You never can have too many pumpkins!

At this time of year.......Nope, you can never have too many pumpkins! :)

So I made some more!  Haha!

I had made my first 3D pumpkin last weekend and loved it!  I had given it to my hairdresser Joy and she displayed it at her station at the salon.  Well, the next day, she called me and said to "make more, make more" and bring them to her and she'd sell them for me!  She said she had like 5 or 6 people wanting one!  So, that's all I needed to hear!  ;)  So I made 8 more and delivered them today!  I thought they turned out so cute and festive!

I wanted to give out my "scrapping" business cards with them so I thought a cute way to do it was to stamp a pair of witches' feet on them; then I put a small dot of hot glue on the bottom so it could be removed easily!  This was a $1 stamp I picked up at AC Moore I believe. :)

These two had little spiders and webs on them....loved them!  Same as my first little pumpkin, I used papers from the coordinating papers from the Recollections Night and Fall paper pad as well as other scrap cardstocks for the leaves and vines.

I hand cut the leaves and doodled on them with markers for detail.

To make the little curly vines, I cut small strips of cardstock and dampened them with water.  Then I wrapped each one around a pen, then secured them with the clip on the pens to let them dry!  They are such a fun and festive touch to the pumpkins I think!  :)

I hope these have inspired you to make some 3D projects this fall, so have fun crafting!!
