Hello Pumpkin

Thursday, September 29, 2016

Hello and happy Thursday everyone. Before I start with the fun stuff, I wanted to let you know that this will be my last post as a design team member for MarkerPOP. Having a young family, things are becoming very busy for me, and my creativity has been hard to come by lately! I am really disappointed that I've had to come to this difficult decision to step down from the team, but I just know it's the right thing I need to do! I hope you've enjoyed the projects I've created during my time on the team. I loved this team and using all the fun products!!

Ok on to the crafty stuff! Today's card features stamps & dies from My Favorite Things, and a Tim Holtz stencil. First, I started by die cutting an orange piece of card stock from the MFT Blueprints 29 die set. Then, using MFT's Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX, I die cut the dark grey card stock. To give the background behind the pumpkins a little more interest and texture, I ink blended some Black Soot Distress Ink over Tim Holtz's Mini Layered Stencil #22 (the leaves stencil). It's pretty subtle, but I LOVE the effect ;)

For the black and orange pumpkins, first I repeatedly stamped the star stamp from the Spooky Sweets set with VersaMark ink on black and orange card stock. It was then embossed with WOW! Gold Rich embossing powder--a NEW brand/product in the store! Make sure to check them out...there are a TON of colors to choose from! Then I ran them through my die cut machine using the smallest pumpkin in the Spooky Sweets die set.

The white pumpkin was also stamped with VersaMark ink onto Neenah white card stock, then heat embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. The stem was embossed with the Gold Rich EP, then die cut. The sentiment is stamped on Neenah white card stock using the same gold EP, and then die cut using a banner die from MFT Blueprints 29. The white pumpkin and sentiment are popped up using some foam tape for dimension.

I hope you've enjoyed my fall/Halloween card today! I appreciate you stopping by. Have a great day.
