A previous post showed the Painted Petals stamp set done in pastel colors.

It also looks great using bright colors to match the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.

The first card is features Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi.

How about Rose Red and Daffodil Delight?

The Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper works perfectly with this stamp set.

You Brighten My Day

This is such a fun stamp set. I have seen a lot of cards with the Light Bulb and the Thankful tag. I wanted to create a few cards with the adorable little house.

Here are a few ideas.

A fun idea for those of are that wishing Spring would come soon.

How about pairing it up with the Sheltering Tree stamp set?

And one more to congratulate someone on their new house. The greeting is from the Holiday Home stamp set.

Paper Pumpkin January 2015

My Paper Pumpkin for January is here. Yay! I have so much fun with these kits. There are so many possibilities.

This month's kit is all about sharing love and treats.

One of the things I love about Paper Pumpkin is that you can use it as it is designed or use items in
the kit for creations of your own.

Here are some ideas for using this month's Paper Pumpkin for cards and other treats. Even a home d├ęcor idea.

Here is a Valentine Tree arching over the treats.

The decoration on the jar is exactly what appears on the treat bags in this month's instructions.
It looks really cute on jars too.
How about a jar with Hershey Kisses?

Here are the treats. I used the sentiments and Real Red ink to create banners for the cupcakes and Hershey Kiss treats.

Hugs, Kisses and Valentine Wishes is perfect for the Kiss cookies.

To finish off my creations for this month, I got a jump start on making Valentine cards. Enjoy . . .

Mixed with Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper.

You can stamp on the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon!
Looks perfect in person, a little blurry in photo.
Did you recognize the "LOVE" stamp from Paper Pumpkin 2014?

Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper, a doily and
the beautiful pink twine that came with Paper Pumpkin.
