With 1/2" circle punch, punch out 1/2 circle at the top so the gift card or tag can partially be seen. To do this, punch one panel first. Fold over other panel and line up punch with 1/2 circle already punched out and punch the second panel. It's difficult to punch 2 layers of cardstock at a time. Add 2-1/4 " x 3-1/4" Designer Paper to front and back panels. Again, line up punch with already punched section and punch again. Repeat with 2nd panel.

Swirly Squiggles Pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper

Swirly Scribbles Pumpkin

Hi Everyone! Swirly Squiggles Thinlits Die was top of my list when the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Catalog came out. BUT I hadn't dreamed of the other shapes we are all creating. This card will be used in my local card class next week. They can sub out the sentiment but I wanted to show an "adult" Halloween card option!

How good is the PUMPKIN PIE GLIMMER Paper for Fall? So good! Great for Halloween and Fall bling on our cards and projects. PLUS image if your school colors had orange in it...Awesome!

The leaves are from last month's promotion Thoughtful Branches. Stampin' UP! still has some bundles available but now they are while supplies last.

DSCN6161

General Instructions:
Using the Big Shot Precision Plate - die cut the pumpkin from Swirly Squiggles and the leaf from Thoughtful Branches. Stamp images from Thoughtful Branches and sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Using Gold Wink of Stella - spatter gold flecks.

Funky Pumpkins using Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper

Pumpkin Punch ArtHi Everyone! Todays card was inspired by some funky pumpkins I got over the weekend. I love the crazy looking ones. So I thought why not make a funky pumpkin out of the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper out of the Holiday Catalog! Below is this card in mass production mode! It will be used in an upcoming swap. What's great is that it doesn't take a lot of paper and it was fun to mix and match the patterns within the Designer Paper to put together all kinds of funky pumpkins!.

DSCN6152I can't officially call it punch art because I used the Layering Oval Framelits. So I guess it's die cut art! Ink around the edges to make each section pop.

DSCN6151General Instructions - Die cut the ovals. Ink around the edges with a sponge dauber and Cajun Craze Classic Ink. Glue ovals together. Free hand cut stem and vine. Glue in the back. Run Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Big Shot using Pretty Paisley Embossing Folder. Ink raised images. Stamp and punch sentiment. Add Gold Thread and Linen Tread behind.

Materials:
Rich Razzelberry Cardstock 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Very Vanilla Cardstock 4 x 5-1/4
Scraps of Cajun Craze and Mint Macroon Cardstock
