Pumpkin Pie with Stampendous!

Hello again! Do you like pumpkin pie? I sure do! It's one of my favorite pies, actually. I am really excited that it's pumpkin season here in NY.  The rest of the Stampendous Design Team is pretty excited too. That's why our theme this week is "Pumpkin Pie." We will be featuring all sorts of pumpkins (and there are a lot!) in our projects this week. Today, I am sharing a cute necklace I made.

This is a great necklace for a child. Although, let's be real...I'd wear it too! I used the Cling Create Fall stamp set and the coordinating Die set to create my pumpkin. I stamped him with Staz-On on to a piece of white shrink plastic. I had experimented with clear first, but after I had made my glittery background, he was too tough to see, so I redid him with the white.

I colored the pumpkin (before shrinking) with Sharpies. I punched a hole in the top, and shrunk him down with my heat gun. For the glittery goodness in the background, I applied some glue to a piece of wood, and sprinkled Lime Micro Glitter from the Fall Micro Glitter Mix set. I love this green because it's holographic, and not just a flat green. I attached the shrunken pumpkin head (lol) to a chain, along with a couple of charms and my glittered wood. The I just strung it on to a cord with some pony beads. It was a quick piece to make, and I know my kids really want one of their own. Below are the rest of the gals posting along with me today. Before to check in at the Stampendous Blog each day to see who's posting thoughout the week, and be sure to catch our Spellbinders Quarterly Hop at the end of the week. Oh! And of course do NOT for get to check in starting October 1st for the Smeared Ink's 7th Annual 31 Days of Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!! It's officially my favorite time of year!!! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is adorable! I would totally wear it myself.
LOVE this necklace and I think my granddaughter and niece would too!! I might just have to make them each one! I think my niece would love to get one in the mail since she just moved away to NY from VT. I know I love happy mail and think she will too! TFS!
