One of the cards made at my monthly stamp night
Have you gotten your June Paper Pumpkin kit yet? I'm hoping mine arrives today! Here is the Stampin' Up! video for the kit
Don't watch if you want to be surprised! I'll be making some alternative projects with this kit and will share those with you when I can.

I am in a One Sheet Wonder club run by Jessica Taylor and each month she gives us a new template to use. These are the cards I made today using this month's template. I love the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper, especially the blue and green sheets.
This paper's colors are Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, and Sahara Sand. I punched out flowers using the Blossom Bunch Punch, Flower Fair dies, and Botanical Builder Framelits. Various stamp sets were used for the sentiments and embellishments: Greatest Greetings, Awesomely Artistic, Flourishing Phrases, Birthday Blooms, Rose Wonder, Thoughtful Banners, Birthday Banners for, and Floral Phrases.
4 of the cards are 4x4 cards for gift enclosures. I also used the Layering Ovals framelits, Rose Garden framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, and Bitty Butterfly punch.
One Sheet Wonders are a great way to make a bunch of cards using only 1 sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Paper (or paper you stamp yourself). If you like to hoard your pretty papers (like I tend to do), this is a great way to make cards without using a lot of the pretty paper. I got 10 cards out of that one sheet!
Today is Flag Day and also the US Army's birthday. My husband spent over 29 years in the army and retired in 2001.
Long may it wave!
