Paper Pumpkin Play Date

August 20, 2020

Today I played with the OCTOBER 2016 – SEASON OF GRATITUDE kit.  A Fall themed kit replete with Shaker Cards.  Using components leftover in this box, these were the cards I created.  I do love the warmth of the fall colors and think that the touch of green adds just that much more to the kit contents.

The original kit color Delightful Dijon has been replaced with the new In-Color Bumble Bee. 

From the original kit, the Crumb Cake card base was cut in two.  One of the popped-out leaves that remained after creating a shaker card window was added as an element.  A shaker window was sacrificed to create a stencil for the three different leaf images.  There were also a bunch of shaker card sequins leftover which were used for embellishment bling.

Best Wishes

The pop-out leaf element was sponged with Bumble Bee, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow.  A 2”x 2” square of Bumble Bee In-Color DSP was stamped with the Crackle stamp image in Early Espresso.  After stamping the sentiment in Mossy Meadow, the Crumb Cake panel was textured using the new Wrapped in Texture embossing folder.  A scrap piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock was used as a ribbon type element.


Using the stencil, the leaves were sponged in the same colors, Bumble Bee, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow on to a Very Vanilla panel.  The sentiment was stamped, again in Mossy Meadow before the 3D Subtle embossing folder was used.  The Crumb Cake panel which was also texturized with the 3D Stone embossing folder, now retired.

These were the ideas that Stampin’ Up! provided with this Paper Pumpkin Kit if you were not yet a subscriber in 2016.
