This month on our New at SU Blog Hop we are celebrating Moms, Dads, Brides & Grads!!! Lots of great spring events coming up! Good to have these on hand for whatever comes down the road! You'll get some great ideas here!
Here's my card:
I chose a generic "congratulations" card because I think it would work for a wedding, anniversary, Mother's Day, maybe a graduation of sorts.
This was created with the lovely Daffodil Dream/Daffodil Dies Bundle from the January to June 22 Mini Catalog! Fortunately these products are carrying over into the new Annual Catalog! I absolutely love it! They are perfect images for coloring with our amazing Stampin' Blends!
And it's simplicity works well on the Heart & Home DSP! I wish this would continue! So versatile!
Sentiment is from Happy and Heartfelt. It's cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies! It's all finished off with the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon & the '21-'23 In-Color Jewels!
Be sure to hop around to catch the other great creations! You are sure to find something perfect for your occasion!!! The list of our blog hop is below!!! Enjoy!

I can't believe we are already getting our spring on & talking about Mother's Day!!! Now I know it's a month away, but crafting needs to start early! So on this month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop you'll get some good "girlie" ideas-and what's more girlie than moms-and what's more moms than Mother's Day!
Here's my card this month:
Hope this inspires your Mother's Day creativity! It's also a lovely girlie card for any sentiment-just change out the sentiment! Girlie to me means colorful & flowery & pretty! And I think this card qualifies!!!
Sharon's blog is up next on the hop! Cant wait to see what she's designed for us! Simply click her name here or the icon below-then keep hopping around! Lots of great girlie stuffs to see this month!!!

Here's another card:
These both use the Daisy Lane stamp set, and the second uses the Daisy Punch. Both are going buh bye! So sad! This has been one of my faves forever!!! I'm also using the retiring 2020-2022 In-Colors! This Bumblebee will be sorely missed by me!!!!
However, most products used are also retired! Here's what I used-PLUS the retiring In-Colors! Copping to retired ribbon but it's in the In-Colors so I won't be using it much soon!
You are now ready to travel through the rest of the Retirement Parade! You won't want to miss any of the other "last chance" products we've loved and collect the fabulous ideas shared!

We know that many subscribers are waiting on their kits. While we are waiting we are doing a Kit Reunion this month so you will see ideas from various past Paper Pumpkin kits. We are getting busy with the Paper Pumpkin stamp sets and kit leftovers that we have on our shelves. Hopefully this will inspire you to tackle some of your older kits too. You might also see some Beyond the Horizon projects, it is sure to be a variety of projects to delight you!
Well, I was one of the lucky ones who received the kit on time!!! Woot woot!! So my card is actually an alternative from the brandy new March Beyond the Horizon kit!!!! Here it is:
This month's kit has a beautiful new and EXTRA stamp set!!! There are some very pretty flowers included! I so wanted to play with that stamp set, so I've used it here in my card! I do try hard to use only items from the kit! The only non-kit item I used are the Layering Circles Dies and of course some of the ink colors! That really cool ribbon is included! And so is that beautiful leaf die cut! It's a great kit!!!!
Now hop over to June's blog to see which kit she is using! Did hers come in or is she enjoying one of our older kits? Just click on her name here or the icon below to find out! Enjoy the hop!

This month on our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop we are exploring our favorite bundles! I have quite a few, but my current "most" favorite is the On the Horizon Bundle. This is actually part of the New Horizons Suite which has some DSP to die for and some other cool elements! It can be found in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog!
Here's my card:
Here's another one with a different piece of DSP. Same basic layout but a very different feel. Just has a bit of grass from a die cut is all I really added. And the fence is embossed.
These cards literally took no time to put together yet they look like so much!!!! That's the beauty of the suite! You NEED this one!

Welcome to this month's Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are sharing some fun ideas from our February kit called Safari Celebration! This is a fun kit! Check out our alternatives!!!
Here's my card:
As usual, I try really hard to keep the alternatives to the materials within the kit. I think it's important to feature what fun can be done with only the kit materials! While it is fun to pull in all our other materials, I like to think of the kit as a "grab-&-go" experience! That way if you go on vacation. or the doctor's office, or waiting in the pick-up line, you can use all the materials that are self-contained! Right in your little Paper Pumpkin box!
I kept the leaves the focus of the card. It totally changes the tone of the kit! Although I do miss the fun animals!
Here are what the original designs in the kit look like:
So cute right? I have so many more ideas running in my head!

Here's my card:
Now this girl here is from Cape Cod, so anything ocean or nautical really gets my attention! And this Oceanfront stamp set is the vision in my mind 24/7!
Now I've been working hard on my simple stamping. I'm a very clean & simple stamper anyway-clean lines r us! But simple stamping is a bit difficult for me. I feel like I'm not putting in the effort! lol Well this stamp set is simple stamping at its best!!!! I really added so little because I simply let the stamps & ink take the lead here!!!
Gotta decorate the inside:
Other items used in this card are the stamp sets Special Moments & On the Horizon, and the Pebbles Enamel Shapes. That's it! Simple Stamping!!!!!
