Give Thanks


Our weather has changed and it really feels like Autumn has arrived.  There are pumpkins and mums on almost every porch.  This card was made using the Heartfelt Creations "Pumpkins/Autumn Vines" stamp set.  I have used the pumpkin stamps on other cards but not the pretty autumn vines, so wanted to make another card using this set. 

I tried a new way of coloring today.  I have had a lot of Twinkling H20 paints for several years and never used them.  I decided it was time.  These paints are so easy to use and give off such a pretty shine.  All the pumpkins were cut out so I could make an "arrangement".  The pretty vines were stamped on a piece of ivory card stock and then embossed with the "Victoria" Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" Distress ink was sponged over the embossing.   I stamped the vines a second time so I could cut the leaves out to give them dimension.   All the pumpkins were attached with dimensionals then a strip of grass was added.  This was created with a Martha Stewart grass punch.  Two gold brads were added to this panel.  It was mounted onto a piece of brown card stock.  The verse is from the same set and was gold embossed onto the designer paper.  A bow was added to complete the card.

The products used for this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens

I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  Thanks for stopping by.
