My Paper Pumpkin

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.  :)

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!

PPHop-HeaderPic

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!!

June2018-BroadwayStar-header

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).

PP-June2018-BroadwayStarFront-Lori-DSC06696

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.

PP-June2018-BroadwayStarOpen-Lori-DSC06697

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.

PP-June2018-BroadwayStar-25Prop-Lori-DSC06703

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.

PP-June2018BroadwayStar-Openright-Lori-DSC06698

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 

 

Jar Pic

 

 

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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Manly Moments

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is the last day in May...yikes! but we have a really fun A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop to share with you!!  YAY! A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the May monthly kit named "Manly Moments".  I'm super excited to share the projects I created for you....let's get to it, shall we!

PPHop-HeaderPic

Do you struggle creating "Manly" cards?  Yep, I do, too!  Buuut, I'm so excited to see my Paper Pumpkin kit arrive filled with the supplies to create 10 masculine cards ranging from birthday to thank you...and, including nephews and brothers.

 

9d871d66294fe0a203297c36575a2dd2

Another thing I struggle with is creating clean and simple cards...this entire kit is just that.  But, of course, when I create to showcase an alternative card, I have to kick it up a notch...or two.  :)  I started with a traditional cardstock base of 4-1/4" x 11', but scoring it at 4-1/4" and 8-1/2" is not our typical card style.

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-Lori-DSC06570

I took one of the cardbases from the kit and cut the wood grain and plaid sections off of the card base so that I could use the pieces to decorate and create a really fun pocket card.

 

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018Flat-Lori-DSC06574

The front pocket can house the woodgrain notecard, but there are so many different items you can tuck into pocket cards:  bookmarks, magnets, tags, gift cards, and personalized notes.

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018FlatPocket-Lori-DSC06576

 

Cute Thank You Tag

You are not probably going to believe this, but this little tag is made up of scraps that were laying around my craft counter.  **squeal**  I inked the "thank you" image in Mossy Meadow and stamped first and 2nd renditions onto the scrap stitched shape circle.  The woodgrain strip is from the pocket notecard that I trimmed down.  Super cute, right?!!

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-ThankYouTag-Lori-DSC06585

 

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-ThankYouTagFlat-Lori-DSC06582

 

I'm really pleased with how these projects came together...clean and simple!  The pocket card can be for any occasion, too...birthday, anniversary, etc.  Gotta love the creations that are designed to accommodate more than one occasion.  :)

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- You Are My Anchor

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is May...already! but we have a really fun A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop to share with you!!  A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the April monthly kit named "You Are My Anchor".  I'm super excited to share what I created for you....let's get to it, shall we!

PPHop-HeaderPic

Do you have a sailor or avid boater in the family?  How cute is this kit?  Fun 3" x 3" cards with coordinating envelopes...then you can tuck a set of five into the adorable gift box.  You'll have four wonderful gifts...all out of ONE little kit!  Can't beat that, I'd say! ;)

 

April2018-YouAreMyAnchor


I decided to take one cardbase from each design and cut the 3" x 6" in half.  The Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes were calling my name to enhance and add the original designed 3" x 3" card to the front.  I focused on adding cardstock pieces in the coordinating colors of Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Pool Party.

 

PP-April2018-YoureMyAnchorGroupFlat-Lori-DSC06454


One more added feature was to emboss the cardstock strip layers using the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I couldn't resist...it was meant to have a little bit of wave with the images.  :)

PP-April2018-YoureMyAnchor-Lifesaver-Lori-DSC06462

 

This set of 5 notecards went together pretty quickly.  Now, all I have to do is add a little coordinating stamped image to the envelopes and I have a 'larger' gift set of cards to give away.  By cutting the 3" x 3"s in half, I'll get double the amount of cards because all but one had the matching design on the other half.  **squeal**

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — May Good Things Grow

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  The end of March is knocking down our doors, but not before you attend 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 March monthly kit named May Good Things Grow.  This month's kit is a really special one because of March is the month that Paper Pumpkin came to life.  Shall we go take a peek at what I created for you.

PPHop-HeaderPic

 

This month's hop features a little bit of vintage...such as reflecting on Stampin' Up!'s upcoming 30th Anniversary celebration...many good things have grown over the years since Stampin' Up! came to life back in 1988.  :)

 



I die cut the largest stitched oval from the center of one of the patterned pieces and raised it to reflect an eclipse effect.

 

PP-MayGoodThingsGrow-Lori-DSC06384


I had to matte the patterned paper because it is too pretty not to pair it up with Fresh Fig cardstock.  The Fresh Fig ribbon is oh-so pretty for finishing into a knot.

The focal wooden piece was stamped with one of the sentiments using Early Espresso Classic ink.  Add one of the larger Fresh Fig pearls to each end and decorated with a couple of the leaf punch-outs.

Coordinating Envelope Box (aka Bag-a-lope)

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to alter one of the envelopes into a little treat gift box.  Decorate it with some of the ribbon and die cut flowers and leaves, and you've got a winner of a little gift box.

 

PP-MayGoodThingsGrow-EnvelopeBox-Lori-DSC06395

Due to the heaviness of the envelope, it would work best to use Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scored Tool to ensure you get a nice score line to fold on.

PP-MayGoodThingsGrow-BoxSideBack-Lori

Slice a very thin piece off the bottom of the envelope.  Then score at 5/8" on each side, and 3/4" on the bottom.  Snip up from the bottom to horizontal score line on each side, fold on score lines, adhere the bottom together, and decorate.

