Paper Pumpkin Possibilities September Blog Hop Haunts & Harvest

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities September Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas featuring the Haunts & Harvest Kit. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to create your own wonderful projects for Fall and Halloween. 
This month's kit is so fun and perfect for sharing Fall and Halloween treats with the people in your life. Need a gift for a teacher? Why not the cute apple. Halloween treats for your kids? The jack-o-lanterns are perfect. Place setting decorations for Thanksgiving? The pumpkins are a wonderful addition to give thanks for family and friends. When I look at this kit, it is perfect for so many occasions and I struggled to come up with an alternative that used any of the supplies to create the treat holders. So instead, I decided to create a card design using the exclusive stamp set in the kit and combined it with the coordinating colors listed in the directions. At this time of year, we can all use clean and simple cards to show the people we love how much we care.
For my alternative card design, I used the solid leaf images with the detailed line images to create a Fall background design. The colors I chose were Pale Papaya, Poppy Parade, Soft Succulent, Pumpkin Pie and I added Early Espresso for the line detail and sentiment. I love the way these beautiful colors pop against the Basic White cardstock background. This Fall card design could be used for a variety of occasions and the sentiments from the exclusive stamp set in the kit are perfect for this design.

The wonderful Fall colors bring this card design to life. I love the way these colors work together to create this beautiful Thank You card. The stamp images are wonderful and I stamped the solid images first and then stamped the lined image on top with Early Espresso Classic ink to complete the design. I chose Early Espresso instead of Black because I thought it worked better with these pretty Fall colors and was less harsh. I also used the Early Espresso Classic ink to stamp the sentiment onto the sentiment tag that I die cut with one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies. I tied a bow of White Baker's Twine around a piece of Pale Papaya Ribbon that I threaded through the hole of the sentiment tag. I added the tag to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. For a touch of bling, I add several Champagne Rhinestones to coordinate with the Fall colors.
