Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Expressions in Color Blog Hop


Hello! This month's Paper Pumpkin kit is the best!!! 

Expressions in Color Paper Pumpkin Kit gives you 9 beautiful cards to create-and coordinates so perfectly with the BEAUTIFUL                                       Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (DSP)

On this hop you will find some amazing alternatives to the already amazing cards from the kit! Always so creative here!  Once I got going I couldn't stop! lol

So here's my alternate card:

I usually try hard to use just the items in the kit but this DSP cannot be ignored! and the stamp set that is included with the kit is super sweet also!

For this one I went a bit old school & actually colored the beautiful vellum flower piece that is included in the kit on the back with my Stampin' Blends.  I used a piece of the DSP as the background. Worst part of using this paper is deciding which side to use! It's all so pretty! But I wanted the flower to remain the focus so I went with a subtle piece! 

The Bakers Twine, sentiment piece, & bling come from the kit! 

Here is what the originals from the kit look like:

And I just couldn't stop! Here are a couple more I did! The second with only kit materials & the first with coordinating product. I really enjoyed creating the alternatives with this kit. The ideas were just flowing!

Happy Stampin'!

This month on our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop we introduce you to the AMAZING new 2021-2023 In-Colors!!!! 5 beauties-Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen! Sound yummy don't they? Well let's get into it & see them in action!

Here's my card:

So many new items from our new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!!                   First, the card is based in the Fresh Freesia! I love this softer purple! it goes well with almost all the other colors!                                                                       The base uses the '21-'23 In-Color 6x6 DSP Pack. Plenty in there to represent all the colors!! It is topped with a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock cut with the new Basic Borders Dies! Love em!

Flowers of Friendship is the bundle I used! It had the amazing                   Flowers of Friendship cling stamp set and the Flowers & Leaves punch!      10% savings on the bundle-just sayin'! So the stems were stamped with one of the images, but the flowers were punched with the punch!

And what about those flowers! They were cut with the oh so beautiful                   In-Color Shimmer Vellum! This is one of my fave products in a long time!!! It is so much prettier in person! And so easy to work with!!!

The insides of the flowers are the Loose Flowers Flourishes with one of the highly coveted In-Color Jewels! And the ribbon is the beautiful                                 Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon. And best yet it comes in all the new        In-Colors!!! Nice & soft & easy to work with! Great for tying bows!!!

The Layering Circles Dies were used to finish the card off with the sentiment!

So I did manage to get all the colors in here! They go so nicely together, and really compliment the older In-Colors!!! You gotta give them a try!
