Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Sending Good Thoughts


Hello and welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop for the Sending Good Thoughts July 2022 Paper Pumpkin. Below are the card designs from the kit designers.  Each of our blogs are presenting alternative designs for this kit.

I had fun with the sail boat stamp and creating an ocean and sky scene.  I stamped the boat with Basic Grey Stampin' Pad on Balmy Blue card stock.   Then I fussy cut around the sail boat. 

The background layer is Balmy Blue card stock.  I embossed this layer with the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folders.  They look great for one amazing ocean and sky scene.

I used sponge daubers to highlight the embossing.  On the Splatters I applied Basic White Stampin' Pad with the sponge dauber.  On the Stripes embossing I used Balmy Blue Stampin' Pad.  I painted Wink of Stella Glitter Brush onto the sails so that they shimmer like moonlight reflecting down on the sails.  I also used the sponge dauber to apply Balmy Blue around the sentiment layer.
The Adhesive Backed Stars add more sparkle to the evening sky!
