In my stamping world, the only thing better than a stamp image with a matching punch is a stamp image with a matching Big Shot framelit!! 🙂  How cute are these pumpkins!?  I used the new Sparkly Seasons stamp set and matching Seasonal Frame thinlits to die cut the pumpkin, stems and "spooky".   The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

Wondering about the cute polkadot background? I used a card from a past Paper Pumpkin kit – it was black and white – and I brayered it with Tangerine Tango ink! 🙂

If you've been waiting for the perfect adhesive for delicate items like the Spooky die cut… check out the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen on page 43 of the Holiday catalog… oh my… it is such a wonderful way to adhere your fine, small or delicate items to your crafting projects!



 The paper I have featured in my projects today can be found on pg 47 of the Holiday catalog.. it's called Happy Haunting!

For this fun "BOO" black glimmer paper card, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create a fun side fold card design.


The Black Glimmer paper might be easily missed on pg 47… so DON"T MISS IT! 🙂

How fun is this glimmery black witch hat and "BOO" die cut!?

I used the Boo to You framelits (pg 49) for these cute glimmery black die cuts.


The big pumpkin is stamped with the same supplies as my first card, and the little pumpkin is found in the Howl-o-ween Treat set (pg 49) and die cut with the Boo to You framelits.


Hope you had fun on our Sneak Peek Tour today!!
