PPP Blog Hop – Celebrating In Color

Welcome to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop featuring the May Celebrating In Color Kit. I'm so happy you're here! There are lots of great alternate project ideas to share with you with this fun kit full of all the new 2022 – 2024 In Colors and cheerful greetings. If you haven't opened your kit yet, take a look at all the wonderful alternate projects in this blog hop for inspiration. Then open your Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit and start crafting whether you make the projects as shown in the kit instructions, a project inspired this blog hop, or a one-of-a-kind project of your own. And most importantly, have fun!


Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the May 2022 Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kit includes contents to make 10 cards, 10 gift card holders, or a combination of both cards and gift card holders. I'm excited as I always need gift card holders. Or you can use the contents of your kit and your own imagination and creativity to come up with some unique, one-of-a-kind projects. No matter what you create, I have a feeling you'll have lots of fun with this latest Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Here are my alternate cards. For this PPP blog post, I challenged myself to make 2 different cards using "throw away" pieces as stencils. It took some thinking "outside of the box" to create these, but I'm happy with the results.

The photos below show how I made each of my cards.

The Stamparatus was very useful in holding my stencil and card stock in place while I applied the In Color ink to each of the 5 spaces using Sponge Daubers.

I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment.

I cut the inked & stamped card stock to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Basic White layer measures 3 3/8" x 4 5/8". Basic Black layer is 4" x 5 1/4". Basic White Thick card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.


I used the piece left over from punching out the large banner die cut as my stencil for the next card.

After applying the ink, I removed the stencil, then cut along the straight lines of the large banner and adhered it to Basic White card stock measuring 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" on long side.

  1. Mary, your cards are fun! I love that you used daubers for the background in those three distinctive colors. Both cards are so cheerful. Enjoy your day!
