Pumpkin and Ghost Punch Art

Paper Pals Arts has a FUN sketch this week and I finally got a chance to play along…nothing like the last minute! 


My Punch Class did a card SIMILAR to this last month…a different layout.  But, I'm sure they will appreciate another way to use the same punch art elements for a totally different looking card!  I've seen several different versions of the pumpkins and ghosts going around…so here is mine!



I started with a base card of Old Olive.  I used Night of Navy and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Spider Web Impressions Folder.  The pumpkins are made with 3 wide ovals from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and sponged with Tangerine Tango Classic Ink.  The stem is free-hand cut from Early Espresso and the vine is punched from the Two-Step Bird Punch!  The Ghost is the Owl Punch turned upside down with the legs cut off.  The mouth is free-hand cut, too.  The moon is stamped with the greeting from Grateful Greetings with Basic Black on Daffodil Delight and punched with the 1 3/8 Circle Punch.  I sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango.


I love using the Satin Ribbon this way…I laid down a strip of Sticky Strip and then ruffled the ribbon across the bottom.  I added a large Pumpkin Pie Designer Button with an Old Olive Glimmer Brad inside it!  FUN!
