I wanted to create some fall spirit and I made two cute pumpkins. Very simple. I made this project for the Lawnscaping Challenge, where we had to create a project based on a fall themed mood board.
I started by die cutting circles from orange cardstock. I used the Double Stitched Circle STAX from My Favorite Things. I die cut nine circles for one pumpkin. Every circle I folded in half and I cut the two edges off. This way the pumpkin can stand.
I put double sided tape on one side of the folded circle and adhered it to another folded circle. I continued this action until I put them all together. The last folded circle has to be adhered on both sides, to close and create the pumpkin.
For the stem in the middle, I used a cinnamon stick. I just places it in the middle of the pumpkin. I die cut one more circle, from green cardstock and with a smaller circle die, and folded this as well. This one I used as a leaf and adhered on top of the pumpkin.
For the second pumpkin, I used a smaller circle die and a darker shade of orange cardstock.
I wanted to add a small sentiment tag to it and die cut yet another circle. This time from white cardstock. I added it to a green scalloped shape, that I die cut with the Scalloped Circle Stackables from Lawn Fawn. I adhered them together.
I stamped the two pumpkin images from the Happy Harvest stamp set, from Lawn Fawn. I colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Pumpkins: Y38 – YR04 – YR07/ E25
Ground: C2 – C0
I stamped the sentiment with Pumpkin Spice Ink from Lawn Fawn, fussy cut the images and adhered the pumpkins to the tag, with foam tape.
