Flowers Forever!

This is the last few days of the March My Pumpkin Challenge....Say it With Flowers
For my sample this week I wanted to use the "hello sunshine" stamp from the kit and I thought it needed a sunburst. I pulled out my Kinda Eclectic stamp set for the sun and the butterflies. I usually try to only use what is provided with the kit, but I needed the sun! 

Last week I did not have a moment to post my sample but you can see it below. We had two snow days due to a spring blizzard and then I caught some weird bug that is going around. I really like the Basic Black card stock with the flowers from the kit, I think it makes them pop!  
I hope you had fun with this kit. I think there was so many fun alternatives. If you have a moment visit the My Paper Challenge and share your creations or leave with some inspiration!

Flowers For All!

I changed it up this week! On my Pool Party card stock I stamped the pretty rosette all over using VersaMark. I kind of made my own Designer Series Paper. Then to add some color, I stamped the rosette in Blackberry Bliss on the washi tape tag (Included in the kit). I also roughed up the edges of the Pool Party card stock and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I also sponged the Pool Party card stock lightly all over with the remaining ink on the sponge so it looked a bit antiqued. I thought the leaves were pretty and thought they could stand alone without the flowers on this card.

What have you created with this kit? We would love to see what you are making! Please visit the My Pumpkin Challenge for inspiration.

It's Flowertime!

We have another round of Say It With Flowers this week over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. This is such a pretty kit, I probably said the same thing last week. Speaking of last week, I cut a 3/4" strip off of one the card bases for my project. This week, I used the cut card base for my sample. You can see below, my shortened card base. I adhered a strip (1 1/2") of Gold Glimmer Paper to the inside of the card base so it shows through the front. Then, I placed the gold spiral flower and thinking of you banner to over hang a bit so it balanced out!
We love to see what you are making! Be sure to share your samples over at the My Pumpkin Challenge!

Say it With Flowers!

Welcome to the March Paper Pumpkin Challenge. Can you believe it is March already? I can feel spring in the air, although I bet one more snowstorm sneaks in before Spring officially arrives. Springtime makes me think of flowers which of course is perfect for our theme this month, Say it With Flowers! The February Paper Pumpkin kit was so beautiful. I love it all, plus they included such pretty envelopes! Be sure to send those lovelies out, the recipient will feel glamorous opening it.

For my Challenge samples I try to change it up using the items included in the kit. This week, I cut 3/4" from one of the card bases and adhered it the right edge of the card base as shown above. Then, I rounded the corners. Then I embellished with the flowers and stamps from the kit. Not much change but I like the pop of color.

Be sure to visit the My Pumpkin Challenge for more inspiration and to share your creations!
