Happy Fall


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a little plaque I made for fall. I have seen alot of the white pumpkin/gourds around for the last couple of years in the craft stores and I thought I would try my hand at making one. I used very vanilla card stock and the wide oval punch. I sponged the edges of the vanilla ovals with crumb cake ink. I thought it looked cute, I made a couple of other pumkins with some punches to sit with the white one. I used the large oval punch and the 1-3/8 inch circle punch. I used pumpkin pie card stock and sponged with cajun craze ink. I added stems and some swirls to complete the "Pumpkin Trio".

The background paper on here is from the Stampin Up Well Worn paper pack. I added another piece across the bottom for the "ground". The big ol' Sunflower is made with the Blossom Punch.


I used Always Artichoke card stock for the leaves and stem and swirls. The stem is made with the Tasteful Trim Die. The leaves are from the Build a Blossom Punch too and then I folded it in half and ran through my crimper.
The "Happy Fall" is cut from the Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die. I used daffodil delight, pumpkin pie and early espresso card stock. This plaque is actually from an unfinished shadow box I got at a local craft store, but after putting together my picture it doesn't fit the frame anymore with out the edges being squished a bit. The flower and pumpkins come alittle too close to the edge, so I have been on the prowl for a slightly bigger frame for this picture, no luck so far.

Well that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
