For my inspiration today, I have another alternative Paper Pumpkin project!  The August kit is my all time favorite!!!  It’s so cute that I already used up all the contents of the box, so for this project, I’m only using the stamps.  However, that brings up a good point … did you know that subscribers can order extra supplies of select kits?  That’s one of the great perks of being a subscriber.  To find out which kits are available, go to my online store and search Paper Pumpkin.  You’ll also find prepaid subscriptions at a discounted price!

I used the Deco Labels Framelit Dies to cut labels out of both Chalkboard paper and Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then, I used Whisper White Craft ink to stamp the greeting and a White Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen to draw in the dots.  Going with the “dots” theme, I also used the Decorative Dots Textured Impression Embossing Folder to decorate the Circles Collection Framelit die cut layer.

I love the swirly stamps from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit so much that I decided to use them to create a fun border on the bottom of this card.  I made a little mistake on the lower right hand side, so I used some sponging to mask it.  Hey, everybody makes mistakes sometimes.

I love all the layers on this card, and I particularly love the Dotted Scallop Trim and Metal Rimmed Pearls.  These are two of my favorites right now!
