The April Paper Pumpkin is super cute and I love the color combination – Crushed Curry and Pacific Point (2 Ink Pads). While I use to have a room in blue and yellow when I was younger, I really haven’t explored that color combination in stamping! It was fun to try something new!! The stamps in this kit included greetings for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and they Hey Dude for Graduation. That is the theme of cards I made too!!! (Makes me really wonder what the May Kit will be!) If you would like to see my excitement when I first opened the kit, check out this video! I enjoyed an evening on the couch working on my Paper Pumpkin and watching Dancing With The Stars. These are the cards I created!
I think the little envelopes are super cute although they would need to go into an additional envelope for mailing. The kit included Baker’s Twine in both Crushed Curry and Pacific Point but I haven’t used any of that yet. It can be looped through the holes in the pockets! I will probably hand deliver many of these because they are mostly Father’s Day and Mother’s Day cards! I love the bow tie look and then the gift bow! Adorable! Since I used 2 bows for one of the pockets, I had an extra belly band so I cut that up for the ribbon tails! 🙂 I just may need the Bow Builder Punch now so I can make more of these!!!
The little flower is super cute and while I could have used it on all of the cards, I held back. 🙂 There is also an “X” or “t”, however you wish to use it, in the stamp set and I have used that with the Sophisticated Serifs Stamp Set to make Monogram cards that say M+R for couple! I love the many uses of this stamp set!
