Little Pumpkin

Today I'm sharing a quick little enclosure card I plan to include in Halloween packages for my niece and nephew.  The Retro Rubber Challenge this week is to "get your spook on" and I thought these would fit the bill nicely.  The images are from a Stampin' Up wheel that must be 20 to 25 years old (WOW, how is that even possible???).  I ran the wheel over a Versamark pad and then heat embossed it in white on a scraps of black card stock.  I used a little bleach to the pumpkin image and then colored it in with markers.  Quick and cute.





Happy Stamping,
Dana

  1. Hi Dana, What a fun card this is. I have never used a stamp wheel. You've done a great job with your old friend. Well Done. Barbxx
