IB145 Pumpkin Spice

Hello stampers!  Thursday brings us around to a new Inspired By challenge!  Here's our new photo inspiration and optional sketch:

I was inspired by the colors, the woodgrain, the jar and the little pumpkins to create my almost-no-stamping card today:

All my pumpkins were die cut with the retired Patterned Pumpkins die using Whisper White, Soft Suede, Bumblebee and Smoky Slate gingham papers;  I adhered the outline diecut to a piece of scrap paper and then filled it in with the inside pieces and trimmed it to the shape of the pumpkin.  My jar from Jar of Flowers was stamped on an Acetate sheet and hand-cut because it was too thick for the matching punch!!  I added some leaves, tendrils and foliage, and put it all on a soft gray woodgrain background:


The sentiment from Beautiful Day is stamped in Smoky Slate directly on to the DSP:


And since the Always Fun Challenge is about pumpkins this week, I am entering there too!  

I have to admit that the DT knocked this one out of the park...be sure to hop on over to the IB blog to see what they created...then share yours with us too!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for popping by today!

I try to send Cassidy some word puzzles or some activity in a card occasionally, as she loves to get mail!  She was excited to do a Halloween crossword!



Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Your eyes are good, LeAnne. I didn't notice that jar in the inspiration photo! Love your array of pumpkins and the sweet jar of Fall Foliage!
