DOstamping "Straw" Tip:

  • Cut an 8" length of natural ribbon (from the Copper & Natural Ribbon Combo Pack)
  • Then cute one side edge off and pull strands away.
  • When you have enough strands - pile them together and tie in a knot in the middle (it doesn't have to be perfect)
  • I them tied it in a messy bow and adhere to the back of the partial punch with glue dots.
  • Substitute Linen Thread for the natural ribbon.


You might be wondering, how I got a smaller punched pumpkin?  Easy, with Partial Punching!

DOstamping Tip - Partial Punching with Pickof the Patch Builder Punch shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup 2

DOstamping Partial Punching Tips:

  • Cut Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Pick of the Patch Builder punch
  • Then re-insert the pumpkin punchout back into the punch.  I slid it into through the side, then pulled up the left edge so I could position the right edge into the punch where I wanted it.
  • It works for both sizes.
  • Note: for my card, I used a full-sized smaller pumpkin and a partial punched smaller pumpkin.

NOTE:  I make a boo boo!

  • It looks like two smaller pumpkins are layered together. 
  • That's because I got a ink spot on the first one, but it was already adhered to the card. 
  • So I just punched another one.  The shape was slightly different (that's what you get with partial punching - not exactly the same every time), but that's OK. 
  • Just a way to cover up my mistake!

What do you think of today's card?  Fun, right?!


If you're a Halloween fan, then you'll want to add the Pick of the Patch Bundle (with punch) to your stamping collection, along with the Them Bones Designer Series Paper!
