A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Gift of Fall


Hello and welcome to my blog for my second blog post for today.  This month's kit was a super cute kit that featured Fall themed gift bags and tags.  We also had the option of purchasing a matching add on kit also.  This months Paper Pumpkin Kit was titled Gift of Fall.  I shared earlier this kit and the projects from that kit earlier today you can click here to see that post.  For my alternative projects this month I came up with three super cute projects.  Here's a look at my projects.
I came up with three cards and a super cute little box using additional products along with products from this month's kit.  The first card I came up with was the Pretty Peacock card here.
I started out with a piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  I stamped the leaf image from this month's stamp set all around the card base in Pretty Peacock ink.

Next I added one of the white tags in the center of the card.  I then added the crushed curry circle from this month's kit to the center of the banner with a few stampin' dimensionals.  I then added two of the vellum leaves one of the pretty peacock striped leaf and one of the craft leaf.  I added all the leaves with mini glue dots tucked under the crushed curry circle with the multicolored branches on it.

I then stamped my sentiment on one of the banners in Merry Merlot and added that to the center of the circle using stampin' dimensionals.  I then added a few of the gold self adhesive sequins to the card front.  I added some of the crushed curry seam binding ribbon that I made into a bow and attached with a mini glue dot.

To finish off my card I added a piece of whisper white cardstock that I stamped the branch on the left hand side in pretty peacock ink.  This finished off my first card.
Next I created the little box using some Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the Perfect Parcel dies.  It took one piece of cardstock to create this box.  Once I had everything cut out I used the Golden Glitz Delicata ink and stamped the branch around the side of the box.

Once I had the pieces cut out stamped and the ink dried I added some tear and tape and put the box together.  Once it was together I created my tag for the box.  I used one of the crushed curry circles for the main part of the tag along with one of the labels.  I stamped my sentiment on the tag and added it to the circle using stampin' dimensionals.  I then added some of the Crushed Curry Seam binding to around the box and tied it in a pretty bow.  I added the tag to the top of the box with dimensionals attached to the ribbon that way I could slide the tag and ribbon off without having to untie it.

I finished this project off by adding a few of the gold self adhesive sequins to the tag and around the circle.

For the third project today I created another card that matched my little box.  I used a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).
I stamped the branch in the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink going up the left hand side of the card base and then I added the multicolored banner to the card base one of the Merry Merlot circles and a little of the twine.  Next I stamped the sentiment in the same Delicata ink on one of the die cuts and added this to the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added one of the vellum leafs.  These leafs are so pretty they have a watercolor look to them but I didn't have to do any of the work to create them.  I then added some of the Blackberry bliss leaves and the crumb cake leaves.  
I finished off the card by adding a piece of whisper white to the inside and a few of the sequins to the card front.  
I hope that you have enjoyed my little projects for this month's Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  If you are viewing this post on my Wordpress site you will need to click here to view the Blog Roll.  Thanks for dropping by.
