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!
