I can't get enough of the Friends of a Feather October Paper Pumpkin Kit!
I was determined to use up the entire kit before the November kit arrives....and I finished them up last week. Here's my last two ideas (plus one from a team member)...
Friends Stick Together Note Card
Trim off the Fresh Fig panel from the 3-panel note card (save for card below)
Adhere 3-3/8" x 4-7/8 piece of Night of Navy cardstock under card front with glue dots (in the 4 corners and the "label" area)
Adhere Night of Navy label to card front (from kit).
Stamp greeting with Night of Navy ink on blue flowered label (from kit). Add SNAIL adhesive to backside. Don't attach yet
Wrap Silver Metallic Thread around 4 fingers, 4-5 times, then press into the adhesive. Add Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere to card front.
Attach two Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Hope Note Card
Trim down the Fresh Fig panel, saved from the 3- panel card - to 3-3/8" x 4-7/8"
Adhere feather & leaf (from kit) with glue dots
Stamp greeting with Fresh Fig ink on scrap of Whisper White. Cut with Pretty Label Punch. Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Adhere completed panel to folded Whisper White Note card (and envelopes)
Attach sequin (from kit)
And...here's one more Friends of a Feather card idea from DOstamperSTAR, Bernadette Baio
As you can probably tell - I really liked the October Friends of a Feather Paper Pumpkin kit. The kit originally was designed to create 8 cards. However, I got 20 cards out of the kit using the alternates I created - wow!! I'll be mailing them out this week to some special people
I received a card from my sweet friend, Shannon West from the Stampin' Up! home office (congratulating me on my $1 million sales milestone achievement). At first glance, I didn't recognize the cute products. Then I realized it was from the new Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit.
Even the envelope is cute!
If you're interested in calligraphy, then this kit is for you. As you'll learn modern script calligraphy while creating a selection of hand-lettered cards.
These chic and fashionable designs in this set will shine as the star of the crafting show.. But don't be deceived; there are a few that don't seem to mind fading into the background to let something else shine through a bit stronger...like the beautiful wreath image!
How'd She DO That? tips for Hello Friend card:

Pining For Plaid Alternate Card Ideas
If you've already started to play with your kit, you've probably found that you'll have lots of white circles leftover (from the shaker windows). I knew I had to put them to use and here's what I came up with using the smaller of the two circles...
Snowman Note Card
Stamp snowflakes using Pool Party ink on Pool Party cardstock (3-3/8" x 4-7/8")
Head = trim off bottom of one of the circles (cut off at the last "texture line" )
Scarf = trim sides off an envelop and cut a 2-3/4" x 1/2" from the pattern paper
Holly = use Holly Builder Punch (Old Olive & Cherry Cobbler scraps), assemble with glue dots
Eyes = use Cookie Cutter Punch (Basic Black) - adhere with glue dots
Nose = Pumpkin Pie scraps (hand cut)
Adhere pieces together and then to stamped panel
Stamp greeting with black ink
Adhere completed panel to Note Card (& Envelopes)
As you probably know by now, this 9-square quilt is one of my go-to layouts with pattern paper. I never tire of this look. And with a little stamping, I created a little custom pattern paper of my own!
Seasons Greetings Quilt Card
Cut five 1" squares of the paper paper (from an envelope). Stamp snowflakes with black ink on 1" strip (and at least 4" long) of Old Olive cardstock, then cut into four 1" squares .
Adhere all nine squares to 3-1/4" square of Whisper White, then to 3-1/2" square of Old Olive The adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.
Ink up only the word "greetings" with black ink and stamp on scrap of Whisper White. Clean stamp and ink up only "season's" and stamp above previous image. Cut with 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Adhere to 1-1/2" Basic Black Circle.
Use Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler scraps and Holly Berry Builder Punch. Adhere holly/berries with glue dots. Then adhere completed greeting circle to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
Tie Basic Black Baker's Twine in a bow and adhere with glue dot
