Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop - Butterfly inspired


I'm participating in the Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop.  The theme of this blog hop is to use the August Paper Pumpkin Kit as the inspiration for a project. The August Kit was designed by Shelli Gardner (Stampin' Up! Co-founder) and is absolutely beautiful!   The theme of the August Kit is the Shelli Hope Box.  

I didn't have my kit when I created my card, but my mind immediately went to the Brilliant Wings Dies and the Blackberry Beauty Product Suite.

What do you think of my interpretation?

  1. Cut Rich Razzleberry card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Brushed Metallic card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Rich Razzleberry card stock 1 1/2" x 4" and emboss using Typeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.
  4. Adhere to middle of Brushed Metallic card stock using Stampin' Seal.
  5. Wrap ribbon around middle of embossed piece and tie a bow on the right hand side.
  6. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut out large solid butterfly from Rich Razzleberry card stock
  8. Cut out large detailed butterfly from Designer Series Paper.
  9. Adhere detailed butterfly to solid butterfly using Glue Dots.
  10. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  11. Cut Very Vanilla card stock 1" x 2 3/4"
  12. Stamp sentiment using Rich Razzleberry ink.  Cut tag end
  13. Cut Rich Razzleberry card stock 1 1/4" x 3".  Cut tag end 
  14. Adhere stamped piece to Rich Razzleberry piece using Stampin' Seal.
  15. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.

You can find all of the supplies I used for this project at the bottom of my post.  If you missed getting this great kit, there's still time!  Stampin' Up! has opened up the sale of this kit without a subscription until August 31st due to a system glitch!  What a great opportunity to snag more of the kits or to try out Paper Pumpkin for the first time!  You can go to my Online Store and get yours! 

Now it's time to be inspired by all of the amazing projects in the Blog Hop:
