Hi there! It's Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop time, where we show you some different ways to use your monthly Paper Pumpkin kit! This month the Paper Pumpkin kit gave us a sneak peek of the new 20-22 In-Colors to be released very soon in the 2020 Annual Catalog!!! I am in love with these new colors!!!!

Here's this month's alternative:

This month I stayed totally with the kit. I didn't use any outside materials. I wanted to show ways to repurpose the items included. I like to do it that way-so you can see that all you really need IS the actual kit to create far more than they show you! The little 3-legged thing on top of the sentiment is just a cute little stamp to add some richness to your design. Mind unfortunately smudged a bit here with the Wink of Stella-OK so maybe one item that's not in the kit! lol

 kit materials!!!! It simply has more layers. I find the simplicity of the PP cards nice-especially when you need something quick or want something easy to take with you. But I tend to be more of a "layered-card" kinda gal! lol I love texture & layers. Not fancy, just what I consider "more complete".  

All I did here was use one of the card bases, then took 2 other card bases & used them as the mattes for the rainbow piece.  The green behind the cloud is cut from the end of the matte piece. Now don't worry because I cut up a card base! I will use the extra parts in many ways! I used the cloud piece as my sentiment piece! Just a little extra added bling!

Hope it inspires you to create an alternative card to the kit cards. Then feel free to share it with everyone you know! its your talent-flaunt it!!!

If you are not working already with a demonstrator & would like to learn about these new In-Colors, feel free to email me!!! I'd love to share all about them!!!

For the month of May our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop is creating Masculine Cards in Black & White!!!! Masculine cards are sometimes the toughest.  There are always lots of flowers and pretty things in our catalogs but what do ya do for a guy?? No ribbons or stuff!!!

Well here's what I came up with!

I love this card!  After I completed it-before the retiring list came out-I realized that just about everything on it is retiring! :( I love this stamp set!  
Animal Outing is the first set I got from the current Annual Catalog! With it's adorable coordinating Animal Friends Dies.  So I'm a bit attached! Animals I think are good for guys? Yes?

And the Crackle background stamp?? How could they do this to me? lol I use this background so much! It will remain forever in my stash!!!

The sentiments are from Label Me Bold. My go-to for dudes! I think here they make the perfect embellishment for this card. No baubles or bling! While I have many dude friends that prefer baubles & bling, generically I think guys not so much. I simply cut out the sentiments & added with Stampin' Dimensionals. I think it adds the perfect amount of detail & texture.  

Oh, I must add! While I'm terribly distraught to lose these stamp sets to the Next Chance List, I'm super excited about the offerings in the new 
Annual Catalog!!! I can't wait!!!!! I'm sure those will ease my pain! lol

So it's a quick easy card! I believe that works well for the guys! Now hop over to Terri's blog & see what her black/white guys' card looks like! Just click on her name or the icon below.  I know you won't be sorry! Then keep going! Feel free to leave a comment!!!

Happy Stampin'!
