Pumpkins made with Punches

Hello again,

I just love it when you can get more out of your punches than just an oval or circle. Not only do they make even layering options, you can turn multiple punches into say....... Pumpkins!

For this project you will need the large oval punch, which I do not have but instead the second sized oval from Creative Memories and the red blade will give you the same size. You will also need the medium oval and I am using, yet again, my leaf punch from Creative Memories.

First punch, or cut, a large oval and two medium ovals out of orange and one maple leaf out of green, for each pumpkin you want to make.

Next I sponged the edges of the orange card stock with Cajun Craze, and the green maple leaves were sponged in Old Olive.

Take a small amount of Tombow glue and apply it along each side on the back of the large oval. Then take the two medium ovals and place one on the back on each side where you placed the glue. Move them around until they are where you want them. Further apart for a fatter pumpkin or closer together for a skinnier one.

Next take the maple leaf and place it on top. I used the Scribbles Swirls Sissix Sizzlet die to make the vines for the pumpkins.

These make a nice pumpkin for placing on your scrapbook pages or on your cards.

I will show you in another post how to make this easy fence for the background, and how to use your inks to get the background.  Hope you are having a nice day.
Happy crafting, Tina
