Hello Pumpkin!

Hello Pumpkin!



Happy Friday everyone! It's Cathy here sharing a simple card today using the cute new Pumpkin Bear stamps!

Teal is my favorite color, so how happy was I when  I turned to Pinterest for a little color scheme inspiration and found a fabulous photo of Fairytale and Jarrahdale pumpkins! I didn't know teal pumpkins actually exist in nature!

Super simple design on this card which I started by die-cutting the white background panel and inking a stencil with Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber distress inks. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from the set.

I then die-cut a strip of patterned paper using the same die and adhered it to the panel. I wrapped a piece of twine around the panel, tied a little bow and matted the panel on a teal cardstock.



I stamped the bear image and masked it before stamping the pumpkins. I colored them all with Copics and fussy cut them out. Since it's nearly impossible to fussy cut the fringe on the scarf, I cut the fringe off and glued some black embroidery floss to the back of the scarf and trimmed it down.

To add a little dimension, I used foam adhesive to glue the bear and pumpkins to the card front.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you again soon!
