Hi Stampers. Welcome to this months Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. This month we are featuring the Hope Box, designed by our co-founder, Shelly Gardner.  This kit makes some beautiful cards, but our purpose is to show you alternative ideas to do with this kit. Follow along and be inspired.

Stampin' Up! Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternatives August 2021 by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Above is a photo of what we were given in our kit.

I used our Mercury Glass Accetate as my card base, 4″ x 8″, scored at 4″.

I then used two of the pieces, from the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin kit, with the gradient colors on it and cut them square.  They were 3-1/8″ wide, so I made them 3-1/8″ tall, too.

Using the Blackberry Bliss ink and the largest stamp, I stamped the sentiment onto the front of my card. Next I added a few of the butterflies with glue dots and added the sequins on top of them.

Inside the card is the other gradient layer followed by a stitched square of Basic White CS. I created this square using the Stitched Rectangle dies by cutting the rectangle first. Then positioning the die where it would make it a square and running it though the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine a second time.

Case Insert:

Did you know that you can keep your Paper Pumpkin stamp sets in the same style stamp cases that our regular stamps come in?  We sell those empty and provide you with the case insert, just for that reason!  Keep yourself organized. 🙂
