Happy Tuesday, peeps! It's raining AGAIN here in PA...I feel like a little mushroom, never seeing the sun! Hopefully October will bring some bright blue weather! Anyway, it's time for another RetroRubber Challenge, and I chose to make a not-too-spooky fall creation:
And before I get to the details, here is our sketch:
My pumpkin is from a Close to My Heart set called Autumn Wishes, and it is from 2016; I stamped it three times in various shades of orange: Grapefruit Grove, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze, then fussy-cut each outer panel and adhered them to the original one:
I got some new Halloween papers from Authentique called Nightfall, and this patterned one seem to be a good background that complemented my "crazy-quilt" pumpkin! I added some stitched ribbon that's been sitting in my stash forever, a black and crumb cake scalloped border and a sentiment from My Creative Time that I have had for a long time....maybe eight years? Finally, I added a couple of black cats from an Impression Obsession die set that I am embarrassed to admit that I have also had for a while and I don't think I have ever used it! But they're cute here, don't you think? Cute but not scary!
I didn't put a sentiment on the inside, because I think you could use this for a couple of occasions! SO...what will you create with our sketch this week? Remember, the stamps have to be at least one year old and you must tell us the age! Can't wait to see what you create!
Cassidy spent the weekend at Daddy's and they made cupcakes! She knows she could leave them at my house and they would be safe, because I just cannot eat anything BLUE!!! (Not so sure about Grampy!) But she was quite proud of them and she said she did all the mixing by herself! You gotta give her credit for that!
