I've never tried to grow pumpkins myself, but have always enjoyed buying a bunch to decorate my front porch or even my stairs inside the house. As it got closer to Halloween, my kids would pick the one they wanted to carve and away we went. They started out pretty simple and got more complicated designs the older they grew. I'll never forget the year Sam and Jeff carved the Minnesota Vikings logo on a pumpkin in perfect detail. Once the knives could no longer do the job, out came the drill!
In the new Holiday Catalog, there's stamp and framelit set making it easy for you to create your own pumpkin patch or Halloween Jack-o-lanterns! I also wanted to give the new star border punch a try so here's what I came up with:
My next attempt at this will use Night of Navy for the background cardstock... way more appropriate for a night time starry ski... I just didn't think of it at the time I made this.
This is one of the many cards you will be able to make at my Card Buffet next week! Hope you can make it!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
