February Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

Hello stampers,
     Today I'm participating in a Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop with demonstrators from around the world in the Crafty Collaborations FB group. 
     Without opening this month's package Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Flirty Flamingo popped in my head saying "Use me, use me!" so I couldn't disappoint. I started my card with a small piece of Basic White Cardstock that I die-cut using Stitched Rectangle Dies, I also used my Trimmer to cut the same size out of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock. I used Daffodil Delight & Mossy Meadow Ink pads with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo & Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Markers applied directly to the stamps to stamp on the Basic White Cardstock piece, then colored it all in. I did use Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack to color in the frog, it was a lot faster. I attached the stamped image & Flirty Flamingo Cardstock on slight angles & attached them together. For the Daffodil Delight Cardstock layer, I embossed it with one of the new Basics Embossing Folders that come out March 1st, which was layered on a Melon Mambo Cardstock base. Once everything was attached to the card I used the dot embellishments that came in the kit.

     Here are the cards that came in the kit to make, aren't they cute? Really has me thinking about the set in the mini catalog that would match this kit.
