December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives Part 2 & PPX Blog Hop

LOTS OF PUN ALTERNATE CARDS – PART 2 OF 2 & PPX Blog Hop

I’m honored to be part of the PPX crew, which is a super talented group of demonstrators who share Paper Pumpkin alternate project videos with our customers each month. Each month my subscribers receive 6 videos of alternate projects for that month’s kit, in addition to my regular alternates. In addition we offer this PPX Blog Hop.

CARDS
I really liked the designs printed on the inside of the envelopes that came in the kit. Why hide them? I took the envelopes apart and turned them into backgrounds. While I’m going outside the box, how about turning eggs into flowers? And who doesn’t love google eyes?

I have printable instructions and more photos and ideas below.

My collection of cards created from the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit.

 
I heat embossed the words in White embossing powder for the words.


The Stitched Rectangle dies really step up this card design. I don’t know about you, but these dies are a staple in my craft stash. I actually have 2 sets lol.


Send this card in a matching envelope using the same envelope the background was cut from.

 
Everyone loves googly eyes lol. Added them for a little extra fun on the toast. I also used Genial Gems for extra accents. They matched the paper perfectly.


Who knew eggs would make such pretty flowers? I used the Bone Folder to curl the edges of each flower to make them pop.

   
The greenage was punched from the Stampin’ Up Sprig Punch.

The Bumble Bee Trinket is the perfect finishing touch to complete the card .
