12 Kits of Occasions October '20: Fall Splendor

Hey everyone, thanks for visiting today. You're in for a treat! It's time for
the 12 Kits of Occasions October Hop.

Our hostess this month is Birgit Norton (@craftingwhileiwait), and she sent
the most delightful kit full of leaves and pumpkins, and gorgeous papers, called
Fall Splendor. Well just have a look...

These were a trio of stamped pumpkins I fussy cut and colored with copics. Then I 
mounted them onto a PTI leafy die cut I had in my stash. In the center is a
sentiment Birgit included in the kit.

The sweet apple basket came die cut and ready for red and green apples (also in the kit).
Don't you love the red truck and apple basket paper? Paired it with the Greetery's
Ship Lap dies, and blessed sentiment.

I wanted Birgit's gorgeous leaf die cut to shine, so paired it with a 
Spellbinders lacy die set. 

the orange background paper was the reverse side of one of the papers included in
the kit. Can you see the tiny dots? 

Love this sweet little pumpkin! The stitched leaves, papers and tag came together 
in a snap!

And finally, this stamped and die cut solo pumpkin was colored with copics,
and added to one of the gorgeous leafy designer papers. 

Thank you, Birgit! My autumn cards grew by 5, and even have some 
adorable die cuts and papers for more!

Be sure and see what the other disigners have done.
They're sure to surprise and delight. Can't wait to
see what they did with Birgit's kit!

Each card is layered to perfection my friend! Thanks for making this kit shine with your amazing style.
