If you are new to the idea of Paper Pumpkin I will give you a quick update. It is a mail subscription through Stampin' Up with one project to complete each month. It includes everything you need to do it, and it can be anything from cards to a 3D project. For example, last December was a calendar for the next year. The subscription (of course) uses only Stampin' Up materials.
So far I am having fun with it, but I am not really following the directions ...
This months project was a set of cards with a really cool laser cut pattern. The kit included a Pumpkin Pie (orange) crimped paper, the laser cut folded card, embellishments (Pool Party), a stamp set, and Night of Navy ink mini. I chose not to use Night of Navy because I did not think it matched at all. Yup, I'm a rebel.
Here are the cards I cam up with:
Not bad, but I felt I could make something cuter. So I used the rest of the materials and had some fun! I tried to use all of the materials I could, but I was not a fan of the orange, sorry!
Anyhoo, here are the cards I came up with:
Honestly, this was super fun because my challenge was to take the original basic design elements and make them my own! So fun!
I did this whole crafty project with my Stampin' Up demonstrator, and you can see her cards at Craftier Creations.
