OSAT Blog Hop – Oh My Pumpkins and Pie

Hi everyone! Welcome to the October One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop. Our theme this month is Oh My, Pumpkins and Pie!

OSAT Blog Hop

For some reason, not much was striking me for the ‘Pumpkins and Pie’ theme. I love fall. I love pumpkins. I just couldn’t come up with a great ‘pumpkiny’ idea. However, I had made up the paper lantern  in the picture below, and I decided that it should count. It does have 3 little pumpkins on one side, therefore it is totally pumpkin-themed. Next I just needed to make a matching card. I’ll admit, the card is slightly less pumpkin-themed.

Let’s look at the card first. I used vellum behind the window frames to fade out the haunted house scene in the background, which is just a piece of paper from the Halloween Night designer paper pack.

I’ve been wearing out my Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, and this card wouldn’t have been complete without a cookie cutter creature attached. I had a hard time choosing between the skeleton, vampire, and mummy, but clearly, I went with the mummy.

Now, on to the lantern. I’ve seen these made up for Christmas, but I thought it would be really fun to make a Halloween one. This was the project my stamp clubs made last month.

I used the Halloween Scenes edgelits dies for most of the silhouettes. The bats and spider shown below were stamped using the Spooky Fun stamp set, which comes together in a bundle with the edgelits dies for 10% off.

Now for the best part…

I used a battery operated tealight candle for the spooky glow. Would it be considered ‘stating the obvious’ to say that you probably shouldn’t light a candle to put inside it?

I think a few of these on a porch would be perfect for Trick-or-Treat night!

To make the lantern, you need:

  • 4 – Basic Gray Hearth and Home window die cuts
  • 1 – Basic Gray piece that measures 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
  • 4 – Basic Gray pieces that measure 1/2″ x 3 3/8″
  • 4 – Vellum pieces that measure 2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″

Begin by scoring the 3 3/4″ square 1/2″ from each side. Then, score the 1/2″ strips down the centers.

Trim the corners out of the square.

**Next, create your window scenes. Stamp on the vellum or attach die cuts as I did. Then place them behind the window frames before moving on to the next step.**

Attach window frames to the flaps on the square as shown below.

Next, fold two adjacent windows down, and attach them together at the corner using one of the 1/2″ strips. I would suggest using Tear & Tape adhesive on the 1/2″ strips. I used Fast Fuse, and as strong as it is, I wish I would have used something a tad stronger like Tear & Tape. Repeat until all four corners are secured.

If you make up any of these, I would love to see them!
