Pumpkin Lovers Unite! framed free Pumpkin Everything digital stamp and how to make an easel from craft dies


I colored up this free Dearie Dolls Pumpkin Everything digital stamp, thinking I would use it on a card to send to my niece, who (like her aunt) loves everything pumpkin. I added the sentiment.


But, when I'd finished coloring it, I thought it was so cute on its own I didn't want to put it on a card; instead, I put it in a flat paper frame from my stash. I didn't want to add too much in the embellishment department, lest it detract from the image, so I added some double rowed pearl tape (which unfortunately, does not show up very well in this photo).


Now, how to display it? I found an image on Pinterest where someone had used craft dies to create an easel (click HERE to see a better image). Unfortunately, the follow through link is dead, but you can see from the photo how it was done and easily do the same. I did have to adjust the die up and down a bit before I found the right spot to allow it to stay up.

Supply List
Paper – paper frame
Digital stamp – Dearie Dolls Pumpkin Everything
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils

I'm linking up with: Inky Chicks #77 – Anything Goes, Everybody Art Challenge #394 – Everything Goes, Create and Makes #7 – Anything Goes, Inspiration Destination #119 – Anything Goes, and Creative Moments #109 – Anything Goes w/twist Something New (new technique for me in making this easel from die cuts).

What a great idea on using the die for an easel! I am assuming it is folded in half and half glued down? Nice pencil work Shani - love the colors you chose to use. Every once in a while I would love the idea of putting a favorite one in a frame like that... ones I don't want to give away. Maybe make a frame that is easy to replace the card. But I digress...

From a fellow pumpkin lover (bread, ice cream, cheese cake, biscotti, and on and on and on), that image is adorable!!! Great idea to frame and display your work of art.
