Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Candy Ford is today’s guest and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community. Candy used strips of Stampin’ Up! Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and the scalloped tag punch to decorate her pumpkin.  Perfect for a fall tablescape!

For more details including another decorated pumpkin to make your fall home decor sizzle, please visit Candy’s blog, Stamp Candy.

    What a fabulous idea and quite the project….it would totally make for a wonderful centerpiece for Thanksgiving or a different DSP for Halloween…love Candy’s creativity! Thank you for sharing this with us!

  2. This is absolutely amazing! And so very clever! Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us!

  3. What a marvelous idea for a family project, Maria. Thanks for sharing!

  4. What a fun project, I think I will do this with my grandkids, it will be fun to have this for our Thanksgiving dinner table decoration, specially if they help.
    Thank you Mary and Candy, for sharing.

  5. Thanks so much for hopping in with your helpful tips, Candy!

  6. For the last few days, my posts have been published the night before I intended! Brian suggested it may be a time zone issue. I’m still new to blogging, so I have a lot to learn yet. But it’s fun!

  7. Its in very small print at the very end of the post. I’ll see if there is a way to make it easier to find.

  8. Thanks, everyone! The big pumpkin probably took about an hour or less, including cutting the paper. Once you get started, it goes really fast. The Halloween washi tape one took much less time, maybe 15 minutes or so. I’m guesstimating because I didn’t think to time myself. I want to try stamping on the pumpkins next. Thanks so much for having me as your guest stamper, Mary!

    Love the pumpkin, Candy. Great job. I didn’t see where to comment on your blog, so I came back here. Your other one is great too, the one with the washi tape.

  10. Mary, Candy’s pumpkin is amazing. I love it. I wonder how long it took her to make this. What a great job Candy. Thank you Mary for letting Candy be your Guest stamper. What a great team you have. Very talented Candy. Hugs, Ellen Hinds

  11. I just love this pumpkin. I am suppose to be carving a gourd for another project but….

  12. I appreciate the update, Jennifer. There’s a chance it may double publish . . . eek. Gotta love technology.

  13. Yep! It did arrive in my mailbox. Thanks!

  14. Hi Jennifer . . . it was operator error (me). I set this to publish at 2:30 p.m. instead of a.m. (Pacific) and missed the scheduled delivery.

    Thanks for the heads up. It just delivered (or should have).

  15. How clever and fun!

  16. Mary,

    I did not receive this post in an e-mail “feed,” as I usually do.
