Pumpkin Time-Stamprints

For my October creation using Stamprints images I have chosen the pumpkin. This image is cute and works perfectly for Thanksgiving, Halloween or just autumn in general.

You can find this image at Stamprints Etsy. You can see more wonderful images and projects on the Stamprints Blog.

I started by printing the image and colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils. I tried to layer the colours to give the pumpkin some depth.

I decided to make this card a versatile card by just putting a cute “Happy” diecut. I think it could be used for Thanksgiving or Halloween.

I found some burlap style paper that I was excited to incorporate into my autumn-ish project! Here is the completed card.

Thanks for looking!

Dollar Store Crafts

Just a quick post today to show you what I made with the rest of the stuff I bought at the dollar store the other day. (Same shopping trip,as the black tinted glasses that I etched in previous post! 😉)

I while back I bought 3 rolls of burlap from the dollar store for $3 per roll. I have hung onto this all summer but I did see that these rolls are still available at my local dollar store. I hope this is something that they stock regularly because it is a great deal and I want to make more burlap crafts!

I make this autumn wreath for about $12 in supplies and it took a little less than 1 hour to complete! ALL of the supplies came from Dollar Tree except for the burlap that was Dollarama.

In the craft section I found the wire wreath base in square and round shapes. I bought both but only used the round one for this project. The patterned wire ribbon, mesh, pumpkin 3 pack, leaves in a pack of 2, scarecrows in a pack of 2, metal word 3 pack (saved 2 for future projects) and 2 pack of bows. Each package or item was $1.25!

I loved making this project! I am going to have to try this dollar store crafting again!
