Cuttlebug Camp Challenge #1

These pumpkins were great fun for autumn tablescapes! I did them in two different styles. One was by inking the Bubbles cuttlebug folder before I embossed the paper, which gave it the awesome two toned look. The second one alternated Swiss Dot panels with plain ones, so the patterend paper was more noticeable. I don't have a crimper, so I hand pleated the leaves, giving each a unique look. My pumpkins have a grosgrain ribbon stem through the center. I learned a great trick with the challenge ~ to use a brad to hold it closed at the bottom!
Well, I couldn't leave it with the Fall.....Christmas is coming, and what a pretty ornament the same style makes! I embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder, then used MS gold glitter to accent the swirls, and red Stickles to give the dots. Top it off with a gold and red bow, and Voila! Easy and fun!!

Love your pumpkins! And the ornament, did you use glitter glue on it?

Oh I forgot to mention, watch for another pumpkin with the cuttlebug.

Love your basket! What a great idea to color the embossing! Very pretty. I also love what you did with the pumpkins and how you turned them into Christmas ornaments! Another great idea!
