Chalk It Up to Loving Paper Pumpkin (Part 2)

Yesterday, I showed you the first set of cards I created using the supplies from the August Paper Pumpkin kit, Chalk It Up to Love.  Today, I have another set of 6 cards I created with materials from the kit (plus a few extras).  You might recall from yesterday's post that I had cut apart the cards that came into the kit so I could double the card making fun.  These are A2 size cards that I made using the halves of the cards (originally 3-1/2 x 5").  The card bases are either Very Vanilla or Pink Pirouette.  

I only had three of Basic Black tags that came in the kit left (you'll see those on the cards with Pink Pirouette bases), but fortunately had some ovals on hand (actually leftover from making these cards earlier this year), which I was able to substitute.  And, I had fun using the flowers I'd punched out as well as some leaves I cut from Gold Foil with the Bird Builder Punch.

For the last three cards, I added some of the pink and gold Baker's Twine from the January 2015 Filled with Love Paper Pumpkin kit (you can see the projects I created with that kit here).  On the bottom card, I also added some doodling with a gold pen.

Can you believe I still have some more cards to show you with this kit?  You won't want to miss these . . . stay tuned!
