It’s Merry Monday! Today’s Projects Inspired by Paper Pumpkin!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is officially the Christmas season!  I have often mentioned that the Christmas Paper Pumpkin kits are my favorite.  This past weekend, I was going through old Paper Pumpkin samples, and I came across two cards which were both from the November 2015 kit.  I REALLY loved the cards from that kit…they are probably among my top three kits in all the time I’ve been a subscriber.  As I looked at them, I decided that I was going to try to re-create them using current projects.  So I did, and the finished cards are what I am sharing with you today!

Before I get into details about the new ones, I wanted to share what the originals looked like:

I just LOVE the color combination on these cards!  Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive are my absolute favorite Christmas color combo.  For the new versions, I had to switch the colors up a bit, but I still love the way they look together!

For my cards, I used Designer Series paper from two different packages.  The DSP I used in the first card is from the All is Bright DSP.  The paper on the other is from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Main colors on both cards are Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla!

I love the originals of these cards, but I really love the new versions as well!  All this week, I will be featuring cards inspired by others I found online.  I need to make a bunch of cards for my school bazaar this coming weekend, and I need ideas I can do quickly and not have to think too much about!  I hope you’ll check back this week for something new each day!
