CAS Jack-O-Lantern

Hello! I decided to play along with the Moxie Fab World Challenge to make pleats. The challenge ends tonight, so I am coming in just under the wire. I pulled out Fanciful Fall and decided to go with a CAS design.

To start, I stamped the wavy grass, from Fanciful Fall, using Memento Bamboo Leaves, several times across my kraft card base. I used sticky notes to get an even line at the bottom.

Then I placed Scor-tape along the bottom of the grass.

I adhered green grosgrain ribbon on the tape, folding it in pleats as I went. After I had done all my pleats, I stitched a line across the pleats, using my sewing machine.

I stamped the large pumpkin using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copics, starting with YR07.

Added YR04.

Added YR12.

Filled in with YR000.

Then I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face using Memento Tuxedo Black.

Used YG95 on the stem.

Added YG97.


I used YG03 and YG93 on the leaves. After coloring, I cut out the image.

I adhered the pumpkin with Pop Dots and added the sentiment, scoring on either side.

Thanks for popping in. I hope you have a fab day!
