Yay! It’s that time again…Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!! We get to show off our alternates for this month’s amazing kit! I know everyone is adoring those trees, but I veered off in a different direction.
Here is the card designed for the October kit – Winter Woods:
It’s a lovely card and I will probably make most of them just like this to make my Christmas card making time go faster! I make about 100 Christmas cards that I send out to family and friends, so any quick help from Paper Pumpkin is appreciated!
I wanted to use the lovely sparkly paper after taking out the trees to make something. Actually, I got the idea of using the scraps to create other shapes from my friend Crystal. She cut out balloons, banners, and stars…I saw it for the perfect paper for snowflakes!
I love snow and snowmobiling! During our first winter here we did our first snowmobile run to an area only for snowmobiling. It was so gorgeous! So, I chose to make a scrapbook page. I’ll make more pages to include more pictures, but at least I got it started. I have a good picture in mind for the oval…just didn’t have it printed out yet (the only drawback of digital pictures…you don’t print them out as fast!)
The snowflakes and branch came from the Seasonal Layers dies that coordinate with the Colorful Seasons stamp set.
On a 12×12 piece of Night of Navy cardstock, I used 1 of the envelopes and cut it open to have the wood background, then I cut the trees from the card out in an oval and will put a picture inside the oval to hide the Shaded Spruce background. I also did a frame of falling snow using the stamp and white embossing powder. That was the largest embossing area I had ever done! It kinda curved my paper…not sure what I could do differently…if you know…please comment below!
Well, what do you think? I am pretty happy with it! Felt good to scrapbook again! Will be doing more soon!
Now it is time for you to hop on over to Darla Watson’s page and see what fantastic alternate she came up with! Come on back later and you can check below for specials and supply list.
