O Christmas Tree

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another alternative ideas for the Winter Gift / November 2019 Paper Pumpkin. I’ve got to say “WOW” … yesterday’s alternative project made a big hit on Pinterest.  Today I’m sharing the “tree” and have it all decked out for you.

The tag that the tree lays against comes in the kit, I did however stamp it with the cute little snowflakes that are part of the Winter Gifts stamp set.  I cut a background piece in Whisper White and sponged it with Pool Party and then stamped it again with the snowflakes.

I added three strips of ribbon to my background to add some texture and to bring in the color of the tree throughout the card.  These are mounted onto Real Red which coordinates with the Red Rhinestones I used to decorate it.  To add a bit more sparkle, I used the Iced Stampin’ Glitter from the Holiday catalog.

I have several more ideas that I will be sharing with my Paper Pumpkin Pals (PP subscribers with me) using the sled, deer, etc. If you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin through me, I can send you the link to these samples as well as sharing alternative ideas with you when future kits come.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day is a good one.

Simply Sunday: Winter Gifts

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope this blog post finds you well this Sunday. Today I’d like to share with you a pretty card that I created using the contents of the November 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit. Yesterday I shared with you a video on how to create the projects in the kit, and here are the finished projects …

These are so cute and you could actually face the front of a card with these if you are not into tags, or you can take the many, many pieces from the kit and create your own. That is what I’m sharing today, an alternative to the kit …

I took the tag from the “cardinal” and added the snowflakes.  The greeting is included in the set of stamps that comes with your Paper Pumpkin. That is one of the highlights of getting Paper Pumpkin … even after you’ve used all the goodies inside, you have a wonderful stamp set to use over and over again.

The snow flakes have two sides and I chose the side with the silver imprint to add a little sparkle and shine to my card …

The sparkle comes from the self-adhesive sequins that are also included in the kit … they are silver (they also have an iridescent white pack included too) and I love the way the silver sequins picks up the Pool Party cardstock.  Basically, that is all I added to this card that was not in the kit, a Whisper White base and a piece 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pool Party.

It’s fun to create with these kits, and it’s even more fun to do them with a friend. I send out Paper Pumpkin Nights to my subscribers periodically to work on our kits! Wanna join us?

Thanks so much for sharing a part of your Sunday with me, I’ll see you tomorrow with a wonderful Christmas Card I’ve been waiting to share with you.

Have a beautiful day ~
