Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop - No Matter the Weather



Hello There!  Welcome to this evenings Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop and THANK YOU for hopping along with us!  The March kit is TERRIFIC and you're gonna LOVE all of the inspiration!

 


I have two project to share with you tonight!  One is a simple card and the other is a SUPER FUN 3-dimensional creation!  I had a lot of fun creating with this set!  This just might be a FAVORITE kit!







My FAVORITE project is my 3D creation!  I used the enclosed acrylic block to make this cute framed art.  First I cut one of the cards in half, put the block on top of it and traced around it with a pencil.  I cut it out and stamped the sentiment with Memento Black ink.  Next, I attached it to the back of the acrylic block attaching it with glue dots, placing them strategically behind the rain boots and grass.  Next I attached the rain boots with dimensionals.  I colored a piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark So Saffron Stampin' Blend Marker.  I also colored a couple of threads of White Flax Ribbon with the same marker.  I slipped both ribbons and a piece of the twine that is in the kit underneath the boots, wrapping them around the block and tying them into bows.  Last, I added a few raindrops just above the boots!  I gave it as a gift to my husband today and he LOVED it!




My second project was created with the left over piece of card that I cut for the background of my block.  I stamped the grass with Garden Green ink, mounted it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock then onto a piece of Coastal Cabana.  I attached it to a Whisper White Note Card with dimensionals.  Last, I attached the rain boots (these cute boots are in the kit!), with dimensionals and tied a bow on one boot with Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding.  SUPER CUTE and SIMPLE!!

Tuesday's Tip - Faux Mother of Pearl

Good morning everyone!  I hope this day finds you all well!  A quick reminder...today is the LAST day of Sale-A-Bration!  Now a good time to stock up on things!  I'm gonna place my last SAB order tonight!

This is a really fun technique...I just know you'll love it!  I can't wait to experiment with some different colors!  I hope you'll give it a try!




Here's the actual card!  I used the Beautifully Braided stamp set to stamp the floral image in VersaMark and heat emboss it with white embossing powder.  The band at the bottom is punched with the Braided Border Punch.  The sentiment is stamped with the same stamp set in StazOn ink and is punched out with the Timeless Label Punch. It is attached with dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and a bow tied with Flax Ribbon to finish it off.











Here are a couple of other examples using this technique.  I think using grays would give it a great metallic look!  OH...I need to play some more! 

HEY...THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Stay WELL!  Hoping creating is as calming for you as it is for me!  LOTS OF LOVE!
