PTI Make it Monday #262 ~ Pumpkin Stamps 3 Ways


Ashley is so clever to come up with this challenge, I really love it!!!!

Of course the first thing I do is to dig out all the PTI pumpkin stamps and die, I decided to use the Pumpkin Patch Die as mask on my first card....


 a lot of sponging and splatting for the background, and then I used PTI Modern Alphabet Dies for "BOO"
Last thing is to use a very very old PTI paper pad, I believe already out of stock.

Well, after all those sponging and splatting, I left with the pumpkin that looks really fun, so I used it on my second card.....


 the background stamps are the acorn and leaves from PTI Falling Leaves Stamp Set, the sentiment "happy fall" is also from the same stamp set......


other PTI products behind the pumpkins are Frame Out #12 Die and  It's Official 8x8 Patterned Paper Pad.

I actually like the second card a lot better than the first, but the third card is my favorite of all three....


using the same pumpkin dies, I add glitters to them....


I stamped the pumpkins on vellum, embossed with white embossing powder and then layered it over grey card stock. The pumpkin stamps for the background is PTI Vintage Picnic Stamp Set


the sentiment is from PTI Pumpkin Patch Stamp Set and the banner is one of my favorite die - PTI Tag Sale Quilted Die


so  here's my Pumpkin Stamps 3 Ways, what do you think?

.....................................


In just a few hours, we are leaving for a road trip (I love road trip because Papi can come along). Going for a short break that I needed so badly, to be close to the ocean, ahhhh...... remember? I am a mermaid at heart!

Wonderful work, Kirsty! I agree--that 3rd one is my favorite--actually one of my all-time favorite cards!

I really like how each card is completely disparate from the other. I'd struggle to do that, but you did it here and made each special in their own way. I just can't pick a favorite, though the glitter has to rank slightly higher, doesn't it!
