Chalk It Up to Loving Paper Pumpkin (part 3)

For the past couple days, I've shown you some of the cards and other projects I've created using the supplies from the August Paper Pumpkin kit, Chalk It Up to Love.  Today, I have another set of 5 cards I created with materials from the kit (plus a few extras).  These are A2 size cards that I made using pieces cut from one of the boxes in the kit.  The card bases are either Basic Black or Pink Pirouette.  I used strips of Very Vanilla card stock on the cards as well.

By the time I created these cards, I'd used up all of the Basic Black tags that came in the kit, but fortunately had quite a few ovals on hand (actually leftover from making these cards earlier this year), which I was able to use.  And, I still had lots of the flowers I'd punched out and some leaves I cut from Gold Foil with the Bird Builder Punch.

I'd also been making cards from the Watercolor Wishes kit right before I created these, and ended up using the stamp set from that kit for the greetings on these.  The doodle embellishments are from the Chalk It Up to Love stamp set that came in the Paper Pumpkin kit.

How do you like the Subtles Candy Dots (Pink Pirouette) in the flower centers for the cards above and below?

(The hearts stamped under the "thanks" are also from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set).

I used a gold pen to doodle the flower centers and some dots on the greeting oval for this card.  Here are some close ups:

For the last card, I really went crazy with the flowers and leaves:

 I also sponged around the oval with the Rose Pink Chalk Ink (from the 2015 Occasions Catalog):

I hope you've enjoyed these projects!!!  Can you believe I was able to make 17 cards, 2 embellished boxes and one flower adorned tag from this kit?!
