PPP February Blog Hop Lovely Day

It's time to hop along with the PPP February Blog Hop as we feature alternative project ideas using the Lovely Day kit. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas to help inspire you to think outside the box. 
Today I am sharing two alternative card designs using the stamp set from the kit. I chose to use the Very Vanilla Notecards and envelopes (item #144236) to show examples of Simple Stamping. One of the designs features the beautiful floral image and a sentiment while the other shows how to create a masculine card design using the cake images and a sentiment.
 For the first card design, I stamped the card front with the large floral image using Rococo Rose Classic ink in the center and then stamped the sentiment in the top right corner. I used the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Watercolor Pencils from the Watercolor Pencils set (item #141709) to color the image and then used Clear Wink of Stella over the top to blend the colors for a watercolor look and to add a touch of shimmer. 
To decorate the envelope, I stamped the back flap with the smaller floral image using Rococo Rose Classic ink to create a background pattern. This simple design can be used for a variety of occasions and the floral image could be colored with a variety of colors to change the look of the card design.
 For my second alternative card design, I chose to use Balmy Blue and Pacific Point Classic ink pads to create a background pattern on the card front. Using the 3 lines image, I alternated the direction of the stamp and colors to create a geometric look. I repeated the same pattern with the same colors on the back flap of the envelope to coordinate with the card. For the focal image, I stamped the cake design onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Pacific Point Classic ink and used the 3 line stamp with Balmy Blue Classic ink to color the cake design. I punched out the image using the 2 1/4" Circle Punch (item #143720) and attached it to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment was also stamped with Pacific Point Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I punched it out using the Classic Label Punch (item #141491). I attached the label to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and added two small Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. 
The stamp set in this kit provides so many wonderful options for creating wonderful alternative card designs just by varying the colors you use and experimenting with image combinations. By varying the sentiments, you can create cards for a variety of occasions to send to the people you love.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card designs help you to see how versatile this Paper Pumpkin kit is and provides you with ideas to help you explore creating your own projects.
