RI SOTW - Round Pumpkin


Welcome to another Repeat Impressions Stamp of  the Week!  This week's special stamp is Round Pumpkin (#2318-G).  I added the Happy face (#2328-G) to mine and created a little pumpkin scene using Tall Pumpkin (#2310-G).  Wendy has a series of pumpkin shapes and faces that you can mix and match to create your own Jack O'lantern - very fun!  All of the tall pumpkins were paper pieced using papers from Memory Box's Blackbird collection.  I colored the Round Pumpkin image using Copic markers and used a yellow Spica pen to color in the face.  It's popped up on dimensional tape.

I cut up a few strands of raffia to make the hay 'bed' they are sitting in and also wrapped raffia around the patterned paper layers.  I used a Martha Stewart button punch to create the three buttons out of the same papers I used for the pumpkins.  They were all tied with raffia.  My card is based on this week's Sketch for you to try.

Please head over to the Repeat Impressions blog to get all the details on getting this versatile pumpkin image at half price.  While you're there, be sure to check out the cards the rest of the design team has made!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!
