SFYTT OVAL PUNCH PUMPKINS

Here is the third card I created for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try. I am so pleased with the way this design turned out ... (if I do say so myself!) If you're a regular reader, you know I don't always love what I create. Thanks to many wonderful readers who leave such nice comments about my work, I have gotten more confident. This is probably one of my all-time favorite cards I've ever created ... I'm such an Autumn kind of person ... love all the colors!

This card uses the new Autumn Vine Designer Paper from the current '08 Holiday Mini Catalog ... YUMMY!!!! The pumpkins are created using the Small and Large Oval Punches with the middle layer raised on dimensionals. The stem of the pumpkins was created from Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, and the vine was created by wrapping a sliver of Sage Shadow cardstock around a pen to give it the curl. There are many raised layers to this card ... even the main designer paper panels backed in Chocolate Chip CS are raised. Natural Hemp Twine was tied through the Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets.RECIPE
Stamps: Holidays & Wishes
Paper: Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Natural Hemp Twine, Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Small Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Crop-A-Dile
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

OMG this is so cool! The oval pumpkins with the designer papers and Jen's sketch are a perfect combination!
So pretty!

joybob said...

I love your 3-D pumpkins. They are so easy to make and turn out so good. We sponged the outer edges of each piece of the pumpkin with ink which gave it depth. KWIM? Love the paper and your card.

Amy Sheffer said...

Love the card! I have the oval punches but never saw them in anyother color other than bright orange and that didn't do it for me. I think that I will make a pumpkin card today.

What an awesome card! I really want to try this, as I have both of these punches. Who would have thought they'd make a pumpkin? That's why I go to other people's blogs so that I can use their cretive minds! ;)

I love visiting your blog, you always inspire. I'm usually just a *stalker*, but I had to comment on this one!

I also live in the Valley....out in the SE valley in Gold Canyon. Do you know where that is?

Keep on creating!! :)

You're absolutely right to be so happy with the way this card turned out. I love everything about it-the 3-D pumpkins, the cute stem and paper curls and the jumbo eyelets with hemp. And I think this DP is one of SU's best ever as well. LOVE using the Sage Shadow with the more traditional fall colors. Simply perfect, Nancy!
