With all the fun new products in the Holiday Catalog sometimes stamp sets from the Annual Catalog can get overlooked for seasonal cards. While the Halloween themed sets in the Holiday catalog are super cute I just don't make very many Halloween cards so I try to use other sets in ways that fit the season.
I thought that the Swirly Bird stamp set and the coordinating Swirly Scribbles thinlets would be a great fit for making pumpkins for a fall card. You could even add a jack-o-lantern face to make it Halloween. I think all of my stampers at stamp club last week could tell they were pumpkins which I was happy about since when I asked the boys what they looked like Alex replied, "Peaches!" *sigh*. Hopefully you see pumpkins too!
Do you recognize the stem stamps? The smaller one is the little flag intended for the top of the sail boat, and the larger stem is the boat hull turned sideways. Pretty neat huh? Make your stamps work for you!
The smaller pumpkin is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and then the swirl is added in Tangerine Tango ink. The stem and leaf are stamped in Old Olive.
The larger pumpkin swirl is die cut out of Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper. I glued that down to a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then cut around the shape to get the layered circle. I die cut 2 leaves out of Old Olive cardstock. The larger leaf is popped with a dimensional.
The sentiment is from One Big Meaning and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
