Inspiration:

Speaking of Paper Pumpkin, I have a few more alternative projects for this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit to share with you today.  This kit is really fun!  For my first project, I added some decorative stamps to the pocket using Bermuda Bay ink.  I also added some colorful flowers punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack out of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry.

To complete this project, you will need a little more Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine than what was provided in the kit.  I added a lot to the tassel, and tied it around both the pocket and mini card inside.  I also added some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine to the tassel.

I added some layers to the mini card inside, including some Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper on the bottom.  To create the banner, I used one of the die cut strips from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and fed it through the back of a Banner punch to just punch out the “V” on each side.

For my next card, I went with a chalkboard theme.  All the Paper Pumpkin stamps this month are chalk looking stamps, so I thought it would be fun to create a chalkboard on the mini card.  I used both white and Crushed Curry embossing powder to really make the light colors stand out against the black paper.

Again, I used a Banner Punch to create ties for my bow with the die cut strip provided in the kit.  I also rounded the corners of my “chalkboard.”

There are so many things you can do with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit!  The stamps are so versatile, and I love all the pre-scored pockets, designer mini cards, and embellishments!  If you’d like to subscribe, and get even more ideas from me (including 8 free tutorials), click on the Paper Pumpkin link on the right or on the tab above for more information.
