Hello and welcome to this month’s Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog hop.  This month’s kit is super cute and beautiful and features a wonderful set of cards and gift box.  Plus the bonus perk of this month’s kit was that it featured our very first distinktive stamp set.  For my Alternative projects I created a fun card and gift packaging.  Here’s a look at my projects.

Here’s a look at this month’s intended projects from the kit.

All Wrapped Up!:  

For my gift packaging I used one of the striped gold and filled it with Hershey’s kisses.   Folded over the top and added one of the background panels from the kit.  I stamped Fore you of this panel using poppy parade ink.  I then stamped three of the roses from the kit in Flirty Flamingo and one each in So Saffron and Poppy Parade.  I then fussy cut them each out. With the three Flirty Flamingo roses I took different sections from two of them and layered them on the third.  I stamped a few of the leaves from the stamp set in mint macaron and cut them out also.  I then added ribbons in Calypso Coral, Mini striped Poppy Parade Ribbons and a little bakers twine I took from my kit.  I placed the ribbon and twin on the tag that I used the panel for and stapled the ribbon on.  Then I made a double bow with bakers twine and attached over the staple.  
Next i added the flowers onto the tag.  I then added some of the leaves around.  To finish off the tag I added faceted clear gems to the center of each rose.  

My Card: 

 For my card I started out with a piece of whisper white cardstock and stamped two of the roses and leaves in on opposite sides leaving enough room between each so that I would have a nice window.  Next I took a circle and traced around that connecting the roses.  With a craft knife I cut out the center of the circle making sure to cut around each rose and leaf that was in the circle.  I took one of the note cards from the kit and trimmed it down to fit behind the opening.  I then layered this panel onto a Flirty Flamingo card base.  I used the same faceted clear gems on the inside of the roses on the card as I did the gift packaging.  
I added a whisper white panel to the inside with one of the roses stamped on the it.  And, then added my sentiment stamped on one of the banners from the kit and added some baker’s twine at the top of the card to finish everything off.
