Oh Happy Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back today to share 2 cute cards with you.  The card that was in my head did not come out the way I wanted … seems I can’t manipulate a stamp on paper like I can in my head! lol  So the first card I’m sharing is actually the second card I made.

If you remember the Paper Pumpkin cards I shared yesterday …

Well, I took the parts of 2 of these cards to reconstruct “my alternative”!!  I started with a Whisper White card base and added a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock after embossing it with the Subtle embossing folder.

I then took the bright and fun card front from their “Your Amazing” card and added it to my card front … I did put a piece of velum behind it, this was included in the kit.  I thought it looked a bit like a rainbow of different colors of course, so I added the clouds from the “Hey” card.  Here is what I came up with …

It’s on the simple side but it’s Oh so colorful and looks like a whole lot of fun!!

My second card is part of what I had in my head when I was thinking about what alternatives I could do with this “colorful” kit.  I knew right away that I wanted to use the unicorn from the “Leave a Little Sparkle” for my alternative … the bright colors in the kit was a perfect pairing.

I started with the bright card base from the “Hey” card and then cut the base of the “Your Amazing” card (above) and added it to the front of my cardbase… this is where I stamped my greeting …

Oh my gosh … my granddaughter is going to LOVE this card!! To highlight the beautiful unicorn, I colored his mane in multiple colors and then added Wink of Stella. Oh how I wish this would have shown up on the picture … it is amazing!  To finish off my card, I added those cute little embellishments that were in the kit as well.

I love playing with these kits and seeing how well they pair up with other stamp sets … don’t forget, you get a stamp set in each kit!  These are exclusive to the Paper Pumpkin kits.

Hope I’ve added a little more fun and color to your day today. If you would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin and give it a test run, I have the links listed for you below.
