Thinking Outside the Paper Pumpkin Box....

Welcome!
 
Happy Monday!
 
What a fantastic weekend I had....not only was it my birthday....but there was a new addition to my family....and great fun with my family...life is certainly good!
 
So...I didn't get much stamping done...but.....I have something to share.
 
As many of you may not know, I usually do my blog posts on the Sunday prior to the beginning of the week...seems like this is a great day for me to get my week off to a great start...and I usually do  my week's blog posts all at one shot....I figured if I'm in a typing mood, I'll get it all done as I always have so much to share with you with what I worked on the week before and the weekend.
 
So....Paper Pumpkin is on board today.
 
Do you know how much I LOVE Paper Pumpkin?  OMG....YES>>>>I DO!
 
So...many of you may have been disappointed with the kit and many ecstatic....
 
If you don't know....it was a kit filled with little gem-shaped boxes to create...well, maybe you aren't into boxes, so...it's time to think outside the box!
 
Let me share with you (if you haven't already checked me out on You Tube and seen my video) my projects I created, inspired by other demos.
 
Just by adding a few extra pieces of cardstock...and a little embellishment...I created this super fun card.....oh yes...a little bling too.
 
 
I used components from the kit including the twine and the tag and stamps/ink of course.

 
Here's another quick design....the background of the Whisper White piece in the center was stamped using one of the stamps in the set...and then an overlay of vellum....wrapped with the twine...and tag

 
I think I saved the best for last.....butterflies....don't you just love them?

 
A little butterfly background embossed...and a few punches of butterflies..and vellum...and what a stunning card...more stunning in person!
 

 
I used the boxes from the kit and punch to create the pretty butterflies...
 
 
If you are wondering how I did the background piece, you'll not want to miss out on my Live Facebook Workshop...I'll be explaining another card but how the background is created.
