DD #25


This week at Dynamic Duos they are having a fun challenge using Orange and Black just in time for Halloween.  The dessert option this week is die cuts!


I had die cut the Shape Up Series Pumpkin from Papertrey a when I first got the dies and  never got to finishing it off.  So the opportunity has come up with this challenge.  I die cut the pumpkin two times and I scored a 1/2" from the top of the back and adhered it to the front to form a card.  I find that the cardstock is too thick to use the die on folded paper.  I then cut the pumpkin slices using all of the colours in the Orange Zest paper pack.  I assembled the pumpkin, added a black stem and die cut a small branch also in black for the top.  I then stamped and die cut the sentiment.


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Orange Zest. True Black (PTI) Oatmeal (WPlus9)
Patterned Paper: Orange Zest Paper Pack
Stamps: Hocus Pocus (Waltzingmouse), Fillable Frames #10
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), True Black (PTI)
Dies: Shape Up Series Pumkin, Pumpkin Slices, Fillable Frames #10, Turning a New Leaf
