August Paper Pumpkin Alternate Idea

The stamp set that came with the latest Paper Pumpkin is just so darling.  Normally I just make the designed projects from the kit but this time I decided to try a some variations.  Here is one I found on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook group that I decided to CASE.

Here’s my card:

I colored the flowers with the Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers and I love how they work on the Thick Whisper White paper.  So far I haven’t had any piling when I go over the same area trying to get rid of markers lines.  I may have to pull out the markers more now that I know this.

Crazy About You

The new Holiday Catalog just came out today (yay!) but demonstrators have been able to order since the beginning of August (one of the many perks to being a demonstrator).  I also have an event called Demos Galore coming up and I’ve been working on many projects to debut there using the holiday products.  Sooooo, I decided to put aside the holiday items today and create a card using a stamp set and paper that isn’t holiday related.  Sometimes I just need to clean my palette so to speak.  🙂
