The challenge at Late Night Stampers this week is a fall theme. I have seen all kinds of pumpkins made out of punches. The ones I had liked used the wide oval punch which I don't have. I saw a video made by Gwen Mangelson's husband (great video so check it out) where he used other punches besides the wide oval so I decided to give it a try.
The sketch challenge at Stamping 411 was my inspiration for making the pumpkins.
I thought it would be fun to have the pumpkin be the large oval shape.
I made 2 punched pumpkins. The first used the large oval. While it turned out okay, I wanted a fat pumpkin so I decided to try to make one using the 1 3/4" circle punch. I love how it turned out so I decided to use that one on the outside and the oval one on the inside. When it was done I thought it would be fun to use the Scribble Swirls sizzlet to create vines on the side of the pumpkin. I also used the Little Leaves sizzlet to make the leaf and stem at the top of both pumpkins. I cut the one leaf to be the stem and used Chocolate Chip marker to color it. I like the way this card turned out so I think I will use it in my workshop next month. Here is my creation.

I highly recommend you watch the video. You will learn some great tips to create all kinds of pumpkins. Thanks for looking and have a Marvelous Monday!
