October Paper Pumpkin

Did you receive this month's kit and don't you love it!?

Here is the first one I created from the kit:

Everything is from the kit, except the burlap ribbon at the top of the card and the card.

Then I thought...... if you are reading this and didn't get in on the kit, you might like to create one with supplies that are available to purchase, so here is what I came up with:

The card base is Crumb Cake ( 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 ). Cut out a 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece from Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, and Very Vanilla. Using the large leaf from Vintage Leaves and Crumb Cake, stamp onto the three pieces for a bit of texture. Attach them to the bottom of the base cover with a 1/8" edge from the sides and bottom. Set this aside for now.

Cut a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Very Vanilla and run it through the Woodland embossing folder. Then using the Leaves Framelits, cut out three leaves along the bottom. Decide which side you want to show and turn over. Attach a 5 1/2" x 2" piece of acrylic with glue dots, covering the leaf openings. Add dimensional strips to the top and bottom of the acrylic, and the very top and sides of the Very Vanilla. Rub the acrylic with the embossing buddy.

Bring back your card base and sprinkle your confetti across the colored pieces. Remove the backing from the dimensional strips and line up onto the bottom of the card base.

Add burlap ribbon to the top of the card base. Take two of the leaves that you removed from the Vanilla and sponge them with color before adding them to your card. Create a banner from Cajun Craze and a sentiment from Daffoldil Delight. Tie a small bow and add to the bottom of the sentiment.

I am so looking forward to receiving the November Paper Pumpkin kit! Wonder if it will be a Holiday kit, cards or craft???? Well, we will just have to wait and see. You still have time to sign up to receive one, too. Just click on the Paper Pumpkin to the right before November 10.

Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!
