March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating 7 years.... and so am I. 
I signed up this month 7 years ago and have loved it ever since. It's nice to share my anniversary with Paper Pumpkin each year. 
This year Paper Pumpkin released it's monthly box  with a special surprise, an extra free stamp set. 
It's a beautiful stamp set and I couldn't wait to get started. I have created 3 alternatives with this months Paper Pumpkin. I have detailed what I used for each card. All the products are listed below.

Also there is another VIDEO I have up with my daughter. We did a Paper Pumpkin box reveal. 

Card #1:
My first card is playing with the flowers in the stamp set. 
I stamped each one in Memento Ink and colored with my Stampin Blends Markers: Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo. I then fussy cut them out and added them to some cute simple squares. I used the 3rd largest stitched square and the 6th largest scalloped square for layering. I love how simple this cards looks. 

Now this card is my favorite. I am obsessed with these boots. I especially love the rainbow colors I chose. The list of colors I used are Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue, and Highland Heather. I also used Basic Gray for the outline of the boots. I used the 2nd largest stitched rectangle for my cut out. I'm going to make a lot of these cards and send them out in hopes of brightening someones day. 

This last card I was a little conflicted. I just couldn't make up my mind on what to use. I ended up making it one way but showcases another way in my video. The Smokey Slate paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and embossed. the two embossing folders I used were the Tin Tile 3D and the Subtle 3D. I also used the 4th largest stitched rectangle. The Stampin Blends I used are Poppy Parade combo, Dark Soft Suede, Light Smokey Slate, Light Flirty Flamingo. I also used Old Olive to stamp the bushes on top of the boots. In the video I use Poppy Parade Stamp for the coloring of the boots. Great card, love it! 

Hope you enjoyed!
