1. Using the Pick of the Patch stamp set, stamp on Basic White c/s 3 large pumpkins with Pumpkin Pie ink, 3 leaves with Garden Green ink, 3 stems with Pecan Pie ink. Instead of stamping and punching the stems, you could punch the three stems from Pecan Pie cardstock.
2. Using the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set, stamp the wider bordered hexagon shape with Pecan Pie ink on Basic White c/s.
3. Stamp “a harvest of BLESSINGS” from the Pick of the Patch stamp set on a narrow piece of Basic White c/s with Pecan Pie ink. Trim both ends at an angle.
4. Using the Simply scored scoring tool, score the 7-1/2” X 7-1/2” piece of Pecan Pie c/s at 2-1/2” and 5.” Rotate 180 degrees and score again at 2-1/2” and 5”
5. Score the 3-5/8” X 3-5/8” piece at ½” on all four sides.
6. Fold the two pieces on all score lines, and burnish with a bone folder.
7. On the 7-1/2” X 7-1/2” scored piece, cut the corner squares on the scored lines up to the horizontal scored line on that side, Rotate 180 degrees and repeat the cutting on the other side.
8. Cut off half of the four corner pieces.
9. Add Tear & Tape to the four corner pieces and fold to the inside of the adjacent whole square.
10. Adhere a piece of the copper print DSP to each of the four squares that will be the sides of the box.
11. Add a piece of the copper print to the center square of the box lid.
12. Cut the corners of the 3-5/8” X 3-5/8” lid piece the same way as the larger box EXCEPT-do not cut the corner squares in half.
13. Add a small piece of Tear & Tape to each of the four corners, Remove the backing and adhere the corner pieces to the longer side pieces.
14. After stamping and punching the Heartfelt Hexagon shape, add an assembled pumpkin as shown in the photos and adhere to one side of the box.
15. Adhere the remaining 2 pumpkins to the lid as shown in the photos.
Fill the bag with candy and/or other small items and present to your guest.
TIP: Add sequins or other embellishments if you like.
Enjoy and Share!
In addition to the cards that Barb created with the BY THE BAY SUITE COLLECTION (page 22, Mini Catalog) she created this framed piece as a gift to me. To say that I am thrilled is to minimize my response. I love it!!!! It is hanging in the Cat/Art Studio with another, similar use of the DSP, that I created.

The paper I used yesterday for my 'silly goose' card is a part of the SALEABRATION FREE products (Day At The Farm DSP, #160835). I saw this project on the Demonstrator Planning Place FB page and had to share. The demonstrator that created this fabulous counting book is Catherine Proctor and you can find more information here. I love this idea! What do you think?
I received lovely Christmas cards last week from the members of one of my stamp clubs. I am so proud of all of them ~ wonderful cards ~ wonderful techniques! I was so excited that I decided to share them with my family when I was wrapping their gifts this weekend! (I hope y'all don't mind!) THANK YOU SO MUCH!
A jar, some water to float the votive, berries from your garden and a little decoration tied around the top ~ easy peasy and so Christmasy! I wanted to share this decoration from a dinner get together earlier this week.
