Tutorial pumpkin

I am so glad to have so many talented demonstrators as friends.
When I came over to Michelles house Thursday, she had those nice pumpkins sitting on her table. A perfect decoration for Halloween , Thanksgiving ... and so easy to make.

I can't wait to share this wonderful idea .

Here is a step by step tutorial.

You will need :
- cardsstock only orange or pumpkin pie (SU)
- cardstock always artichoke ( SU)
- circle punch 1 3/4 " (SU)
- 5 petal flower (SU)
- thread or wool...
- scissors

- punch 11 circles out of you orange CS

- fold 10 circles in half and leave one for the center

- take your scissors and cut a slit about half way through your 10 folded circles

- take your 10 circles with the slit and slide it onto your center circle and spread them out evenly

- take your 5-petal punch and punch two petals out of your cardstock

- glue the two petals on top of each other and use thread or wool for the little stem.

Done! How easy is that!
Option : put a small peanut butter cup inside and you will have sweet surprise for your guests .

Indian summer in Michigan

I love fall. I love all the colors .
I went to the park last week and took some pictures.
This was the inspiration for the card I made with the set "Upsy daisy".
I used a Kaleidocolor stamp pad autumn leaves and brayered the ink on my stamp.
I like how it turned out. Simple and clean.
