Alternative Paper Pumpkin Thing...


Hey Crafty Friends!
I was invited to create a couple alternative projects for the "A Paper Pumpkin Thing" blog hop using the May kit called Hugs from Shelli. 

This was probably my FAVORITE EVER & I have been a subscriber since day one so that's a lot of kits! 
I'm a sucker for vintage flair & this definitely has it! I have a very over the top type project to share along with a simple card so let's start with the card...

I have been waiting to get my hands on the Free as a Bird stamp set & now I can't put it down!

It pairs so beautifully with the Stampin Blends markers.
 QUICK TIP- If you want you image to pop even more carefully color around your image with a light color, like Pool Party, after you fussy cut or die cut an image.

I did have to fussy cut the birdies but I enjoy doing that so it wasn't a big deal.

Ok now on to my next project...

Yeah I kinda love it!!!
 I did use my blends to color the bird nest & another bird from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Here is a little video if you're interested in seeing how it came together.
Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to visit all the blogs from the list below to see more fabulous projects with this months Paper Pumpkin kit!

Purple Posy Beauty!

Hello Crafty Friends!
Once in awhile I make something that I am just completely in love with & this card was one of those things! 

Oh Purple Posy... be still my heart!!! I can already tell this color is going to be one of my favorites.
I love that sentiment from this months Paper Pumpkin kit!

I even made a quick little video while I was putting this card together.
