A lot of our posts this Halloween season have been whimsical or party-themed. But we also love having some more traditional/fancy autumn decor in our homes as well so this week our pumpkin projects will be geared toward that style. First up, embossed pumpkins!
Lately I have been somewhat obsessed with embossing and exploring all the fun uses for it. I am sure a lot of you have been embossing for years and I am just late to the game. I think I always associated it with scrapbooking which I was never very skilled at. However, I am learning it can be used for so much more! So after finally buying some embossing supplies last month I decided to try it on pumpkins. And I am happy to announce that it totally works and the result is super pretty!
- Pumpkins (I used real ones but plastic is probably better) //
- Embossing ink or pens (I used this ink and these pens) //
- Stamps //
- Embossing power (I used this one) //
- A heat tool //
- Optional: embossing magic
You can totally see the shine on the pumpkins – it even looks a little bit like gold foil which I have been crushing on lately. It is not perfect (this one is stamped) but it is gorgeous just the same.
