It's Lady Couture Week with GlueArts & Die Cuts with A View!

Whew...hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!

We definitely ate a bit too many sweets yesterday! And are a wee bit tired from all the fun and festivities!!

We're continuing on this week with Die Cuts With a View!

DCWV sent us another of their new lines...this one..Lady Couture!

This Paper Stack is filled with vintage fashion designs and prints, Parisian images and much more!

Designer Audrey Pettit made these paper pumpkins that would be fantastic for a tabletop decoration for the holidays! Consider making these with photos as well for a unique gift for grandparents or friends too!


Harvest Pumpkins 
GlueArts: Audrey Pettit


Supplies:




DCWV Lady Couture Collection Pad


Clearsnap Ink

Kraft Outlet String
vintage buttons

florist wire



1. For each pumpkin, you will need 12 circles or ovals die cut or hand cut from patterned paper. I used 6" circles and 7" ovals for mine.

2. Fold or score each circle and oval in half. You can do this part by hand, but I used a scoring board for mine, which made this step quick and easy. Be sure to fold the "right" sides together.



3. Adhere the folded circles or ovals together, covering the back side of each shape with Glue Arts High Tac Adhesive. Continue adhering until all 12 shapes are attached.


4. To create the stems, I cut strips of cream patterned paper. Get the strips wet, then fold, twist, and shape the strips until they look like a stem. Allow to dry, then ink the stems with brown ink and attach using the Glue Arts Glue Gun.

5. Die cut or hand cut leaves from cream patterned paper and adhere to the pumpkin stem using the glue gun.

6. Tie string into a bow and adhere to the stem. Top with a button. For the final detail, wrap florists wire around a pencil to get a curly q figure, and attach to the pumpkin stems.




So how would you like like a chance to win the new Die Cuts With a View Lady Couture collection? 


Leave us a comment today! We'd love to hear about your fall and holiday traditions! We'll enter you to win this beautiful Paper Stack and our new PRO+ Perma Tac Cartridge and a PRO Handle! Plus we'll tuck in our 3D Combo Pac!!


Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more ideas and inspiration using GlueArts Adhesives!!

  1. We don't celebrate Fall here, so there is not much activity around. For me, I am sitting all day long browsing the blog land and admiring the holiday mood in other countries that celebrate this occasion.

  3. Those pumpkins are beautiful! Honestly, my husband and I didn't have too much in the way of traditions except putting a few pumpkins and mums at the front door. However, our son just turned four so we're in the process of developing those family traditions.

  5. Adorable and love DCWV papers! For the last few years, instead of making the huge mess for Thanksgiving, our very larger family goes to the local feast and several of us work there during it, serving, baking, delivering to home-bound, etc. and then we eat there together as a family; with each sub-family giving a donation. Following clean-up, we gather at either our house or my sister's and visit and play games and watch football.

  6. Like many others, our fall traditions center around turkey and pumpkin pie. I can almost smell them in my kitchen!
    Great project! I have just decided to make a bunch of them for my Thanksgiving centerpiece. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. Great project! Not sure it is really a tradition but my 4 year old son loves playing in the leaves so we always rake them and jump in the pile and then keep doing it again and again!

  10. Oh I love these, and I really appreciated the wonderful step by step photos! I guess we don't really have fall traditions, we do carve pumpkins, and decorate the house, inside and out, and I love putting up a new wreath for a new season.

  11. These are just lovely and I think I will have to make some! Our fall tradition is a trip to our favorite little farm to pick out pumpkins---I like the odd-colored and funny-shaped ones! When my DGD gets a little older, we'll do jack-o-lanterns!

  12. I like to make a flower arrangement with a paper decoration wrapped around the vase, usually with twine, too.

  17. Love this paper! Thanks for the chance to win it! My Thanksgiving tradition is to go to my sister's with lots of family and friends for a deep-fried turkey!

  18. My kids are now out of the house, so I focus my decorating on "harvest" .... Which makes it nice since I can put that up in Sept., add a few things for Halloween...and then put the few Halloween things away and add a few Thanksgiving items. Lasts until Almost December when I decorate for Christmas! Plus, it looks so pretty! That is why your pumpkin is so perfect! Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. We love the Fall in my family! I got married in the fall! We always go to the pumpkin patch, take hikes so we can enjoy all the fall colors, bake all kinds of pumpkin and squash dishes/desserts. We love to do a craft on Thanksgiving and I think these pumpkins would be perfect!!!!

  23. our family traditions for the holdays keep changing since all of us sisters are now married. Thanksgiving we all usually travel to my younger sister's house and spend the weekend there and then she and her husband (and baby bump) will come to visit at our folks for Christmas.We deorate my moms house to the nines. It is usually in the Christmas parade of homes.

  25. Every year a few of us get together and have a pumpkin carving party!! It is super fun to see all the designs and the kid's faces when they are done. I go to an orchard and corn maze with my besties. For the first time ever, I went trick-or-treating with my niece and nephew and hope to continue the tradition every year and when I have my own children.

  29. Oooh that paper is so pretty! Great pumpkins. Like the idea of adding pictures to make it a gift. : ) -- Our holiday traditions always involve family. We always get together, eat lots of food and enjoy each others company. The kids usually put on some sort of play directed by my 17 yr old niece who will most likely be famous for her films some day. : ) Thanks for a chance to win.

  36. Love the 3-D projects! Great for fall decorating, and could be transitioned to Christmas with a change of color palate. Our fall tradition includes raking up a big pile of leaves, saving out one or two perfect specimens.

  43. OH those pumpkins are wonderful! Fall is my favorite time of year. Love the colors, the fall leaves, halloween and thanksgiving. I think it's all about the feast! Candy, pumpkin pie, cider and everything so yummy! Unfortunately we are empty nesters now and most of the family has moved away. I still decorate and dress like a witch at halloween, but now I invite friends over to help celebrate and eat with us through the holidays. I also have a November birthday, so another day to celebrate, yay!!!

  48. We go to the pumpkin patch every year to pick out pumpkins and gourds to decorate the front porch with. These paper pumpkins are just the sweetest! And a really great tutorial, so I'm thinking I need to make some for our holiday dinner table. Thanks so much for the chance to win some of these DELICIOUS papers!

  52. We don't really have any Fall traditions and that bothers me. Right now, we keep pondering ways to teach our kids to be grateful. I think we found a way. The other day, we had trick-or-treaters come by and instead of trick or treating for candy, they were looking for a canned good to give to their local food pantry. I love this idea. I would like to do this for next year. I am hoping I can talk my kids into it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. We don't have a lot of fall traditions. We used to decorate for Halloween but since our kids are older and no grand children we've cut back on that. We always have a big Thanksgiving with the family. This year all my children will be home for the holiday! Lovely project. It would make a fabulous centerpiece.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love these! No real traditions, just normal holiday stuff :)

It would be great to win. :-) My traditions for the holidays always involve spending time with family, eating, and church activities. Enjoy every change of the seasons & the beauty of creation.

  61. Love these papers. Thanks for the chance to win. My family loves the holidays. We have started going out to dinner for Thanksgiving, it is great, no mess to clean up, but we miss all the leftovers. Then for Christmas, we have tamales, spanish rice and lots of sweets, lol....This year may be alittle different since we moved. We won't be with family this year, maybe we can picnic on the beach....we will see...
