Pumpkin Spice


Hello there!  Today I have a design team project for Pattie's Creations featuring Pumpkin with Vines, a beautiful image that would compliment any Autumn project.  Closer to Thanksgiving, I am going to make place cards individualized with each family member's name on it for my holiday dinner.  For this card,  I have colored the image with Copic markers and added bling with Stickles in similar colors.  I stamped the sentiment from an Unity Stamp Co set with Versamark ink and embossed it with copper embossing color.  For the embellishment, I used a gold leaf charm from my stash and added hemp cord.  The papers are from a Recollections paper pad called, Thankful Heart.   The card came together pretty easily which is very important as the holiday season starts to gear up.
I still haven't comprehended that the summer is over. I was in North Carolina last weekend soaking in some of the last summer rays.  It was a hot one too... 97 degrees on Sunday!  If you have followed me for any amount of time, you know that I don't love Winter and wear my flip flops until snow has fallen.  I am so thankful for the record highs this week and pray there aren't any record low temperatures in my near future... lol.  Without further ado

Products used:  white/peach card stock, Recollections dsp, copic markers, stickles, hemp cord, gold leaf embellishment, Versamark ink, Judikins copper embossing powder, Unity Stamp Co itty bitty Pumpkin Spice, and Pumpkin with Vines digital stamp
