Snow Day Pumpkins

Here is a surprise use of the Snow Day stamp set.  By turning the snowman stamp sideways you can make a triplet of pumpkins!
The facial features are also made with Snow Day images.  I individually inked up the eyes and stamped them then just the mouth so I could get different placements and expressions.  For the middle pumpkin, I used the snowman's button stamp for her mouth and then drew a line with a marker to connect them.  I also drew eyebrows, eyelashes and added googlie eyes.

The hat and sentiment are from the Best of Halloween stamp set.  (I totally agree these are the BEST Halloween stamps-- I have loved using them!)  A bit of Witches Brew Washi Tape and threaded buttons complete the card.

Measurements for the cardstock layers are:
Card Base:  5-1/2" x 11", scored at 4-1/4"
Plaid layer:  4" x 5-1/4"
Tangerine Tango:  3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Very Vanilla: 3-1/2" x 4-1/4"

Leah has been baking and cooking some wonderful fall goodies.  She made some fabulous pumpkin caramels.  We were photographing them for a cookbook we are planning and I thought it would be cute to have it appear as though the pumpkins on the card were eyeing the pumpkin candy.
These caramels really are amazing!  They are made with pumpkin puree and poured over toasted pumpkin seeds.  They took a long time to make but they were totally worth it!!
