Thinking of Pumpkins

Well, this week certainly is flying by! It seems that the closer we get to the first day of school, the faster time goes. I need it to slow down...I still have SOOOOO much to do! One of the things on my To-Do List is prepping for my Stampin' Bingo Holiday Catalogue Launch. It's happening one week from tonight and will be so much fun! Today I have one of the make-n-takes we'll be doing that evening to show you...


This one showcases the fabulous Painted Autumn DSP and I absolutely love it! The card base on this one is a 4-1/4" square, but the focal image extends from the upper edge, making it 5-1/2" tall. I love this creative layout CASE'd from Janet Wakeland. I used three different patterns from the DSP pack. The pumpkins are actually fussy-cut from one of the sheets...love it!

The only stamping is the sentiment, which is from the Count My Blessings stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I love stamping directly onto DSP, as it adds instant texture and colour to the stamped image. I die-cut the sentiment using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it on a scalloped oval cut from Crumb Cake card stock using the Layering Ovals framelits. Behind the ovals I added a little hint of a metallic foil snowflake, but turned it over so the vanilla coloured back side was showing. I added a little swirly die-cut, which I think looks like pumpkin vines, as an accent. It was cut from copper foil using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits. The curly twine I used is actually some of the new Jute Twine which I separated into three thinner strands. I love the added texture it gives.


I didn't take a photo of the inside because I kept it very plain, just adding a Very Vanilla panel on which to write and another fussy-cut pumpkin. Sometimes simpler is good ;)
