MTSC Halloween Smiles & Merry Christmas
Happy Hump Day Peeps!
Today I am sharing the card I made for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.
I have to say I have been feeling like I am in a creative funk lately. Everything I make is kinda blah! I sure hope this lifts soon. Every feel like that?
I started this card with a base of pumpkin pie card stock. I first made the the card 5 x 5 inches but I ended up cut it down to a 4-3/4 x 4-3/4 inch. I thought that size fit the oval I had made a bit better.
I also used basic black cardstock and the DS paper is from a retired Halloween pack.
The set I used is "Pumpkin Patch". I stamped two of the pumpkins with really rust and the center guy is stamped with pumpkin pie that I "rolled" in really rust. The center pumpkin is stamped twice. I cut one out and mounted over the first with some dimensionals. The stems, vine swirls, and grass are all stamped with old olive. I used my coluzzle to cut out the oval and my scallop oval nesties to cut the black scallop mat.
For the sentiment I inked up just a portion of the sentiment block and stamped onto white. I used the word window punch and modern label punch. I added some orange sticky pearls to the sentiment piece.
I also added some pumpkin pie ribbon and black brads to the corners. I pierced all around the outside edge too.
I tried another time with this sketch:
This one is made with old olive, real red and the DS paper is from the Merry Moments pack. The set I used is "Season of Joy".
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
