Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Bouquet of Hope


Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop featuring the Bouquet of Hope February kit.  Our team has made all sorts of alternate projects to use your kit in fun and creative ways - we help you think of all sorts of design possibilities outside of your Paper Pumpkin box!

I designed 2 different cards using parts of the Bouquet of Hope kit.  This card uses the Merry Merlot card base.  I cut it apart and used the back half trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4" that is then embossed with our Ornate Floral Embossing Folder.

I stamped the bouquet in Memento Tuxedo Black.

These are the Stampin' Blends colors that I used for the bouquet.

I colored the image, and then trimmed around the image with my paper snips.

Here are the cards that are made as the Bouquet of Hope kit was intended.

This kit came with 3 card designs, 3 of each design, and coordinating envelopes!

Here is my next card design.

I used the front of the card base and cut it down into 1 x 5 1/4" strips.  This is on a Merry Merlot card stock card base.  The Basic White layer is embossed with the same Ornate Floral embossing folder.  I punched the Story Label punch on a scrap of Merry Merlot card stock, I cut it in half and framed it out to the left and right of the sentiment label.

The sequins are part of this month's kit and the black satin ribbon is from last month's kit and added a perfect touch for color coordination!
