October Paper Pumpkin Beauties plus an awesome video

So, I was playing with my October Paper Pumpkin kit over the weekend.  WOW!!  Can I just say this was an amazing kit!!  

October Paper Pumpkin kit

You don' have it?  Why have you not signed up for Paper Pumpkin yet???  It is a monthly subscription service for $19.95 plus tax delivered to your door each month (not additional shipping)!  Each kit includes an awesome stamp set, an ink spot or two, plus all the materials required to make 8-12 projects each month! You don't even need adhesive–its included!! The best part is there are always left over pieces that you can use to create additional projects as well as having an exclusive stamp set to continue to use!  Some of my favorite stamps have come in paper pumpkin kits, which is really awesome! 

Still not sold?  Well, when you sign up with me to have Paper pumpkin delivered to your door each month, I'll provide you with an additional 10-12 project sheets (photos of projects with complete instructions) to make using the supplies from your kit. I've partnered with my friends to offer you some amazing ideas for your stamps and supplies from the kit each month.  This exclusive offering is not anywhere else online!  Here is a sampling of this month's additional projects:

In addition, I'd love to share with you some more cards I made while playing with my kit–it was so much fun stamping with this set of stamps, too!!  There is a great video on watercoloring, below as well….

October Paper Pumpkin Alternative Project

Congrats Card using October's Paper Pumpkin Kit

First of all, I just LOVE how simple and easy this card is–only took about 5 minutes to make!  My kind of card!!  I used the leaf printed paper piece from the kit along with one of the gold stickers and then tied some of the included twine around the bottom.  Stamped a greeting (from the set) on a scrap of paper and popped it up with the left-over dimensionals.  The card base is one from the kit.  EASY as pie!

Inside of Congrats Card

On the inside of the card I used the pieces from the sticker that are supposed to come out.  Now if you are thinking I aligned them up so good, you'd be right….but here is how I did it:  When I pulled the sticker off the sheet.  The whole thing (inside pieces and all) came off.  I then set it on the inside of my card and used my stylus tool to push the inside pieces to the carstock, while I peeled back the sticker.  They ended up all nicely aligned, then I stuck the sticker on the outside of the card.  Easy!

I'm not gonnal lie–this card has to be my fav!!! I had a piece of watercolor paper sitting on my desk that I couldn't get rid of (because that would be wasteful!!) and so I grabbed it and just stamped those flowers one at a time in different shades of pink and coral.  LOVE the look.  Then I decided to pull out my aqua painter and just blend some color a bit.  Check out the video:

I actually made this one before the card in the video–can you tell the difference!!  While this card is really pretty, it doen't have the "pop" of the petals from the Calypso Coral card above!  See–just a few tips can make you a stamping savant!  Watercoloring is one technique that I LOVE because it can make an average stamper in to a stamping EXTRODINAIRE!!!  Plus it makes you look fancy in your skills! šŸ˜‰

This was actually the first card I made–I kind of went in reverse order!  I love the simplicity ofit and how it is fairly masculine, which is always a trick to make those cards.  I really like how the Pear Pizzazz looks with the Basic Gray and Smoky Slate, too!
