Wickedly Sweet Treat, September Paper Pumpkin

So, this weekend I had my monthly Paper Pumpkin play date.  And aside from the cute project that arrives ready to make in each month’s kit, I like to come up with some ideas for how to use the kit contents in a different manner.

If you have not yet seen the Wickedly Sweet Treat kit, take two minutes and watch my reveal video.

Aside from the cute bags that can be made from this kit and filled with things like candy, baked goods or even one of those wonderful “caramel” apples — you know the ones with all the goodies coating the outside – you can use the materials in the kit for other purposes.

The stamp set is wonderful!  Perfect for lots of Fall creations.  I may need to make up some inchie card candy.

Anyway, here are two simple ideas.  Both could easily be elaborated on but, I didn’t want to use a lot of materials that were not in the kit.

First:

Wickedly Sweet Treat place setting with utensils using the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin - from theartfulinker.com

I used one of the fringed treat bags to create a place card/utensil holder.  The bag is wrapped with a length of Burlap Ribbon and the ribbon is tied with a piece of the Cajun Craze thick baker’s twine that is included in the kit.

Next, I used the card that’s included in the kit (meant to stabilize the bottom of the treat bag).  It’s stamped with a pair of leaf images included in the stamp set.  The leaves were inked with the Cajun Craze ink spot from the kit.

I lettered the card by hand and then used a brush to “watercolor” some of the Cajun Craze ink into the letters in an ombre like effect.

Finally, I cut a length of raffia (also in the kit) and shredded it.  This was perfect for creating a thread bow as an accent to the card.

These would be fun on a Fall buffet table.

My second simple creation using the Wickedly Sweet Treat Paper Pumpkin

Wickedly Sweet Treat, September 2015 Paper Pumpkin clean and simple card from theartfulinker.com

was a clean and simple card.  I used some Very Vanilla cardstock and a piece of Kraft cardstock from my stash to create this love note sized card.

Again, I used a pair of leaves from the Wickedly Sweet Treat stamp set inked in Cajun Craze.  I stamped a random pattern on the Kraft cardstock layer.

Using the Cajun Craze ink and a sentiment and the row of dots from the stamp set, I stamped the focal layer.

Again, I created a thread bow from the raffia as an accent.

I’ll be playing more with the stamp set from Wickedly Sweet Treat.  There are so many images I haven’t yet used.

But, that didn’t stop me from ordering several refills for this kit.  I’ve already got plans for using them.
