July Paper Pumpkin Alernatives

Greetings Friends! 

Here are some of the cards I made using the July Paper pumpkin supplies; also known as Paper Pumpkin alternatives. 

This Sunday, join me for the opening and creating of the August Paper Pumpkin. You can catch this on my Facebook business page, Stamp with MJ, at 3 p.m. on the 23rd. 

Below are the alternatives that I made.

Throwback Thursday- Baby Cards

Throwback Thursday- Baby Cards

I needed some baby cards so I created these cards out of retired stamps and papers. I made duplicates for card swaps and for my stash.

For both cards, I used the retired Witty-isms from this year's Occasions catalog. 

For the girl card, I used a Whisper White card base & topped with a Mint Macaroon panel that was embossed with the retired Tufted 3D folder. The Pretty in Pink cardstock & DSP is a real throwback. The yellow, So Saffron is current. The sentiment is on a Whisper White Stitched Nested Label diecut. 

The boy card base is Balmy Blue (current) with a Soft Sky (retired)piece embossed with the Tasteful Textures 3D folder (current). The banner, DSP and ribbon are in the retired color, Certainly Celery. 

I hope that you can use the sketches of the general color scheme to make some cards for yourself. 

Happy Stamping, Marilyn

July Paper Pumpkin

 Hello friends!

Here are the July Paper Pumpkin projects that we made at the Stamp with MJ Facebook Live session this past Sunday (8/9). The kit contains 3 each of the postcards (9 total) & 9 tealights plus 9 envelopes. We made the kit according to the directions; which is what you see above. I'll be using these postcards & tealights to make alternatives. Mostly, I send A2 cards (5.5 x 4.25) greeting cards so I'll be posting my creations in a later post. 

Join me for the August Paper Pumpkin FB Live. Order deadline is the 10th of each month, so you missed the August kit, but join me anyway so you can see the value. Sign up now for the September Paper Pumpkin here. 

Happy Stamping! Marilyn (aka MJ)