Stampin' Friends Blog Hop -- No Rules in March

 

Good morning to everyone!  Welcome to my stop on the Stampin Friends Blog Hop!  I am excited about this months stamping theme...No Rules!!  WHOOPEEEEE!  That's like eating as many sweets as your stomach can consume (without all the added calories, I might add!)  We are given free reign...totally our choice...stamp/craft anything we want!!  I can't tell you how this made my heart go pitter-patter only because these last few weeks I have struggled to find my creative MOJO juice.  If this is your first stop on the Stampin Friends Blog Hop or you arrived here from one of the other Stampin Friends bloggers, I'm excited to share with you.

26170608_10155849036251101_8249645381342459066_o Sooo, with No Rules comes the perfect opportunity to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) someone else's creation.  Or, at least gain inspiration from a card that moves me and incorporate my own tweaking of colors, designer series paper, or stamped images

 

SFHop-TrulyTailoredDapperDayFront-Lori-DSC06323


First up, is a clean-and-simple greeting card showing off one of the patterns from the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You can choose this 12" x 12" pack free with a $50 product order during Sale-A-Bration...hurry, this most-favored event ends March 31st!

Creative Tips:

  • The inspiration for this creation stems from a sample card pictured in the 2nd Sale-A-Bration release brochure.  I used the same Dapper Denim cardstock and striped pattern from the Springtime Foils Specialty paper, but I changed up the focal arrangement.

 

SFHop-TrulyTailoredDapperDayFlat-Lori-DSC06327


  • To compliment the Dapper Denim cardbase and add a bit of character, I added a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper and banner cut the bottom end.  The sentiment comes from the Truly Tailored stamp set inked with Archival Basic Black ink and stamped onto our Shimmery White cardstock.  LOVE that paper!  You can't see in the picture, but it really compliments the Silver Foil stripes.  Add some Silver Metallic Thread to the Stitched Oval and set into place.

 

Acetate Gift Box for Dad:  I am so thrilled that the Acetate Gift Boxes from the last Holiday catalog are still available for purchase.  I cut one in half and decorated it with a belly-band using a strip of the striped Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series paper layered onto strips of the Color Theory Designer Series paper.  The focal point is using elements and design to compliment the card.  Filled it with some Sweet Soirée Ready Shreddie available in the Occasions catalog and will tuck some sweets and gift card to make it complete and ready to gift.  Super easy and oh-so adorbs!!

  • DID YOU KNOW? that you can click on any images I include related to the project to see an enlarged version?  Yep!  I do this so that you can see the details of my projects a weeee bit better. As I get older, I'm finding myself pulling out what I call my "granny glasses".  haha

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.


PPHop-HeaderPic

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!

 

PP-Feb2018-WildflowerWishes-Image


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

 

Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShaker-Lori-DSC06284



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.

 

PP-Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShaker-Flat-Lori-DSC06296

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.

 

Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShakerLeft-Lori-DSC06287

 

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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- January 2018 Heartfelt Love Notes

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is nearing the end of January, which means that if you are reading this, then A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop has landed on your computer screen!!  A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the January monthly kit.  I had been waiting anxiously to receive my little box, but when it arrived, I had to reshift my priorities and hold off opening the surprise for a couple of days.  Say WHAAAT?!!!  GASP, I know!  Well, let's not delay this reveal...let's get to it!


PPHop-HeaderPic

This month's hop features the next special occasion...Valentine's Day...so, it's only fair that the kit would be named "Heartfelt Love Notes".  The stamp set includes six different sentiments and four "Love Note' images. Every box is filled with everything you need to create 16 Love Notes...even comes with the envelopes!

 

Jan2018-PPkit-HeartfeltLoveNotes


I decided to take one of the love notes and cut off the front flap...leaving only the pocket portion to alter.

 

PP-Jan2018-HeartfeltLoveNotesPocket-Lori-DSC06126


I have been in a heat emboss crafting crave this last month!  Whoa!!  Say that 3 times real fast...quite the tongue twister.  Buuut, so much fun!  This picture doesn't show off the shine of the clear embossed "Happy Valentine's Day", but you can definitely see the gold foil hearts on the pocket.

 

PP-Jan2018--HeartfeltLoveNotesPocketOpen-Lori-DSC06125

I cut off the scalloped edge of one of the note cards and matted it with Rich Razzleberry cardstock to give it a little color contrast to the Flirty Flamingo pocket.

 

PP-Jan2018-HeartfeltLoveNotesFlapCard-Lori-DSC06114

And, look!  There's the flap that I cut off...and, the scallops from the note card.  Teehehe!  The vellum heart was part of the kit, as well as, the gel dots and ribbon.  I cheated and used a regular fork to create that awesome bow!  That is my go-to technique when I want both tails to display from behind the knot.  It gives such a more finished and clean look.

 

PP-Jan2018-HeartfeltLoveNotesFlapCardFlat-Lori-DSC06119

 

Isn't this just adorable?!!  Lots of heat embossing...the sentiment and little envelopes.  I love how the gold embossed mini envelopes came out on the Rich Razzleberry cardstock...very rich looking.

What do you think?  In my creative dreams, I was striving for elegant, which is a bit different from the modern look of the original pocket note card.  :)  If you haven't done any heat embossing lately, you need to pull out that Heat Tool and have some fun.  I can't seem to put my gun down for very long before I'm heat embossing something new.  I'd love to have you share your creations with me.

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 to share.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

 


At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to Kelly Acheson’s blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know that she will have something adorable to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Melissa Thomas's blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
