November 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Back in Plaid Alternative Note Cards

Have you seen the Back in Plaid-November Paper Pumpkin Kit?  

This fun kit, designed to coordinate with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit (Pining For Plaid), is filled with these darling holiday stockings.  The kit as is, is super fun and easy to complete.

But you know me, I have to play around a little and found the stamp set a lot of fun to create with (see my alternative projects below)

Merry & Bright Tree Note Card

  • The tree image in the stamp set is fairly small and I wanted to create something a little larger
  • Using Old Olive ink, I stamped the tree 4 times (start with top tree, then turn stamp to stamp 2nd tree upside down connecting the two trees together.  Then stamp the 3rd & 4th tree on both sides of the 2nd tree (upside right).  
  • Practice on a piece of scrap to get the hang of'll love it!
  • Cherry Cobbler ink (from October's PP Kit)  for the greeting
