August Paper Pumpkin Bold Botanicals

Bold Botanicals, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #paperpumpkin, #boldbotanicals, #stampinbj.comI was thrilled with the Paper Pumpkin kit for August!   It's called Bold Botanicals!   Check out the cute images and greetings. . . and I can guarantee you, there is more to come with this awesome Paper Pumpkin kit!

There is one image in particular that I love. . . it's the corner image that I used in the background.  It may be hard to see - but just trust me.  I don't ever remember a stamp that does the corner and leaves an oval in the middle for this beautiful centerpiece! 

Bold Botanical, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' up!, BJ PEters, #paperpumpkin, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.comI used the Moroccan designer series paper as the inspiration for the color scheme.  I just altered the green. . . the designer series paper has Emerald Envy, I substituted Mint Macaron.  With Dapper Denim and Crushed Curry, it is a great color combo that I want to use again in the near future!

Paper Pumpkin Lovin' Spring

Lovely Little Wreath, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #stampinbj, #bjpeters, #paperpumpkinThis is one of my favorite alternate cards from the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin - Lovely Little Wreath.  Especially after today - May 6 when the thermometer topped 90 degrees!   I had my annual Stampin' Up! garage sale today and got to be outside at least. 

This card screams sunshine - just like the day today.  The background is Subtles backgrounds designer series paper. 

Lovely Little Wreath, Paper Pumpkin, April 2016, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #stampinbj, #bjpeters, #paperpumpkinThe sun was die cut from the sunburst thinlit and then a circle punched out with a 2" circle punch.  I then highlighted it with the Wink of Stella clear glitter brush - sure wish you could see it in person.

Lovely Little Wreath, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, Paper Pumpkin, #stampinbj, #bjpeters, #paperpumpkinI used the leaf die cut from the kit for the leaf image on the bottom.  I added flowers from the itty bitty accents punch pack (still sad this punch pack is retiring).  I like how the greeting turned out - I simply just trimmed around the greeting - turned out super cute!  

Don't forget to get signed up for Paper Pumpkin by May 10 to get this months box of creative joy!

Paper Pumpkin Decor

Paper Pumpkin, January, Cute Conversations, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersCheck out what I made with the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin! - Cute Conversations!   There were a crazy amount of  hearts - 30!   And they were big! 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".  While I loved the cute treat holders that were the intention for some of the 30 hearts, I wanted to make a couple of Valentine decorations. 

I used the Sweetheart punch to get the hearts in this frame.  Oh, and did I happen to mention that the hearts are double sided papers?  One side is striped and the other side is plain - making a perfect little mix for this frame. 

Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersThe background paper is from the Birthday Bouquet designer series paper from the Occasions catalog.  The Mint Baker's Twine came in the Paper Pumpkin kit - as did the pink sequins.
