Pumpkin with Large Oval Punch

Another punch art tip! Here is how to make a pumpkin using the Large Oval Punch (Item #107305, $15.95).

1.) Punch three ovals out of Pumpkin Pie card stock using the large oval punch.

2.) Sponge Pumpkin Pie ink on the three ovals, or you may swipe the cardstock directly on the ink pad as I did in my sample.

3.) Put two ovals side-by-side on your stamping surface so that the centers are touching. The inked side should be facing up.

4.) Put adhesive on the third oval. Place the third oval on top, with the inked side up, centering it between the bottom two ovals.

5.) Cut a stem freehand, using your scissors and a scrap of Garden Green cardstock. (I didn't do this on my sample, but it would also look nice if you sponged Garden Green ink on the stem.)

6.) Adhere the stem behind the ovals.

You're done! Try experimenting with different sizes and quantities of ovals!
