Mornin’, y’all! Well – here ’tis. The day before the big exodus to Utah! I’m about to switch to “go” mode – that moment when my brain stops fighting it and just decides to do it and get ‘er done.
Well. Maybe not quite yet. Soon, though, I’m sure! 🙂
Had a “fun” day yesterday – our extra freezer decided it was time to call it a day. So – big shuffle of frozen food to the other freezer spaces. Did use the opportunity to get rid of those things no longer identifiable. Or so freezer burned that…yea, unidentifiable. So that happened. Our neighbor is a refrigeration guy so he came and looked at it – told us we should replace the compressor and keep this one (it’s 20 years old). Said the new ones are….problematic. So that’s what we’ll do!
Or – Wayne will do it next week.
My project for today is another Fall-themed card using the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits and some Painted Autumn DSP. With a little Labels to Love sentiment thrown in for good measure. Take a look-see:
The layout is inspired by the sketch at the MFT Card Challenge.
And the color palette hails from the Color Throwdown challenge.
I started with a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP and I matted it on Soft Sky for the card front. Then there’s a strip of Very Vanilla on Soft Sky adhered with Liquid Glue and I wrapped a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.
Last up is another design from the Painted Autumn, also on Soft Sky, that I popped over the Very Vanilla strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My sentiment, from Labels to Love, is stamped on Very Vanilla. I used my Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly. Then I cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
I fussy cut a trio of pumpkins from a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP and used my Early Espresso Marker to edge it – that helps to give it a little “substance”. I used the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits to cut a large pumpkin in Cajun Craze, a couple of Garden Green Leaves, one Soft Sky leaf and a couple of Peekaboo Peach tendrils.
I used Liquid Glue to add the various elements – topping them all off with the fussy cut pumpkins, which are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I tied a bow with the Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot. Tip – take a little piece of thread (I used Gold Metallic Thread) and tie it around the ribbon that is laid across the card front. When you “cinch” the knot down, it helps to create the illusion that the bow was actually tied from a single piece of ribbon.
I added a few Garden Green Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!
On the inside, I inked up a pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin set in Peekaboo Peach, then used Tangerine Tango on a Sponge Dauber to add some depth around the edges. I stamped it a second time on a Sticky note and cut it out as a mask. Then I inked the smaller pumpkin in Peekaboo Peach and shaded it with Cajun Craze, then stamped it over the taller (and now masked) pumpkin. I used my Early Espresso Marker to touch up the stems.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Soft Sky mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another couple of Pick a Pumpkin pumpkins on the front…
…and the envelope flap got some more of the Painted Autumn DSP.
Et Voila! This Pick a Pumpkin bundle, with the matching Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits might well be one of my favorites in the entire Holiday Catalog! I really love it – especially when paired up with the oh-so-gorgeous Painted Autumn DSP. Hope you like!
