How to Make

  1. Draw a small pumpkin head design onto a piece of sticky foam. Cut out the head and all the features using a small pair of scissors.
  2. Fix the cut-out design onto a second piece of foam and cut around the outline. This makes the stamp thick enough and will prevent extra ink getting onto the background and spoiling your prints.
  3. Fix the pumpkin onto a double thickness of foam cut into a square and add a handle to the back - using a strip of foam - if required. Use a black ink pad or some paint to carefully cover the design and then stamp it out onto orange card several times.
  4. Cut the stamped images into single motifs. Glue each one onto a bigger piece of red card and cut around leaving a 3mm border. Glue the mounted pictures onto rectangles of black card and add a greeting using a gold metallic pen.
