A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop To You and Yours

November 29, 2018 6 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  And today is the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop To You and Yours.  We’ve got lots of alternative ideas for using the beautiful November 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit!

To You and Yours

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop To You and Yours Alternative Card

Since one of my customers was unable to get the November kit,

I helped her out and gave her mine.

My friend Andrea sent a piece of the plaid and die cut leaves to me

so that I could make alternatives to share!

So, these alternatives are all about stretching the kit!

To double the number of cards, add Crumb Cake cardstock bases.

Then, add a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock embossed with the Tin Tile folder.

Next, take your finger and swipe on some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint

to highlight the embossed detail.

Then, add half of one of the plaid panels in the kit.

Using the 2-1/2″ circle from the Layering Circles, cut a piece of Vellum.

And, use the Starburst Punch to cut a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper.

Next, add Dimensionals to both pieces and tuck in die cut pine boughs

from the kit.

Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut banner ends.

And, adhere this piece with Dimensionals.

Treat Packaging

For the treat packaging, use a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.

Then, add a layer of Cherry Cobbler before adding a piece of

the plaid panel.

Next, layer on the same pieces that coordinate with the card.

Using the star stamp, ink in Versamark and emboss in gold.

Then, use the Twinkle Builder Punch to cut them out.

Notice one size leaves a border and the other size star

cuts right up to the embossed line.

To close the treat packaging, the side/end had a small gusset.

Both ends are glued together.

However, you could choose to use the Cherry Cobbler Braided Trim from the kit

or a Gold Library Clip on one end.

Inside is a package of Knoppers.

Another of my finds from recent trips to the grocery.

These were found at Aldi.
