PAPER PUMPKIN POSSIBILITIES BLOG HOP-GIFTS GALORE


This month's Paper Pumpkin kit-Gifts Galore-is so much fun! Took some thinking to get an alternative going, but once I did get going I couldn't stop! lol Seems to be the way!

Here's the featured project:


Here is what the original designs in the kit look like:


This is such a cute kit. I will admit I'm not always good with the crafty kits. I do prefer the cards-only because I don't really have much use for them. But they really are so well done! This one I can see giving some cute Christmas gifts! But the alternatives are cards! This kit makes GREAT cards!!!!


I try to keep the materials to those included in the kit, but had to break "out of the box" a bit this time!  Mostly cardstock for the card bases. But I did try to keep it mostly to the kit.  It just shows the versatility!

The 2 following are a couple of fun folds! The nice big images are perfect for that!!! A bit of fancy cutting & you're good to go!! Not much else needed!



Now hop over to Terri's blog & see what she came up with!!! Simply click her name here or the icon below! Then keep going! Can't wait to get these all sent!!!

NEW AT SU BLOG HOP-SNOWFLAKE WISHES

 


So this month we are focusing on Holiday cards! My Christmas card is a "chilly" reminder of what's to come! lol

Here it is:

So this is a fairly simple card yet I think it packs a punch! The "snow" at the bottom is masked off with post-it notes. Three colors-Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and   Night of Navy were then blended on using the Blending Brushes. That piece was then cut into 3 simple strips & attached. Easy peasy!

Cue the Adorning Designs Decorative Mask! I simply went over it with the darkest color-Night of Navy-to create the 'snowstorm"! I did try it first with the            White Pigment Ink but it just didn't show. Funny how the navy snowflakes make a white landscape, but it's all good! lol

That piece was then cut into 3 simple strips & attached. Easy peasy!




I made a little "snowstorm" inside! lol

The sentiment from the beautiful Snowflake Wishes stamp set was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. Add one of the                   Wonderful Snowflakes (SU please continue these into the Annual Catalog!) and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels & it's done! The twine is from the                Flower for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack in the Annual Catalog.  The tag is cut using the Tailor Made Tags Dies.

I also did one on a white background. They are both nice but give a different "feeling"! Comment below which you prefer!

ICS BLOG HOP-PEACEFUL PLACE

 

This month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop is celebrating our             Christmas creations!!! 

Now is the time to get your Christmas cards done! We will share some great cards with you here so be sure to hop along & check them all out!

So let's get to it!

Here's my card to share:

Now I was very ambivalous about this Peaceful Place Suite when I first saw it. Loved it, but wasn't sure about grays & blacks on Christmas cards. But, I loved it so had to have it! And wow did it win me over!                                              Especially the Peaceful Place 12x12 DSP and the Cabin Dies! I've used this way more than I ever thought I would! It's just so pretty! And once I got going with the Christmas thing, it gave me that warm-cozy-on-a-snowy-day feel!  

This is a spanner card. I thought it looked kinda cool with the cabin in the "background"! The only real stamping on this is the "For You" sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin Stamp set.  Isn't it fun how it stands up? 

This sentient is heat embossed on the acetate strip! And the beauty is it folds perfectly flat and fits inside a standard envelope!!!

The trees are cut using the beautiful 12x12 Silver Foil sheets! 3 different shades of silver that are absolutely gorgeous! I also used the same to cut the frame with the Rectangle Dies. I thought it looked like you were looking out a window!

The back is the place for your greeting and/or personal message! I will admit to using the stamp set here from the Peaceful Christmas October Paper Pumpkin! I absolutely love this stamp set, and it just seemed to fit this piece perfectly! It's the only pop of color! lol It has the best greetings in the best sizes! It was designed to go with the Peaceful Place Suite! I know the refill kits are out, but unfortunately the stamp set is not included! The supplies, however, make beautiful cards with stamp sets you already have!!!!

So next up is Darla. Hop to her blog by clicking her name here or the icon below! Say hello! Then keep going! And even tho this is a Christmas hop, it's November-so Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours! See you next month!

Happy Stampin'!
