Halloween Card 10 - Open Pumpkin

Hello crafty friends,

I'm so enjoying making the cards for this Halloween series, so I hope you are enjoying them as well. Normally, I make 10 of the same Halloween card to send to family.  This is the first time I've made so many different cards for one occasion... and its been so my fun.

Today's card uses a very old stamp by Judi Kins I got years ago at a stamp resale fair.

I was going to create a Halloween scene inside the pumpkin, but I had just open my MFT order, which contained the Sending and Hugs die words and they called to me.  So I used them along w/the Halloween word die from a Little B Halloween word die set.  I die cut all three words from glitter cardstock.  Added some black enamel to the pumpkins eyes and nose and on all four corners of the card.  They aren't perfectly round (have to practice some more), but they are ok on a Halloween card. I added some leaves to the top of the pumpkin and because I felt something else was needed I carefully lifted the pumpkin and added three rows of thin washi tape.

I hope I have inspired you to get some your old stamps and dies out and make some cards of your own.  I'll be back on Wednesday w/a new project.  Bye!

To make this series more fun... i'm doing a GIVEAWAY?  At the end of the series, I will randomly pick one lucky person to win, so make sure you comment on EVERY post in order to be eligible.

I'm not sure what you will win yet... I'll have to look thru my stash for something good :)  


  1. Love the coloring on your card! I have this stamp too and haven't used it in years. It's a great stamp! I think I stamped candy in its mouth!

    1. thanks Denise. I wanted to make a shaker card w/this stamp, but ran out of time :)

  2. Love the big mouth for messages (similar to the ceramic ones you made all of us). So cute.
