Paper Pumpkin --- September #3

Just a few more cards that I have made from the September kit. 

I used the bags to cover the piece of card stock on the front of the cards.  I cut the plastic and then heated it with my heating tool to straighten it out and get the crinkle effect.  I also used the black tissue.

Paper Pumpkin --- September 2018 #2

Another card from the Paper Pumpkin September kit.

I used the Country Lane paper and the chicken wire embellishment.  The black tissue came from the kit and I used the outline paper from the bats that are in the kit to stencil the background.

The cardstock is Old Olive, Country Lane DSP, Black Tissue from the kit, and Whisper White.

I am going to get a lot of projects out of this kit.

Country Home

I simply love this stamp set.  These are a few of the cards I have made since my workshop last Sunday.  I used a piece of cotton ball to add to the cotton stamp to make it more realistic.  One suggestion at the workshop was to use the embossing paste.  I tried that and it worked out really well.  I used the Shimmery White and love the bit of shine that it added. They are shown below.  Which do you like best?
