My Paper Pumpkin

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Winter Gifts Holiday Banner

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit (Winter Gifts) is filled with supplies to create 20 oversized gift tags (5 each of 4 different designs.  And, boy, are they super cute!


Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using when creating my alternate project to share with you.  With the exception of not adding the ribbon tails to each tag, I followed the instructions to create the tags. 

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagBanner-Lori-DSC00684

To make them into a banner, I popped each tag up on an Early Espresso Nested Stitched die.  I used the largest die in the set.  I loved the designed tags in the kit that I thought it would be super easy to create this adorable banner that can be hung from an office door, adorning the front of a desk, or added to any wall as festive decoration.

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagsBanner-MerryXmas-Lori-DSC00685

When coordinating home decor, it is a pretty strong rule that you really need the arrangement done up with an odd number.  Since there were only 4 different tag designs, I had to come up with a 5th banner pennant.  So, I 'borrowed' the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and stamped it with Poppy Parade ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Roses Dies (part of the Christmastime Is Here suite).  The patterned paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper pack.  It coordinates perfectly with the kits color scheme – Shaded Spruce.

To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the November 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.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — On My Mind

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the July Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by THREE different product suites found in the Annual catalog:  Come Sail Away, Woven Threads and Garden Love.  Based on these wonderful kit projects, I couldn't tell you which one is my favorite.  Although, I will admit the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is my ultimate favorite pack, right now.  The rustic colors and scratchy, aztech-y (totally made up that word) patterns really speak to me.

07.19_PP_FACEBOOK
Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using on my alternate projects to share with you, but this month, I was more drawn to using only the stamp set.  I loved the designed card projects in the kit that I did not want to chop up any of the card bases, envelopes, or steal the dies and embellishments to create an alternative.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindBirthday-Lori-DSC00963
I love to create the non-typical sized card.  Yes, I have to be different, but if truth be told, I had a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that was in my scrap folder measuring 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" — perfect for a square card!

 

07.19_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

I'm certain the stamp set included in the kit is going to get a lot of attention from me to create a variety of cards.  I mean, look at those lovely sentiments!  Very versatile and has "all occasion" written all over them. :)  A definite keeper, plus, a bonus from the kits — you build a small collection of stamp sets and ink spots that doesn't break the bank and will give you endless hours of creations.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindCardFlat-Lori-DSC00970

The instructions sheet that comes in the kit always lists the coordinating colors that go with the included supplies.  Since the cards were featuring three different product suites, there were a lot of colors to choose from, but I managed to narrow down to Terracotta Tile, Mint Macaron, and Seaside Spray to stamp the medallion.  Someone might ask if I used the Stamparatus to stamp the medallion image so evenly...my answer would be 'not this time'.  Since the stamp sets are photopolymer, I felt pretty comfortable stamping the image with my old eyeballs and a pair of 'cheater' glasses.  LOL!

 


On My Mind Dove Candy Holder

I'm on a mission to use up some Sahara Sand cardstock scraps, so this 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" strip was my inspiration to hold a nice piece of Dove chocolate.  I scored it at 2-1/8 and 2-5/8" and fancied up the top using the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Hugs from Shelli Alternatives

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the May Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by Stampin' Up!'s Co-Founder, Shelli Gardner!  **squeal**   I have always admired her stamping style because it is right up my alley...country, vintage, and rustic...all piled into one little box.  The name of this kit is very fitting, too..."Hugs from Shelli" because she is such a sweet, genuine woman.  I was sooo excited to see the stamp set and start playing with the new images.  

May2019-PPCoverPic

Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. This month was no different...all subscribers get to create 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs) that come with coordinating envelopes that are lined with designer paper.  The whole ensemble is so down-to-earth using a combination of colors that mix well...Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYouRt-Lori-DSC09884
I'm pretty sure the floral cardbase is my favorite pattern of the bunch, so I cut it down to help me dress up a 4" x 4" Crumb Cake cardbase.  The original cards are 3-1/2" x 5", so I cut the card base in half at the 3-1/2" score line.  (HINT:  don't toss the back part of the card, we'll use it in a bit).  The floral piece was trimmed from 5" to 3-5/8".

May2019-PPSupplyPic

Look at all of those supplies you get with this kit!  DANG!!  You can't beat a $20 kit in the mail when you get a full set of stamps, ink and two types of adhesives!

