Pieced Pumpkin Waterfall Card

Hello Sunshine! Look at this cute pumpkin (jack-o-laterns) waterfall card Thia creatively designed using Spiced Sunshine Stamps, Peachy Keen Stamps, Lawn Fawn Papers, and The Robin's Nest Dew Drops.

Thia's idea for this card came from the current Peachy Keen Challenge going on until the 13th of this month. 

Don't forget to enter the Blue Moon Crafting Station Challenge going on until a week from this Wednesday! Challenge is Fall or Halloween! We here challenge you to enter there with some creative pumpkins!

Thia's pumpkins were created using a punch and the classic stitched oval stamp from the Hugs, Love, and Miises Faux Stitched Ovals Set. For the stem, she used the trunk of the Joy, Love, and Peace Tree. And for the leaf, she used a holly leaf from our Jolly Holly set. Pretty creative stamping!

The faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps. They are the company that manufactures Spiced Sunshine Stamps! We just LOVE them!
