I love Halloween, and I love pumpkins!!!
No Halloween without pumpkin. I love everything about them; the way they grow, the beautiful leaves, the curls and the enchanting flowers and then those delicious orange pumpkins, so beautiful!!
I’ve tried a few times to grow them in my garden, but I can’t get past the flowers. I think I’m doing something wrong. But also the flowers are beautiful so I buy the pumpkins in the shop or in the garden centre.
On this page no pictures of pumpkins because it’s not quite yet the season although I already saw beautiful plants in my area. Not in my yard this time.
Today again a little further with my Halloween calendar, day 3 of October.
The funny Dracula is from a set by Tim Holtz. Furthermore, only Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps and dies used.
The base is made with set 5 of the Sidekick planner, then I made a layer with die set 21 Note Pieces.
With a little stencil (own collection) I wrote the text Almost Halloween and stamped the text Hello Pumpkin. I will show you later how I did it.
I edited this text with black embossing powder.
The pumpkins stamps are from the ECD Halloween clear stamp set. I colored them with the watercolor palette set. Such beautiful colors! I made reinforcers out of the little pumpkins by giving them a hole with the Crop a dile, it looks like a big mouth 😉
I have to continue with my planner because October is getting pretty close!!
This is all I’ve used for this page.
I promised to show you how I stamped my sentiment. This is how I did it. Sometimes I don’t want to use the whole stamp but a part of it like here. This is a stamp from the Halloween collection “spooky sentiments”. The part I didn’t want to use I taped with washi tape. I then inked my stamp and just before stamping I removed the tape. You do have to work a little fast as otherwise your ink already dries up so make sure you have everything ready to go. I’ve stamped with Versafine, which last for quite a long time. Then I sprinkled embossing powder over it and heated it, then the stamp is even sharper and with a nice shine.
This is what I wanted to show you today. I hope I inspired you a little bit.
See you next time,
Have a great day 😉
