I can’t believe we’re already in September! There is no change in the weather here in Florida and no changing of leaves to look forward to, but I am beginning to get that Fall-feeling. In fact, I’ve been making things and already started my Fall decorating!
I have more summer cards to share with you, but don’t know if I will after this post or if I’ll just begin posting my Fall cards. I do want to show you a few of my alternative Paper Pumpkin cards today. The Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit from July was incredible! I loved the stamp set and the postcard-type paper.
I didn’t want to make postcards, so I made 9 full size cards by adding a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base to each one. (I love to make the paper Pumpkin cards as the directions show, but I also like to see what else I can do with them.) I used the By the Dock Stamp Set and the Mountain Air Stamp Set for one of the cards and I love the way it turned out. The background was perfect for this card. I stamped the dock and boat images with Black Momento Ink and colored them with Stampin’ Blends Markers – Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, and Soft Suede. When I was finished with the coloring, I adhered the postcard paper to the front of a Whisper White Cardstock base. So quick and easy! The photo turned out blurry so I need to take a better one, but it’s too dark right now.

As the autumn season approaches, prepare to celebrate with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit, “Hello Pumpkin!” There’s so much to love about fall—some love the haunts of Halloween, many love the time to give thanks, and others love the changing colors and cooler temperatures. Whatever you love most about fall, September’s kit has everything you need to celebrate the season your way! Between a multi-occasion stamp set and enough supplies to design 20 cracker box treat packages, you can create custom fall crafts to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins, and leaves. Whether you make them all the same or mix ‘n’ match your crafts, there’s something for everyone in this kit! If you’re not interested in making the cracker box treat packages, you can make Fall cards out of the supplies. And if you need ideas, there are plenty of alternate projects on Pinterest.
