Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. This month we are featuring the Poppin' Birthday March Paper Pumpkin kit as we create our alternative ideas to share with you all. You may have just visited Janey's blog or perhaps you are starting here with me. I hope that you will enjoy the projects we have to share with you today.
One of my favorite things about this kit is the stamp set. I just love the mix of sentiments and images for creating fun celebration cards. Rather than using the colorful palette used in the Poppin' Birthday kit, I chose to use the more modern designs and color scheme featured in the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #146277). I also used my favorite Gold Edge cards & envelopes (item #147901) that carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. I just love how versatile they are.
Heat embossing with metallic embossing powders is a great way to step up a card design and I chose to use Gold embossing for the sentiment from the stamp set in the kit onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the 2" Circle Punch (item #133782). I embellished the circle using Silver embossing powder and the streamers stamp image to add a little contrast to the gold and black theme. To create the party hat, I heat embossed the image from the stamp set with Gold embossing powder onto Basic Black cardstock and fussy cut the image. I attached the hat to the card using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. To frame the sentiment, I punched out a piece of Gold Foil using the Starburst Punch (item #143717). To finish off the card design, I added a piece of Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon (item #144129). I just love the bold look of this card design and I think it would be perfect as a special occasion or even as a masculine card.
