Harvest Time!

I was thinking about making a Thanksgiving card but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I was thinking maybe you were sick of looking at Halloween and Snowman cards.
I started looking at my sets and at some samples in the Stampin' Up! catalog and I wasn't getting anywhere. I pulled out the Autumn Harvest set and just looked at it for a few minutes. I had to go to my cupboard for a stamping supply and I saw the webbing spray. Oh my, what fun that stuff is! I just LOVE it. It isn't just for Halloween ya know!!! SO I cut a piece of white and vanilla card stock into 4 pieces each and took them out in the garage to spray them. Normally I would do it outside but it was after midnight and I was in my PJ's. We have sensor lights and I REALLY didn't want the neighbors (if they were up) or any passing traffic to see me out there like that!!! NOT a pretty picture! Please don't do the visual on that, I can't afford therapy for you!!! LOL

I used Handsome Hunter for the main part of the card. I used the new "Sanded" background stamp by Stampin' Up! I opted for the vanilla card stock. It seemed to have a more mellow look with the Handsome Hunter.

I stamped the pumpkins on the watercolor paper using Black Staz-on. Again I can not emphasize enough about the Staz-on and blender pens. The pens just remove the regular black ink and you have a mess. Staz-on does what it says, it stays on!

I cut my watercolor the size I wanted for the space there and then I stamped the large pumpkin in the back first. For the other two I stamped them on a separate piece of watercolor paper and cut them out after coloring them. Same for the leaves. Masking on watercolor paper doesn't work as well as with regular card stock. Plus this way I got to place them exactly where I wanted them. I added a piece of Pumpkin Pie ribbon behind the pumpkins and I tied a bow on. I added brads to the one layer on the pumpkins. I just loved the colors of this card. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. Asking a question in the comments doesn't work. It's not set up for me to be able to reply to you. It's best to email them. And to view the photo closer, just click on it. This works for all the photos on this blog.

Thank you for stopping by,
