July Paper Pumpkin Wish card

This card uses mostly items included in the July Paper Pumpkin kit.  I did use the Endless Birthday Wishes photopolymer stamp set for the birthday cake and stamped it in blushing bride ink.  All other items and ink used are included in the kit.   Hope this inspires you to add your own twist to the kit.  If you aren't already a subscriber you can get half off the first two month' skits for a limited time when you sign up.  Ask me how?

Work of Art flower card

I was inspired to make this card after seeing a video byBrenda Keenan from Keenan Creations.  It uses the art philosophy stamp set which has no flowers whatsoever.

Here is a photo of the stamp set.  I used  the little swish next to the sentiment You are a fabulous work of art to make the petals and the leaves.  The solid dot was used to make the flower center.  Colors used are blackberry bliss, mossy meadow and hello honey along with Whisper white.  The DSP for the layer is from the Moonlight DSP paper stack.  The sentiment is from a retired set but you could use any sentiment on this card to fit most any occasion you need a card for.  Other products used are the scalloped oval punch and the extra large oval punch.

I hoe this inspires you to look around at your stamp sets and see what you can come up using your stamps in new and innovative ways.  Thanks for stopping by.

Petite Petals awesomeness card.

This card uses the starburst technique (I used retired DSP but you could use the Moonlight or All Abloom DSP paper stacks) and the new photopolymer stamp set Flower Patch for the sentiment along with Petite Petals and Pictogram Punches for the flowers.  The flowers are cut out using the Petite petals punch and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.  I used the Stampin' Blendabilities markers to color the rhinestones in the center of the flowers.  Cardstock used is very vanilla and wisteria wonder.  Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to look.

Sweet baby Abby screen card

This is my take on the screen card.  I did use a retired stamp set for the background stamping and the scalloped edge punch is also retired.  The remaining products used are all current.  The base card is coastal cabana.  The background is stamped on very vanilla with blushing bride as the layered piece.  I cut  out the letters with the new little letters Thinlits dies.  It is recommended you use waxed paper the first few times so the cardstock will release more easily.   I also used the Apothocary Accents framelits to make the sweet baby label.  The onsie and baby buggy were stamped using the Something For Baby stamp set and matching Baby's First framelits.  The adorable little bunny, baby shoes and Sweet Baby sentiment are from the Baby We've Grown stamp set.  The background is stamped using the retired stamp set itty bitty bits.  I love how this turned out.  I hope it inspires you to make one of your own.
