On Saturday, I did a card makeover that included a masked pumpkin. You can see my card here.
Today, on my Technique Thursday, I'm sharing a how-to tutorial.
1. Punch a 2 3/8” circle from Pumpkin Pie card stock. (Punch a larger size circle for a bigger pumpkin.) Punch a second circle of the same size from scrap paper and cut two NARROW strips for the masked lines. (NOTE: The first time I did this I thought I had cut narrow enough strips, but the lines turned out too wide. Narrow means 1/4” or less, as seen in the photo.)
2. Apply Two-Way glue to the backs of the narrow strips, let dry to form removable adhesive, then place as desired on the Pumpkin Pie circle.
Ink desired stamp with desired ink. I used Day of Gratitude image with Pumpkin Pie ink. Stamp onto Pumpkin Pie circle. Lift stamp straight up when finished stamping.
3. Your “pumpkin” should have lines like the third photo. To finish the pumpkin “body”, cut the bottom of the circle off so it is slightly flat. Sponge pumpkin edges with Chocolate Chip ink.
4. Free cut pumpkin stem and leaf from Old Olive card stock and ink edges with Always Artichoke ink. I added some leaf veins with the Always Artichoke marker.
Your pumpkin is complete and ready to add to your project!

Have fun stampin' it up!
