Autumn Harvest Jack-O-Lanterns
Here is another stamp camp project. I am so sorry it took me so long to post this, but I was sick and didn't get this card finished. (You know if I can't stamp, I am really, really sick) So finally here it is. The new dates for the Halloween Stamp Camp are, Sunday September 20, 2009 and Monday, September 21, 2009. As always, reservations are required.      
I saw someone use these pumpkins with the "Eat, drink and be Scary" hats, but I cannot find the post, to give proper credit. So thanks for the great idea, whoever you are!

All Supplies Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Autumn Harvest, Eat Drink and be Scary, Itty Bitty Backgrounds and the Textured jumbo wheel
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Almost Amethyst, Old Olive and SU watercolor paper.
Inks: StazOn Black, Craft black, Pumpkin Pie and Almost Amethyst
Accessories: Watercolor wonder Crayon Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon, stampin dimensionals, stampin sponges, clear embossing powder and black embossing powder

It is hard to tell in the scan, but the pumpkins are stamps in StazOn. The hat is stamped in Black craft (on Old Olive cardstock)  and embossed with clear embossing powder, the mouth and eyes are also stamped in Black craft, but they are embossed with black embossing powder, in an attempt to make them darker and spooker. Did it work? The pumpkin on the left and the center hat are popped with dimensionals, the hat on the left pumpkin is stamped with left over rubber (making it higher than the hat, and pumpkin with the dimensionals) adding a third dimension. The textured wheel is rolled in Amethyst on the Amethyst cardstock. I also stamped the speckled stamp from Itty Bitty Background in Pumpkin, just around the edges of the Pumpkin cardstock, over stamping to make it more condensed. Both the Amethyst and Pumpkin cardstocks are sponged. The Jack-0-lanterns are placed to the far left to leave room for the wide striped pumpkin ribbon.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think.
