Here’s card #3 featuring CUTplorations Bloomtangled Cover Plate #2. This time I placed the Simply Sentiment die cut “Big hugs” on top of a Pierced Curly Frames/Tags Nesting die cut.

I made a stencil with CUTplorations Bloomtangled Cover Plate #2 to create card #4. I used the Simply Sentiment die “Big hugs” to inlay the sentiment on this card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the cards that I made with these fabulous new products. I had so much fun with them and have more cards to share with you at a later date. I couldn’t stop creating. The possibilities are endless!

P.S. Would you like to know how to make the pumpkin itself? My friend, Ashley, made this one. She works at a local lumber yard and building supply store, S. W. Collins.   S.W. Collins recently sponsored an “Ladies Night” where Ashley and her co-workers provided several crafts and refreshments.  I attended the event (so fun!) and painted a pumpkin that had been cut and glued together. I would like to thank Jason, Ashley and all of the employees at S.W. Collins for their generosity and hospitality.

 

 

 

Please see the attached link below for where Ashley got the original idea.

Here are Ashley’s Instructions:
Materials:

Pine Board: 1X4X6 is the size I used the most.
Wood Glue (I used Titebond Fast setting)  or Hot Glue
Sanding Paper- 220 Grit
A Stick
Paint- The tutorial I saw used spray paint, but any paint suitable for
wood will work!
Ribbon

Instructions:

Measure and cut the wood. I started out with a 3″ piece and did 1″
increments up to 6″ and then back down to 3″. (3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 5″, 4″,
3″) I played around with these measurements a lot to get various sized
pumpkins. (4″, 5″, 6″, 5″, 4″ was another one I used a lot).

Then sand down the corners and any rough edges of the wood.

Starting with the smallest piece, glue each of the cut pieces of wood
together. Allow to dry for a minimum of 30 minutes before you do
anything more to the pumpkin.

Once the pumpkin is dry, you can paint it!

After the paint dries then secure the stick to the top for the stem and
tie it off with a ribbon!
