Autumn Cut File 16 of 20: Pumpkin House

Wednesday, November 16, 2022

The 16th of the 20 Days of Autumn Cut Files is a Pumpkin House and was just emailed out and the file uploaded to the secret folder!

Here are 2 layouts made with today's Pumpkin House from the 20 Days of Autumn Cut Files:
Guest Designer Brianna Lepper created this super cute page! She says, "Today's Pumpkin House is so adorable and it was perfect to use with Paige's new Garden Shoppe collection. I really enjoyed backing it and adding all of the small details, even down to the adorable mushrooms and mail box! Adorable! To give it some extra sparkle, I added in some highlights using Stickles from my stash. I created a simple mixed media background with ink blending, popped up the cut file on foam tape, and adhered everything down. For my title I used a Foam Phrase Sticker and added onto it using the mini foam Thickers from Paige's Splendid collection. I love how colorful this layout turned out!"

Design Team Member Kelly Daye created this stunning layout! She says, "I hope you like whimsical things as much as I do! Because today is ‘The Sweetest Thing’! A little Pumpkin House, just big enough for a mouse (or mini me and a private craft room)! I cut it out of white cardstock then backed the pumpkin with Paper 7 from Garden Shoppe and the door and window with Paper 22. The leaves and stems were backed with the 6x8 Paper Pad. To back the stone foundation I used the multi-colored leaf Washi Tape. The patterns are smaller and perfect for small spaces in your cut file projects. I simply stuck it to some scrap white cardstock and cut it to fit. After the paper-backing was done, I backstitched it all with matching DMC floss, always using 6 strands. Next, I used a Metallic Cameo Pen in bronze to write an original poem on another sheet of white cardstock then added the scallop with a free cut file from my website. That was taped to my background, pretty Paper 8. Finally I chain stitched all around with a bright green thread. I’ve used this technique before and have a process video on my YouTube - start watching at 3:53 if you want to learn how. I decided the cut file needed to stand out a bit from the white background and added some faux bokeh. I stenciled a scrap of white cards with Distress Oxides then made circles with various punches and strategically glued them around the Pumpkin House. You can make your own stencil with Paige’s Stencil Cut File Set. I made good use of the 8-Page Sticker Book, all the tiny things were so perfect! I stuck the clear stickers, like the bike, chicken, and flower vase, to vellum and fussy cut them out so I could pop them up on my scene. The hanging planters are part of the Floral Die Cuts. I thought they looked so cute hanging from the tendrils of my house! The little door mat (and title of my layout) ‘The Sweetest Thing’ is part of the Foam Phrase Stickers. The oh-so-cute Enamel Button Stickers made fun flower centers!"
