Country Pumpkins

It’s time to get spooky with your creations at Pear Tree Designs.This week we’d love to see your HALLOWEEN cards/projects.Please click on the link to see how to play and gain some frighteningly fangtastic inspiration from the DT!

There’s a fabulous prize on offer from our sponsor :

Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More are giving the very generous prize of 5 digital stamps or digital paper sets to one lucky winner!!

Here’s another view of the Window Treat Box I made just to give more of an idea of the details on it and how the lid is held on:

When I saw this adorable image of Five Pumpkin Friends from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More I could see straight away how I wanted to use it.I found the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers for this cute Window Treat Box.The instructions are easy to follow and there is a video for support if you’re still not sure.The only difference is I cut my aperture to fit the image using my Fiskars paper trimmer.

I thought I’d go for a rustic feel rather than the traditional  Halloween colours as it seemed to suit the pumpkins so well.Although I’ve used the image in a Halloween theme I think you could use them for any Autumnal occaision.I found the sentiment from a selection at Birdscards.There’s a lot more too not just sentiments but images too – and they’re all free!
