Simply Sunday … Simply Fun!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back with a fun, quick card that I whipped together using my December 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit! This is really a versatile kit … and I love the die cut card fronts, makes them so easy to pull a card together (if you want to change it up a bit).

I turned the card sideways (as it was designed to be a vertical card) because I knew I wanted to create a “celebration” type card to be used for birthdays or congrats, or just to cheer someone up!

Everything I used was included in the kit except the balloons … I punched out the turquoise one from the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper and created my own Berry Burst by sponging the color onto the White Glimmer included in the kit!! Even the Bakers Twine and banner were included in the kit!

2017 December Alternative Paper Pumpkin Project

Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a cute card that I created with the December 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … now don’t run away just because you are not a current subscriber, there is always something to take away from the projects I share with you.

I began with the pre-cut note card, however, I wanted to create a full card to see what it would look like … I also knew I had a score line that I wanted to cover so I headed to my ribbon stash and grabbed the Lemon-Lime! I thought that would look pretty with my cardstock.

As you can see, I kept the idea from Stampin’ Up! for the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper behind the pre-cut cardstock but did not add the other piece (I’ll show you what I came up with that tomorrow).

Then I simply embossed one of the many greetings included in the December kit and added the butter (stamped in Lemon-Lime) to balance out my card.

Now … take this idea of a die cut image, using one of your many beautiful framelits dies, add your glimmer paper to the background and you have an awesome card! Easy layout … simple to make, and beautiful!!

Or how about ….  

There is always an idea from any of the projects I share … that is my intent anyway.

I love the Paper Pumpkin kits because they are pre-cut and ready to put together, with a little stamping! But you can go beyond what they have made for us.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card share, and I hope to see you back tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping in …

Have a wonderful day!
