Sweet Posies 1

Hi Friends!  Happy Monday!  Here’s a pretty burlap bouquet to start off your week!  It’s made with some goodies from the October Paper Pumpkin, can you guess what those items are?

Sweet Posies angled

The little burlap bag was cut in half, then lined with the Tangelo Twist sequin trim.  The clothespin and the “sweet” stamp ~ all of these items are from this month’s Paper Pumpkin!  Lots of fun stuff in there!

Sweet Posies InstaThe Pansy Punch and the Petite Petals Punch made quick work of the bouquet, with a single sequin in the centers.  I scrunched up the Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist card stock after punching and then pulled the petals forward with my bone folder.

Fab bestFabulous is what YOU are!  Thanks for stopping by today to see what’s going on at Pretty Paper Cards.  I appreciate each one of you taking your time to join me!

Today’s card is a stepped up card from the July My Paper Pumpkin Kit.  It’s called Big Wish and it’s a great kit.  It came with these darling silver stars and Pool Party hearts (love!), and the grey striped sticker that I used at the bottom of the card.

Fab Pot leavesCombined with Blackberry Bliss, these stars and heart look gorgeous!  I can’t get over how much I’m loving Blackberry Bliss.  The My Paper Pumpkin kits are so versatile.  You can make the projects as is, and/or use the goodies inside on some of your own cards, etc.

Pumpkin for Dads!

Father's Day envie

This is a great Father’s Day card!  And, it only took me about 10-12 minutes to put together!  I’ve been so busy lately I forgot to play with my Paper Pumpkin Kit for May.  Yesterday my husband said, “We need to send my dad a Father’s Day card,” and I knew just what to do!  I quickly grabbed my Paper Pumpkin,  did a ~whish, swish, whish~ just like on TV, and showed him my completed card.  He was shocked that I could make such a nice card in such a short time!  I love it because now it’s done and I don’t have to worry about it.  I’ll pop it the mail tomorrow and it will arrive in plenty of time!  Yippee!!

Father's Day2Don’t you think it’s cute?  You get everything you need in the kit, including a little ink “spot” with the perfect matching ink color for the card.  The Candy Dots on each side of the sentiment really brighten up the card.  At first I forgot to put them on…here’s the card without the Candy Dots:

Father's Day no dotsIt looks very good this way too, but I think the dots make it really pop.  It was so nice to make a card and not have to think about what to put where.  Paper Pumpkin comes with everything, including the embellishments (always my favorite part!).

Happy Day!

Happy Day 1bHappy Day to you!  Thanks for stopping by today!  This darling card is made from some of the supplies from my first My Paper Pumpkin Kit and a few other fun things.  If you’ve signed up for My Paper Pumpkin you know that the first kit you get is this one.  FYI, as of June that will be changing and you will get that month’s kit as your first one.  So I thought I would pay a little tribute to this kit.

Happy Day 2It comes with all the materials you need to make four cards ~ and they are nice cards.  For mine today I stepped it up a bit by adding a Strawberry Slush flower punched with the Pansy Punch, and a Daffodil Delight flower punched with the Petite Petals Punch.  Here are all four of my cute cards:

Happy Day 4

Did I mention it only took me about 30 minutes to put these four cards together?  Wow!  I’m really loving My Paper Pumpkin.  If’ you’d like to get a wonderful project on your door every month or just want more information on My Paper Pumpkin, CLICK HERE.  I’d sure appreciate it if you would designate me as your demonstrator when you sign up!
