The stitched pumpkin dies from Lawn Fawn were some of my favorite this year and I knew right away I wanted to start my fall crafting off with some adorable pumpkins.

I started first by making the white pumpkin card. Earlier in the week I seen a bunch of different colored pumpkins at the store and loved the idea of doing a card with more of a “non-traditional” pumpkin.

Steps for White Pumpkin Card

  1. Cut card base out of black cardstock – 5.5” by 11” and scored at the 4.25” mark.
  2. Cut background plaid paper – I actually found this at the target dollar spot! Paper was cut to match the card base at 4.25” x 5.5” and glued to card base using matte adhesive
  3. Next I cut the white pumpkin out using the Lawn Fawn Outside in Stitched Pumpkin die. I used Neenah solar white 110 lb cardstock. I also cut a few of the leaves out using this same paper
  4. Using the other accent pieces from the die set, I cut some coordinating leaves and vines out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock
  5. I then die cut the pumpkin framing using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin Frames. For this die cut I selected a medium tone gray, to better accent the white pumpkin feel
  6. Next I took each die cut piece and blended on a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Gathered Twigs to give the pieces a bit of a weathered look
  7. For the sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set – Thanks A Latte - onto some orange card stock and cut out using the Lawn Fawn Banners lawn cuts
  8. Finally I assembled all pieces by gluing with a matte adhesive – popping up both the pumpkin body and the sentiment with 3m ½” foam tape (alternative: Tombow Double-Sided 3D Foam Tape)

Steps for Jack O’ Lantern

  1. Cut card base out of black cardstock – 5.5” x 11” and scored at the 4/25” mark.
  2. Cut background plaid paper – Same paper pack from the target dollar spot! Paper was cut to match the card base at 4.25” x 5.5” and glued to card base using matte adhesive
  3. Next I cut both the base pumpkin and pumpkin framing out of Orange cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Outside in Stitched Pumpkin die and coordinating Stitched Pumpkin Frames die
  4. To give the pumpkin more depth, I took just the base pumpkin cutout and blended on some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Hickory Smoke
  5. I then cut the accent stem and vines out of Lawn Fawn patterned paper (I’m not sure which one! It was a scrap.)
  6. Next I pulled out some of my other Halloween themed Lawn Fawn die sets to cut some fun accents. First cutting the darling spider from the Build-a-House Halloween Add-on and then the Lawn Fawn Spooky Border Fence to sit along the bottom background. Both were cut from black card stock.
  7. Using the same black cardstock, I cut out the cheerful jack o’ lantern face using the die accents from the Lawn Fawn Outside in Stitched Pumpkin die set.
  8. Next I cut out the sentiment using the Simon Says Stamp BOO! Wafer dies.
  9. To finish off the card, I decided to stamp just one little ghost friend from the Lawn Fawn Spooktacular stamp set. I colored him using Copic markers in N0 and N2
  10. Once I had all of my pieces, I assembled everything by gluing with a matte adhesive and popping up both the pumpkin and “BOO!” sentiment with 3M ½” Foam Adhesive (Alternative: Tombow Double-Sided 3D Foam Tape).
