How cool is this?!! I really had fun making this one. I started with a base card of Pumpkin Pie card stock cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". I added a layer of Basic Black card stock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" using runner adhesive. For my top layer, I cut a piece of glossy white card stock (or photo paper) to measure 4" x 5 1/4". I did the technique I showed a week or so ago with the sponges and ink. I stated by sponging Daffodil Delight ink in the center of the card stock going from the center out. Next I sponged Not Quite Navy ink from the outside in blending the edge with the daffodil ink where it meets. Finally I sponged Night of Navy ink from the outside in, not as far as the Not Quite Navy and blended it in with the Not Quite Navy ink. Again, it just gives your card a little different look and is quite colorful. Once this was all inked and dried (I let it dry over night) I attached it to the card with runner adhesive.
The greeting for this card is from the retired stamp set called Pumpkin Patch. I stamped it using Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out using the word window punch. I layered this on top of a modern label punch using runner adhesive. I added a black pearl to each end and attached it to the card with dimesionals. (I did this after the totem pole was attached.)
The top pumpkin was made using the small oval punch. I punched 3 ovals from pumpkin card stock and layered them using a liquid glue. I added orange glitter glue to the edged of the pumpkin to define the creases. The stem is a piece of Soft Suede that was run through the big shot using the woodgrain impression folder. I added Garden Green leaves punched from the bird builder punch and added it with the stem using liquid glue. I added googlie eyes and a small triangle nose for the fadce. I ended up drawing the mouth on with my black marker.
The middle pumpkin was made using the large oval punch. Basically all the pumpkins are made the same way. I did put black circles under the eyes of this one. I used the medium circles from the owl builder punch for this.
The largest pumpkin was made using the wide oval punch. The black circles for his eyes are the largest circles on the owl builder punch. Triangles were used once again for noses and the mouths are drawn on by hand. The pumpkins are attached together using liquid glue and are attached to the card with dimensionals.
To finish my card, I cut out letters for the inside using my big shot and retired billboard decorative strip. I attached these using liquid glue and added orange glitter glue dots to the letters.
Easy card with lots of color and a fun theme. You should give this one a try.
Well that's it for today. I will return tomorrow with another share for you. Come back and see me then. Thanks dropping by today.
