Dragonfly Best …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m here to share with you my “alternative” project to the April Paper Pumpkin kit! Hope you all got your kit by now, because the card was created around the “FREE GIFT” that was included in this special kit… the Watercolor Pencils!!

With just a few strokes of the Watercolor Pencils in 3 of the 4 colors included in the kit, you can create a beautiful watercolor background.  They even included the paintbrush! Sweet 🙂  The watercolor paper was also included and cut to size!! All I did was mount it onto a piece of Melon Mambo and then onto the card base (also included).

I set that aside to dry and then cut my dragonfly from the “Detailed Dragonfly Framelits” from a piece of Basic Black cardstock in my scrap folder. Once the watercoloring was dry, I mounted my flower (pretty little embellishment included in the kit) added the dragonfly and stamped the greeting… Also included in the kit!!

So I didn’t have to add much to my card … just 2 pieces of cardstock to create this beautiful card. And at this time of year, I think it’s nice to give a little “Thank You” for all the hard work that some of our teachers do all year long.

Hope you enjoyed, and I hope you have a beautiful day.

Thank you for stopping back to see my “alternative” project from the April Paper Pumpkin kit!

Paper Pumpkin Subscriber Choices …

Simply Sunday: Easter Gifting Ideas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you on this fine day? I’m hoping happy and healthy!

Today I’ve got some fun projects for you and a card! Yesterday I shared the March 2017 Paper Pumpkin with you … today I’m sharing alternative projects. If you haven’t received this kit, or are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber yet, you can sign up at any time, and when you do, you can purchase “past” kits!

I will tell you this, if you purchase the 3 month subscription by March 31st, you will save $4 and receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item!!  Make sure you activate your subscription before April 10th because we’re all excited that Sara Douglass – Stampin’ Up!s CEO has created the April 2017 kit!!

Ok … let’s get on with the goodies! Here I wanted to show you “my” little bunny as followed by kit instructions. These are so easy … so fun and too cute! As soon as they add the refill kit – I’m ordering more so my grandkids and I can make these up!

Here is a photo of all my projects put together! Did you know that the little 3 x 3 note cards fit nicely into the little bag … How cute is that!! A little gift bag with the little bunny cards.  You could make these into “Thank You” cards and give to the host of your Easter dinner. What a cute little gift.

Next, I know many of my customer love their “full size” cards … so here is my alternative to the kit, a full sized card.  The cute stamps used to create that bag … come in this kit! I love the little eggs and the “I’m glad your my friend can be used all year long!

I used the inside bunny ears to create a flower! These pieces are die-cut and already have the adhesive on them so they are super simple to create with.

The flower is adhered to the front of the gift card … the back half is tucked away so I can use that on another card. This section is popped up from the card front.  I used a “splatter” stamp to add a little color to the vanilla and then added a banner greeting. I cut the little bunny tail in half and glued it to the center of my flower.

I must say, this was a very fun kit to play with! If you want to try out Paper Pumpkin, now is a good time.  Just click on the links below for more information or to begin your purchase, or you can contact me and I will help you out.

Thank you so much for spending a part of your Sunday with me.
