Paper Pumpkin October 2016

Fall is totally full blown over here with all the rain. So it has been so hard to get some good pictures of my creations!

I had a lot of fun with Paper Pumpkin for October 2016 and this is what I came up with:

This card is actually a shaker card, but its hard to see the sequins when the card stands up!

Hope you liked them!

Hello Fall

I was having fun with watercolors, (why not!) and brainstorming for thanksgiving cards, and this is what I came up with.

I love the contrast where the wet color touched the dry color; really neat. Plus being messy is fun!

Then I added a little gold thread for some bling and called it done! Hope you like it and have a great day!

Last Minute Halloween

I have a couple more last minute Halloween cards to share with you before I begrudgingly admit that October is over.

This one is really simple, but it highlights the candy corn very well from the Jar of Haunts stamp set. it took me a while to stamp them and then color them in, but it was worth it! SO cute!

This one looks a lot like my post from a couple days ago, but a little more typical Halloween colors. 

I really like how this one turned out! I wanted to make a card that showed off more of the Wisteria Wonder color, and I think it looks good. Simple, but good.

Alright, I guess Halloween is over. Fine.

Now onto Thanksgiving and Fall cards! Woohoo!

Pumpkin Fun

I really got into the Jar of Haunts pumpkin and I made two cute cards:

I used the blender pens to shade in the pumpkin. I think it adds dimension and interest. I added the little spider for a bit of spook! I think, depending on the sentiment, either one could be Halloween, Thanksgiving, or a Fall card. Hope you like them. Enjoy your last couple days of October!

Halloween Washi

I really like the Halloween Themed washi tape that Stampin' Up came out with this year! Especially the shiny bats! This is a really simple card and I used the stamps from the September Paper Pumpkin kit too!

Hope you like it!

The countdown to Halloween continues! Here is another card I made using the Spooky Fun set. I really wanted to come up with something that used the ghosts and gravestones. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I used the embossing folder just on the top to make it a night sky. Hope you like it!
