An Easy Pick a Pumpkin

Pick a Pumpkin.0917My Halloween and Fall Card Buffet is coming up next week so I needed to design some easier cards.  Today’s card is what I came up with for the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set.

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!
