More Pumpkins in CAS Style


Hello!  Have you seen all the decorative pumpkins on the market this year....so many patterns, glitter styles, and colors to choose? And there are so many challenges for us card makers to use our pumpkin stamps in many ways.   I chose to make this CAS design featuring Repeat Impressions stamp Prize Pumpkin which I stamped twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then Paper pieced with papers from The Apothecary Emporium pad from Echo Park and green and black CS snippets.  Using a Black Card Base I added a strip of the Harlequin pattern and the word Thanks cut with a Cheery Lynn die to complete the design.

Challenges:
The House That Stamps Built: DCC1014 Pumpkin Time
TIME OUT Challenges: #42 Photo Inspiration shown on right- inspired by the pattern pumpkin
Happy Little Stampers: October CAS Challenge Paper Piecing
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge:  #206 Black and Orange. Used portion of Thanksgiving  die to make this a Thank You card.
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Two by Two - I used 2 pumpkins and 2 patterns - harlequins and dots.
Addicted to Stamps: #166 Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy Challenge: #150 Color Challenge -use orange, black, or purple.







Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
