Fall Pumpkin Leaves

 Do you get the monthly Paper Pumpkin Kits?  I loved the leaves in this months - especially the intricate die cut gold maple leaves!  The Kit came with note cards and packages.  I made up all of the notecards, as you can see above, however, I'm not in need of the little packages so I cut them apart, heat embossed the dry embossed design that was already on the card with copper embossing powder and added it to the front of a Olive Green card base; using the little leaf stamp to decorate around the edges.

 HERE is a link to the Stampin'Up! blog page designated for this month's Paper Pumpkin for alternative ideas to do with the kit.
 Layered Leaves Refill Refills? Yes, please! These lovely cards and embossed boxes will look fabulous next to your guests’ place settings at the Thanksgiving table! Or use them to surprise friends who would love to receive a little something with an autumn vibe. One refill is only $10.00, so don’t delay—these projects are so stunning that refills will simply flutter away!

You can find this refill on my website store .
You can find them under Paper Pumpkin in the side bar, and at the bottom of the page under "Past Kits".

Happy Stamping and have a great day.

Two coordinating kits means that 1) you will have everything you need to complete unique holiday cards and gifts, 2) you will have more creative options, and 3) you can get that handmade holiday touch without the fuss.

Holiday kits for new and previous subscribers . . .
Maybe you don’t craft regularly, but you still love to make holiday cards and gifts? With so much coordinated cuteness on tap, now’s the perfect time to dive in and subscribe at
