I’m having so much fun using the Stampin’ Up! Table Settings Die! Did you know that with a $250 workshop, you can purchase it (or anything else in the Holiday Mini Catalog) for only $10? What a bargain! Note: it cannot be an online order, though…you must place the order directly through me to get this hostess benefit.
I made another one of the small pumpkins from the Spiral on the Table Settings Bigz XL Die. When I first saw that piece of the die, I wondered if I ever would use the spiral. I know now that I definitely will be using it a lot! Did you see the pumpkins on the 12×12 Scrapbook page I made over on Create with Connie and Julie during Preview week? What about the table setting I posted over there yesterday? And today I have some fun fall tree ornaments posted using it!
October is birthday month for us, so I made this cute pumpkin card for my mom whose birthday is next week. I cut off a couple of the outside rings on the spiral from the Table Settings die to make it smaller to fit on the card! I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie Classic ink for some added dimension. The leaf I stamped from the Autumn Splendor Stamp set in Chocolate Chip Classic ink on Always Artichoke cardstock, cut it out and sponged the edges with Always Artichoke Classic ink. The stem I cut free hand from Chocolate Chip cardstock.
The base card is Pumpkin Pie cardstock and I layered a 4×4 piece of Autumn Meadows Designer Paper on top. I added some Always Artichoke cardstock punched with the Eyelet Border punch across the bottom and added Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon to hide the seam there. For behind the pumpkin, I cut a square of Kraft cardstock and layered it on Always Artichoke cardstock and sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. I used the 3/8 Corner Rounder on the top two corners of each layer. I also used my Paper Piercing Tool and the Piercing mat to punch a small design in the upper right corner…it was kind of blank there and I think it dresses it up a little! The pumpkin I added on top with some Stampin’ Dimensionals! Finally, I added the birthday greeting from On Your Birthday in Chocolate Chip Classic ink.
