November Paper Pumpkin

Hi Everyone,

I was so excited to get my November Paper Pumpkin. It came with enough stuff in the kit to make 8 Christmas cards and 12 to 24 tags, depending on how you decided to do them.

Check out the Paper Pumpkin page to see how the kit is 'supposed' to be put together.

I decided to change it up a bit and came up with some different ideas for tags and cards.

This card uses only supplies from the kit except for the white &  Lost Lagoon card stock.  The little silver dots in the center of the snowflakes are the centers of the silver circles from the tags.

I decided to do separate tags and then I'll get 24 rather than 12. They are similar to the original design, but with enough of a twist so I can call them my own.

I get so excited each month to see what goodies are in the little orange box.
If any of you would like to find out more about the paper pumpkin, just click the link on the side or email me with any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm getting ready for the Thanksgiving festivities and so I made a few cards for some family & friends. I had to wait a bit to post them so they could be delivered.

The first one is using the retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! named Autumn Days. The sentiment is from the October Paper Pumpkin.

The second card uses the SU die called Autumn Accents. The background is textured using the woodgrain embossing folder.The sentiment is from Gratitude for Days stamp set.

Check out the Paper Pumpkin page. I added some new examples from this month's paper pumpkin.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Be blessed.

Nov 13 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

Greetings! No, you are not reading this wrong. I was working on my November 2013 Paper Pumpkin kit. We had used this kit in my last class and followed the directions, but sometimes it's kind of fun to strike out on you own.

My thought was to have a Christmas tree and use the stars as garland. I used the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set from SU, but it looks like I could have used a bigger tree stamp!

My poor little Christmas tree is almost buried under star garland. Oh well, it gave me a chuckle! It reminds me of my Christmas tree.
