My Paper Pumpkin - Alterations

Sharing a couple cards I made using kits from Stampin' Up!'s  My Paper Pumpkin. 

Pre-designed card kits can be fun, but I'm really bad at following any type of directions to the letter (call it creative rebellion, if you will).   Sometimes I think I just want to hoard the fun stickers or embellishments for other projects... and sometimes it may just be because what shows up in the kit begs to use something else I have on hand.  The card above just begged me to use this cute little boot eyelet from the Eyelet Outlet.  The funky sentiment is not one I'd use for anyone I know, but the 'booty' boot was a fun pun to play with.

The card below uses some of the pieces from my first month's kit, just the card base & patterned paper layer.   I used Jenni Bowlin Designs stamp & Papertrey Ink sentiment for a super simple any occasion card...

Have fun playing with your card kits!  I cannot wait to see what you come up with this month.  Happy stamping, everyone!

  1. These are terrific! Both of my kits are still sitting in the box. I haven't decided if I'm keeping them or using them as gifts... The second kit is really calling my name!
