Cheerful Daisies

Moody Mauve is one of my favourite New In Colours.  For my card today I added Bubble Bath to the Moody Mauve for the daisies.

Here is the front of the card with the gold centres, made using the Gilded Leafing.

I used an embossing folder for the background white piece and cut the Moody Mauve die cut piece apart to put the leaves behind the greeting.

The inside has a piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper that matches the colours in the card front.

PPP Blog Hop - Welcome Inn


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the June Paper Pumpkin kit "Welcome Inn".

These are the original projects:

These are my alternate projects.

For this alternate project I used the card front from the kit and cut it smaller so that it would fit into the embossing folder. I lined up the image with the embossing folder and put it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine. I love how the detail pops out! You could also use the Designer Series Paper if you want to save your card base. I have added a Boho Blue cardstock mat to the navy card base. I used the 2 pot negatives and added a small piece of Designer Series Paper to the backs and then fussy cut them out with my snips. The flowers and blue leaves are die cut using the add-on Welcome Inn Dies (#163192).

This alternate uses the Designer Series Paper, cardstock, the Welcome Inn Dies (#163192) and Stylish Shapes dies.

 The supply lists can be found near the bottom of my post.

So Sorry Cheerful Daisies

Cajun Craze is one of the colours that I don't always reach for, so I decided that I was going to make a card with that colour!  Then I looked for a package of Designer Series paper that had that colour in it!  So I found my Fresh as A Daisy DSP and went to work.
I found a sheet with both Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock, so those became my card colours!

 The inside has a piece of Pretty Peacock and a strip of the same pattern Designer Series Paper on the left side.
