A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Exploring In Color Alternate Card 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*

EXPLORING IN COLOR

This month's blog hop is working with the Exploring In Color (May 2023) Paper Pumpkin kit.  It contains the supplies to make nine masculine/adventurous cards that bring the colors and images of the great outdoors to your crafting. It features cards in our brand-new 2023–2025 In Colors.  Once the supplies are used up to create those cards, I can now focus on creating this fantastic birthday card using extra supplies within the kit and additional supplies and tools from my own stash.

APPT Hop-Exploring In Color Man Birthday-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC07032For me, it's not always easy to create a masculine card, but I'm pretty impressed that I used only the supplies that came in the kit with exception of two cardstock colors (Copper Clay and Pebbled Path) and Basic White cardstock.  I can always come up with a card design, but to avoid adding too much bling is a real problem for me.

APPT Hop-Exploring In Color Man Birthday-Side-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC07036I took one of the original card bases and cut them in half.  These bases have the adventurous landscape scenery printed across the whole 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 piece, so it's easy to make multiple cards from one base.  From there, I cut off 3/4" from each side of the chosen half; and, then shorted to 5" to adhere to the Pebbled Path cardstock matte layer that measures 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  The new card base is a single piece measuring at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2...no scoring or folds...just a single layer.

APPT Hop-Exploring In Color Man Birthday-Open-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC07035
The center piece measures 5-3/8" x 2-3/8", scored at 3/8" at the top.  This is so I can hide that little bit with a piece of Basic White cardstock at the same size to adhere between the two strips.  Performing a bit of masking with the sentiment, it was inked with Copper Clay and stamped onto an extra label piece that came with the kit.  The mug image was stamped with Copper Clay, hand cut and popped up with dimensionals.  Added a bit of Linen Thread and planted to the center piece with more dimensionals.  Super easy and looks amazing!

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.

APPT Hop-All The Little Things-Sympathy Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06991
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.

APPT Hop-All The Little Things-Sympathy Lt-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06996
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.

APPT Hop-All The Little Things-Sympathy FlatClose-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06999
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.

Easy Love For You Tea Boutique Card Set

Tea Boutique Cards-DSP-Group-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06972

Hello Friends!!  I've been looking through the Last Chance List to see what is still available to purchase; and, much to my surprise, I found some wonderful products with great discounts still on the shelves!  I can't believe the fun and vibrant Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes and Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper packs haven't sold out by now. They show off the bold and vibrant 2022-2024 In Colors (Orchid Oasis, Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide). You get 20 card bases with coordinating envelopes for a whopping $4.00!!  That's $.20 per card!  The designer paper is on sale for $8.20...a steal of a deal!

So, I'm here today with a fun project share that showcases a fun and easy Tiling Technique.  I showed how to put these together during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams Facebook Live on April 23, 2023.  Look for the video and link at the bottom of this post.  If you need to purchase any of the supplies, I've listed them at the bottom, too.  I highly suggest you place an order quick because I guarantee that you'll want to grab these sale items before they disappear for good. 

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Orchid Oasis-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06958
I started out selecting 5 different patterned papers from the Tea Boutique pack that coordinated with the 5 card bases.  From there, I pulled a coordinating cardstock color from each patterned paper to use as the matte layer and Love For You Dies. I die cut the center to create a frame using the Stitched Rectangle Dies...the one that measures 3-1/8" x 2-3/4".  This set of dies is also on the Last Chance List.  I literally shed a tear because this set of dies has been one of my go-to sets.  Love-Love-Love them!  I filled in the center with a piece of Vellum cardstock to tone down the card front so it wouldn't overwhelm and steal away from the focal center I was adding.

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Sweet Sorbet-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06958

This one is the Sweet Sorbet cardbase with a Parakeet Party cardstock layer that compliments the Tea Boutique Designer paper.  The small and large flower images are part of the Love For You stamp set and are stamped with Sweet Sorbet and Petal Pink ink...two more colors pulled from the patterned paper.

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06970

There isn't an image to stamp the flower centers, so I filled them in with Silver studs from the Adhesive Backed Studs embellishment pack.  Perfect shape!

