Rainbow Paper Pumpkin Card

I am creating with the March Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! 
This is the first card I made. There are 9 cards, 3 each of 3 different designs. I decided to do all of them a little differently than the way they were intended to be put together.
For some of the cards I am using the stamps that came with the set and for others I am using stamps from my regular Stampin' Up! stamp sets.
The cards were intended to be just the black and white design with the yellow YOU and some added Soft Sky accents. You will see over the next several days that my cards went in another direction.

I used the ink pads from the bright set to sponge color on the front of the card. Although I decided not to use the green from the Brights set, so I used the Wild Wasabi instead because it is brighter.

The "Thinking of" stamps are from the Crazy About You stamp set. That set is a wonderful set with lots of words and so many ways to combine them. It is in the Spring Occasions catalog.

Keep checking back for more March Paper Pumpkin alternate idea cards!

Happy Day,


  1. Found you on Pinterest - this is an adorable card and I love the colors you used. So clever!

  2. Thanks Ariel! And thanks for stopping by to comment. Bright colors are my favorites, I prefer them over pastels, but I have to be careful not to overdue the bright colors. It works really well for this card though.
