You will need the following:
- The Create a Pumpkin with Faces and Handprints Halloween Rubber Stamp set
- Coloring medium of your choice; I used colored pencils and Gamsol
- Black ink
- A paper straw
- Washi tape
- Hot glue gun
Let's begin. Stamp the pumpkin stamp onto white cardstock and color it in with orange colored pencils. Totally optional but I chose to use a bit of Gamsol to blend my coloring a bit.
Fussy cut your pumpkin and transform it using one of the fun Jack-o'-lantern faces, black pigment ink, and clear embossing powder. Much less messy than actual pumpkin carving!
Trace your jack-o'-lantern onto black cardstock and cut out.
Wrap your tulle loosely between your thumb and forefinger. Cinch tightly in the center. Cut the looped ends.
Glue the center of your tulle to the back of your jack-o'-lantern with hot glue.
Wrap a paper straw in washi tape of your choice and adhere ribbons to the top using hot glue.
Here is a close up photo showing how I glued the ribbons to the straw.
Attach your jack-o'-lantern with hot glue to the top of your paper straw and glue the black cardstock behind it so that the straw is sandwiched in the middle.
That's it! Pretty easy. Head on over to the shop to check out this fun stamp set and don't forget to stop by the Facebook fan group to share your art. You could win a prize!
