Jessica’s Great Pumpkin Card!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Awesome Autumn challenge! Autumn is my favorite time of year and it’s just not the season without my annual viewing of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown so I used that as inspiration for my card today!

To start I blended Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot distress oxide ink onto a panel of white cardstock to create a night sky. Then I die-cut the Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape from Black Licorice Cardstock and layered it over the blended background. I die-cut a large circle from the Circle Stackables and blended a little Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed distress oxide ink to create a glowing moon. Next I die-cut the Bayou Backdrop twice and the leaves from Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait from Noble Fir cardstock and blended a little Black Soot distress oxide ink onto some of the greenery. I set those aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

Next I stamped my Pick of the Patch pumpkins three times with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers, die-cut them with the coordinating dies, and then went over the edges of the die-cut images with a black Copic marker so they would blend better with the background. I also stamped my sentiment with Milo’s ABCs onto white cardstock, trimmed it down to create a sign and added a little Copic shading.

Then I tucked my moon behind the Stitched Hillside, and added my pumpkins and “vines.” I added a few accents with a white gel pen and stars in the sky with a white paint pen. I tucked in my sign and then finished the card with a few blasts of silver glitter dust for even more sparkle!!

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your Awesome Autumn creations! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Caly used our Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On to create a super fun interactive design! She combined Thanks a Bushel with the cute bear from For You Deer with a bright blend of ink in the background! She used the banner from Double Slider Surprise to add the sweet sentiment!

How much fun is Christy‘s design! I love how she “removed” the ice skates from our Mice on Ice so they can take a stroll through an Autumn landscape created with Stitched Tree Borders and Fall Fling paper!

Nothing says Awesome Autumn like our Happy Harvest scarecrow, sunflowers and cute crows! Franci gave her design a lovely warm hued sky!

Jessica built a beautiful Autumn scene with Leafy Tree Backdrop along Thanks a Bushel, Pick of the Patch and Fairy Friends!

Joyce created a Tree Before ‘n Afters card with a wish for happiness all year featuring an Awesome Autumn scene! She used a cottage from Winter Village in each window of the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to complete the little scenes!

Karin‘s fun Fall design starts with the Jump for Joy owl and leaves swirling in the breeze! Of course the Butterfly Kisses fox is running to catch them!

Even a fun-loving Yeti can enjoy the change of seasons by jumping in a pile of leaves! Samantha C used a Stitched Hillside Backdrop with Fall Fling papers to build her Awesome Autumn scene!

Samantha was inspired by Chari’s card to create her beautiful Autumn scene! She combined the Joy to the Woods trees with a canopy of Puffy Cloud Border. Those cute critters are from Upon a Star!
