Pumpkin Patch

Are you excited about the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini? It debuts on September 1st and is filled to the brim with adorable holiday stamp sets and accessories. One of my favorite fall sets from the Holiday Mini is Pumpkin Patch - a perfect fit for this week's Halloween Challenge at Pals Paper Arts. The pumpkins are totally customizable and are extremely versatile - ideal for Halloween as well as fall/Thanksgiving projects.
  • My card base is a 10" x 7" piece of Kraft card stock scored in half and topped with 2 layers: Dusty Durango and Chocolate Chip.
  • Two delightful (and a bit vintage) patterns create the background. The polka-dots are from Crushed Curry Patterns while the luxe hounds tooth is from Autumn Meadows Designer Series collection. (available Sept. 1st)
  • Chocolate Chip Double-Stitch ribbon hides the seam where the 2 prints meet and is finished with a bow and festive button. The sentiment, 'from our patch to yours -- happy halloween!' hangs from a hand-cut 'tag'.
  • The pumpkin panel was created using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. I stamped the oval pumpkins directly onto Very Vanilla in Pumpkin Pie ink. My round pumpkins were stamped separately in Dusty Durango and punched using my 1" Circle Punch. TIP: The 1" Circle Punch or 1.25" Circle Punch both work perfectly - the 1.25" leaves a bit of a rim around the pumpkin.
  • Some spooky faces give my pumpkins personality (the set has 3 choices) and the round pumpkins were 'popped' using Stampin' Dimensionals. A quick Old Olive matte with a Kraft Scallop Edge completes this card - no tricks here, just treats!
Play along with me at Pals Paper Arts this week! We're getting ready for all things spooky with a Halloween challenge! Can't wait to see what you create...
