PTI MIM #262: Pumpkin Stamps 3 Ways

Nichole's famous last words when it comes to PTI's challenges is to just have fun. This week's Make It Monday by Ashley encourages us to use a pumpkin stamp in three ways. Last Monday I realized I don't own a pumpkin stamp so figured I couldn't play along. Well, I had to get a bit creative so it limited me to only make one card tonight, but I see now I'm not the only one. Hopefully our entries qualify.

For my pumpkin, I traced a cookie cutter from watercolor paper, fussy cut and then ink blended in Orange Zest. Used an H2O brush to add texture to the pumpkin. The stem was traced, cut a second time and stamped in Kraft using the striped stamp from Grunge Me. I also used my H2O brush to blend those lines a bit. With Ripe Avocado ink I colored a piece of white crochet thread before tying a bow around the pumpkin stem.

Black card stock pieces were cut with Jolly Holiday Dies for starry eyes, Birthday Style Die garland piece for the mouth and a 1/4 inch punch for the circular nose.   The sentiment from Scene It: Celebration was stamped on a Kraft Bubble Talk die cut using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The Rustic Cream card base was ink blended in Ripe Avocado over the leafy stencil from the Garden Gate Kit. My pumpkin and sentiment bubble were popped up to finish this Fall birthday card.

Stamps: Scene It: Celebration and Grunge Me
