PPP September Blog Hop Hello Pumpkin

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities October Blog Hop as we share alternative project ideas using the Hello Pumpkin Kit. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their creative alternative project ideas for this month's kit. I hope that we inspire you to explore different ways to think outside of the box with your own kit. 
The September Paper Pumpkin kit is full of wonderful die cuts and supplies to help you create 20 cracker box treat holders that you can decorate for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving or a combination of all three. The abundance of supplies means that there are a wonderful variety of alternative projects that you can create just by using a little imagination and creativity. 
I love Halloween, so I couldn't wait to create a spooky card design with some of the supplies in this kit. The black cat and pumpkin die cuts are perfect for this season and were the starting point for my design. We have two black cats in our family, so I couldn't wait to create this design. I chose to use Bumblebee cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock for the night sky. The brick wall was created using Gray Granite cardstock and the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder (item #149643) and I sponged it with Gray Granite Classic ink and a Sponge Dauber to give the bricks a worn, aged look. The moon has been sponged with Bumblebee Classic ink with a Sponge Dauber to add dimension. 
Supplies Used:
Paper Pumpkin Hello Pumpkin kit (September 2020)
Bumblebee cardstock (item #153077)
Night of Navy cardstock (item #100867)
Gray Granite cardstock (item #146983)

Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Marker (Combo - item #154885)
Bumblebee cardstock card base -  8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Night of Navy cardstock layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Gray Granite pieces - 
2 1/4" x 4" (embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder)

Bumblebee cardstock for the die cut circle for the moon
This card is simple to assemble using Stampin' Seal and Stampin' Dimensionals. I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Marker to color a medium Basic Rhinestone for the cat's eye. I used Pumpkin Pie Classic ink to stamp the sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit onto one of the labels. I cut one of the black lattice pieces in half and attached them to the back of the sentiment label on either side (to extend the length) and attached the sentiment to the wall with Stampin' Dimensionals. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the jack-o-lantern faces onto the pumpkin die cuts from the kit and added them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I just love the die cuts in this kit make it so simple to decorate this card. It was so much fun designing this alternative card design and I can't wait to see what else I can create with this kit.
