Every Halloween season, I always see lots of pumpkins with witch hats. So, I decided to make a card like that!
The background was made in my video Watercolor Techniques #1 seen here (it starts around 13:58):
For the pumpkins, I stamped with Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie paper. Die cut. The eyes are made with the negative pieces from the fence die in the Barn Dies- as is one of the noses. The star is from the Witch Hat builder punch. The smiles are from the Scalloped Contours dies.
Their hats are from the Bewitching Bundles. Stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia.
On the ribbon, I colored the white part with a Highland Heather Blend.
For the bottom, the swirly dies are from the Rustic Pumpkin dies. I used the white glitter paper.
For the sign, I stamped the sentiment (from the Scary Cute stamp set) with Gorgeous Grape. I die cut with the banner die in the Scary Silhouettes dies. I then embossing with the Timber embossing folder. I cut a thin strip for the bottom and embossed that, too.
This month, Stampin’ Up is having World Watercolor month! I absolutely love watercoloring. There are tons of ways to do it, so I’m going to show you 7 different ways. The video and this post has 3 ways with 3 cards. The next one will have the other 4 ways with 3 cards.- I’ll post that in a few days.
Here’s the video for today:

An easy card! I watercolored the daises in about two minutes. The grass is from the Palms dies. The background paper you can only get with hostess rewards! There is a TON of paper!!
