Pumpkin Patch Projects


This is a clean and simple 5-10 minute card. I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl in Old Olive on Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged edges with Apricot Appeal. The pumpkin was made with the large oval punch, edges sponged with matching ink, stem is Modern Label punch in Mellow Moss.
The little pumpkin treat box was made from a template from a Paper Projects book by Sandra Lounsberry Foose. I like to check my library for craft and cardmaking books. If your library doesn't carry it, some will request it for you from other participating branches. Or if they are really nice they will order a copy for you! It never hurts to ask.



Time to start those Fall/Halloween projects!

The first card uses the scallop circle dies for the Big Shot and the new Sweet Centers treat cups. I used the jack-o-lantern face from Autumn Harvest with black StazOn ink, a strip of Old Olive cardstock curled, and a little tab of Kraft taffeta ribbon for the stem. Filled with Reese's Pieces. yum.

The second picture features a little pumpkin man made with the 3D ornament Big Shot die with a loop of Celery grosgrain ribbon.
The second sample is a designer paper strip pumpkin. I used the Cast A Spell designer paper with some leaves made from Mellow Moss and matching ribbon.
