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.
