I’d Pick You, Pumpkin!

Admittedly, I’m team Pumpkin Spice starting September 1st. Ten days into the month and I’ve already indulged in a least that many different treats made from this glorious gourd, so I needed to make a card that declares my devotion.

After you download the tutorial and create your own card, would you share a link to your favorite pumpkin recipe in the comments? I’m always looking for the best things to bake with pumpkin this time of year!

Just a quick reminder: Today is the last day to register for the Fall StampFest in Southern Utah on September 25th and get a discounted ticket! Click the image to go to the event registration page:

Be Dazzling…everything

Today I opened and played with the Be Dazzling Designer Series Paper that is going to be a free product to choose with a $50 (US) order for Sale-a-Bration (starting tomorrow, 8/3/21) and let me tell you, I’ve looked around my studio for anything else I can “Be Dazzle”!

Until I took this paper out of the package, I didn’t realize how the faceted pieces caught the light and reflected it! It’s a lovely champagne color and coordinates with gold, so I embossed the greeting in gold embossing powder for the first card and used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut a “frame” from the Be Dazzling paper. The sneak peek of the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set is from the Aug-Dec mini catalog which goes live tomorrow as well!

You can also add COLOR to this sparkling paper: I used a blending brush with the Pumpkin Pie ink pad on this pumpkin and it took the color beautifully. Then I tried a Stampin’ Blends marker to color the leaf, and it worked too! HOWEVER: I would use OLD Stampin’ Blends markers if you want to color the paper, as it’s very rough and may cause the tip of your marker to fray.

This simple card would be a lovely invitation for a fall party or Thanksgiving feast!

When you purchase the supplies to make these cards (list below), you could choose the Be Dazzling paper FREE (while supplies last) for Sale-a-Bration and may even qualify for more than one S-A-B reward!
