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.

Playing Around

On Saturday, I went to a garage sale and bought some vellum paper with snowflakes on. I had to try it out, so I went over to Splitcoaststampers and selected one of the sketch challenges, #510.

Here is the sketch:




















Putting the card together with this sketch was going very well and I was happy with the way it looked, UNTIL:

I had a boo boo. :-(


Every stamper will tell you that accidents happen. You cut where you didn't mean to, you glue or stamp something in the wrong spot, or in this case, the card hit the Mossy Meadow Green ink pad.


It's a creative opportunity, they say! It doesn't make you feel any less disgusted. I really liked the way that card turned out, and then I wrecked it!





Well, I had to figure out a way to fix it. So, I decided to change it completely. Since the "Merry Christmas" was in the Mossy Meadow Green, decided to use that color as my background. Here is how it turned out. Not too bad for a re-work. :-)

Paper Pumpkin Examples

Well, I sure have been having fun with the paper pumpkins that have come to my home. The very first one I received was in September for the October holiday. (gives me plenty of time to get going on Halloween!) Here is a card I created with a few of the extra items from the kit.

Happy Halloween


I received the April Paper Pumpkin as a free gift. Here are a few pictures of before, after and extras. Now I can make more tags, cards, or whatever strikes my fancy!
Enjoy.
