Ending the Season With a Pumpkin
Happy Thanksgiving!! For those of us in the U.S.A., we are celebrating our day of thanks on Thursday.
I know I have so much for which to be thankful and could never list it all here. I hope everyone
enjoys their day with family and friends.
When I saw this adorable pumpkin belonging to Marisa at Rosemary Reflections, I knew I wanted to try to make one. So, when I learned the CCEE Stampers challenge given by Vicky this week was to make a card using brown, yellow, and orange and also include some patterned paper, this was my chance. Mine is different but the same idea.
My hair stylist got this card and she loved it. That makes me happy.
I cut my card shape with a Spellbinders circle nestabilitie, using my largest one. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a distressed stripes embossing folder. The curly cues were made by wrapping my creamy cocoa cardstock around a piercing tool, the sharp end. I think the smaller item you can use for tightly wrapping, the better the curl. My leaves were made with a EK Tools layering punch/Fall leaf. The banner and pumpkin stem are hand cut and the sentiment is from Stampabilities and is called Happy Thanksgiving.
Paper is Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/Orangie Sunset, SU Chocolate Chip, yellow scraps, Creamy Cocoa/unknown, My Mind's Eye/Tiny Dots dp
