June Paper Pumpkin - Hello to you.

 This little box you get every month is actually quite fun.  This time there was a zigzag background, hello to you, and small heart stamps and 3 diecut hexagons in polka dot yellow, red pattern (self adhesive) and blank white in addition to the base cards and envelopes and a soft suede stampin spot.  The base cards have little hexagons cut that you can punch trhough but I left some of them for a more minimalist look that I liked.  For the one on the left I punched out 2 of the windows, stamped the heart through one and attached the polka dot yellow one on the inside.  Then I stamped hello - stamping off each time to get the gradation and stamped the "to you" on the inside to the right of the heart- you can't see it though.
 I played with the supplies but I really LOVE the square zigzag background so I started to play with that- the card to the left is one I made using just one layer of whisper white and the new in-colors- I did use stampamajig to place the squares- kind of fun card- beach colors- Coastal Cabana on top left,  Crisp Cantelope on right top, Strawberry Slush bottom left and Pistachio Pudding bottom right- HELLO to you is in Baked brown sugar.  I thought about punching out a heart stamped with the red zigzag and putting it over the pistachio square but I stopped myself. I think this would be a great background for lots of punched shapes
This is a variation from above using the the square from this set in Pistachio pudding then stamped the flowers from Summer Silhouette in Strawberry Slush  and sentiment in Baked brown sugar again for a one layer card.  Added little tiny pearls in the center of the flowers - the large one had black stamens stamped first.

I am enjoying these kits much more so than I would have imagined.  I hope you are too.....
