Sheltering Tree - Fall Card

Unfortunately we do not have a stamp set with a tree with bare branches anymore.  I searched and searched and had to go back to one of my favourite retired stamps called Sheltering Tree.  Sadly I realized that I had sold mine so the search began.....thanks so much to Megan Yibba for coming to my rescue!

I used small pieces of Bubble Wrap with my finger as my stamp block to add the leaves to the tree! I wanted Cajun Craze ribbon and we do not have any right now so went to my stash and found some old retired ribbon in Riding Hood Red that worked for me!

PPP Blog Hop Bone Appétit!

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 September Paper Pumpkin kit: "Bone Appétit!".

These are the original projects:

For my first project I made a treat box and tag, using the Gorgeous Grape coloured box that the kit came in!

This is my treat box/bag :

I had to make a template on copy paper before I decided where to cut and score on the cardboard. I used the top of the box cutting off the sides and flap.

Right Side


I used both Gorgeous Grape and Black cardstock to make a band around the top of the bag. For the handles I used the Black Ribbon (146280) cut at about 11" per handle.
My bow is the Halloween Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon (150449).

For my tag I used Pumpkin Pie, Black, Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White cardstock along with a piece I cut from one of the kit treat boxes. The image is stamped onto the Whisper White and the added Gorgeous Grape ink to the edges. All supplies are listed below.

My second project is a Halloween card.


I stamped the 2 skeleton images with Gorgeous Grape ink onto the Gorgeous Grape cardstock. The Regals DSP is Pumpkin Pie. The raised skeleton and the tag are from the Paper Pumpkin kit.
All supplies are listed below.

Painted Harvest meets Bubble Wrap!

Today my card is a fall theme using a technique and then adding some stamped images over the top.  I used a stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.

For this card I used the new Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper for my card front.  I spritzed with water first and then added fall colours with my aquapainter and then spritzed it again until I had the look I wanted.  Let dry or use your heat tool to dry it.
I added all my fall colours to a piece of Bubble Wrap with matching Stampin Write Markers and then stamped this on top of my watercolour background.
Then using my Painted Harvest stamp set I added my focal point and my greeting.
