Hope your are having a great week so far.
Today is the 1st Tuesday of September and
over at Craft-Dee BowZ that means its Inspiration Tuesday.
Usually I post an inspiration piece on the 1st Tuesday
and the other designers post on a Tuesday throughout the month as well.
OK, let me share with you my Tuesday inspiration piece.
This card design came about because of an art piece I saw at a home goods store.
It really appealed to me. (Obviously - LOL)
See that background paper??? That gray and white patterned paper.
Well I had some paper that was this design but it was pink not gray.
Well I put that DP in my copier and copied it as a B &W
and the B&W selection on the copier gave me exactly what I was wanting.
I trimmed it and used it as a layered piece over a dark gray cardstock.
My pumpkin is an old die from Accucut and it's still available.
It comes with eyes a nose and a mouth and a leaf.
I will use the other pieces some other time.
I cut the pumpkin out and then cut another center piece.
I used my paper shaper to shape the end parts of the pumpkin
and that extra center piece.
I added foam tape to the extra center piece and
attached it over that center area on the main pumpkin shape.
It gives the pumpkin dimension. I also inked the edges using gray ink.
I added a bow and this is the end result.
OK after I made that card, I thought that pumpkin would be cute on a handle bag.
Perfect to use that bag for Halloween Trick or Treating.
I decided to make a bag topper
Here is what this finished up as.
This looks so cute.
Same pumpkin - same background paper and I just mounted it on a extra large label shape
and added some pretty leaf ribbon .
I added a slit to that label shape and slid it down on the front bag handle.
You can see the slit and the fold spot right above the stem
