Pumpkin love

I recently won this sweet stamp set from Waffle Flowers Crafts and wanted to make something a little different with the poppy pod.  So, I turned it into pumpkins!  I masked the bottom of the pod and stamped it 3 times on cardstock, also masking the two outer pumpkins so the middle would look cropped.  I should have documented this process but I didn't as this was actually made over a couple days due to time factors and life getting in the way.  It happens, right?! 

After stamping the pumpkins with black ink, I colored with my distress markers and painted a little bit with Twinkling H20 shimmer paints for shine. 

Now, for the documented part;  I glued some burlap ribbon then took a strip of May Arts green net ribbon and folded it in half, glued the ends and left a gap.  I decided to fill that gap with an orange paper straw for fun and color.  I glued that to the burlap, then raised my pumpkins with pop dots.  The sentiment was heat embossed for a bolder look and was also part of this stamp kit.  The final touch is  Freckled Fawn neon enamel dots.  I love how this turned out!


  1. OMG, pupmkins! This is SO clever, Terri!

  2. Thanks so much Paperella! Yeah, perfect idea for fall cards, right? It doubles as a poppy pod AND a pumpkin, LOL. Glad you like it. I'm kinda crazy like that.
