Terracotta Pot Pumpkin

What do you do with your terracotta pots when summer winds down......turn them into pumpkins, of course!  I random stamped a piece of 12x12 card stock and then cut it into 1/2" x 7" strips.  Using the terracotta pot as the inside of the pumpkin, I glued the strip to the inside of the pot and then to the base.  After all of the strips were glued, I "plumped" the pumpkin up a bit and filled it with pumpkin pods.  

Halloween Treats....for around the house, of course!

Here is my latest creation, a paper fan for Halloween. I took 3 3"x12" strips of paper and stamped them up with my acrylic stamps and then scored at every 1/2".  After some quick folding and a little hot glue, you have a beautiful fan base.  I then stamped a Halloween greeting and embossed it with black embossing powder.  A little more hot glue and you have a very sweet Halloween treat to hang on a door knob or from your banister!
