Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Round Pumpkin

Oh, I have a fun - cute - little card to share with you today! Our youngest two babes are still in elementary school and each year you can sign up for a secret pal - a teacher, aide, helper, etc. and gift them with little things throughout the year.

This year I have a teacher I've never met - she teaches Kindergarten and I've gotten her two things from her wish list and I'm going to include this little card.

I stamped the pumpkin; then covered it with a post-it note to stamp the image again on either side; I then paper pieced each one and mounted the middle one with dimensionals.

The polka dot paper is actually a bright white, but my base card is ivory so I used Antique Linen distress ink to change the bright white to a nice...well...Antique Linen color. LOL

I used the MS Lattice Arch Punch on the outside and inside strip of paper - one of my all-time favorite punches! I added a few shadows to the pumpkins and mounted on a scalloped nestability.

I added two strips of Scor-Pal tape and added some MS glitter to each strip - love the extra sparkle!
