PPP Blog Hop – World’s Greatest

Howdy!

It is that time of the month when we explore the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities for our kits by hopping along with these talented demonstrators to see what alternates they have created!

If you are coming from Cheryl Hamilton’s blog, then Thank You for continuing to hop with us!

This month’s kit was titled World’s Greatest and as always, I made one of each of the kit’s designs.

When I first opened the kit, the stamp set was upside down and so the ribbon looked like a milk jug to me. Then I realized it was the ribbon for the medal. And it still looked like a milk jug…so I made it a milk jug! 🙂

I really love how it turned out!! How about you?

I used one of the white cards and sponged it with the Mint Macaron and Bumblebee to tie it into the negative that I used as my frame. I also sponged the frame more to make the colors softer. I used the edges of the dimensionals to adhere the frame to the card. I used the Sprig punch to punch out some of the gold paper and then I sponged the vellum leaves and berries with Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss. I stamped the jug in Soft Suede and fussy cut it out. I used dimensionals for the jug and glue dots for the leaves and branches and for the linen bow on the front of the milk jug.

That’s it for me today! Short and sweet! Now it is time for you to hop on over to my friend Darla Roberts’ blog and see what fantastic alternate she came up with!

PPP Blog Hop – Summer Nights

 

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:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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? 

1595973718828

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…

1595974979051

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.

1595974048183

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!

1595974869175

1595974825490

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

June PPP Blog Hop – Box of Sunshine

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy, Everyone!

It’s Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop time! WooHoo! I love my Paper Pumpkin! And this month we are showing you all kinds of ways to make alternates from the kit Box of Sunshine!

I kept it super simple this month since I am still unpacking! I know, I should be done, but sadly, there is always more than just my Creation Studio to work on! Plus, I am still doing my Online ESL teaching each morning!

Instead of doing a big box of sunshine to give away, I chose to use the Gold Mini Pizza Box and just give a few little treats inside, or a giant brownie! These pizza boxes are always fun since they are food safe. We have the same mail lady as before and she delivered my Paper Pumpkin to me before I even remembered to do my address change! So, I trust she is up for a brownie this week as a Thank you in this fun box!

1593555148231.jpg

I’ll make one of the cards as a Thank you card to let her know I appreciate that she did not send my Paper Pumpkin back like the last time I moved from Colorado!

That is it for me today. Short and sweet and back to setting up my new Stamp counter! Pictures will be forthcoming when I get the room done!

Now you get to hop on to Candy Ford’s website and see what fun thing she came up with! Enjoy the Hop!

PPP Blog Hop – A Kit In Color

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

 

Howdy, Everyone!

It’s time for our monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! WooHoo! If you are just starting with me, or hopping from Dana Sullivan, thank you for joining us! I love seeing what cool alternates these amazing crafters come up with! I have been known to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) their ideas because they are so inspirational!

Let’s get started! This month was the first time Paper Pumpkin SOLD OUT before the end of the sales period. This is a HOT kit! It introduces us to the new In Colors for the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that is coming out in a week! This kit uses the new 2020-2022 In Colors. Here is a picture of the cards it makes. I couldn’t find a better picture, so I just used this one. I usually make one of each, but I have been packing to move, and did not get the cards made. I moved Saturday.

As demonstrators, we get to pre-order items from the new catalogs before they go live, but this time the In Color inks were not part of that…so I am saying good bye to the out-going In Color inks of 2018-2020. They are Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel…all bright and yummy colors! You have until June 2nd to get your hands on them and their accessories HERE.

I only used the stamp set and one skeleton page from the kit to show off how versatile it is…this was fun!

1590181097765.jpg

Many will use that U as part of the rainbow, but with all the texting people do, this is what popped into my mind. Psst, I do not text like that because I am a teacher and it drives me bonkers, but it is what came to my mind first thing when I opened my kit. It needs a comma too, but I’m ignoring that. Hahaha!

I sponged the center with the Pineapple Punch and then worked my way out to the edge with the Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, then the Blueberry Bushel. I was going for a sunset-ish look since it’s a “Goodbye to the In Colors” card and a Retirement card for a friend. (Sure trust she gets it before she reads this!) I sponged the green around the bottom edges of the base. I have made this card with the cut angle going down, but decided to flip it to help show off the cool clouds. I tapped out all the clouds and tag from the kit and used the outline/skeleton page to sponge the clouds in Blueberry Bushel. Then sponged some of the sunset colors around the clouds. I stamped the “Hey’ and ‘amazing’ in Call Me Clover after cutting the “you’re” off. Yes, I did that. You can blame Jessica Cruz de Urrutia and Connie Stewart…I learned it from them. 😉 The U and R are stamped in Lovely Lipstick. The R is from Make a Difference alphabet stamp set. Lastly, I added a few rhinestones to give it a little extra bling. The layer is popped up with dimensionals to give it, well, dimension.

