3D Paper Pumpkin Trio

Hey Stampers !!

My project for today is a 3 CUTE paper pumpkins !! I made them out of lots of different papers, stamp set and accessories ... but I think they are so cute !! Take a look and tell me what you think !!

Sweet right !?!? They are 3 different sizes and use different products, so I will highlight each pumpkin and tell you what it used !! They are SO easy to make and fun too !!

This is my favourite pumpkin of the three. LOVE how it turned out !! This used the color combo of More Mustard, Garden Green and Early Espresso. The strips of More Mustard are 5-1/2"x1-1/4" and they were run through the Lace Brocade embossing folder. So elegant !! They were then all stuck on one end to a 1-3/4" Circle of cardstock (a second punch went on after the pieces were adhered to make it look nice and give a stronger hold) and then they same "punch sandwich" was used on the top after I curved the pieces into the pumpkin shape. Easy !! Then came the decorating. The stem was made with a scrap strip of Early Espresso rolled up and adhered to a 3/4" Espresso circle with glue dots. This was put on the top of the pumpkin and tied with some Very Vanilla Seambinding. The leaves are from the gently Falling stamp set and I cut them out with my paper snips. Then some skinny strips of Garden Green were curled around my paper piercer to look like little vines. I adhered these with glue dots as well. The sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases and uses the Word Window and Modern Label punches. So cute !!

This pumpkin uses the color combo of Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade and Soft Suede. The strips are 1"x 8-1/2" and embossed with the Square Lattice folder. It was made in the same fashion as the Mustard one, of course. The leaves for this one are from the Wonderfall set and I cut them with the Autumn Accents die. The sentiment is from the retired Grateful Greetings stamp set. 

This one is the BIGGEST pumpkin !! It uses 3/4" x 11" strips of Pumpkin Pie and is gorgeous !! The strips were embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder. The color combo is Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The leaves are from the Day of Gratitude stamp set and the sentiment is from the retired Hand Penned Holidays set. Love all that 1/2" Old Olive Scallop Dots ribbon on the top !! Beautiful

Well, I hope you liked my little pumpkin patch today !! I think they turned out great and once my halloween stuff gets put away, they will have a home on the table in my Foyer !! Hope you can make a couple pumpkins for your house too !! Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
