Welcome to you!  Today I made my own pumpkin because that’s what you have to do when you don’t have a pumpkin stamp, lol!

There it is in all of its shiny metallic glory!  I’m pretty proud of it actually and thankful that I purchased the beautiful Brushed Metallic Cardstock(153524) to use.  Then, all it took was the Layering Ovals dies(the smallest one) to cut out 5 ovals!  Then, to add some texture, out came the Subtle embossing folder.  I attached each oval using our Mini Glue Dots to form the pumpkin shape.  The leaves are courtesy of the Forever Blossoms stamp set and matching Cherry Blossom Dies.

I really liked the card layout challenge posted by The Paper Players and it fit well with my autumn-themed card.

Here’s the list of products used.

  2. That’s the sign of a talented crafter Cynthia – one who can improvise when they don’t have what they really want to hand! And a great shiny pumpkin to boot. Thanks for making a great card with my Paper Players challenge sketch this week!

    1. Thanks so much Joanne. A stamper’s gotta do what a stamper can do!
