Teresa Collins Tell Your Story pumpkin tutorial

I am so excited to be able to participate in the Xyron Blog hop this week! I just LOVE my sticker maker, it is one of my favorite "GO TO" tools!

I made this great little pumpkin home decor piece for one of my shelves in my home office. I love to change things up with the seasons. I started with a 4x5 piece of canvas and painted it a Pearl White (I just love a little shine!) Then I added 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of Pennants paper (back) and outlined it with Black ink. 

I used the large oval frame from the Tell Your Story Stamp set to make the pumpkin, I stamped the frame onto the following papers: Damask (back), Frames (back) & Cards (back). Then I tore them all at the same time so my pieces would line up when I put them back together. I tried to tear them with a rounded shape to create a Pumpkin "feel". For the stem and the leaf I cut two of the shapes from the Pennant paper and trimmed the leaf until it had the shape I wanted. I then ran them through the sticker maker!

I really wanted to create more "texture" to the pumpkin so I added some crackle glaze and it created some bubbles and a little crackle in spots, just the look I was after! I used last months free download for the stamp maker and made the Autumn Splendor stamp for the bottom. I added the blue scalloped chipboard piece to the right and trimmed to size. Then I added the orange dots scallop borders to the top and left sides.
