A Week of Sweet as Pie - Feather Outline Cards

Welcome to my week of Paper Pumpkin projects using the October Paper Pumpkin kit - Sweet as Pie.  This kit came with a five piece stamp set which included the following images:
  • Saying: Happy Thanksgiving
  • Saying: Holiday calories don't count
  • Saying: There's no such thing as too much pie
  • Saying: Thankful for you
  • Image: small heart
The Stampin ' Spot is Old Olive.  The kit contained supplies to make 8 treat boxes with four sheets of stampable flaps and four sheets of feathers in five colors and bright yellow yarn for pom poms. 

This first card is one that I'll be making a lot of using the scraps from the kit.  The splatter is from Gorgeous Grunge.  The outline of the feather is done by punching out the feather from the die cut sheet and then cutting around the edges left behind.  I love the look of it!  The little heart was stamped on Very Vanilla and then attached using adhesive.  The Thankful for you banner is up on dimensionals.

This second card also uses the outline left from punching out a feather.  The strip of striped paper is one of the sides of a cut up box.  The strip behind the Happy Thanksgiving is the scrap left after punching the scalloped edge.

Supplies outside of the Paper Pumpkin kit:
  • Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, Very Vanilla cardstock, Night of Navy cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scissors, Dimensionals, and SNAIL adhesive
As a reminder, Paper Pumpkin kits are mailed to your door and provide all the supplies you need to complete adorable projects (excluding scissors and adhesive).  You get a photopolymer stamp set, a Stampin' Spot of ink, instructions, and all the supplies needed to make either cards or 3D objects depending on the month.  The cost is $19.95 per month and you need to sign up by the 10th of the month to receive that month's kit around the 18th.  Kits are designed to take 30 minutes if you follow the instructions in the kit which is great for busy moms and new crafters.  Those with more experience can combine kits with other craft supplies and take a little more time to literally think "outside the box."  Have more questions - contact me today!


To sign up for Paper Pumpkin, visit https://mypaperpumpkin.com/en/?demoid=80380.

Perks for signing up under me:
  1. I have committed to having additional samples created using the kit by the first week of the month.  That way those that are cardmakers have options just like those that scrapbook or like decor.
  2. I will post frequent updates to the Pinterest board I have dedicated to Paper Pumpkin projects - again providing you inspiration to use with your kit if you need something different from the instructions included!
  3. I will host a Paper Pumpkin party that is free for the recipients of Paper Pumpkin with me.  Those crafting friends can come for free and enjoy good company and a pumpkin snack while putting together your kits.  These events will usually be the first Wednesday of the month!  There will also be a door prize given each month to the attendees and if you want to make any of the samples I show using the kit (that doesn't require hardware like frames), I will provide that for attendees as well.
Check back tomorrow for two more card ideas!
