54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_oHowdy Everybody!

I trust everyone is doing great and enjoying their summer! It is the end of July, so that means it is time for our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! Wahoo! If you are coming from Terri Takashige’s blog, thank you for hopping along!

We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use July’s kit Summer Nights…let’s get started!

I opened my box the other day and then set it aside while I went through a Mohs procedure on my face and arm. Today, I got down to business and now I can’t stop! There are a few more posts coming for this week with all the cards I created!

Here are the original creations for this fun box:

I found that I used the front of one of the bags more for a stencil than anything else! I wasn’t much into using the bag as bags, but we will see in the future, I still have 4 left.

I picked 3 of my alternate creations for this blog hop on which I used embossing powder to really boost these cards up a notch! I like how they turned out. What do you think? 


For this one I used silver embossing powder for the fireworks after I used Versa Mark over the stencil from the bag front and on the stamp.

 On this next card, I sponged the background using the color palate from the kit of Blackberry Bliss, Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral (an amazing combination) and created more night time backgrounds in a sunset-ish fashion…


I also used the back of the bag and cut out an oval using the layering oval dies and then stamped on it and embossed with clear embossing powder over the Coastal Cabana ink. I used silver and white embossing powder for the stenciled fireworks on the background.


Then I used a lighter technique of sponging for the background on this next card and focused instead on making the fireworks darker. I also used black embossing powder on the sentiment to really make it stand out!



Putting vellum down is always tricky if you don’t have enough places to hide it, but I think it worked out well.

That’s it for today, check back this week for the rest of the cards I made today! And, who knows…could be many more…the ideas keep coming each time I make a card!

Time to hop on over to Cheryl Hamilton on Maui and see what she has created for you this month! Keep hopping along for great ideas and inspiration and I will see you next time!53636731_10219309231506307_35901588677591040_o
