I love sitting down with each new Paper Pumpkin I get from Stampin’ Up! I thought the November kit was cute. Love their color “Cherry Cobbler” and it was the main color for the kit. I almost always switch it up a bit.
I added the gold foiling for some shine and those little gold pieces mixed in with the holly leaves? Those were from last month’s kit
I didn’t really like them on the card in that kit. But I thought they were cute tucked in behind the “Joy”.
I just cut a little off the right side of the front of the card and added some coordinating strips on the inside.
Yay for a good Paper Pumpkin!
Sitting down to make more cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive and had really fun pulling this set out from my Holiday Wishes Stamp of Approval box
It’s called Bright Baubles and is adorable and super fun to play with.
Although I made this one for the drive, it gets me excited to start thinking about the cards I’ll make for Christmas this year!
One of my favorite people to follow is Jennifer McGuire. Not only because she is one of the most amazing card creators ever, but because she uses her platform to bless others. I love her new “Share Handmade Kindness” project and will be doing my best to take every single challenge she posts for it. Here is the card I made for the first goal of giving some handmade kindness to “Friends and Family”.
The biggest challenge I have is getting the card out that I intend to get out. Time goes by and I end up feeling bad I “never send that card”. This challenge will be good for me to just get that card in the mail or to that neighbor or family member. I’m going to give this card to my mom- who always goes above and beyond to make sure every family gathering is amazing. Sometimes to a fault.
The stamps I used-
Lawn Fawn Friendship Grows
Paper Smooches Chit Chat
I love the idea behind this card drive- to get cards to thousands of elderly people who might not otherwise get one around Christmas. I’m excited to take part and hope to send lots of cards! Here is my first finished card for the drive.
