Hello Pumpkin ...

I'm having such a great time with coloring pumpkins and making fall cards this year.  Love this stamp set by Verve.  Today's card was inspired by this week's MOJO sketch ... 

This is what my inky fingers created ...
Stamps:  Bountiful Harvest (Verve)
Paper:  White, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Summer Starfruit
Ink:  Memento Black, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Summer Starfruit
Accessories:  Swiss dots and swirls embossing folder (CB), sponge dauber, Copics, Signo gel pen, Nestabilities circle and scallop dies, ribbon (Non SU), glimmer brad
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.
  • I sponged Summer Starfruit and Old Olive around the pumpkins.
  • I added a little white dot on each scallop.  I've seen a lot of cards done like that and really like the look.
  • After embossing my white panel, I swiped my ink pad over it to ink only the raised dots.
  • I made a double bow (can't really tell by the picture) and finished it off with a glimmer brad.  

After over 21 years of being a stay-at-home mom and volunteering, I am heading back into the working world.  I think I've found the perfect job for me.  A new Michael's is opening up near my house so I applied and got a position.  I am excited to start this new venture.  My daughter said "Talk about adding fuel to the fire."  I thought that was so funny ... and so true.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,

Pam love your pumpkin card! So cute and double bow looks FAB. I especially like the glimmer brad center. Hugs.
on a side note: Congrats on your new adventure! Wow. I'm finding it hard to think it exciting when ALL I can think of is the day I DON'T have to go to work! Will retirement ever come? Hugs.

Oh, what a super 'Pumpkin' creation, Pam. I love those orange pumpkins and, of course, I love that polka dot bg. Great idea swiping the pad over for color on the embossing folder.

Well, I see the ones still working are dying to retire and the retired (or never worked?) are wanting to go to work. LOL That's too funny.

I was glad to see you had a new card so I can wish you a Happy Birthday. Hope it is fun.