That’s it for me today. Supply list is below. Let me know what you think of it in the comments! Always nice to hear from others!

Now it’s time to hop on over to my friend, the lovely Flying Stamper, Deb Naylor. Enjoy the rest of the hop! See you next time!

PPP Blog Hop – No Matter the Weather

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

It’s time for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! I love hopping with these gals and have missed the last 2 because of subbing and not staying on top of deadlines for hopping. But, I’m back and raring to go!

AND…

This is it! It’s the last night of Sale-A-Bration! If you were wanting something…better go order before midnight MDT! 3 Prepaid months of Paper Pumpkin get you a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure! Check it out at juneolsen.stampinup.net

This month’s is called No Matter the Weather and the sentiments are so perfect for helping to calm everyone regarding what is happening on our planet right now. This is an amazing kit! Every time I think they can’t top a month…they do!

Here are the cards the way they were designed…ok, with minor changes not worth mentioning:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love the cards as they are so much, that I was really struggling with coming up with an alternate! And, as always, for my Paper Pumpkin Club I use only the extras and the stamps. They aren’t so sure they want to cut any cards…so I keep it simple and add some cardstock for a base and only what’s in the box and attempt to use ink colors that I know they will have from previous kits. Some of my members only do Paper Pumpkin.

I was looking through Paper Pumpkin Fan Club and the SU Demonstrator facebook pages to see if I could get inspired…there were some, but still nothing came to mind of my own creation. Then I had a youtube notice on my tablet from a Lisa Curcio as something I might like…and I did! She was teaching how to braid a card and I thought that sounded interesting. I watched, I printed out her template, and away I went! She made it so easy and it looks so cool! Love new techniques!

Here is my creation…

1585698749335.jpg

Oh, and I used another favorite technique…masking. I masked the galoshes so that I could put the grass around them.

While working on this today, we have had grawple, snow, rain, and an earthquake…yep…No Matter the Weather… 🙂

That is it for me tonight! Enjoy your evening as you hop on through with Terri Takashige

PPP Blog Hop – Something for Everything

Howdy Everyone!

Welcome to the delayed December Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop where we share our alternates for the the latest kit. We delayed it due to all the holidays. We are showcasing the December Paper Pumpkin kit and the alternates we created early this month and then will showcase the January one at the end of the month. I love the inspiration that I get from these talented ladies! Join us for a fun hop with tons of ideas to turn your Paper Pumpkin kit into more than you thought possible!

I was excited to get my December kit…Something for Everything with 13 sentiments! That is amazing! All sorts of possibilities! I started off by creating the original cards designed for the kit. I typically make 1 of each to show at my Paper Pumpkin “Taste Testing” workshop where participants can come and make 3 cards and see if they like Paper Pumpkin. It’s a fun time!

I always make 1 of each of the designed cards. Here they are…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was an awesome kit that needed very little extras added. All I did was add some extra cardstock in Shaded Spruce, Grapefruit Grove, Old Olive, and Terracotta Tile for card bases and backdrops.

I made 6 alternates and they will be featured this week in 2 posts. Here 3 of them and the first is my favorite alternate. It will be the alternate that my Paper Pumpkin Clubbers make. It’s my first easel style card. I needed to use only the extras from the kit and the ‘skeletons’ because I have a number of Clubbers that make all the cards as is before we see each other to make alternates. That is how excited they are for getting their kits! 

1578349580163.jpg

Besides adding the cardstock I also used the leaf punch to punch out a gold leaf that I cut to place 1 leaf below and 2 above. I also used the dog punch to cut the gold hearts out of the rest of the sticker page. Gotta love the ‘leftovers’ we can do so much with!!

And these are 2 other cards that I came up with…

I did end up punching out some leaves and sprigs from the back of the card that I stole the front from. Those 2 punches come in very handy quite often!!

Now on to Terri Takashige’s Blog to see what fantastic alternate she came up with! Enjoy!

PPP Blog Hop – Winter Woods

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

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:

1572390608720.jpg

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!

MVIMG_20191029_172243.jpg

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.

SEASONAL LAYERS DIES  seasonal leaves 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.

