One of the original card designs had set of flowers that were stacked on each other to give some dimension, so I stole it to use as my focal image.  I popped it up on a Countryside Corners Die cut that was embossed with the Raindrops Embossing Folder.  Then adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment was inked with Shaded Spruce and stamped onto the smallest die from the Countryside Corners Die set.  I added a bit of the Calpso Coral bakers twine that came with the kit to the back of the sentiment layer, then added to the card front with Dimensionals.

I sprinkled several of the self-adhesive jewels that were leftover in the kit for a bit of bling!  At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next A Paper Pumpkin Thing designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, beautiful 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 any of the wonderful inspiration!
