Pumpkin Ride and Some Cool Jewelry

Happy Friday!  Today I have a post for Stampendous that has a fun Halloween card and two pieces of jewelry made from bezels by HHH Enterprises, so, this post may be a little longer than most.  We're celebrating all the fun pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns from Stampendous this week and I'm sharing a card I created for the catalog using Pumpkin Ride.  I love this sassy little girl!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Stampendous® Pumpkin Ride
Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®
Doodlebug Design, Inc™ Haunted Manor™ Collection’s “Tombstone” and “Gallery of Ghouls” Patterned Papers
Copic® Markers (E50, E51, E53, E21, E93, E25, E27, E29, E35, E37, V12, V15, V17, YG00, YG01, YG03, YR14, YR16, YR18, YR23, YR24, YR27, Y15, Y17, C0, C1, C3, C6, C7)
May Arts Ribbon®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives®
Glue Dots®
Cardstock by Bazill Basics Paper®
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock

Here's what I did to create this card:
  1. Stamp image and color with markers
  2. Trim image to desired size
  3. Create standard A-2 card base with a tent fold
  4. Trim patterned papers as shown
  5. Adhere layers as shown
  6. Tie bow and attach as shown
 Next up I have a simple leaf bezel in an antique gold finish.  This was, by far, the easiest jewelry project I've ever done!  I sure do like the results!

Here's what I used to create this project:

HHH Enterprises® 28mm Pewter Leaf Bezel Pendant, Vintage Gold
Stampendous® Paprika Opaque Embossing Powder

Stampendous® Honey Opaque Embossing Powder
Stampendous® Olive Opaque Embossing Powder
Stampendous® Caramel Fragments
Stampendous® Ochre Fragments
Fast Finish™ by Beacon Adhesive®
VersaMarker™ Watermark Ink Pen
May Arts Ribbon®
Miscellaneous Twine

Here's what I did to create this project:

  1. I scribbled on the inside of the bezel with the VersaMarker
  2. Next I sprinkled on embossing powder in small sections
  3. Heat embossing powder until all has melted
  4. Sprinkle on some fragments
  5. Cover fragments with Fast Finish, set aside to dry
  6. Once dry, thread ribbons through and tie

Okay, I have one more project to share with you.  I hope you aren't falling asleep yet!  This one is really fun.  One of the coolest things about this project, I can switch out the contents whenever I want to!  I can change it for seasons, holidays or occasions, whatever suits my needs.  This is a round shadow box pendant-locket so I can open it up with the flip of a hinge!

Here's what I used to create this project:

Tim Holtz® Distress Ink® in Spiced Marmalade
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock
Acetate Sheet
Fiskars® 1.5" Circle Punch
May Arts Ribbon®

Here's what I did to create this project:

  1. Punch out white cardstock piece
  2. Stamp images onto circle
  3. Ink circle with distress ink and place inside pendant
  4. Add in a pinch of fragments
  5. Punch out another circle with acetate piece
  6. Stamp bird image onto acetate and place in front glass and close
  7. Thread ribbon onto pendant

I tried to give you a close-up side shot of the pendant to show the bird but it's hard to see how it seems to be floating inside.  It looks really cool in real life.

Well, that's it for me today.  Sorry for the length but I wanted to get it all in on one.  Hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend.  See you again soon!



  1. Your card is adorable but as for the jewelry pieces, well, they are BREATHTAKINGLY GORGEOUS! When I scrolled down and saw the leaf pendant I actually sucked in so much air that I choked on it!! GORGEOUS! The second piece is more whimsical yet still quite stunning on it's own! I really need to get my hands on some of the HHH Enterprises products!!! TFS!

  2. Love the rusted round pendant so much

  3. Your coloring on your card is great! Love the 1st necklace with the different colors and that shadowbox necklace is very cool. Thanks for sharing.
