Pretty Cards and Paper International Blog Hop for September

Lisa Henderson card Cards demonstrator Designer Series Paper monster bash paper Playful Penguins Stamp & Create Stamp & Create with Lisa Stamp and Create with Lisa Stampin' Up! Stampin' Up! Canada stamps


Welcome back!  Today I am taking part in the Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop!  This team of designers try to focus on one pack of paper to give you lots of ideas each month.  Now this month is slightly different--because Halloween isn't celebrated internationally, each designer chose 1 of 2 different paper packs--but trust me, you won't be disappointed with the inspiration!

I chose to use the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper:

Keeping in mind that not everyone celebrates Halloween, I chose to work with the two scroll patterns, and actually came up with a coordinating card set.  The scrolls also coordinated best with the Playful Penguins stampset, which I have been featuring here all week!

So, to get to the cards.  What can get further from Halloween then the sentiment "Always by Your Side"--perfect for an anniversary!

Aren't those two penguins adorable?  And look at the gorgeous scroll paper!  I loved it so much I couldn't stop and came up with 3 alternative cards:

Aren't they sweet?  Make sure you check out the projects from the other designers on the team--these are some seriously talented ladies!
