August 2021 Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop


Hello everyone, and welcome to the August 2021 Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop! This month featured the gorgeous Hope Box, inspired by Stampin' Up! CoFounder Shelli Gardner. Below, you can see a project I made using some leftover pieces of the box and at the end of this post, you can view a list of others who are sharing ideas too!

For my alternative project, I used pieces that were intended for the Hope Box itself. I put some strips of Seal down and layered in the flowers and butterflies. I then used Dimensionals to pop up the tag and trimmed down the sentiment to fit on the front of the card!

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

Here's another look at the front, I leave all the colors and intricate details of the cut outs!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Below, you can view the Blog Hop list. Happy stampin!
