In A Pumpkin Daze

Today I have the honor of being part of Jill Foster’s (Inspired By) blog takeover week! 

While she is taking time to be with family and friends, I am “blog-sitting” for her today. 

This is the little Halloween treat that I am sharing over at Jill’s….

To see the card that Jill created that inspired my design, please stop by her blog “here”.  I also have all the materials used for this card with links to the Mementos store if you need to replenish any of your supplies.

If you would like to jump in and create this dazed pumpkin, these are the detailed instructions:
  • Create a 2 7/8 x 3 5/8-inch card from white cardstock and ink the edges with the black PITT pen. 
  • Stamp “Creepy Crawlies” on a 2 ¾ x 3 ½-inch piece of orange cardstock with black ink.   Distress with Toffee VersaFine and edge the cardstock with the black PITT pen.  Adhere to the front of the prepared card.  Set aside.
  • Stamp 4 borders (from the transparent set Halloween Treats) on white cardstock with black ink.  Color with Copics (YG13, V15, V17) and trim.  Edge all cut sides with the black PITT pen.
  • Stamp the sentiment in black on a 2 ½ x 3 ¼-inch piece of white cardstock.  Use the borders from the previous step to create a frame around the cardstock.  Attach to the front of the card with dimensional foam.
  • Stamp the pumpkin on a separate piece of white cardstock with black ink.  Color with Copics (Y02, Y19, YR16, YR65) trim and attach to the card with dimensional foam.
  • Stamp 2 stars and 1 moon in black ink.  Trim and add as accents to the design.
  • For a fun embellishment add a google eye to the pumpkin.

Thank you for joining me here and at Jill’s. 

I am off to make sure that I left everything neat and tidy on Jill’s blog for her next guest!
