OCTOBER 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives – #FMS458

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit – October 2020 Joy to the World is absolutely gorgeous! I love the warm Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Gold combo. Today I am actually going to share with you some alternative cards that I created using the elements from the kit.

My first alternative project was actually inspired by a Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

I used one of the card bases and the inside of the fancy envelopes to cut strips 3/4″ X 2.5″. I used Early Espresso cardstock to mount it all on and Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment. The beautiful rose was inked using Cherry Cobbler and Just Jade markers and then coloured in using the same colours in Stampin’ Blends.

The second card I created was a take on one of the sample alternatives shown in the kit. Again I used part of the inside of the envelope for the gorgeous red DSP. As an extra I added red holiday rhinestones to the wreath.

As I was pulling out the gold foil words they seemed a bit burnished. To shine them up again I used my simply shammy to clean them. It worked beautifully.
