The winds are blowing, the leaves are falling and the cold air is coming...

All these things gave me the inspiration for the following card and challenges...



I started with a cream card stock base card.
I stamped the Impression Obsession pumpkin H1844 and verse B8182 in an unusual way.
Here is what the stamps actually look like...

But I only wanted the pumpkin and a few leaves and the verse in a line.
I pulled out my dark brown LePlume marker and colored in only the bits of the pumpkin stamp first and got that situated on the card front.
They I colored one word of the verse at a time and stamped it to the card front.
You must clean the stamp really well and dry it thoroughly before going to the next word.
Then I picked out the leaves and added them.
Once that was done I colored the leaves and pumpkin using my Derwent Inktense pencils.
I chose a piece of rust card stock that went well with the pumpkin's colors and ran it through my Bigkick with We R Memory Keepers quilted embossing folder.
Once it was trimmed as I liked it I glued it down.

Isn't it fun to use stamps in a whole new way???

Beautiful card! I love the "cozy" feel of it with the quilted embossing. Wonderful use of your sentiment stamp to work better for you. Thanks for playing along with us over at Cards in Envy!
