    Pick of the Crop, June Paper Pumpkin alternatives.

    Pick of the Crop Here are a few alternative ideas from out first look at the Pick of the Crop Paper Pumpkin kits. This first look was super fun. I would love for you to join my Pumpkin Whispers… a Paper Club, on facebook, so that you can join in the fun. This first idea is a slight tweak. I fussy cut the awning off and added it back using dimensionals. Second thing we did was add some of the lavender. One piece to be exact. Yes, I did split it up but fussy cutting off one section to stretch the piece. Here was the full on alternative. Using a…

    First May Girls Night Card using Flirty and Daffodil.

    First May Girls Night Card Here is the feminine or flower card. This being the First May Girls Night Card. This one being the more complicated one. Only really because it is a fun fold. You would have made two. Note that the top card has two flowers. That is because I did not want to waste ANY of those beautify flowers. The flowers are die cut out using the DSP. Let me tell you there are a TON too. Ohh, and all of the supplies are using the Hues of Happiness suite. I love changing the online card up just slightly. This one I used the background die twice…

    Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold, Birthday card

    Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold I am loving this Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold. This card idea was from the Culver Library Class. Those lovely ladies LOVE fun folds. I especially like doing easy fun folds! This one uses NOTHING extra. But ohh, doesn’t it look fancy!! This Stamp set Friendly Hello is FREE with a $100 purchase (there is DSP too!). I would say this could be a simple stamping card, but there are just too many die cuts on it. Starting off with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. That is where the scalloped rectangles come from. That little leave die is from the Forever Flourishing dies. Think greenery on that…

I have tried Flirty Flamingo with Real Red for this card. However, I have also used Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler. One more combo that I need to try is Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. Which to me is the obvious color combo. Although it really would not have a ton of contrast. Wanting to show you a little how the fold works. Yes, there really is a lot of cardstock and DSP…
