Jen Carter Gold Pumpkin Leaves Welcome 71 wm

When I was at the Kansas Barn Sale this past weekend, I found a bunch of beautiful white pumpkins.  I brought quite a few home with me and decided that I'd dress a few up.  For this first one, I die cut the beautiful new Leaf Love Diesthat stitch all the way around the leaf shapes, from white glitter paper & gold striped tissue paper.

I attached the leaves into a bouquet of sorts with hot glue.  I die cut the smallest leaf from the set and stamped the coordinating Leafy Greetings Stamp on it.  I embossed that in gold.  I wrapped the stem with gold shimmer twine from the Twinery and also attached a little acorn from the newly remade Acorn Dies.

This is not a great picture, but I wanted to show you how I displayed it (I want to get some acorns to fill in the gaps still).  I have the other pumpkin that I'm going to show you next in there also on the other side.  I think that this would be fun for a Thanksgiving table place setting too!

Here is the second pumpkin. I first die cut all of the leaf shapes from the Leaf Love Dies from gold striped tissue paper (from Target).  I then brushed Mod Podge on the pumpkin, placed the leaves into place, let them dry for 20 minutes and then brushed a top coat of Mod Podge on top.  It really looks cool and was so simple!

I added some glitter to the stem too.

One last look...

I'm entering these pumpkins in the SSS Monday Challenge Autumn is in the Air.

Now for a little Christmas.  I love the new All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamps!  They coordinate with the new Oh My Ornament Dies.  Both products can be used with each other or by themselves!  The "Glory to the Newborn King" sentiment is included in the stamp set.  I stamped & embossed it on one of the six sizes of  Oh My Ornament Dies.

Probably my favorite stamp from this entire release is the large "joy" from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamps!  Isn't it beautiful?
