Well…it all started with our club swaps last month. Marylou made this beautiful card using the Starburst Technique, that I’d wanted to try but hadn’t gotten around to.
So this morning I dug through my tutorials and came up with a couple of cards.
I’ll be the first to admit this is a strange mixture of colors! But I like to step out of my comfort zone once in a while & I think it’s happy & it works! This was one of the free “Prize Patrol” items I won at convention: Flowerpot DSP!
Stamp Sets: Trust God, Bordering Blooms
Colors: Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4), Pink Pirouette (5 3/8 X 4 1/8)
Now, this one I really like!! I’d like to say that I meant to make the bottom crooked, but well, I was stampin’ in a hurricane. That’s my excuse! That’s another wonderful thing about my “hobby”… you can totally stamp, cut, & glue without electricity!! The flower is made by punching 3 flowers with my Pansy Punch, making 5 cuts down the middle of the petals, sticking a brad with a candy dot in the middle, then scrunching it up a little.
We’ll be making this card at club this weekend…assuming we have club! It’s all depending on these 2 hurricanes…I’ll keep you all posted.
Gotta hurry & post this before the lights shut off again!
Have fun making your kits this month! The next Paper Pumpkin Party (where you’re invited to bring your kits over so that we can make them together) will be Sunday, August 3rd. If you’d like to join us, just click on the Paper Pumpkin Picture on my blog & give it a try!
I’ll leave you with a picture of the “Party Girl!”
Here’s a few different ways you can make your May Paper Pumpkin kit:
This kit is very simple & cute! Comes with the banner stickers and a Happy Birthday & Father’s Day stamp. I added some Rich Razzelberry to jazz it up! Makes a great masculine card!
Here’s the next card…
The kit also contained these candy dots & some twine. And… a couple of small gift cards:
Simple & fun!

We did have to cut out bunny, but that wasn’t so bad. She’s popped up using a dimensional.
One more project:
Found these cute little buckets on Pick Your Plum, & I couldn’t resist! Perfect for holding all your essentials for your craft table! And, after months of protesting, I pulled out my Sizzlits S Pinwheel Die & found it simple to put together!
