Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge


Scroll down if you are looking for the Tour de Freaks Blog Tour!

This is going to be REAL quick since I’m falling asleep in my chair!  I spent the day packing and moving my son to his new apartment.  I’m exhausted!  I think I went up and down steps at least 50 times!

I loved this week’s Stamping 411 Sketch challenge!  Here I used Autumn Harvest…it is going to be fall soon and the leaves will be turning and the pumpkins will be sprouting up on everyone’s doorsteps!  This is a favorite standby set for me to use in the fall.

I started with a base of Always Artichoke.  I stamped the pumpkins with Basic Brown on Very Vanilla and used my Stampin’ Up! markers and AquaPainter to color them.  I layered this piece on Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the leaf image on Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red and cut them out, placing them under the pumpkins.  I put some Autumn Traditions striped Designer Paper on the Soft Suede layer, and tied some Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around it.  Finally, I stamped Thanks from the set Thank You Kindly in Basic Brown in the lower left corner.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators and their designs!
