PPP February Blog Hop Bouquet Of Hope


It's time to hop along with the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities (aka PPP) February Blog Hop as we share alternative projects featuring the Bouquet of Hope Kit. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas to help you think outside the box with this beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit.
Today I have two different card designs to share with you. One uses products from the kit, including the floral image and sentiments from the exclusive stamp set while the other combines one of the designs from the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (item #155223) with the Healing Hugs stamp set (item #148223) from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. This beautiful paper is a Level 1 Reward you can earn Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration, which ends February 28th. It coordinates beautifully with this kit and offers a variety of designs to choose from.

Merry Merlot Cardstock for Oval die cut with Layering Ovals Dies
Sentiment Label from kit
Small Floral die cut from kit
Card 2
Just Jade Cardstock Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Flower & Field Designer Series Paper Layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Large Floral die cut from kit
Sentiment Label from kit
Both of these cards are simple to create and I added heat embossing to both to step up the designs. For the first card, I heat embossed the floral image from the stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and die cut it with the Layering Ovals Dies. I attached it to the Gold Foil doily from the kit and added it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the label with Gold Embossing Powder and added it across the bottom of the oval with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card I added one of the small floral die cuts to the sentiment label and two of the small Black sequins. For the second card, I used a piece of Just Jade cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper for the card front. I added the large floral die cut from the kit to the top of the card front, at an angle, using Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I used one of the images from the Healing Hugs stamp set, heat embossing it with Gold Embossing Powder onto the sentiment label from the kit. I added the Mossy Meadow Bakers twine to the back of the sentiment label, creating two big loops. I added it to the card front towards the bottom with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added three of the Black sequins for a touch of bling. I love that the designer series paper gives this card design a more cheerful feel that is perfect for a Get Well card.

  1. I love the gold embossing! Beautiful!

    1. Thank you Deb. I thought the gold embossing added a touch of elegance to the design.

  2. Beautiful cards, Tricia! The gold embossing was a nice touch!

    1. Thank you June. I love heat embossing especially with gold. It just adds that special touch to a card.

  3. What a great idea...love the gold embossing for the card front.

    1. Thank you Elizabeth. The detail in the floral image was just begging for gold embossing. I love how elegant it looks.

  4. Healing Hugs is the perfect compliment stamp set to this kit! They go together so well!

    1. I agree Dana. The cards in this kit are perfect for Get Well cards and this stamp set is my go to for creating them.

  5. Both cards are beautiful! I love the "spring" feel to the bumblebee one & I would never have thought of that embossing! It's gorgeous!!!

    1. Thank you Joni. I love how bright and cheerful the bumblebee polka dot paper is and thought it was perfect for a Get Well card. I love heat embossing and the fold embossing for that image was the perfect fit for the gold doily.

  6. Tricia, both of these are really lovely. I love how you added the DSP and the heat embossing.
