Pumpkin Cat

It's Pumpkin Pie week for the Stampendous Design Team. No, we're not all making Pumpkin Pies, though that sounds like a great idea!  I like to use the recipe on the Libby's Pumpkin can, it turns out perfect every time. What recipe do you use for your Pumpkin Pie? It's one of my favorites. I even found a recipe on Pinterest for a crust-less one. It was good, but what's the point of pie without the crust!'s my creation for you today. This little black cat looks like he's trying to make Pumpkin Pie out of this Jack-o-lantern!

"Hop on Top!"
R232 Pumpkin Cat
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper
MEM01 Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®

Bazzill Basics cardstock Palo Verde
Bazzill Basics cardstock Yellow
Neenah Papers Classic Linen Cover Epic Black 80# 08126
Chameleon Color Tones - YL2, YO3, OR4, BR5, GR3, CG8, CB
May Arts Ribbon Black Jute
Double-sided tape


Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of green cardstock in half to form an A7 card

Step 2:  Stamp the Pumpkin Cat image on Mixed Media White Paper and color with Chameleon pens, trim right next to the design background

Step 3:  Tape the yellow paper to a black mat, the colored image to a black mat, then tape the image to the yellow layer

Step 4:  Wrap a piece of black jute around the image 3 times and tie a bow

Step 5:  Tape the image to the card front

This cute stamp makes for a very quick and easy Halloween card.
