Hello and welcome back to another hop around the globe with my fellow Demonstrators sharing projects around ‘Fall or Thanksgiving’. You may be starting out with me or just arrived from someone else along the way, but you won’t want to miss anyone’s inspiration, so I’ve listed everyone participating this month at the bottom of this post.
I don’t usually do many Halloween projects, but having purchased the Harvest Hellos stamp and punch bundle #153037, it was my perfect ‘go to’ for todays themed project.
Firstly, I stamped three pumpkin images onto Pumpkin Pie card #108601 using Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ pad #147086. These were punched out using the Apple Builder punch #150663. I used a sponge and Pumpkin Pie ink to go round the edges of the stamped images and ‘smooch’ over the curved lined of the pumpkin, to add dimension.
I added an Early Espresso card #121686 layer to my Garden Green base card #108605. Next I cut a Very Vanilla card #106550, and inked the raised inside of my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder #152320 using Crumb Cake ink #126975 before processing through Big Shot. This left the nice inked detail, which was attached to the card.
I stamped the pumpkin face on the one of my pumpkins then stacked them, the top one flat and raised the others using Stampin’ Dimensionals #104430.
To create the curly greenery at the top of pumpkins, I cut very narrow strips of Garden Green card and wound round a cocktail stick, rolling it between my fingers to ‘hold the fold’. Short lengths were attached to the top of the pumpkins using Tombow Multipurpose adhesive #110755.
To finish, I stamped the stalks and leaves, both using Garden Green card, onto scraps of card an attached some flat and some on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My Sunday project featured a messy inking technique and I had some scraps still lying on my desk when creating for this project. I stamped some of the maple style leaf image, using Garden Green ink, ‘fussy cut’ by hand and layered them along the bottom of my card.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project today. Please leave me a quick comment before hopping to Katie’s Blog to see what she has to share with you today.
