Fall Fest

CAS292I haven’t had a chance to join the Clean and Simple Challenge on SCS for quite awhile.

This week it is a cool ‘State Fair’ photo…things that you would find at the State Fair!  So I thought PUMPKINS!!!

A number of years ago my dad decided to grow some pumpkins and wanted to grow some of those HUGE ones!  So he started to grow them…and grow them…and grow them!!!  Although he didn’t have any ‘award winning’ pumpkins but he did end up growing some between 800 and 900 pounds!  They were really something.

But…here’s my little CAS card and here are the details –

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Old Olive and the swish in Early Espresso
  • Add the Linen Thread using a Glue Dot
  • Stamp pumpkin using Tangelo Twist and Old Olive, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals.  Stamp leaf using Old Olive, cut out and add to finish it off.
Set(s): Fall Fest, For All Things, Work of Art
Paper: Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Tangelo Twist
Other: Linen Thread, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!


For All Things

PP215Hello FALL!  Yep…I do LOVE that greeting!  I was looking for a challenge to do today (haven’t posted since Thursday) and found a GREAT little sketch over on The Paper Players.  A while back a saw a cool card where the person used glitter on the Autumn Wooden Elements so I combined that idea with the sketch and this is what I came up with!  This is one of those…it is SOOOO much cooler in real life kind of cards!

Here’s the details –

  • Cajun Craze – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Cajun Craze – 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 – run through the Filigree Frame embossing folder and add to card front.
  • Basic Black – 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 – stamp greeting in Versamark and Gold Emboss
  • Gold Glimmer paper – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  Cut out cent of piece leaving a 1/2″ ‘frame all around.  Attach Basic Black to frame then add to card front using dimensionals
  • “open” Autumn Wood Elements – add Tombow Multipurpose glue and gold glitter – let dry
  • “solid” Autumn Wood Elements – color using the Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities
  • Add leaves to card front using Tombow to finish off.
