Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Grown With Kindness

Welcome back to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators collaborating to bring you some fantastic alternate projects that you can make using the contents of the February 2019 kit, Grown with Kindness. After you read my post, be sure to click on the Next button below to hop on over to Darla’s blog to see her awesome alternate!

For my alternates, I used two methods: the kit supplies exclusively and introducing a few additional ink colors. The first alternate I made is the You are beautiful card with the large labels as the main focal point. I limited myself to only the supplies in the kit, and I think it turned out decent.

I wanted to use the included stamps to jazz up the background. I layered several labels together to create my focal point, and used the included black baker’s twine to wrap the sentiment a few times. I finished it off with a little bling from the included rhinestones.

The card base I used was the solid black base, but I knew I wanted a clean, white background on the front of my card, so I turned it inside out. I used one of the succulent/cactus photos on the inside so that I would have a light area to stamp a greeting or write my sentiments to the recipient. I thought this would work really well, and I was really pleased with that idea!

For my second alternate card, I decided to introduce a few more colors to stamp some of the fun patterns. I included Mint Macaron, Lemon Lime Twist, and Basic Gray. I also decided to cut out the two coffee cups in the foreground of the same image I used on the first card. I used the included glue dots to stick down the cactus cup and popped up the succulent cup with the dimensionals I had left over from the kit. I love how the popped up coffee cup looks.

Take a peek below at a few more photos of my alternate projects and some close ups of the details. At the end of this post I have a video showing how I created these alternate projects. You can also check it out directly on my YouTube channel.

Something Spooky This Way Comes

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! This month we are popping up because there is something spectacularly spooky here! The September ’18 Kit, Frights & Delights! This special edition kit is perfect for the Halloween season! It came with three adorable little goodie bags and tags that allowed us a vessel to fill yummy treats and pass around.

Check out my previous post and coordinating YouTube video for when I made these adorable bundles of sweet goodness!

The little bags were way too adorable, and I wanted to save as much of the materials as I could to make them all! But that didn’t stop me from making two fabulous alternate CARDS to share with you today! Two different styles, one is more “vintage-antique-shabby-chic” and the other is “bright-and-fun”! Which style is your favorite?

Don’t forget to check out my tutorial video below to see how these cards came together. Click on the NEXT button to hop over to Candy’s blog where she is going to show you her delicious project!