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYou-Lori-DSC09882

The ink spot included in the kit is Early Espresso, so I couldn't help myself but add a little Copper Foil trim using the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  To compliment the foil trim, the sentiment was inked with VersaMark onto Old Olive and heat set with the Heat Tool.  I added a fun trick with the sentiment inked with Early Espresso onto Petal Pink cardstock...add the strip to the Old Olive piece and die cut both sentiments together using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  It helps add a little contrast to the sentiment message.

 


Hugs from Shelli "Hello" Card

Since I cut one of the card bases in half, it left me with the back section of the card (plain Very Vanilla) to design another card.  We'll get a 2-for-1 set of cards with one card base!  YAY!  The floral print is the leftover from cutting down the front part of the cardbase...so, technically, you could say this card is filled with leftovers.

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCard-Lori-DSC09874

FUN TIP: Before tossing the negative to any edgelits-type of die cut, check to see if it could fit with another project.  That's what I did with the Copper Foil scalloped flourish die...fits perfect all lined up with the floral print, don't you think?!!

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCardFlat-Lori-DSC09880

The sentiment was inked with VersaMark, stamped directly on the Very Vanilla layer, covered with Copper Embossing powder and set with the Heat Tool.  I used one of the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the sentiment and then pop it up using Stampin' Dimensionals to set back in place.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Sentimental Rose

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  Thank you for stopping by; and welcome to our fun monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the April monthly kit.

PPHop-HeaderPic

Sentimental Rose is the name of the April kit, and it is quite beauty!   I was sooo excited to see the stamp set and start playing with the new images.  

04.18.19_PP_YOUTUBE

Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. This month was no different...all subscribers get to create 9 cards and an adorable belly band for the acetate box to package up the finished cards and coordinating envelopes.  The whole thing is just so pretty...all of the soft colors and subtle touches of embellishments speaks 'vintage' to me, which is very much my crafting style.

PPHop-SentimentalRoseCardFront-Lori-DSC09776

I couldn't bring myself to cut up the original card bases in this kit because I wanted to actually stamp and assemble the cards just the way the instructions laid out.  Eeek!  This only happens once in a blue moon.  I fell in love with the original designs, so why change something that isn't broke, right?!!

04.18.19_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

The versatility of this stamp set is amazing!!  I'm so excited to see that there is a sentiment to cover, at least, seven different occasions. And, look at all of the cool dimensions and shaded areas we can see on the rose and leaf images.

PPHop-SentimentalRoseCardRt-Lori-DSC09780

The ink color this month was Gray Granite, so I chose to make it the more prominent color for the cardbase.  There were other coordinating colors mixed within the kit...Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Mint Macaron.  The rose and leaf images really show off their Distinktive style textures...sooo pretty, no matter what color the rose is inked.

 


Sentimental Rose Belly Band

I created a Gray Granite belly band all dressed up with the Distinktive rose inked in Flirty Flamingo for one of our Striped Treat Bags (set to retire June 3rd, or while supplies last).  The sentiment was inked in Gray Granite and stamped onto one of the tags that came with the kit.

PPHop-SentimentalRose-BagBellyBand-LoriDSC09764

FUN TIP: Add a touch of vellum Leaf punches to enhance the elegant appearance.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Poppin' Birthday

Welcome-welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to our fun monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the March monthly kit named "Poppin Birthday". 

PPHop-HeaderPic

Every year, Paper Pumpkin celebrates its birthday with all subscribers...always with a little surprise gift, too.  This year was no different...everyone received an additional stamp set with their regular kit supplies.  How fun is that?!! 

03.19_PP_YOUTUBE[1]
This kit was loaded with supplies to create 8 really cute pop-up Birthday cards.  All of the pieces were die cut, ready to punch out, stamp and assemble.  Comes with a wide variety of adhesives, too...dimensionals, glue dots, and Tear and Tape strips!!  You don't even need a pair of scissors for this one...can't get any easier than that.

PPHop-PoppinBirthdayRt-Lori-DSC09577
I love that there are quite a few extra pieces/die cuts that come in the kit.  These cute little bows were perfect for the layout of my card.  The polka dot patterned paper is actually part of one of the decorative card bases.  Eeek!  Yep! I cut up a card base to create my projects today.

03.19_PP_KITCONTENTS

Look at all of those supplies that came in our kit!!

