From the Pumpkin Patch

I created this card with the pumkins from the JustRite Autumn Blessings set. It's such a versatile set!

The pumkins were stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo ink on Classic Crest Solar White paper, then colored with Copic markers: C3, E35, E37, Y38, YR04, O

I shaped the pumkins for dimension by rubbing a paper stump on the back of each one. One advantage of Copics is that some of the color seeps through to the back......that's how I could tell where to shape the paper. Anyone coming to the Fond Memories Workshop on Sept 26 will get to try this technique.

The greeting is stamped in black and clear embossed on Kraft paper, then cut with a scalloped oval Spellbinders die. I cut another dark brown oval to layer behind it. The pumpkins are mounted with foam tape.

All printed papers are from My Mind's Eye: Boo to You Spooky Stripes (front & back) and Candy Dots. I rubbed a little Distress Antique Linen around all the edges of the card.

A few buttons, orange twill tape and a little scallop border finish the card.

This was a FUN card to put together. Even the coloring with Copics is easy with just a few colors.
Have a great day!
