13 Projects for Fall/Halloween-Project #2: Halloween Pumpkin Card


     Hello and welcome back to my blog and my 13 Projects for Fall/ Halloween event. Today I have a really cute card for you with a bunch of pumpkins telling you"Thank You." I came up with this idea the minute I saw this stamp set in the new 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog. This catalog will be available in just a few days, Sept 1st, to all customers! I highly suggest purchasing this bundle because not only is it good for Halloween, but also Fall and Thanksgiving as well. And who just doesn't love a pumpkin?
     I first started with using the Wood Crate Framelits to die cut the crate out from the Wood DSP (Designer Series Paper) stack. I only needed the front of the crate so I positioned the die over the paper as not to waste any and cut out anything unnecessary. I then stamped a bunch of the pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and die cut them as well.


     Now this is pretty cool. You will notice when you get your catalog or view it on my Stampin' Up! store on Sept 1st that there are some cute pumpkins on one of the pieces of the Spooky Night DSP (Designer Series Paper) that the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits from this bundle will die cut as well! No fussy cutting these! Isn't that awesome! Another plus to getting this bundle. I did, however, fussy cut some of the pumpkins from a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP.


     I created my card base from a piece of Very Vanilla cut to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded in half. I cut a piece of the Spooky Night DSP to 4" x 3-1/4" and glued it onto the top portion of the card base. I then cut a piece of Very Vanilla to 4" x 2-1/4" and embossed it with the Brick TIEF. I glued this onto the bottom of my card base.
     Next, I arranged the pumpkins around and behind the wood crate until I liked it. I used Dimensionals to pop up the crate to create a 3D effect. I placed some of the pumpkins on the front of the crate as well.


     Now time for my sentiment. I looked at a few stamp sets for a cute punny saying for my card and finally decided on one from the Beautiful Bouquet set. I stamped it in Basic Black onto a piece of Very Vanilla and used my Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut it out. Then I die cut out a piece of Lemon Lime Twist with the Layering Squares Framelits to mat it and glued it to the top of my card.


     I don't like leaving the inside naked so I stamped a few leaf branches, also from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, on the inside as well, and there you have it! If you have any questions on how I made this cute card just send me an email scrapnmom@live.com or contact me here.

Here are the supplies I used for this card:
