Hey There Pumpkin

Happy Friday and Happy October!  We are mixing things up a bit this month and our Blog Hop will be happening RIGHT HERE on Friday, October 8 instead of today, the first Friday of the month.  We didn’t want to leave you with nothing to see if you came looking for it, so here’s a throwback card from our blog hop last October!  The team is working hard to bring you a super fun hop next week, so we hope to see you then!  For now, enjoy!

I’m featuring Autumn Blessings by MFT once again!  I had a card idea in mind, but tweaked it a bit at the end and added some PSL vibes 😉 so I hope you like it!

I colored up the pumpkins from the MFT set and the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp by Lawn Fawn with Distress Ink & water.   They were all stamped on water color card stock with Archival Ink.  I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I decided afterwards that this would be a fun project for Distress Embossing Glaze, so I used Clear Embossing Pen to color in the mug and glazed it to give a nice shiny mug!  I used the glaze over Clear Embossing Ink on the sentiment, which I stamped directly on the Kraft card base.

I really wanted to pair these pumpkins with Buffalo Plaid, but my new stamp didn’t arrive in time (I’ll have some fun with it in the near future though!) so I found some patterned paper to use.  A touch of silk ribbon and some glitter (Distress Stickles are the perfect ‘spice’ here… they are discontinued, but still a fave of mine.  Buy some if you find them!) are the finishing touches for my fun FALL card!

I’m not gonna lie, autumn cards are my favorite and I love seeing the creative mix of cards by everyone this time of year.

Inky hugs,

Tara
