Hi everyone. The weather is a little crazy here today so I've spent a bit of time making some cards.
I've actually made two cards because I wanted to join in with the Twofer challenge. The word this fortnight is Harvest. 'Harvest' is more an American term? Regardless, I decided to challenge MYSELF and play along :) I decided to use a pumpkin stamp to reflect Harvest.
Here are my two cards -
My first card used the pumpkin from a STAMPlorations set. I embossed and masked the image and watercoloured it with my Zigs. I then fussy cut the whole thing out, adhered it to my card base, and lastly added the die cut sentiment.
Now bear with me... LOL. I also thought that with the Harvest theme, it is also the time that Thanksgiving is coming up in America? That's why I decided on the 'Thanks' sentiment :)
My second card was a light bulb moment. I decided to use the pumpkin to create my very own Jack 'o Lantern. This wasn't easy so I don't know how people cut through a REAL pumpkin to create these. Must be tough work! I then decided I HAD to have him light up just like a lantern so I used my Chibitronics supplies to do just that.
These cards were a lot of fun to make and made me think outside the box :)
I would also like to enter my cards into the following challenges -
Card 1 - Thanks Pumpkins
Sweet Stampers - Autumn or Halloween
Card 2 - Halloween Pumpkin
Cards in Envy - Spooky
Use your stuff - Halloween
That's it for me today - nearly time for bed! Thanks for popping in :)
