Punch 5, 1 3/8 circles and 1 Small Oval for the round pumpkin. Punch 5 Large Ovals for the taller, oblong pumpkin. Using your finger dauber or old sponge, ink the edges of your punched shapes using your pumpkin pie ink pad.
Using a clear adhesive dot, adhere your 5 punched circles as shown above. 3 on the left and 2 on the right.
Place a pop dot as in the picture on the front of your pumpkin on the set on the right.
Now, just slide the right pair behind the set of 3 circles on the left and adhere. They should look like the above picture.
Now add your small oval shape onto the group in the front, adhere with a clear dot.
Cut a little stem approx 1/4” wide from the Textured Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhere with a drop of glue between the 2 sections of pumpkin pieces, in the middle.
Punch 3 leaves from your small leaf punch and ink the edges the same as the pumpkin shapes.
Instead of embossing a line down the center for detail, I decided to pierce a 5 holes down the center of each leaf. Your option. I like the detail either gives to the project.
Now turn your shape over, and a clear adhesive dot and place your leaves…
As you can see in the above photo, I nearly missed. *smile* But it worked fine.
Now with a paint brush and some baby powder or corn starch, brush on the adhesive dot to de-activate the sticky.
Your pumpkin should look like this now, in the photo above.
Using your quilling strip or thin brown paper (not cardstock) and scissors run the strip across one of the blades like your curling ribbon for packages. You’ll end up doing this 5, 6, 7 times… you want it to be a tight curl.
like above. Now take both edges and pull til its longer. You might even have to help turn it… like your wrapping a mint in cellophane, to get it tighter.
Cut off a piece and adhere to the back or middle of your pumpkins. You can twist and flatten the spot of your curlique that your going to adhere to the back of your pumpkin. Isn’t it gorgeous!!! Now for the taller oblong pumpkin.
Group as shown above, adhering the same way as the previous pumpkin.
Add your leaves… Now place a pop dot on the smaller, round pumpkin in the spot as shown above and adhere to the front of the other pumpkin. Add another curlique to the left as described above and here’s your gorgeous 3-D Pumpkin.
I’m adding this one to the inside of one of my Thanksgiving/Fall themed cards. It would be a fabulous focal point on the front too. Or you could make it into a place holder for your Thanksgiving Table, like I did below…
I added a small card to the back, so it would stand on the table. I then used the Curly Label punch and punched a piece of Soft Suede Textured Cardstock and wrote Paige’s name and adhered with clear dots. Here’s the back side…I hope you enjoyed my Pumpkin Punch Art tutorial today. I love punch art. It can add so much to your paper crafting project.
