"Fall/Autumn/Halloween" Theme Stampers Showcase Blog Hop...


Beautiful Leaves, Sparkle of the Season

Good afternoon and welcome to the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop.  Today we are creating for Fall, Autumn, Halloween.  My favourite time of year.

I started by creating my pumpkin.  This is a really simple punch art pumpkin made from four circles (you can catch the video tutorial in Tutorials - Monday Mashup).  I hand cut the stalk and the leaves are cut from the little flower from the Strawberry Builder punch.  All pieces were distressed slightly using Cinnamon Cider ink.  The thread is linen thread coloured with an Old Olive Stampin' Blend.

I then randomly sponged some coloured inks on to a piece of scrap Basic White cardstock before cutting out the leaves using the Beautiful Leaves dies.

The background is made using the Bark 3D Embossing Folder.

I arranged all the pieces on to my card before adding my greeting and the bats from the Sparkle of the Season bundle.

Happy Stampin'
