The Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin kit for February 2021 was a fun kit to create alternative cards with. The above card is the only one that I made the way the kit was suppose to be made. I know, surprise, surprise, surprise!
This is what was included in the kit. You had enough supplies to create 9 cards. You could definitely make more than 9 if you cut up some of the card bases and used the stamp set. I did a combination of both.
I have to say, the two cards that have the strips of the different pieces of papers are my favorite. I cut up two card bases, the Merry Merlot flowers and the Just Jade stripped, and used the Bumblebee pieces that were included in the kit. The kit came with 3 Bumblebee pieces, so I only had 1 left after I did the first card (top right). So, I cut the piece with stripes of paper down to 3 3/'4" x 5" and added a layer of black cardstock. That way I could use only one piece of the Bumblee, which I put in the center of the paper.
The bottom left card is a layout that I saw online. I stamped the image in Memento ink and colored it with my colored pencils. I tried to do the same colors as the flowers that are in the bouquets include in the kit. The top left card is the same layout that I did for one of my cards at my Holiday Extravaganza in September.

On the top right hand card you will see that I took the gold doilie and turned it over and used the white side. I didn't want the cold color on this card, but loved it as white. The bottom left card I added a layer of Merry Merlot to a Basic White thick card base and cut up one of the Rococo Rose card bases to put on top of the Merry Merlot.
On the bottom right card I added the coordinating Flower and Field designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. This card I did see online and it reminded me that we had the coordinating paper. I loved it so much, I made it mostly like the creator did, but changed it up a little bit. I don't remember who the creator was as I forgot to write it down
I still had some leftover pieces that I could have made more cards with, including one of the Just Jade card bases. I ran out of time to create anymore while I was working on them. I kept the pieces so I can always go back and play later.
