This card and quick and simple but super cute for any occasion! There are no layers, adhesive or embellishments. I took a Whisper White card base and just stamped all over! You can use any colors you want – your favorites, the recipients favorites or whatever you have on hand! I used the Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set – Botanicals For You. I stamped the greeting in Basic Black. The leaves are in Pear Pizzazz and the flowers are stamped in Marina Mist and Watermelon Wonder! You can stamp as few or as many as you wish! I love how big the greeting is because it really POPS without needing to add a layer. I love it!

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!!!!! Here is to a great 2016!!! I thought I would share the December 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit with you today since it is called One Great Year!!! Now you might be a little surprised as the photo above because this is the December Paper Pumpkin Kit on my Facebook Page…..
While I thought this little desk calendar was adorable (check that out here), I just don’t have a need for a desk calendar and so I thought I would create the kit into cards! I was able to get 15 greeting cards out of this kit with all of the supplies. I used my own cardstock for the card bases and an all occasion stamp set but the rest is all from the kit!!!
Here are all of the goodies – Soft Suede Ink Pad, Months Stamp Set which will be great for memory keeping and more, and lots of banners and decorated paper!!!
Here are a few of the cards I created. As you can see some of the cards look almost just like the calendar just without the month on there. I used the gold banners as banner and as strips of gold. I even used some of the calendar pieces on the inside of the cards to write on. I used Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, and Hello Honey for the card bases and since Blackberry Bliss is so dark, I wanted to place a piece inside to write the greeting on. It worked out perfectly!!! I greetings came from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set and Crazy About You Stamp Set.
As you can see I used the backs of the calendars for greetings and such. I used the banners and flowers as decorations. I was able to create 15 total cards from this kit AND I still had Stampin’ Dimensionals, ribbon, and some gold banners left over. Plus, I have the ink pad and stamp set to use for other projects too! I love Paper Pumpkin!!!

I love stamp sets that have images and greetings because you can create a card when you pull out that one stamp set! Embellished Events is one of my favorite sets right now! I love the simple greetings and the fabulous images!!! The wedding bells in the Congratulations card here on the left is perfect for a Wedding, Anniversary, and even Christmas! Of course the photo doesn’t do the amazing card any justice. The circle with the bells and greeting is actually on the inside of the card with the circle cut out of the front of the card creating a peek-a-boo!!! Isn’t that cute? Oh and you see that fabulous bow on the banners! You can create that with your oval punch! Yep, that’s right! Just 4 punched ovals and you have that fabulous bow! Curl 2 of the ovals and adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensionaland then cut little V’s out of the other 2 ovals to create the tails! I put an Antique Brad in the center but you could use any type of Brad or Ribbon or even a cardstock loop! Precious!
Of course, flowers can be used for ANY occasion, at least that’s my moto because I LOVE flower stamps! These flowers are perfect for a Thank You, Birthday, or Just Because Card! I love how these flowers are super cute and bold and easy for coloring with your markers. When you color your stamps with you markers, you can have multiple colors like the Thank You card here on the right! If you feel like it took you a long time to color the stamp and it may have dried, don’t worry just huff on it! Don’t blow on it but instead huff (like when you eat something hot and you go ha ha). I hope that makes sense! There are many other images in this stamp set too! Check out this post for more samples! I hope you try out some of these card styles and even this stamp set!!!
