I am playing along with the PTI - MIM #262 - Pumpkin Stamps 3 Ways.
Ashley has a fun video, and asked us to use pumpkin stamps/dies
to create a card using one of three ways:  traditional, unique, or trendy.
I used the trendy version.

After looking through ALL of my PTI stamps and dies,
I discovered that I do not have a single pumpkin stamp or die.
Therefore, I decided to create my own pumpkins,
by using the largest die from the Tropics die set in a unique way.
(I hope that is OK with Ashley and Nichole.)

I used the single dots from the Good Times stamp set
to stamp my pumpkins with dots.
The dots were then clear-embossed.
The pumpkins are popped up with foam adhesive.

The Wet Paint Cuts sentiment is stacked three-high and also clear-embossed.

I am also playing along with the SSS-Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes.

Stamps:  (PTI)-Good Times
Dies:  (PTI)-Tropics, Wet Paint Cuts; (SSS)-Stitched Rectangles
Ink:  Versafine-Onyx Black, VersaMark, Old Paper Distress Ink, Copic Markers
Other:  Clear-Embossing Powder, Foam Adhesive

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.
