Thanksgiving


I haven't made pumpkins with my old SU! oval punches in a long time, so I took out some orange cardstock and made some for this card. I used the large oval punch for the large pumpkin, and the smaller oval punch for the other one. I sponged the edges of each oval with chocolate chip ink before assembling them, adding a hand-cut stem and some vines with a couple shreds of green cardstock wound around a knitting needle to curl them. The lower panel is a piece of BoBunny dsp that I embossed with a Darice "fall leaf" embossing folder, then sponged assorted autumn colors on the raised portions. I cut a strip of grass with a SNSS die, then cut a fence with another SNSS die, and placed them in front of the pumpkins. I punched a piece of green cardstock with a SU! scalloped border punch, and added a strip of coordinated BoBunny dsp for a little contrast. The greeting was white heat-embossed on black and is from the SU! teeny tiny wishes stamp set.

I'm sharing this with the Tuesday Throwdown TT#314 challenge - which is "leaves."

I'm also sharing it with the Double D challenge which is "pumpkin time."

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you do!

The punched pumpkins are so cute. I really like the embossed and sponged paper. It has a lot of depth. :)

What a gorgeous card this is. I love the way you made the pumpkins with all the stem detail. They look amazing. I've embossed paper before but love your idea of inking over it afterwards. It's a great effect Carol. A very clever card. Barbxx

Oh my, this card is gorgeous, Carol! I sat here and just looked it over in awe of all the neat things on it! The pumpkins are just amazing, the embossed dsp is gorgeous and I love the grass/fence & pumpkin panel. So pretty and just perfect to go with this beautiful Fall day we are having! TFS and I hope you are enjoying the nice weather! Thanks for the note on the Lawn Fawn snowy hills die. I am going to have to look into those! Hugs~

This is such a wonderful idea and I just LOVE the beautiful Fall scene that you've created with those pumpkins, grass and fence!! I always forget to make pumpkins with the ovals too! :) Thanks for the reminder! HUGS

A lovely card Carol, I love the gorgeous autumnal colours especially on the embossed leaves. Clever use of the die cuts to make the pumpkins too.

I've always liked these oval pumpkins. This is a nifty punch art card. That embossing folder is something else. And I must say your coloring of it is out of this world. That's a talent I do not possess.
