Fall Pumpkins

 Used my new sale die set from my last Spellbinders order to make some Fall Pumpkins:

This is a three piece die set from Spellbinders -- the pumpkin, the stem with vine piece, and the face die to make a Jack O Lantern pumpkin.  Here are the pumpkins I made:

The larger pumpkins in the photo were made with the pumpkin die set and these dies also emboss the card stock when cutting them out for more detail. I cut out all the pumpkins and sponged the edges of them for dimension and put the stem/vine piece on the pumpkins using a liquid glue. For the face pieces I used scrap black card stock and glued those pieces onto some of the pumpkins for Halloween. For the three smaller pumpkins in the photo I used two punches:

The solid pumpkin is a punch from M Stewart. The small pumpkin face punch is from EK Success. First I punched out a solid black pumpkin and then punched the face out of pumpkin coloured card stock. Using the solid pumpkin punch I punched over the punched face piece and that gave me the pumpkin shape. Used liquid glue to put the pumpkin face piece onto the solid black pumpkin piece. Used a brown marker to colour the pumpkin stem. I also sponged the edges of these smaller pumpkins for dimension. Will be making more of these for upcoming BOO Day and Fall projects.

Your cards are wonderful, but I’m intrigued by your stamp storage!!!! What kind of baking equipment was that in its first life? What a great idea!

I used an old baker's rack I picked up at a barn sale years ago to store the wood mounted stamps. Each tray held a category of stamps so that they were all organized and easy to find. Thanks for your kind comment and blog visit! Candee P
