Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is Focus on the Sentiment. Our Design Team are showcasing a sentiment as the focal point of their project. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals share with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
This little girl was given the endearing nickname of “Pumpkin,” and wanted to be dressed as a pumpkin for Halloween.
Looking through my Stampin’ Up! supplies, she said we had everything we needed! Most importantly, Pumpkin wanted to say “boo!,” which she said I could create with the Alphabest Bundle.
I stamped the letters “b-o-o,” and the exclamation point, in Orchid Oasis Ink, and Pumpkin used the Best Label Punch for cutting. She said punching was her favorite thing to do.
For the background, Pumpkin chose Basic White Cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″), cut with a Split Card Textures Die, because she thought it looked like spider webs. And, she wanted me to stamp the scary spider, from her Bewitching Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink. She loved that the tiny dots matched the frame around the Alphabest letters.
There was no question about the card base (8 1/2″ X 51 /2″, folded at 4 1/4″), because black would be the best for Halloween.
Last, but not least, we made Pumpkin’s costume. Her shoes and socks were stamped in Memento Black Ink on the card front, and colored with Pumpkin Pie and Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends. She made sure her socks matched the sentiment, and held really still, so I wouldn’t go outside the lines.
The pumpkin is from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cut with a Rustic Pumpkin Die. After coloring with Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, I put it over Pumpkin’s head, attaching it with Dimensionals.
Pumpkin is quite pleased with her costume, and can’t wait for everyone at the Pals Blog Hop to see it!
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 12th when our theme will be a color challenge!
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
