When I received this month's Paper Pumpkin kit, which is a tribute to the best of the best, I wasn't really in the market for this type of card. But as usual, when I opened up my "magic box" I found a collection of the coolest patterns & colours! There are supplies for shaker cards (how fun is that), tons of snazzy plaid card bases & gold foil & vellum die-cuts. And don't get me started on the stunning 1" Pacific Point grosgrain ribbon! The colours are beautiful together with Pacific Point stealing the show along with Mint Macaron & Bumblebee accents. I immediately went to town creating alternatives for birthdays, Christmas & a cute Thank you card that morphed the trophy into a flower pot!
Today we had our Zoom class with the P.P. Peeps & here's a parade of Paper Pumpkin creations to peruse.
These shaker cards used the gold stars & the adhesive frames from the kit. I added some Stitched Stars & a birthday greeting to create this fun alternative.
I loved the Mint Macaron plaid & added the watercolour washed panel & gold accents to add a touch of class.
The spiffy Pacific Point Plaid makes a great generic design with the trophy die-cut congratulating a special kid.
These last two are a bit whimsical & I love how the trophy die cut became a flower pot for the daisy punched from the medium daisy punch.
The negative space from the leaf die-cuts became a template for some pale green sponging to create a quick & pretty note card.
These Paper Pumpkin kits have provided me with endless supplies & a collection of stamp sets to use again & again. Rarely have I used the designs as intended but hey - that's half the fun - they're designed to inspire & so they do!
