Have you seen this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin’ Up! ? Every month, I am so excited to see what is in store for me. This month’s kit is so cute.
This kit contains enough supplies for 8 treat bags and tags, and the stamps are very fun, too!
I have 8 grandchildren, so this kit is perfect for me for Halloween treats for them. Just don’t tell my husband there wasn’t one for him ok? 😈 Here is one of the bags I made:
I decided I wanted to also make a Halloween card using some of the stamps from this set, so I began to pull together all of the stamps I thought I could combine to make a Halloween scene. I pulled out Sheltering Tree, Happy Scenes and of course, the September Paper Pumpkin offerings. Here is what I came up with:
First, I stamped the tree from the Sheltering Tree set in Memento Black ink onto a panel of Whisper White. I decided it needed some spiders to make it a little more creepy, so I masked off the web part of the stamp with scotch tape and inked up the spider and its dragline from Happy Scenes in Memento Black ink and stamped it as if they were hanging from the 3 branches. Then, I added the rake which was stamped in Memento Black. The leaves were inked with Delightful Dijon and Tangelo Twist and stamped across the bottom of the card.
The pumpkins were cut out with a die from the Square Pillow Box Thinlets Dies and decorated with a Black Stampin’ Write marker, and popped up with Dimensionals. I stamped the Witch’s Hat from the Paper Pumpkin set in Memento Black right onto the Whisper White piece and added the Boo sentiment from the Happy Scenes set also in Memento Black. Happy Haunting, also from September Paper Pumpkin, was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White in Tangelo Twist ink. I used the smallest banner from the Banners Framelits die set to cut it out and trimmed the left end a little so that I could frame it in a piece of Tangelo Twist that had also been cut out with the same banner.
For the inside, I stamped a pumpkin from the Paper Pumpkin stamps and a sentiment from the Happy Scenes set in Tangelo Twist, and the Boo, also from Happy Scenes, in Memento Black. I added a left over strip of the DSP to the bottom with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
