Paper Pumpkin Possibilities April Blog Hop Change Is Beautiful

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities May Blog Hop as we showcase the Change Is Beautiful Kit. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team members as they share their wonderful ideas and alternative projects to help inspire you to think outside the box. 
For my alternative card design, I decided to pair the exclusive stamp set from the kit with the pretty Abstract Beauty 4"x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. I created windows using the Picture This Dies to showcase the different images from the stamp set. With just a touch of gold, this clean and simple card design comes to life.

The images in the exclusive stamp set are so beautiful and I wanted to show how you can create projects with it after you have used the supplies to create the projects in this kit. The Abstract Beauty Specialty Paper has such wonderful bold designs and colors and I love how it pops against the Basic Black layer behind the die cut windows. The gold embossed images take this card design to the next level and I colored the butterfly and the caterpillar using a Blender Pen and a combination of Granny Apple Green (caterpillar) and Crushed Curry with Magenta Madness Classic inks (butterfly) to add a touch of color. I kept the embellishments simple by adding the beautiful Gilded Gems to the Basic Black cardstock windows to coordinate with the gold embossing. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore creating your own wonderful projects with this beautiful kit. The exclusive stamp set in this kit will open up new possibilities for creating inspirational and uplifting card designs.
