Lil White Pumpkins

Happy Autumn Friends :)

It's finally here! My favourite time of the year :) I seem to be a little obsessed with pumpkins this year. I have always liked them but this year I LOVE them. I am especially drawn to those cute lil white ones. I just had to buy this wee guy last night he was only 69c at Trader Joe's.  I also saw some lovely artificial pumpkins at the craft store that were all different colours. I will talk about those in another post though.

So I made this tag this morning  my inspiration was from this wee pumpkin of course! I wanted to keep the tag quite neutral so I used only one ink colour to create the entire tag. I ran the top of the tag through a leaf embossing folder then lightly sponged over it with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I stamped my lil pumpkins at the bottom and paper pieced them with some cream coloured patterned paper. Next I stamped my leafy branch right above the pumpkins. Using the same ink I went around and  distressed the edges of the tag. Some ribbon and lace was tied around the middle. Finally I stamped a little sentiment and made into a tiny tag. Then attached it at the top through the kraft tag hole with ribbon and lace. I hope you like my lil white pumpkin tag :)
