August 2014 Paper Pumpkin - Alternate Card Ideas

Seriously Amazing Kit August 2014
This months Paper Pumpkin kit was Seriously Amazing. ;-) Yes, it was! 8 cards and some pretty cool envelopes, with enough extra supplies to make more cards, or use for other projects!
I'm sharing some of my alternate projects this week, made using the supplies from the kit.

Paper Pumpkin August 2014 - Alternate with "Bokeh" Technique
Ok. Maybe not the standard Bokeh technique, but I tried my version! LOL I used sponge daubers and dabbed Strawberry Slush and Hello Honey over the whole card, trying to get the circular sponge rather than the usual soft blend with the daubers. Next I added some sponge dauber circles in Metallic Gold Encore Pad. Then I used the dot stamp from this months kit and added some more gold. Adding some sponge dauber dabs of Whisper white, and then the sprinkle of dots from Endless Wishes in Strawberry Slush, and then I had to STEP AWAY FROM THE CARD....
LOL Trimmed down and mounted on a siple white base, a little yellow bakers twine at the top, DONE!
and then I added the pink kit seqins and a gold one from the Gold Seqin Trim. OK now done... ok...

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit and Endless Wishes
This one was also an exercise in excess... I used some words from the Endless Wishes set, in Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow stamped randomly across the die cut. I had to layer the Mossy meadow because it had just become a blur of yellow! I added the pink seqins again - love those! - and mounted it over a Strawberry Slush cardstock layer. I used half of a card base from the original kit and mounted that onto a Hello Honey base. It reminds me of a Year Book, or maybe graffiti. What do you think?

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Idea - Gift Tag
This last one today is a Gift Tag. I used one of the smaller cards from the kit, a banner from the kit, and one of those card bases I had cut down. Added the circe and thread to the corner, and its a cute little tie on. An easy alternate.
