How I created three Alternative Handmade Cards using August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin Up

Today I would like to share with you three different card ideas using pieces from the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin Up. Each card has a different layout and uses fun techniques. One of the techniques shown below is how to use the sponge daubers to change the color of the leaves in the kit. On another card I create a repeating pattern with the wreath pieces. The last card I show you how to create a depth on a piece of cardstock by using a darker ink with the sponge daubers.

I hope you enjoy these cards! Let me know in the comments below if you make these cards or are inspired by them. I would love to hear from you.
