Welcome back to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. We have some pretty yarn to inspire you!
I wasn’t worried if I got all five colors on my card, but I managed! And I think this card turned out so TOTALLY cool! I wanted to replicate the wood squared off pumpkins I have been seeing everywhere…and the Countryside Corners Dies worked perfectly! I did a simple technique to give the pumpkins a more rustic look using Whisper White Craft Ink!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Mossy Meadow cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded to form the base card.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla cardstock was added on front and the greeting from Autumn Leaves stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink in the upper right corner.
- Three sizes of pumpkins were cut with the Countryside Corners Dies from Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Lost Lagoon cardstock. They were sponged with the same colors ink and the Pumpkin Pie pumpkin had some Cajun Craze added, too. Then I used the edge of the Whisper White Craft Pad and ran it along the length of each pumpkin in “stripes”. Cool effect!
- The stems were hand-cut from Copper Clay cardstock and adhered behind the pumpkins that were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The leaves were cut from Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Pumpkin Pie cardstocks with the Autumn Leaves Dies and added to the base of the pumpkins.
- Some Linen Thread was tied in a bow and added to the large pumpkin with a Mini Glue Dot.
SOOOO happy with how this turned out! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
