Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities November Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas featuring the Gifts Galore Kit. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team Members as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to think outside the box.
Once again, Paper Pumpkin has outdone themselves with a simply amazing kit. The cute gift packaging is just what I needed for this time of year to create Teacher Gifts for my son's teachers. So because I was using most of the supplies from my kit, I needed to come up with a different way to create my alternate project. One of my favorite things about each month's Paper Pumpkin kit, is the exclusive stamp set. So, I decided to create my projects using all the stamp images from this month's stamp set.

For my projects, I decided to use non-traditional Christmas colors to create my designs. I wanted clean and simple designs that would be bright and cheerful. I chose to use Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the card base and gift tag to coordinate with the Flirty Flamingo ink spot in this month's kit. For the card design, I decided to add Balmy Blue, Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron Classic inks to go with the Flirty Flamingo and I used both White and Silver embossing powders to step up my designs. For the Christmas card, I stamped the presents with Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Classic inks along the left side of the Basic White cardstock layer and heat embossed the ribbon image twice with Silver embossing powder. I also heat embossed the sentiment and embellished the card with Basic Rhinestone Jewels. For the inside of the card, I stamped the presents along the left side with Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Classic inks and stamped the ribbon and sentiment with Flirty Flamingo Classic ink to complete the design.
For the Christmas Tag, I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder using the sentiment and snowflakes image for the front and the To/From image for the back of the tag. I tied a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the hole to decorate the tag. I love the simplicity of the design and the way the embossing steps up the tag.
