PPP Blog Hop Beary Comforting

Paper Monthly Blog Hop

Time for this months Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop w my fellow Stampin buddies! We hope you join us on the fourth Tuesday each month to see all the inspiration we share from the current kit. As you hop along you will see alternative ways we have used the kit to share more ideas you too can create using the monthly kit.


I wanted to give my card a fun and cute background with the designer paper that was included in the kit. 

So fun playing with the new Blending Brushes! I started off by arranging my cut up strips on the layer.


For my card this month using the kit I just added a few products.  I thought the layer needed some fun paper added to it. So, I used the paper in the kit and cut up strips to add to the layer. I love the end result!

I even added some Wink of Stella to the strips, the ears and the nose to jazz it up!

Enjoy your next stop along the hop to my friends Janey’s awesome blog for more inspiration from this months kit!

See you next month for our next hop!

Flowers for Every Season Suite

The Mini Catalogue Inspiration

Flowers for Every Season Suite

Long before it was a Covid-19 thing, stampers were masking – in a fun way!

Crafters make masking cool and I’m excited to share this simple and useful stamping technique with you. This card also features several new products from the gorgeous Flowers For Every Season Suite.

Masking is a simple technique that blocks off areas of a project to create white space. It can create a faux layering effect or highlight an area for a greeting or focal point. Masking can be loose and artsy with torn edges or precise straight lines or shapes depending on what you use to create your mask.

I hope you enjoy this card that shows the beauty you can create with these lovely new stamps, ink, and paper!

Make it a creative day!

Sticky Notes for masking

TIPS: Sticky notes are ideal for creating torn, punched, or die-cut masks because they are thin and the sticky section helps hold them in place temporarily without damaging your paper or cardstock.
