Stampin' Up! Magical Pumpkin Forest

More fun with the woodland embossing folder #139673
I made 50 adorable pumpkin name pins for our Stamp Fest/luncheon on Saturday.

So when I started working with the woodland folder, I copied a pumpkin card but with my own twist on the pumpkin.  You'll notice the pins have 2 extra ovals on them...the back 2 ovals are the wide oval punch while the rest of the ovals are all the large oval.  

Added a winter scene to my woodland fun.
I hope you've enjoyed these ideas. Please let me know if you helps keep me inspired to keep inspiring you!

Woodland Embossing Folder fun!

I offered to demo at my upline meeting a week ago and then panicked, thinking what I would show. Then I came across this fun and easy idea by Ann Craig at DistINKtive Stampers.  This is my take on her card/technique.  I love how artistic it feels as I'm swiping my ink pad across the embossing folder!  I just wanna say "Bam!" like Emeril.

It was a much simpler way to mask the trees than the video I did a few weeks ago so I thought I should let you know.   The card I did originally below... you can watch the video and see that sample Here,

Now, this one is done with Ann's technique...much easier but a little different, definitely more messy!

You'll have to click on her link above to see the progression but you can see the ideas are endless once you get started!
You can see, I had a little fun with it...look out for the crazy huge Christmas ornament hiding in the trees...grin!

 I hope you'll try it...if you do, send me a pic and I'll post it here for you.

Don't have this folder?  I can help...Just skip to my Store, click on shop now, and put in the #139673 in the search box or look at the Holiday catalog
