There are two pumpkin stamp sets in the new Holiday Catalog and it was a tough decision on which one to choose. The Gourd Goodness has more life-like images and a couple of sentiments in it but the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set has COORDINATING framelits and you know how much I like COORDINATION! 🙂
What I like about this card is that it can you used for many different types of occasions since it doesn’t have a sentiment on it. It can be a birthday card, a thank you note or even a thinking of you card.
I stamped the large pumpkin directly on the small piece of cardstock and the other two were stamped on scrap paper and die cut. I stamped each pumpkin in the Tangerine Tango ink and before I stamped the image I colored the stem of the pumpkin on the stamp with an Old Olive marker. This is so much easier than trying to color the whole are of the pumpkin with a Tangerine Tango marker and then just the stem with the Old Olive marker.
These pumpkins are making me want to put on jeans and a sweatshirt but unfortunately the thermometer isn’t cooperating. We’re still getting 80+ degrees each day here in Denver! It looks like that might finally start changing by the end of next week. I can’t wait!
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
