Advice from a Pumpkin

Hi there!

I LOVE using pumpkins in my autumn cards and over the years, I’ve collected all sorts of pumpkins – dies, stamps, stencils, papers, stickers…. everything really! They remind me of the fabulous displays I see in the US at this time of year. So much fun!

Anyway, it looks like I’ve tried to cram in as much of my collection as possible on this card, doesn’t it (believe me, I have MUCH more!!).

I started with the background and used some Cosmic Shimmer glitter paste and a Carta Bella Stencil – love how sparkly it is. I used a Carta Bella embossing folder on white card and then stamped a wonderful Riley and Co sentiment using the gorgeous Delicata brown shimmer ink. Such a cute sentiment stamp!!

To finish off the cars, I added a few Memory Box pumpkins that I’d coloured using my Twinkling H2Os.

I’m entering this into the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge and also the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – shimmer and shine.

Thanks for stopping by!
