In The Pumpkin Patch – Getting Ready

Welcome back!  Are you ready for Halloween?  Time to decorate and I am taking a trip to the Pumpkin Patch…

Playing with a variety of challenges for this card: Try Stampin’ On Tuesday’s (#577); Can You Handle The Pressure (#17); Stampin’ Up! Only (#312); Four Seasons (October); Double Trouble (#122) partnering with Jan’s’ Digi Stamps (October).

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½¼” scored at 4¼”) Basic Black cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Peekaboo Peach cardstock (retired color)
    • The left and right sides were dry-embossed with the retired Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.
  • Accent Mat: (4” x 3¾”) Basic Black cardstock.
  • Front Panel: (4” x 3½”) Pumpkin patterned piece of paper from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The original White and Cajun Craze Pumpkins were colored with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend Marker to appear more “Orange”.
  • Side Rectangle: (1½” x 4¼”) Basic Black cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, You are a real blessing…, from the Blessings of Home stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
    • The strip was also dry-embossed with the same Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.
  • Circle Shape – Pumpkin: A single Pumpkin was fussy cut from the same patterned paper and also colored with the Stampin’ Blend Marker.
  • Flag Shape: (1” x ¾”) Scrap cardstock.
    • Using some beautiful Copper Metallic Variegated Shimmer Yarn from my stash, I wrapped the cardstock scrap.

All of the elements were adhered to the card base to resemble the sketch.  The single Pumpkin, that I chose from the Pumpkin Patch, was popped up with Dimensionals.

Not strictly a Halloween card but I am getting my front porch ready for the Ghosts and Goblins that will be coming by to visit.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda.

  2. Jolanda, what a beautiful patterned paper and the panel match with the sentiment. The embossed backgrounds bring a lot of dimenstion to your card… love that varrigated shimmer yarn as an embellishment… beautiful sentiment and card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Jan’s Digis Blog Challenge.