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Tahitian Tide-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06958
This card uses a Crumb Cake matte layer, Tahitian Tide and Crush Curry for the die cut words and flowers...kind of a Hawaiian vibe, don't you think?  I love how one card layout is receptive to several different occasions that were supported by various sentiments found in the Love For You stamp set...Congratulations and Thanks.  I know a couple female colleagues who are retiring at the end of this school year, so I wanted to wish them well traveling their next journey.  Then, there are a couple of Lori's Dream Team members who have helped others discover their creative side.  So proud of them!

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Starry Sky-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06958

The Petal Pink matted frame layer, the die cut "for you" in Starry Sky and Sweet Sorbet, stamped flowers and sentiment were all popped up, while the Vellum cardstock layer was adhered directly to the card front to reflect a window effect and depth.

Tea Boutique Cards Env-DSP-Parakeet Party-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06958

In my opinion, I believe this one is the boldest and brightest of them all.  The matte layer is Starry Sky with Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide for the die cut words and flowers.  Each finished card was connected to its coordinating envelope and is now ready for my message and delivery. A quick and easy set of 5 cards all set for a wonderful celebrations and acknowledgement!

This month's blog hop is working with the Key To My Heart (January 2023) Paper Pumpkin kit.  It contains the supplies to make nine darling love-themed cards.  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.

APPT Hop-Key To My Heart Valentine Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06482

This kit didn't have a lot of extra pieces, so I focused on the stamp set to create a new card.  I stayed with the main color theme—Fresh Freesia—as my cardbase which measures 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2", folded and burnished with a bone folder.  I cut up one of the envelopes because the inside was this pretty Fresh Freesia pattern and works great as a layer for the Petal Pink Scalloped Contours Die cut.  Before adhering the layers to the card front, I inked up the hearts image with Fresh Freesia and stamped a couple of times in 2 of the corners.

APPT Hop-Key To My Heart Valentine Lt-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06486

One of the original card designs from the kit left behind this Petal Pink key hole punch out.  The image was inked with Fresh Freesia and Clear Embossed for added glam.  I layered a Scallop Circle die cut from Gold Foil to the key hole piece and set onto the card front with dimensionals.

APPT Hop-Key To My Heart Valentine Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06491

The heart-shaped lock was inked with Calypso Coral on the bottom and Versa Mark on the upper lock area and heat embossed with Gold on that portion of the image.  The key image was also inked with Versa Mark and heat embossed with Gold powder.  Both images were hand cut (aka fussy cut) and attached to the key hole piece using some of the Calypso Coral baker's twine from the kit.  The sentiment was inked with Fresh Freesia and stamped onto a strip of Basic White cardstock and adhered to the key hole piece.


Simply adorable and ready to send off to my favorite Valentine!  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, 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 any of the wonderful inspiration!

Best Day Birthday Sale-A-Bration with Dandy Designs and Matching Envelope

SAB23_en_US_Page_01

Hello Friends!!  I've got a fantastic card to share with you that is incorporating new items from the 2023 January-April Mini catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The Best Day stamp set includes a few images that are perfect for color with a number of mediums...alcohol markers, watercolor pencils or watercoloring with ink.  My color palette for the cake colors originate from the Dandy Designs 12' x 12' Designer Series Paper—FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.

Best Day-Dandy Designs SAB-Birthday Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06367

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and added a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock that was run through with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder to the top half of the card front.  The bottom half consists of patterns that make up the front and back of one sheet of Dandy Designs Designer Series paper.

Best Day-Dandy Designs SAB-Birthday RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06369
I started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that measures 3" x 4". The scalloped tag look at the top was created by using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  NOTE:  when layering the plates to cut, make sure the top plate only covers the area of the die that you want cut.  I added the slot die at the same time so I was only needing one pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine.

Best Day-Dandy Designs SAB-Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06375
It's so therapeutic to color stamped images!  The image was inked with Memento Black and stamped onto the Basic White tag piece.  From the color palette of the Dandy Designs Designer paper, I chose to color with Stampin' Blends using the combo packs of Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate.  For added dimension, the 'Birthday' portion of the image was inked again and stamped onto a piece of scrap Granny Apple Green, hand cut out and attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  Slip a piece of Balmy Blue & White Ribbon through the slot and finish off with some Smoky Slate Baker's Twine tied into a bow.  Add this piece to the card front with dimensionals.

