Papertrey Blog Hop - Pumpkin Shaped card

 Well, it's another month of blog hoppy goodness over at Papertrey Ink!  Here is the inspiration picture:
And my final card is a shaped pumpkin card ... even though the circle might seem more like an orange! :) I used my MS circle cutter and then added a hand cut chocolate brown stem.  A few Delightful Dahlia leaf die cuts (one popped up on foam dots, the other glued on) and stamped in Chicken Feed Jenni Bowlin ink.  

I used Faux Ribbon's dotted line stamp that I curved and stamped in Colorbox Frost White ink to make my orange-like shape more like a pumpkin.  A die cut in chocolate brown of 'happy' from PTI's Wonderful Words in chocolate and some stickers from Basic Grey's Basic Whites alpha stickers and that was it!  I used a tip for perfect placement of sticker letters by sticking them half onto the plastic packaging.  Then, when they are all lined up, press them down onto the cardstock and then carefully peel away the plastic from the bottom.  Voilà!  I added some Glossy Accents to make the white alpha stickers a little more dimensional and shiny. 

Paper: Gina K dark chocolate, sweet mango, green grass
Stamps: PTI's Faux Ribbon
Ink: Colorbox Frost White, Jenni Bowlin chicken feed
Misc: Wonderful Words 'happy' die,  Tombo Mono Multi glue, Glossy Accents, Basic Grey Basics white alphabet stickers, foam dots
