July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives
Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing “APPT” Monthly Blog Hop! The PPX Crew has joined up with some additional Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to give you even more amazing alternatives with the Paper Pumpkin Kits. We blog hop on the first Friday of the month with alternate projects from the prior month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. We are all using the current month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit and Stampin’ Up! Products. I’m Linda Cullen from Massachusetts and you are visiting my blog Crafty Stampin’. At the bottom of the blog post, you will find a list of all the participating blog hoppers so you can move along from blog to blog and see all the fantastic projects.
My alternative to the July “Fun in the Sun” kit I focus on the silhouette boat, and palms in the background. I started with a Basic Black Cardstock card base to help focus on the boat & trees. I really think this makes the sunset “pop”.
I used the strips from the envelope for the background.
I altered the panes from the kit a bit before attaching them to the card. For the top panel with the sky – I added Daffodil Delight Ink with Sponge Daubers to soften the contrast with the black background. For the boat panel, I cut off the white border along the top.
I used Dimensionals & Mini Dimensionals to create a shadow line between the layers.
The sand layer is its own die cut from the kit. A added the die-cut crab & 2 shells. The greeting is from the kit, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with a banner from Stylish Shapes Dies.
I finished the card off with multiple Pool Party Glossy Dots Assortment.
I hope you liked my projects. Be sure to follow along with all the other Blog Hoppers. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
