Paper Pumpkin Possibilities August Blog Hop Hope Box


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities August Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas with the August Hope Box Kit. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to think outside the box. 
The August Paper Pumpkin Kit is so beautiful and it is extra special because it was created by Stampin' Up! Co-Founder, Shelli Gardner. Shelli's kits are always amazing and this one is no exception. Watch this short video to learn more about this wonderful kit.
For my alternative card design, I chose to use one of the gorgeous die cuts in this month's kit. From the moment I saw this die cut, I knew it would look amazing against a Basic Black background. I love how the colors pop and bring the design to life. For the sentiment, I used one of the dies from the Ornate Frames Dies and heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder. This simply Wow card design is so easy to create with the supplies in the kit, combined with Basic Black cardstock and Gold embossing powder.

Sentiment Label die cut with the Ornate Frames Dies
Detailed Die Cut from Paper Pumpkin Kit
This card design is so simple to create and uses mostly supplies from the kit. To attach the large detailed die cut to the Basic Black cardstock card base, I used the Mini Glue Dots from the kit and attached them behind the butterfly bodies and centers of the flowers. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the exclusive stamp set in the kit with Gold embossing powder and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To add a touch of bling, I added the sequins from the kit to the bodies of the butterflies. I love how this card turned out and how vibrant the colors look against the black background. The sentiment is so uplifting and positive and fits perfectly with the card design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to experiment with the supplies in this kit to create your own unique projects.
