Happy Fall Pumpkins

If you need some inspiration to get you crafting for Fall, head on over to eclectic Paperie and pick up some of the new Simple Stories “Harvest Lane” paper!  This 6x6 paper pad is FULL of some of the most fun patterns for Fall…. I guarantee it’ll put you in the Autumn-creation mood!  :)
I got these great pumpkins from Outlines Rubber Stamps last year, and I just love ‘em for paper piecing.  I stamped each pumpkin with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder before cutting out all the pieces.  Then I used the “Happy Fall” sentiment from the Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch ala’ modes set from My Favorite Things and stamped it on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics.  I embellished with a button from the Mango Madness collection from eP, and tied it off with some ivory cotton string.  The layout for my card is from sketch #30 at Retro Sketches this week.
Happy stamping, and thanks for stopping by!
