Freshly Made with Reverse Confetti

This is my second post today.  In my first post, I used a Reverse Confetti Spooky Sentiment and a whole lot of patterned paper.  Since that was a bit out of my comfort zone, I decided to use a different Spooky Sentiment and go a little bit more my style!!

Pumpkin Faces

I am a very literal person - so when the sentiment mentioned pumpkin faces and ghosts - the card had to have both of them.  As it turns out, I don't have a jack-o-lantern die.  So I used the pumpkin from Reverse Confetti's Forever Fall and found an older EK Success punch in my stash that was just the face!

The sequins are my favorite go-to Halloween bling this year.  They are Iridescent Chocolate sequins from Ellen Hutson.  They flash purples and greens and blues - so even though I don't have any chocolate on my card - they still give the perfect Halloween feeling.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.


  • Stamps: Reverse Confetti Spooky Sentiments and Forever Fall (the pumpkin), Clearly Besotted Fright Night (the ghost)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Basic Black, Pumpkin, Glitz Raven 6x6
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
  • Accessories: Hemptique 10 lb black twine, Iridescent Chocolate sequins from Ellen Hutson, Clearly Besotted Fright Night dies

You are so clever with the punched face on your pumpkin! It looks like it was made for the stamp. The triangle border at the bottom is so cool, too.
