Paper Pumpkin Alternative CASE

Lulu and DoraI’m still traveling and I can’t wait to get home to my puppies! Ok, so really, they’re 140 pounds of dog, but they’re my babies. I’m sure they miss me too and aren’t sleeping on the bed or being naughty in any way…

Before we hit the road, I wanted to show you an alternate card you can do with the March 2018 Paper Pumpkin – May Good Things Grow.  This was the fifth-anniversary kit and it was filled to overflowing with amazing materials.


I CASE’d a card from TheJollyFatElf.  You can see her original here. I used her inspiration to meet the requirements for the latest Tic Tac Tic Tac Toe ChallengeToe Challenge.

This was the board for challenge 043:



I selected the middle row, mainly because I had half a sheet of 12×12 kraft paper from the holiday catalog with me to play with. I wasn’t quite sure what ‘cas‘ was so I eliminated the row and column that included that entry.  Later I did some research and it means Clean and Simple.  I stuck with my original selection.

Free – Kraft – Stitched.  Thank goodness I packed my Stitched Shapes Framelits.




March Paper Pumpkin tttc043I used Kraft paper as the base for the card and used the piece I cut off to die cut the oval for the sentiment.

The Fresh Fig layer and patterned paper came from the Paper Pumpkin kit. The layer was a card I cut in half and the scalloped paper is the flap from one of the kit envelopes.  The rose paper was also in the kit.  The vintage vibe to this kit was so much fun to work with.  In the next few days, I’ll post the other alternates I made.  But, for now, here is the card for the challenge.

The ribbon and twine I used both came from the kit as well as the little pearl.  I like the simple elegance of this card.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso, also included in the kit with the supplied stamp set.

Crafting while traveling.  I think it was a success, but I’m ready to go home and have all of my favorite items at my fingertips – plus I’m just about out of adhesive.
