July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

July’s Paper Pumpkin kit had a nautical theme – seagulls, ships, messages in a bottle – how fun! I chose to do more of an abstract type of alternative – I simply used one of the background types of stamps and some masking paper to create a swirl of color. I stamped my sentiment onContinue reading “July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative”

Christmas Banners Card