Best Day-Dandy Designs SAB-Birthday Card Env-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06373

To finish the project, I scattered some Iridescent Pastel Gems (new from the January-April mini catalog) across the card.  I love to decorate envelopes...gotta give the postal carrier something to enjoy during their route :)...I did a little bit of stamping with Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue ink on the front and adhered a piece of the Dandy Designs Designer Paper to the flap of the envelope.  All set for a wonderful birthday celebration!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Good Things Come In Small Packages Alternate Idea

APPT Hop Header-Image

Hello stamping friends!  My name is Lori Mueller and I welcome you to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing (APPT) blog hop group!  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 (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*

GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES

1222_PP_FACEBOOK_TOOLKIT

1222_PP_KITCONTENTS 2022_12_PP_MKTL_STAMP_ARTWORK


This month's blog hop is working with the Good Things Come In Small Packages (December 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit.  It contains the supplies to make sixteen colorful and exciting gift card holder boxes.  Buuut, I chose to create a super cute card using supplies within the kit and extra supplies and tools from my own stash.

 

APPT Hop-Good Things Congrats Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-IMG_5901
This kit has a schlew of colors mixed in the design, so I chose a Basic Gray cardbase which measures 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; scored at 4-1/4", folded and burnished with a bone folder. The next couple layers are Vellum cardstock that was dry embossed with the Into The Clouds Embossing folder.  Not only do you get texture, but embossing Vellum is simply cool!  This piece was attached to the largest Scalloped Contours Die cut from Smoky Slate cardstock.

APPT Hop-Good Things Congrats Left-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-IMG_5900-IMG_5900
The original gift card boxes calls for belly bands made from the variety of patterned strips.  I chose to use a Stitched Rectangle die to cut one from each of the patterns, then matte with coordinating colored cardstock (Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Balmy Blue and Garden Green).  These matted pieces were added to the Vellum layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Before I adhered the Balmy Blue layer, I wrapped some of the Basic Gray Baker's Twine (included in the kit) around the whole collection of layers and tied into a bow.  Then add the Balmy Blue matted layer to finish the colorful front.

APPT Hop-Good Things Congrats Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-IMG_5905
Adhere the Scalloped Contours, et all, to the card front using Liquid glue.  There are several extra Circles with the kit and will git several of the stamp images Vellum.  The sentiment was inked with Basic Gray and added to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The smaller sentiment was inked with Calypso Coral, stamped onto Basic White cardstock and hand cut with Snips to add a little variance from the focal point.


Super cute, right?!!  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, 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 any of the wonderful inspiration!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Spooky Treats Alternate Idea

APPT Hop Header-Image

Hello stamping friends!  My name is Lori Mueller and I welcome you to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop group!  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 (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!

SPOOKY TREATS

0922_PP_MKTL_STAMP_ARTWORK

This month's blog hop floats along with Spooky Treats (September 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit.  Get ready to make this the most fang-tastic Halloween ever! It has all the ghostly accessories necessary to Trick—or—Treat.  Teehehe

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06240


I went with Basic Black as my cardbase which measures 5-1/2" x 5-3/4" and then scored at 1-1/2" along the 5-1/2" side.  You'll need another strip that measures 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" for the bottom section to create the Open Panel. 

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06243

The designer paper is actually one of the sleeves that was cut down and matted with Pumpkin Pie before adhering to the cardbase and extra Basic Black strip.  The inside panel is Fresh Freesia...thought it was less dramatic than using Basic White.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06250

Die cut a piece of Orchid Oasis using the largest square from the Stylish  Shapes dies.  Use that as a matte layer to the 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" Basic Black square.  Position the extra matted Basic Black strip on the bottom section of the card base.  The ghost image is absolutely adorable when heat embossed with White powder onto Vellum cardstock.  After hand cutting them out, I added ink to the back using a Water Painter.  I used the color palette used in the kit:  Crushed Curry, Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie and Fresh Freesia.  They were added to the stitched square with Mini Dimensionals that were cut in half and strategically added to the eyes and mouth of the ghost.  This was to ensure the dimensionals were not seen through the Vellum.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Open-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06248


Add adhesive to the top and bottom 1/4" section of the stitched square and add it to the front top flap and the bottom strip.  This builds a 'bridge' between the two sections and creates the Open Panel. The bats image was inked with Memento Black onto the inside panel.  Super cute, right?!!  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, 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!
