Halloween Pumpkin

It has started!  My kiddo's have brought home their first crop of pumpkins... school sent home their first mini-pumpkin of the season, my daughter dropped it as she ran to the car at pick-up.  Assured that yes, yes we cannnn make a pumpkin pie from it (ummm - really, is this possible?!?! eek!).  We came home to create this sweet shaped card that is sure to add flavor to a friend's day.
 
What do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Share this, Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet, Google+ this and Follow Me on these channels!  (YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, too!)
Taking a Pumpkin Pie card stock (#105117) scored at 4-1/4" this 5-1/2" wide card is ideal to create a 3D Pumpkin!  Adding fun accents, texture, shine... and this is a card to be savored!
 
Run this through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine* (#113439) with the Woodgrain embossing folder (#127821) to mimic the texture of the pumpkin.  Fold and then using the Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658) and the large scalloped oval from the Ovals collection (#129381) making sure to leave a section on the top that will NOT Be cut - lol.

Running Old Olive card stock (#100702) through the Big Shot and the Autumn Accents Bigz die (#127812) to create these great leaves.  Adding texture with the Woodgrain embossing folder is a fun cohesive look.
 
Using the Chocolate chip Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (#130132) to create this cute Acorn from the Autumn Accent Bigz.  Create the 'stem' from our Decorative Label Punch (#120907) and this paper for two stems from one punch!
When you have a fun card with texture... sometimes it's a blast to add a dash of shine!  The amazing Gold Foil Sheet (#132622 - Holiday pg 28) is a great accent.  Stamping this Happy Halloween from the Delightful Dozen stamp set (#122652) fits PERFECTLY in the Modern Label Punch (#119849). 
 
In order to make a sentiment stay on this paper, use the yummy scented (reminds me of the fun ditto machines created during test days - lol) Jet Black Stazon ink (#101406).  This permanent solvent ink dries quick and can be stamped on a vast array of surfaces.  From glass to surfaces like this Gold Foil sheet, Stazon is a must for your crafting supply.
I love how it fits in the modern label punch, looks so sharp on the textured card, holding it's own next to this patterned acorn.
I'm so glad you came by today!  I try to post daily and hope to see you visit often.  Please share me with your friends and family!!  I hope this card makes your day tasty!  JOIN ME in my upcoming, on-going, virtural optioned Big Shot Club!  CLICK HERE to see MORE on the FUN you will have!
 
This pumpkin is sure to warm the day of someone special!  Add some texture and joy to a friend's life.  Send a card, it's a sure fire way to bless someone.  This Pumpkin Card is ideal for Fall and nods to Halloween and Harvest.  Bring home this pumpkin, or send it out, with no fear of work in the kitchen or messy, broken pumpkins (lol).

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
