4 Different Cards -> 1 Stamp Set -> 1 Paper Pack

I love getting the most from a paper pack. With that in mind I decided to pick a cute CTMH stamp set called C1505 Pun Fun Occasions which is available as well as paper pack X7165B For Always. If you know know I love puns! I also tried to have fun by making it simple cards with a cute stamp set with a more elegant paper pack. I could have been a bit more creative with it but I wanted fun fast cards that anyone can make with black ink, paper from the kit, flowers and ribbon. These items are things many can grab from their stash.

All the cardstock back round papers are cut 4" x 5 1/4". The patterned back round paper is cut 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".
#1. So I chose the color Honey paper for the back round of the lemon stamp "pucker up".

Colored the lemons:
with Spectrum Noir CT3 and the glitter part is colored in with Zig Wink of Stella Brush 050 GL Yellow
I then mounted the 2x2" stamped image square onto a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4" Honey CTMH paper from the paper pack.

I then added CTMH black grosgrain ribbon with a bow and a yellow flower I purchased from hydrangeahippo on Etsy.
 #2. My next set is ubber cute!!!! It is with the stamp "let's hang out" and the paper color is Lagoon.
As you can tell I had a hard time trying to figure out what to color them in with. So here you can see I used Spectrum Noir BT5 and the Zip Wink of Stella Brush 102 GL Silver.
Mounted the chevron paper design on the back round paper.

Then added random blue flowers, CTMH black grosgrain ribbon and a bow.

#3. Is the stamp "you rock" with a really cute rocking chair. I decided to use the Ruby cardstock that came with the paper pack. The white cardstock is 2 x 1 3/4". I colored it in with by CTMH Ruby Z2429 $5.95 that comes with TWO pens. I used the darker of the two alcohol marker and the Zig Wink of Stella brush 060 GL Brown
I again used the black CTMH grosgrain ribbon with a small piece under the random flower.

 So I just adore "just because". I stamped the image on a 1 1/2 x 1 1/2" white card stock with a 1 3/4 x 1 3/4" Slate cardstock. I colored the wings of the bee with Zig Wink of Stella Brush 999 GL Clear. The black is colored in aslo with the Zig line 010 GL Black and the yellow also the Zig line too 050 GL Yellow. Yes I love these pens! You get the glitter, pen and no dry time in one!!!

Then the patterned paper is adhered to the Slate cardstock and used Stickles Yellow to create a flight pattern from the Bee in the upper right hand corner across the card.

Last but not least added some flowers in the lower right hand corner.

Hope you enjoyed my 4 cards from one Close To My Heart stamp set and one CTMH paper pack! There are still pages I have not used in the kit! So I could make another set of cards easily!