PPBlogHop-PoppinBirthdayLeft-Lori-DSC09575

The ink color this month was Poppy Parade.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Vellum cardstock circle and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder so that it would stand out more.  I backed it with a Whisper White smaller sized circle die to avoid the patterned paper causing a distraction with our eyeballs.  teehehe.

 


Envelope Punch Board Candy Box

I took one of the patterned card bases and cut it down to measure 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".  Using my Envelope Punch Board, I created a little treat box that measures 3" x 3".

FUN TIP: To create a closure for the envelope flap, use a Mini Glue Dot under the paper bow.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Be Mine Stitched Valentine

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to our fun monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the January monthly kit named "Be Mine". 

PPHop-HeaderPic

Lately, Stampin' Up! has been giving us little hints as to what our next month's kit will be focusing on.  The hint for this month indicated that it would coordinate with the Animal Expedition Suite of products found on page 27 in the Annual catalog.

January2019-BeMine

This kit was loaded with supplies to create 24 A-DOR-ABLE pillow treat boxes!  All of the pieces were die cut, ready to punch out, stamp and assemble.  Comes with a wide variety of adhesives, too...dimensionals, glue dots, and Tear and Tape strips!!  You don't even need a pair of scissors for this one...can't get any easier than that.

PPThingHop-BeMineBirdCard-Lori-DSC09330


For my alternate project, I hung out with these two love birds.  Aren't they just the cutest little couple?  I colored them with a variety of Stampin' Blends colors:  Balmy Blue, Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Mint Macaron.

PPThingHop-BeMineBirdCardClose-Lori-DSC09333

Since the kit was titled "Be Mine", I just had to throw in a Stitched Heart from the "Be Mine" Stitched Framelits Die set.  If you are new to my blog and haven't been following me, you'll discover that I'm addicted to the new set of hearts framelits.  LOVE them!!

PPThingHop-BeMineBirdCardRT-Lori-DSC09331

I thought it was fitting to set the two love birds on a bed of Layered Leaves...it's been a while since I've used that embossing folder.  The kit included a lot of extra epoxy colored hearts, so I scattered a few across the card.

 


Chameleon Candy Tag

This little guy with his fly friend is so stinkin' cute!

PPthingHop-BeMineCandyTag-Lori-DSC09326

 

PPThingHop-BeMineCandyTag2-Lori-DSC09327

FUN TIP: All Paper Pumpkin kits come with a set of Photopolymer stamp images.  Since you can see through the block to stamp your images, it makes it super easy and efficient to die cut the Stitched Circle first, then stamp.  If you want to create this tag in bulk, the Stamparatus will be your best friend to whip them up in no time flat.


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the January 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.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — To You And Yours in Holiday Plaid

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to our fun monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the November monthly kit named "To You & Yours". 

PPHop-HeaderPic

I knew the minute I saw the plaid box that Stampin' Up! was showing off last month as a teaser of what might be inside for supplies that I was going to be hooked in love!!  I mean, really, plaid is the fashion right now...so, I knew it was going to be a good one.

Nov2018-ToYouandYours
AND, I was right!  As soon as I opened the box and saw the card designs, I was all giddy.  Those cards just scream wood burning stove in a log cabin relaxing in my PJ's sipping on hot coffee. Haha!

PPThingHop-YouYours-MerryBanner-Lori-DSC09101

For my alternate project, I went big and bold.  I cut three crumb cake cardbases in half at the 5-1/2" score line and used each half to create a "MERRY" banner.  The Large Alphabet Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits are always my go-to dies for banners.

PPThingHop-Nov2018-MerryBannerLayer-Lori-DSC09098

The kit included a woodgrained sticker that had a pre-cut circle...none of it went to waste.  The circle was used as a direct layer for a couple of the letters; and the negative worked well as a matte presenting variety among the banner pieces,

PPThingHop-Nov2018-MerryBanner-Lori-DSC09104

There is some fine gold stripes mixed in the plain designer papers, so I brought in some Gold Foil paper as an accent to give the banner a richer country appeal.  The banner pieces are threaded together using 3/8" Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon.  I thought about taking the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon and separating the strands so they were loose and then thread through, but I really like the softness the Classic Weave Ribbon adds to the overall design.

 

This would look gorgeous strung across a fireplace mantel...but, if you don't have one, hanging on a wall or across the front of a bookcase would be festive, as well.  I hope you liked my project...it is super cool in real life...darned pictures just never do an amazing project true justice.

