Pumpkin in the Window


Although it's quite hot here in Alabama, I decided to do a fall themed card just for a little change.  The Pumpkin Patch is part of the Fall Harvest stamp set by Sparkle N Sprinkle and the sentiment is from the Shabby Chic Birdhouse set.

I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it down to fit the Our Daily Bread Window die set (which includes the window and all the curtain pieces).  I added a piece of acetate behind the window panes for a more realistic look.  The curtain pieces are covered with Mustard flock and highlighted with  a Distress Marker (Mustard Seed).

The "wallpaper" background is an M-Bossabilites embossing folder called Dainty Dots.  It's one of the newer Spellbinders folder that's approximately 8" x 11".  I love that large size as it allows me to emboss an entire sheet of cardstock at one time (no more seams).  Distress Ink (Scattered Straw) was lightly blended over the dots to give it a bit of color and to make it look more like wallpaper.

The sentiment was stamped with Staz-On and cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.  Next came out the Cloud Nine Velvet glitter to give it a sparkly look.  A couple of pearls on either side complete the look.  I also pop dotted the center of the tag so that it bowed outward.

Anne, I'd forgotten you lived in Alabama! Is this where I'm suppose to say "Roll Tide"!!!
Love your fall card and can't think of a better time of year to post it! The little pumpkin through that window is adorable and love the shine of the sentiment.

The sparkle makes that sentiment even prettier. Fun window scene - very creative. I was so looking forward to Spring and Summer but now I am looking forward to Fall. Has felt a bit more like it with all the rain - hope you are getting some too. Hugz!
