Those of you who know me know that I am obsessed with those Paper Pumpkin all-inclusive kits that Stampin' Up! puts out monthly. I create and publish videos each month where I show how to make lots of alternate projects from the supplies that come in the kits. I share the ideas here on my blog and on YouTube. I pin alternate Paper Pumpkin projects on Pinterest, I help to manage the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Facebook, AND I even paint my fingernails to coordinate with the kits colors since my hands are mainly what people see in my videos. hahaha

But this week I am going even further in my passion for this product. I am holding an event tonight called the BIG Fall Palooza where attendees will get spoiled in Paper Pumpkin gifts, prizes, make-n-takes, information, samples, and treats. (Yes…treats! I've been baking up a storm and will be serving pumpkin-flavored bars, cake, muffins, chips, and juice!)

This will be one of the make-n-takes we put together. I used the October Paper Pumpkin kit supplies and a few other products listed below.

October 2016 Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin kit… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out!


  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" folded in half to create the card base
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Crumb Cake piece from kit: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"


  • Cut the Vanilla die-cut leaf paper from the kit into thirds.
  • Stamp and sponge the leaf.
  • Assemble card as shown and be sure to attach the leaf with a Dimensional so it stands out more. (I even attached mine so that the cardstock underneath shows slightly on one side creating even more of a shadowy appearance.)
  • Stamp the sentiment last so you can place it directly underneath your leaf.

Supplies Used:

  • October 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit
