And Just like that, Summer fell into Fall with Pretty Pumpkins

I'm so glad I live in a world with October's.  I love the colors of Fall, and after the heat of Houston, TX summers, the weather in Fall is a welcome reprieve. Today I'm using the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle -- including the pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set and the Detailed Pumpkins Dies -- along with Calypso Coral Designer Series Paper and ink.  This is the kind of fast, simple card I love to put together to have on hand just to say "Hi" to a favorite aunt or a friend I haven't seen for a while.    And don't forget, until 30 September, for each $50 or $100 order you place (less tax and shipping), you'll earn FREE Sale-A-Bration selections.

The basecard for this card is Calypso Coral Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White, and then an image layer of a Calypso Coral from the Subtles 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper, which I die cut with one one of the Seasonal Labels Dies in order to print the image on the Basic White layer.

I stamped the group of pumpkins image from the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink before I assembled the Designer Series Paper layer and the Basic White Layer.  Then I stamped the large, decorated pumpkin on Basic White Cardstock with Calypso Coral ink.  I also stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink on Basic White and hand cut it so that it didn't hide the beautiful Designer Series Paper  Finally, I die cut a couple of leaves from Calypso Coral Cardstock, and added three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card

My inspiration for my card came from this card I received from Demonstrator, Diane Lethbridge, from Designs By Diane.  She used a Designer Series Paper from You're a Peach, and stamped the pumpkin trio on the inside of her card, using the die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies to create a window to see the image stamped on the inside of the card.  Very arty.  I'm going to have to try it that way next.
