Harvest Hellos, Itty Bitty Greetings, Halloween Card

While looking for just one more card to make using my September Paper Pumpkin kit, I ran across this card. I just love how the pumpkin just jumps off the plain white background. SO, I got out my stuff and got to work.

There was no link to the original card so I had to wing it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

I cut a 1" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Regals 6" x 6" paper stack. The DSP in the original card is from the retired Regals 6" x 6" stack. I might have had some left but I was trying to use current items. So I thought the woodgrain DSP would work just fine.  And it did. I taped the strip to the right side of the card.

The pumpkin is from the "Harvest Hellos" set and was stamped using Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored the pumpkin using both light and dark Pumpkin Pie Blends pens. The face on the pumpkin is from the same set and was stamped using black Memento ink. The ink kind of hit and missed so I colored in the missed parts using the Basic Black marker. 

The stem was stamped using Soft Suede ink and was colored in using the light Soft Suede Blends pen. Then I fussy cut it.

The leaves were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink and were colored in using the light Granny Apple Green Blends Pen.  If you don't have Blends pens you can use ink pads and a Blender pen or markers (colored on one of you clear stamping blocks or a piece of plastic) and your Blender pen. I like the Blends pens because they don't wear the card stock if you color too much in one area. They end up bleeding a little and smelling like rubbing alcohol. But they don't make the paper pill. I stamped three leaves and fussy cut them. 

I glued the stem in place on the pumpkin. and then the leaf.

I set the pumpkin on the front of the card where I thought it would look best. I needed to see where I was going to stamp the curly image. I ended up covering up most of it. I should have moved my pumpkin over a little or better yet, I should have stamped the curls to the left a bit more.  Stamp one of them first, set the pumpkin back on to see where the second one should go. I was going to move my pumpkin just a little more to the right but then it would be too close to the DSP, so I just left it as it was. I set the pumpkin in place using Dimenisonals. 

The other two leaves were set in place.

Then the words were added. They are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set and were stamped using Soft Suede ink. And the card was done.

Isn't it just bright and cheery?  It's got such a positive look to it.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
