Hey there! Today I want to share with you the banner I created for Grace & Troy's baby shower! The shower theme was "A Little Pumpkin Is On The Way". Grace asked me to create a banner saying "Little Pumpkin", and this is what I came up with (with a little inspiration help from Etsy) :
I'm sorry the above picture is so tiny. We forgot to bring a regular camera to the shower, so all of today's pictures are from a phone.
This pic is larger, (although I have no idea why) so you can see the detail better of the You're A Peach and Pattern Party Host Designer Paper I used and the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder I used on some of the pumpkin centers. I also used the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder and the Animal Print embossing folder.
To create the pumpkin background and the inner pumpkin, I found two complementing pumpkin shapes at (cough) Hobby Lobby to trace my shapes. I cut off the portions I didn't need, then used the stem of the larger pumpkin to trace onto Gold Foil Paper. After drawing my own twirling vine, I also traced it onto Gold Foil. I cut everything out with my Paper Snips with the exception of the Gold Foil letters, which were cut with a retired set of Stampin' Up! alphabet dies with Foam Adhesive Sheets adhered before cranking through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. The leaf is cut from Gold Foil using a Stitched Leaves die. All were then embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder. I attached everything together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To add the hanging string, I used Foam Adhesive Strips on the back of each pumpkin to create a channel for the Baker's Twine. This allows each pumpkin to be adjustable when hung.
I finished the back with another small pumpkin that matched the front. The Foam Adhesive Strips are double-sided adhesive just like a Stampin' Dimensional so they are perfect for this project!
