Paper-pieced pumpkins


The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is paper-piecing.  These pumpkins are perfect for doing just that!  I pieced my background with 2 dotty papers, then stamped the pumpkins on top to use as my base for piecing them.  Then I stamped each of them 6 or 7 times, cutting out individual slices to piece together over my base.  After I'd added the sentiment, they looked lonely, so I stamped and cut out some maple leaves to keep them company. 

Supplies: scraps of various printed papers, Hero Arts G5269 Tall Pumpkin, F5270 Traditional Pumpkin, CL119 Happy Thanksgiving (leaf), The Paper Company Autumn Stamp Kit (sentiment)
