Detailed Pumpkins


I began with the colorful pumpkin, which was easily colored using the “ink to stamp” technique. I placed the Pretty Pumpkin stamp on the Stamparatus platform, on top of Basic White Cardstock. The paper is held down by magnets, so it doesn’t move. Then, I lowered the lid of the Stamparatus, picked up the stamp, inked a small section of the stamp with a Stampin’ Write Marker, and lowered the lid to the paper. I added one color at a time, and repeated the process until I was satisfied with the amount of color.

I used Real Red and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers, and an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. You have to stamp quickly with Stampin’ Blends, because they dry quickly.


Next, I used Detailed Pumpkin Dies to cut the colorful pumpkin, and the tall Basic White Pumpkin. Don’t you love the intricate pattern? And, How about those cute leaves at the top of the pumpkin?


For the background, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 4 1/4″. This is layered on Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Old Olive, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die. The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Prior to gluing the layers together, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive Ink. “If friends were pumpkins I’d pick you” is from the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set.

While I was cleaning up my workspace, a Bumblebee Trinket landed on my card, and I decided to let her stay.



I was inspired by the Paper Players.
