Paper Pumpkin October 2016 Season of Gratitude Another Alternative

Hello and Welcome!
Today I am sharing another alternative for the Paper Pumpkin Season of Gratitude. On my previous post I created four different ideas.  I decided to make two of each and I still had supplies to make more cards, I used some cardstock I had on hand and some framelits, so here is what I came out with.

This card size is 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder to give it a little texture.

I wanted to make some Crackled Pumpkin boxes to pack some candy and the best choice was the Curvy Keepsake Box stamped with the crackle stamp from the kit in Pumpkin Pie color and I used the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. I also used the 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon in Delightful Dijon.

I love the look of the Crackled Pumpkins!

I hope you enjoyed these ideas, this kit has so many options I am sure you all are going to have fun creating your Thanksgiving cards and gift boxes.

Paper Pumpkin October 2016 Season of Gratitude Alternatives

Hello and Welcome!
Today I am sharing the Paper Pumpkin October 2016 Season of Gratitude Alternatives. This kit contains all the supplies for 8 shaker cards and envelopes, it also includes a versatile stamp set with gratitude sentiments which is a great addition to our collection! This is another opportunity to create those so popular Shaker Cards with trims and sequins in such beautiful colors that brings the Autumn season.

I created four alternatives by using several extra Framelits dies and coordinating cardstock. You can make two of each design or make the other four cards as the original instructions.

I used Copper Stampin' Emboss powder for the sentiments, and a piece of Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper behind the window pane.

I hope you liked these alternatives and decide to make your own sets. I had so much fun creating these cards, I have some leftover supplies I will be using for other Fall projects, so please come back and visit again!
Please watch the following YouTube video for the October 2016 Season of Gratitude original kit design.
