Pumpkin George

card with george dressed up in pumpkin outfit with a spider
i created this card for the first Without Words challenge, which is an autumn theme this month. i love the cooler temperatures and rich colours of the fall season and pumpkins popping up everywhere, so i went with molly blooms’ pumpkin george stamp. i coloured with distress ink pads, sponged the edges of the kraft mat and popped it on with foam squares. thanks for popping by.

More Thank You Cards

thank you card with acorn and oak leaf on a circle against a strip of orange and gold paper on a white card stock base
i needed some more thank you cards, so i used the bobunny acorn stamp again, but this time i made a CAS card; actually i made eight of them since they’re all going to different people. instead of colouring with distress inks, i stamped on gold paper and punched the oak leaf out of orange paper and sponged the edges of both. thanks for popping by.


card with pumpkin, acorns, oak leaves and thankful sentiment
when i dropped my DT store samples off at papercraft cafe, i found the bobunny apple cider collection and marie, the owner and enabler that she is, showed me the matching stamp set, which i had to have – i love the text and geometric designs. i coloured everything with distress inks, fussy cut the pumpkin and acorns and punched the tiny leaves from the bobunny forever fall collection. i’m submitting this to the bobunny challenge, a sketch by designer Juliana. thanks for popping by.
