Autumn Harvest Hello Friend

Hello Friends! I made another Fall card last night and decided it was time to use a set other than the leaves! I saw this one in my stack the other day and didn't use it, but went right back to it tonight for the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch that I was playing along with. This was one of those that took longer than it should have to put together, but I was watching TV and not focusing! Here is what I came up with!


Card base is Early Espresso. Background layer is Crumb Cake that I first put through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Folder. After texturing, I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie and Spritzed it with Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso & Crumb Cake. The images were stamped on Naturals Ivory in Early Espresso, then colored with a Blender Pen and Classic Ink. Pumpkins are Pumpkin Pie, the leaves Early Espresso & the gourd (or squash?) is Crumb Cake. I did add a little Pumpkin Pie marker as well on the pumpkins. I also Spritzed this layer, with Crumb Cake & Early Espresso, mostly around the edges. This is layered onto Pumpkin Pie. I was looking for something different for the saying, so I grabbed the Fundamental Phrases set and the Stamp-a-ma-jig and put Hello Friend together on the Small Oval punch. The Small Oval is layered on a Large Espresso Oval and attached with dimensionals over a 1/8" Taffeta ribbon in Early Espresso.  The 1-1/4" Espresso Striped Grosgrain was attached to the Crumb Cake, behind the Pumpkin layer.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to see if I can be productive today!

Beautiful background. You've captured fall. I love how you colored the pumpkin images. I was trying to not buy so many stamps this season but it's not working. Seeing your card is making me want to order this set.
Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
