Fall is my favorite season, but living in Florida makes it difficult to enjoy, so I have to create my own Fall with Faux Quilted Pumpkins!
I recently had a bunch of random wooden pieces sitting on my work table and I thought that these blocks were the same size as Ann Butler Designs Background Basics stamps – and I was right – so I created these Faux Quilted Pumpkins!
I LOVE it when a design comes together.
Here’s how to make it:
1.) Base coat larger block with Americana Paint by DecoArt Orange Twist and smaller block Tangelo Orange, let dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
2.) Load Colorbox® Background Basics Stamps by Ann Butler – Diamond and Picnic with Ann Butler Crafter’s® Ink by Clearsnap – Tangelo and stamp on four sides and top of each block. Use a heat tool to set ink, which will make stamping quicker.
Place a medium side craft cork on the end of the piercing tool and roll on Ann Butler Crafter’s® Ink by Clearsnap – Bark ink pad to create the pumpkin stem. Repeat with small craft cork. Attach to top of Pumpkins with Beacon Premium Tacky Glue.
Load Colorbox® Background Basics Stamps by Ann Butler – Basket with Ann Butler Crafter’s® Ink by Clearsnap – Evergreen and stamp on lime green cardstock, let dry. Cut out two leaf patterns. Fold in half and attach to Top of Pumpkin with Beacon Premium Tacky Glue. Tie a bow around each Pumpkin stem with twine.
Quick and easy to make, these Faux Quilted Pumpkins were created in just 15 minutes, so make a whole PUMPKIN PATCH to display in your own home or give as gifts! These would also make a great place card for Thanksgiving dinner.
