Paper Pumpkin Possibilities January Blog Hop Key To My Heart


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities January Blog Hop as we share alternate projects created with the Key To My Heart Kit. Our talented Design Team members are excited to share with you how they have used the supplies in this wonderful kit to create projects to help inspire you to think outside the box. 
For my alternative card design, I decided to pair the Adorable Owls stamp set (Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward) with the supplies in the Key To My Heart Kit. I love the whimsy of this cute stamp set, which you can earn free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order, and thought it would fit perfectly with the pretty Fresh Freesia card base in the kit. Most of the supplies I used came from the kit and I chose to heat emboss two of the images from the exclusive stamp set with Gold embossing powder.

Stamped and heat embossed heart and key images from the exclusive stamp set in the kit, fussy cut
To create this card design, I added the large vellum circle to the center of the card front using several of the Mini Glue Dots from the kit. I stamped the owl image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock and colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers. I then fussy cut the image out with Paper Snips. For the heart shaped lock and key, I stamped the images onto a scrap of Fresh Freesia cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed the images with Gold embossing powder, before fussy cutting the images out. I then used the Fresh Freesia ink spot from the kit with a Sponge Dauber and gently sponged over the the lock and key to add some shading. For the sentiment, I stamped the image using the Fresh Freesia ink spot onto one of the labels from the kit. to assemble the kit, I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the owl, lock and key and attached them to the Vellum circle, with the lock and key placed slightly under each of the wings. For the sentiment label, I attached it to the bottom of the Vellum circle with Stampin' Dimensionals, centering it on the front of the card. For a touch of bling, I added several Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front to finish off the design. I love how soft and pretty this card design looks and how well this stamp set combines with this kit. If you wanted to, you could choose to use one of the sentiments from the Adorable Owls stamp set as an option for this card design.
