March Paper Pumpkin


Here's my take on the March Paper Pumpkin cards.  I got ideas from a couple of other places.  I saw where someone had inked the wood greetings, and I knew I needed to do that!  On Shelli Gardner's blog, she had used the gold envelope liners as a DSP, and I did that as well.  The next thing I want to do is cut apart the letters to make new words.  Such a fun kit!  I can't wait to see what I get in the mail this month!

Easy coloring

I am not really one to color images.  I'm way too impatient, plus I'm not very good at it!  I love that the Happy Watercolor set lets me stamp a line art image without having to color it!
The card base is Gumball Green, and the top piece is Very Vanilla.  I stamped the flower image in Early Espresso then added Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Midnight Muse.  The dot image is stamped in Gumball Green.  Add the chevron ribbon and sentiment, and you're done!

Punch art sun card

This one of the cards that we made at my workshop last week.  I just love the sentiment!  The card base is Pool Party.  The grass is Wild Wasabi cut with the fringe scissors.  To make the sun, I  embossed some Summer Starfruit cardstock with the Big Shot and the Distressed Dots embossing folder.  Then I punched out a 1 3/8" circle.  The rays are made using the banner punch and Sweet Sorbet DSP.  Then I added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Purple butterfly

I stamped the Swallowtail image onto Smoky Slate cardstock using VersaMark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I watercolored the image with Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant inks.  I added a paper clip with Wisteria Wonder ribbon then adhered it to a Wisteria Wonder cardbase.

Cheers!

My friend Kristy was kind enough to give me a container of In Color decorative pieces, so I wanted to use them right away.  I started with a note card and Kristy's favorite stamp set: Cheers to You.  I stamped the drinks, layered on the washi tape, stamped the sentiment and added Pistachio Pudding decorations.

His and her valentines


I made the same valentine for all of the kids this year.  The girls got the version at the top, and Daniel got the bottom one.   Both cards feature a heart embossed with the Decorative Dots folder and an arrow made of washi tape.

Ray's valentine


Ray loves puns, so I had to get the Crazy, Mixed Up Love stamp set!  The lava lamp is cut out with Chalk Talk framelits, and it's layered over Real Red Coredinations paper embossed with the Hexagon folder and then sanded.
Happy stamping!
