PPP Blog Hop A Kit in Color

Hello there! I'm so excited that you're here!  It's time for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  I absolutely adore this blog hop because I love love LOOOOOOOOOVE Paper Pumpkin!

Are you a subscriber?  If so, YAY!!!  You know how amazing it is already!!  If not, Oh my! Why not?!  You should be! Paper Pumpkin is an amazing papercrafting kit that comes right to your door once a month. It could be cards, or treat holders, or who knows what else! That's part of the fun of it! 

This month's kit is really cool because it features a sneak peek of some BRAND NEW colors in the Stampin' Up Collection!  The kit is called "A Kit In Color".  
Let's take a look at the NEW colors: 

Aren't they GORGEOUS!!! I love em!

My contribution to this month's hop is going to be a POCKET CARD.  I chose this because I thought that the pre-printed card bases from the kit were just perfect for a pocket, and I knew I wanted to use that little die cut "frame" negative piece somehow.  

To start with, you'll want to use Tear & Tape so it holds well.  I ran the tape along both sides and the bottom of the inside. I did both sides so that the card would slide evenly into the middle of the pocket. 

Next, I cut a piece of Magenta Madness Cardstock measuring 3 3/8" x 5". 

**I'm kind of cheating using pre-order supplies. HOWEVER, if you sign up for the Stampin' Up starter kit, you can also pre-order fun new products from the 2020 catalog before anyone else! :-D Trust me, it's worth it!
(Talk to your demonstrator, or me if I'm yours or you don't have one already!)**

I layered on a 3 1/8" x 4 3/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

Then, I carefully trimmed the "leftover negative frame" from the die cut scraps in the kit.  This is the border that's left after you punch out the fabulous "striped panel".  I used liquid glue to attach it to the front of the White Cardstock. 

As you can see from this photo, I stamped "You're Amazing" in the included Misty Moonlight ink and the little orange "rays" are Pumpkin Pie. 

The front of the pocket was created pretty much the same as the kit instruction.

Thanks so much for stopping by today my friends! I'm sure you'll find lots of fabulous ideas to get that kit used up!  Remember: Send a card. Don't hoard your cards! :-D

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!
