Fun with the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin

Okay, I admit, I get behind on my monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. *gasp* I especially get behind when the kit is a treat kit and not a standard card kit. My fun with Paper Pumpkin is creating them exactly as directed because it’s relaxing but the treat kits require more thought. I took the August 2019 kit and made cards from it trying to use every single piece. I also made a version of the last card using current Stampin’ Up! products so you can recreate it.

For the first two cards, I made the tags as directed then added them to a piece of embossed cardstock and a cardbase. (The sentiment is from the retired Butterfly Basics stamp set.)

These next two cards are basically the same except I ran out of the Crumb Cake leaves and had to use the die cut from the Animal Friends dies. I die cut the Whisper White cardstock using the biggest Stitched Shapes circle die and stamped it with a stamp from the kit. My banner is a 2″ piece of Pretty Peacock that I punched with the Banner Triple punch.

Here’s where I took a turn. The kit came with these small labels that didn’t have a purpose so I used them with some of the other leftover pieces to create this card. I did have to pull out the leaf punch to fill in for the die cut in the kit.

And if you didn’t have the kit, you can make this card with current Stampin’ Up! products. I die cut the leaf and inked it with Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot.
