January Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Lori Mueller - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 16 of us in this hop!!! WHOO HOO! I think you love what we've created with the January Paper Pumpkin Kit - HEARTFELT LOVE NOTES - it's soooo cute!



 Here's the HEARTFELT LOVE NOTES kit....


Jan PP

Super cute right? 


And here are the alternate projects I made. An adorable card and matching candy box. 


I used Flirty Flamingo ink to stamp the XOXO's around the outside edge of a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White cardstock. I mounted that on a Basic Black card base and then added the black striped layer that's included in the kit. The white scalloped layer was trimmed down to fit on the front (also included with the kit) and I used Black Archival Ink to stamp the greeting on the vellum heart die that's also included in the kit.


Here's my inside:


I used glue dots to on the vellum heart under the enamel shapes so you can't see them through the heart - pretty clever right?


The die cut hearts below are an elements from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits dies. I added two very thin strips of the champagne foil hearts patterned paper above and below the dies with a strip of the Flirty Flamingo under the hearts. This was all a matter of cutting up what I had in the kit and layering it.


The CLEAR TINY TREAT BOXES were the perfect container to decorate with some of the paper included in the kit and a double bow using the BOW BUILDER PUNCH. I added a GOLD FACETED GEM to the center of the bow.



And here's another great idea for the elements from this kit. I cut the front panel off this one and added a layer of Basic Black with Whisper White on the front to stamp on. The DECORATIVE RIBBON BORDER PUNCH was my choice for the tiny scalloped edge on the top of the insert. I used the dies from the PAINTED LOVE SUITE to cut out a Flirty Flamingo heart and attached it with a couple of the Dimensionals included in the kit. 


There were very few products that I added to these project - almost everything came in the kit. You'll find a list of the extras I added down below.

I always love your creations...and I think you're SO brave for stamping on that vellum! Lol, I'm always afraid I'll smear it before the ink dries :-O Thanks for sharing :-D

Sara Levin

Kelly ~ From to the stamped border to all of the little details, your first card is fantastic. And your punched bow is gorgeous with the color peeking out!
