PPP Blog Hop Gifts of Fall

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild.
On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this August Paper Pumpkin kit: "The Gift of Fall".
These are the original projects:

I have made 2 different cards using the Add-On Bundle. My first card is using the front of the Pretty Peacock card, I cut the front off the card at 3-1/2" x 5" and added a layer of Calypso Coral to a Pretty Peacock card base. Using the coordinating cardstock colours I cut out leaves using the Gathered Leaves dies. (** By spraying your cardstock with water the deep embossed effect gives you a tone on tone colour for the leaves and cuts them out.**)

My second card uses the other card design and I used the same card layout except this time I used a Blackberry Bliss card base and a Crushed Curry layer.

I also made a gift card holder using Crumb Cake cardstock. Started with a 3" x 7" piece and scored it in the middle at 3-1/2". On the long sides I scored 1/4" in from each edge. Cut both 1/4" sides off on one half of the cardstock and folded the other sides on the score lines. Used a 1" circle punch to cut a half circle in the end to make it easy to get the gift card in and out. Glued the front to the back and voila!
