November Step It Up Blog Hop - Marbled Pumpkin Leaves


Welcome to the November 2016 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! The theme is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. This month I created a background design with Shaving Cream and ink refills, and used the October Paper Pumpkin kit to create two cards. The first card was created pretty much the same way the kit showed to assemble the cards, except I used the punched out layer of leaves as a stencil for the background I created for the stepped up card!


Stampin' Supplies: October 2016 Paper Pumpkin Season of Gratitude stamp set, All Card Stock was included in kit: Tip Top Taupe, Very Vanilla (crimped), Cajun Craze label, Delightful Dijon banner; Chocolate Chip ink pad (included in Paper Pumpkin kit), Cajun Craze+Delightful Dijon+Pumpkin Pie ink refills (used in Shaving Cream for background), Old Olive Baker's Twine (in kit), Sequins (in kit).

My stepped up version also uses the leaf pieces that were punched out from the kit, to sponge around (with Versamark) for a subtle coordinating background. And I used the Best Badge Punch for the sentiment and banner in place of the die cuts that came in the Paper Pumpkin Kit.
