The Great Pumpkin!

Here's a close up of the punch pumpkin and a bit of paper curly-cue I created with a sliver of Basic Black paper.
I created these sweet cards for this week's challenge over on Stamping 411.
I tend to make two cards when I make one, so these are slightly different, but the basic card is the same... it is a sketch challenge after all!
The base of both is Pumpkin Pie. Then I used a very old DSP. Then there is a layer of Basic Black and then another DSP layer.
Then I used the Gift Givers stamp set to stamp the sentiment on Whisper White and then punched it out. Then I used my blender pen and colored the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie. On this one, I sponged the edge of the punched piece.
I created a mini pumpkin by punching three 3/4" circles in pumpkin. I sponged the edges lightly in black. I used my slot punch (retired) to make a little stem, and then I wrapped a sliver of black paper around my paper piercer and stuck that on. Finally, I popped the pumpkin up, covering the scary looking pumpkin. (This one's for my niece who is too young to read my blog... NO ONE tell her!)
On this one, I used Pumpkin Pie to create a boarder around the main sentiment. On this one, both the pumpkin and the sentiment are popped up using stampin' dimensionals.
I thought of this right away when I saw this sketch (and knew I wanted to use my new Gift Givers set). I hope you like them as much as I do! Whatcha think, Prez? You need a few of these for your little people?
Thanks for looking!
