Paper Piecings by Nikki Fall Celebrations Hop

Welcome to the PPbN Design Team Fall Celebrations Hop.  Today we (Kimi and Mama from LoveBug Creations) are showing off some projects to get you in the groove for some autumn fun.

The hop line up is as follows:
Nikki -
Patti -

We were asked to step out of our comfort zone and try something new so I (Mama) decided to create some triple-stamped Halloween cards – they are so much fun to make and each one can be different from the next!

PPbN recently posted a scavenger hunt-style "freebie" of a cat in a pumpkin – did you locate it within the online store at

A closer picture of the two cards - can you spot the differences??  Both were fussy cut and gel-pen highlighted for extra dimension.  The "pumpkin kitty" on the right is on an Action Wobble!

This little character has some ribbon to dress up the card and patterned paper for each layer.

This card uses only solid-colored SU cardstock for each of the mat layers - both were stamped with Halloween stamps from Peachy Keen.  The inks were orange and black.........traditional Halloween colors!  For the stamped layers I used Confetti Cream by SU.

Hi everyone!!! For my project I (Kimi) used Nikki's "You Gobble Me Up" pattern! I cut out this little cutie, made some pattern paper from part of the title, added a wobble (cause who doesn't love some movement on a card?!?!?) and then tried something I've never done! I made the sign! It was a lot easier then I thought it would be!! Added some ribbon and it was good to go! I thought it turned out super cute and my little turkey boy doesn't want to be eaten!!! :)
