You're Udderly Fantastic!!

Check out the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Isn't it awesome?!!! So many possibilities, especially for using pattern paper...HOORAY!!

 I just got this adorable Over the Moon set and simply had to use it!! Actually, I stamped a full sheet of thick whisper white cardstock with these adorable cows then cut them out with my Scan N Cut. Simply add some quick coloring (I used both Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Blends) and you have a barn yard full of fun images to pop on a card!! Check out more wonderful samples from the rest of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge design team HERE.

Thank You Dear Friend

I forgot to share this with you last week, my card for our weekly Facebook challenges. The challenge was to create a thank you card using any of the In Colors. So are you shocked?!!!!! I USED PURPLE!!!!! Yes, that's the new Purple Posy. I put a drop of reinker on the opened lid of my stamp pad and watered it down before smearing it onto a piece of watercolor paper. Once it was dry, thanks to heating it up with the heat tool, I stamped the sentiment from last month's Paper Pumpkin stamp set. The birds are also from the stamp set, stamped and cut out. 
Summer is the perfect time to kick back, relax, and enjoy yourself. You may even be planning to slot some time for creativity. Paper Pumpkin’s got you covered.
