Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!
I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits. Today we're sharing the October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Friends of a Feather.
Am I the only one that looks at the Paper Pumpkin envelopes first? Often times the inside of the envelopes is patterned, which gives the kits even more possibilities. And Friends of a Feather didn't let me down - in fact, there are two colored patterns - yippee!
My cards came together quickly using the inside of the envelopes and two punches, Pretty Label Punch and Starburst Punch.
This one is my favorite! I adore the Fresh Fig pattern from the inside of the envelope. The trick is to trim off 1/4" from the sides of the envelope and then unfold to reveal the pattern side. For both of today's cards, I used a piece measuring 5" x 3-3/4".
How'd She DO That? Tips for Friends of a Feather cards:
- Fresh Fig (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
- Whisper White (scraps for Pretty Label Punch)
- Cajun Craze (scraps for Starburst Punch)
- Envelope "paper" (5" x 3-3/4")
- Ink: Fresh Fig
- Other: Pretty Label Punch, Starburst Circle Punch, Rhinestone Jewels
Then I just had to use the other envelope with Grapefruit Grove. Which one do you like best? Grapefruit Grove or Fresh Fig?
I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is my friend, Rachel Tessman See the full list below.
