Today’s cards were created with the left overs from my Paper Pumpkin Kit and stamp set.
But I know I can use these with our other products too for more great fall cards when I’ve finished up using my supplies from the kit – And there are a ton of things left, even after these cards.
Here are close ups of each card.
For this first one I stamped the sentiment and then scored the banner twice on each side to create a pop up effect – sooo easy to do!

This month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a great stamp set and Merry Merlot Ink Spot – perfect for coloring with. And since I think monochromatic cards are always striking that’s where I started. So today’s card is one that I created simply by adding our Very Vanilla Note Cards, some card stock, and our Blender Pens! It is definitely what I consider #simplestamping which is always a great thing!
This card highlights one of our simple coloring techniques – and Blender Pens are a great tool to add to your supplies. Not only is it versatile it also gives you a lot of bang for your buck, since you’ll get 3 of them in your package. The options are endless, simply reach for your favorite color ink pad! This makes them great for a newer stamper just building their supplies or even a seasoned stamper like me.

Want A Splash of Color?
Love color? Here are some more cards I made using the same layout idea. They play with a bit of color from past Paper Pumpkin Ink Spots.
This first card still stamps the branches and sentiment in Merry Merlot but uses the Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot ink spots to color the berries. And how about this one? This time I used Early Espresso to stamp the branches and added Crushed Curry to the mix along.
What do you think? Monochromatic or color? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like?
Then stop back by when I’ll be sharing what I made with the left over pieces and the Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add On Bundle.
Can you believe I’ve got all of this left over to create with?

The A Little Smile Kit was so much fun and it was slam packed with lots of things to use once the projects were made that I could resist do some more cards – so this time I reached for my Whisper White Note Card and started stamping.
I’ve made two of these already, but thought I’d take a picture of just how much I still have to work with from the kit.