Halloween Frights and Delights Homemade Designer Paper

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardBoo-Lori-DSC07950

I was preparing for a craft fair this last weekend and had made up all of my September Paper Pumpkin Frights and Delights treat bags to hand out to shoppers stopping by my booth.  Now that those are all gone, what do you have left in your Paper Pumpkin box?  The stamp set, ink spot, and other extra pieces from the kit, right?  What do you do with those items — pack up and store them for a rainy day (although, it's been raining in my area for 4 days straight!)?  OR, do you keep playing and making new stuff?

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecard-Lori-DSC07941

Normally, my stamp sets and ink spots get put to the side while I feverishly work on my next projects, but not this time!  I wanted to show myself that there is still lots of life in these amazing images by creating my own "Designer Series Paper"!  That's right!  Have you ever noticed that there isn't any decorative patterned paper to play with?


FrightsDelights-StampSet

In true color, Basic Gray Classic ink will appear much darker than what you see on my card.  To avoid stealing the eye from the sentiment focal point, I inked up the various images, stamped off one time, then stamped onto the Whisper White layer.  I did the same with the Pumpkin Pie Jack-o-Lantern, too.  Now the spider and bat were full ink, but because they are small, it gave some contrast to the "designer paper" I was creating.

 

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardFlat-Lori-DSC07948
There were, at least, half a dozen of the 'Boo!' stickers leftover from the kit, plus, lots of Black/Silver Baker's Twine to help adorn the focal image.  The Everyday Label punch made a quick background layer for the Pumpkin Pie Stitched Shapes Square.  A nice accent to show off the sticker, too.  Stinkin' cute!!

Even though the kit contained all of the supplies to create 24 adorable Halloween treat bags, I enjoyed using the leftover supplies, and a few of my own, to create my own spooktacular fun!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Frights and Delights

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to our fun monthly 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 September monthly kit named "Frights & Delights". 

PPHop-HeaderPic

This months kit is nothing to be scared about...it would be scarier if we didn't have something spooky and fun to put our little treats in to give to the little goblins in our lives.  Eeeek!!

PP-Sept2018-KitImage
I pondered on what I was going to do with the extra pieces within my kit.  That's right!  You will find that after assembling all 24 little treat bags that there are LOTS of extra pieces that you can play with to create a card, candy tags, embellish a scrapbook page...whatever you want to do with extra pieces is all up to you!

PPHop-Sept2018-FrightsCard-Lori-DSC07882

This kit came with extra characters, so I chose to show them off all on one card using the featured colors of the kit...Basic Black, Basic Gray, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, and Pumpkin Pie.

PPHop-Sept2018-FrightsFlat-Lori-DSC07873

I'm infatuated with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and Vellum...I just love the cool effect it gives when topped over a darker colored cardstock, such as, Basic Black.  The "Boo" image is heat embossed onto a strip of Basic Black cardstock and White Embossing Powder.

PPHop-Sept2018-FrightsLeft-Lori-DSC07872

The Silver Foil paper to place behind the Pumpkins' face and Ghosts'eyes is just tooo cute!  I think I captured the spookiness pretty well in this picture.  These little characters are too stinkin' cute, don't you think?  A fun, whimsical Halloween card for any age.

 


Mini Candy Bar Tag Wrapper

I stuck with the same base cardstock layer of Basic Gray to coordinate with the Halloween card. There are extra sticker words in this kit, too.  Can you tell that you are going to be able to play with this kit a little while after all the treat bags are made up and given away?  How exciting, right?!!

PPHop-Sept2018-FrightsCandyWrapperFlat-Lori-DSC07868

To hold the Basic Gray wrapper layer together, punch each end with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and tied together with some of the beautiful Black and Silver Baker's Twine.

PPHop-Sept2018-FrightsCandyWrapperClose-Lori-

FUN TIP:  To avoid the extended sticker words from sticking to areas that you don't want them to stick to, take the Embossing Buddy and tap over those sticky areas...enough that your sticker is no longer a sticker.  Gotta love a crafting tool that is used outside of its typical designed use.  :)

From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!! But, if you want to become a "Happy Shopper" and get all of your favorites on your wish list at a discount, you can purchase the Starter Kit and join my Stampin' Up! family...fill your Starter Kit with what YOU want (up to $125 worth of product)!  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.

 

Thank you for Shopping with Lori