July PPP Blog Hop – On My Mind

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

It’s time for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop with our July kits…On My Mind! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and this blog hop is to share 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. I love hopping with these amazingly creative ladies! So, let’s get started…

I went camping and took my box along with me. The only “extras” I brought were different sized blocks, the larger ink pad, and some scissors. Everything else was in the box! Therefore, my alternates had to be made with what was in the box! 

Here are the original PP designed cards…1564356000023.jpg

And here are 2 of my alternates…I do like to do things wonky sometimes. 🙂

1564356048480.jpg

1564356024483.jpg

I have 2 others that are not quite finished that I will post later. Due to so many family members visiting right now, my Creation Studio is currently being used as a guest room. When I get them finished, I’ll post those as well.

For now, that’s it…time for me to get back to the family fun! Please click the Next button and hop on over to Terry Takashige to see what fun she had with her July kit!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop A Little Smile

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

It is that time again…Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop…where we get to show you the alternates we made from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! And this month’s kit is truly Ah-mazing!

It is called A Little Smile for a reason…we can hand out the sweetest cards for any occasion…with tips at a restaurant, when you see a sales person stressed out, a friend needing a pick me up…whenever it seems like the right time to brighten someone else’s day! Trust me, it brings a smile to your face as well!

1561487125191.jpg

AND, it came with this little case to carry the cards in so that they don’t get destroyed in your purse!

1561487471516.jpg

So, that is what came in the kit, I used the stamps, ink, and embellishments to decorate one of Stampin’ Up!’s mini pizza boxes. I hadn’t used any of them yet and wanted to make something 3D for a change of pace. With it being summer, the beachy theme was perfect for a little treat box! I added some other ink colors to this as well…it needed a pop of color for those coral and starfish stamps! 🙂

1561486163040.jpg

The sparkly sand dollar is my favorite embellishment in this kit! There are also some sparkly starfish that are pretty, but if they were in a more realistic color, then they would have also been a favorite. Still using them, of course, just loving the sand dollars the most!

I also decorated the sides of the box because, well, why not?! Love the Calypso Coral for the coral! WOW, such a perfect pop of color! I also used the Sahara Sand for the sand dollars, but stamped them off before putting them on the box! That helped make them lighter and closer to realistic. Don’t ask me why I was hung up on realistic with this kit…it’s just one of my idiosyncrasies, I guess. 😛

1561486241663.jpg

I have to say, I am pretty pleased with the outcome and may have to make a few more of these boxes. Then I need to bake and put treats in them…hahaha, just kidding, chocolate will be way easier since baking is not a favorite past time of mine…cooking, yes, baking, not really. I’ll let my son do the baking. 😉

Below are the supplies I used and the link to my online store. Plus info on next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit…another one you Don’t want to miss!!

Next up is Darla Roberts, my friend and SU leader! Enjoy her creation and the rest of the hop!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Hugs from Shelli

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o
Howdy Folks!
Guess what time it is?! Blog Hop time with the fabulous ladies of the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities group! We are bringing you Paper Pumpkin Alternates for May’s kit called Hugs from Shelli. Shelli is the Founder of Stampin’ Up! and she helped design this month’s kit. I loved the original cards so much that my alternate uses ink colors, stamps, and some twine from the kit, but I did not alter any of the items from the kit.
I used this card for my Paper Pumpkin Club, which is where my subscribers and I get together once a month and make our kits and I share an alternate project and all the supplies for that project with them. They have asked that I only use the extras from the kit because they like to make the cards from the kit as is…so, that is what I do.
This month, I was inspired by the flowers and soft colors and this is what I came up with:

1559016208158.jpg

I started with a base of Early Espresso, used 2 pieces of the tissue paper that was in the kit and after adhering, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtles Embossing folder. Then I cut a piece of Pool Party and embossed it with the retiring Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I distressed the edges with the Early Espresso ink pad. The ‘Hugs For You’ is from the included stamp set and stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla in Early Espresso and distressed as well. I like distressing because it helps frame things in. In this case it also went with the worn look of the card. If you have been following me for awhile you will notice that I do distress quite frequently. After the stamping, I used the Tailored Tag Punch to cut it out. I then used a strip of burlap ribbon and made a bow from the kit using the Petal Pink twine for the bottom of the tag. The tag was raised with dimensionals. And, of course, 3 pearls were added to give it the final touch.
I am pleased with the card and the ladies loved it when they came for our Paper Pumpkin Club on Saturday. If you are in the Whitefish area, please feel free to join us! We have a grand ol’ time!
