Hello there! I've held a Paper Pumpkin Night for the past 2 months and we've had a lot of fun getting together. I thought I'd try to add a few more Pumpkin Pals to our fun night out. I decided to put the Promoting Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set to work again and made some invitations to send out. I started with a Whisper White base and inked up only the swirl portion of the stamp using Soft Sky ink. I then inked up the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge with Calypso Coral and stamped it off a couple of times before stamping the card. Next, I added some retired washi tape on top.

I stamped the bold pumpkin image in Soft Sky ink onto Soft Sky Cardstock. I then 2-Step Stamped the line image over the top using Pool Party ink. I used Calypso Coral ink for the sentiment, and cut the pumpkin out using my Paper Snips. On the back I added some Liquid Tombow and adhered some Silver Metallic Thread that I had wrapped around my hand several times to create a messy swirl. I adhered it to the card base with Dimensionals.  I then used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to punch out the heart from Calypso Coral Cardstock and added an Itty Bitty Acents Epoxy Sticker on top. I adhered the heart with Liquid Tombow and used it to add the Whisper White Baker's Twine bow as well. I finished the card off with a few metallic Sequins, which I just realized I forgot to add to the cards I sent out...ggrrr!

I thought it was fitting to have pumpkin treats at my Paper Pumpkin Nights, so I've been scouring Pinterest for some yummy treats and boy did it deliver! We had these in August...
