Lawn Fawn, The Great Stitched Pumpkin

Monday, October 28th, 2019

Happy Almost Halloween. Nancy F on the Scrap’n Stamp blog today with a fun little easel card inspired by the classic Peanuts book, “The Legend of the Great Pumpkin”. For this card, which should have been two but I had a little oops along the way, I am featuring the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin dies, as well the amazing Tim Holtz distress oxides from Ranger Ink.

I am going to share the close up of the cards here and link to my blog for the full description of the process.

My inspiration as I stated above was the classic Peanuts book, “The Legend of the Great Pumpkin”. I had it sitting in my room thanks to my little monkeys. I knew that the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin dies would be perfect to try and recreate the cover of the book and that I could continue with the distress challenge when creating the backgrounds. These inks are my go-to for everything the last few years, they are just so versatile.

I created the night’s skyline with more colours than I think I needed by the time I assembled everything, lol. I used mustard seed, carved pumpkin, seedless preserves, wilted violet chipped saphire and blueprint sketch.

I die cut numerous pumpkins and leave from the Lawn Fawns Stitched Pumpkin and Stitched Pumpkin frame dies, which also have the little face, leafs and stems included. I also die-cut grass from another Lawn Fawn set and created my own stencil for the moon using a circle die and acetate.

I decided to create an easel card to switch it up a little as I have been getting bored with the same old thing. I hope I can inspire you to try something a little different

Hope you have a wonderful week and a fantastic and safe Halloween.

What’s Moo?

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and I’ve got something fun to share with you today. I love making fun fold cards – especially when they’re as easy as this one! I love that it doesn’t look like it’s more than just a regular card when you first look at it but…

…when you pick it up you see that it opens up.

The measurements for this card can vary to whatever size panels you want to use. I used a standard size card base of 4 1/4 x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″ for a top folding card. I searched through my stash of designer paper and found two patterns that looked good together. The key for using two different patterns is if they have the same colors in them then they will most likely look good together.

I stamped 3 images from Tim Holtz Funny Farm stamp set onto white card stock, added color by inking up an image from Concord and 9th’s Background Blocks stamp set with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then cut them out with the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies. There’s no set size for this – pick a size that works for you. The next step is the important part. Layer your stamped piece onto another color of card stock leaving an equal amount of space around 3 of the edges – I left 1/8″ – but on the 4th side leave an extra 1/2″ – score and fold it at that mark. Here’s a picture of an image I chose not to use showing what I mean. You can see the 1/8″ border I left all the way around and on the left is the extra 1/2″ with the scored line.


All right now that all that is out of the way let’s put this thing together! I decided to make a quick video showing you – click HERE to watch it on YouTube.

I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to make something.

Happy Stampin’
