Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop - My Wonderful Family

Good Evening everyone!  Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  Have FUN as you HOP ALONG!!



I used the Stitched Nested Dies to cut the center of the image part of my card.  I also cut the entire card down to 4" x 5 1/4" to use as a card front.  I stamped the tree image on one of the scraps from cutting the card size down using Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Ink.  The water colored background is created with an Aqua Painter, Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede and Old Olive ink.  The Mint Macaron cardstock is embossed using the Subtle embossing folder.  I added a few of the butterflies that are in the kit, adding some pearls.  The printed piece that I cut out using the Stitched Nested Dies is used as a background for the sentiment which is backed with Linen Thread and Whisper White Flax Ribbon that I separated into strands!  A fun alternative!


I hope you'll hop along with us tonight! 
Up next is Joni at Spotlight Stamping!
