Not So Spooky Pumpkins for FMS308 and PP366

Well hello there! It’s been quite some time since I have posted but I thought I would dust the cobwebs off this blog today and say hello! 

Where did I start when making this card? I hopped on over to Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration for my card layout. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I had to give it a go. 
I had NO idea what kind of card I wanted to make, so I checked in on the new challenge over at 
The Paper Players and the decision was made to make a Halloween-themed card. I’m not sure this is Clean-and-Simple, one day I hope to get better with that. I love the layers! 
Y’all should check out both of these blogs for amazing creative inspiration.
I didn’t really do much stamping on this card, but after the long hiatus I’ve been on, I’ll take what I can get. Ha! I used the Stampin’ Up Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies which coordinate perfectly with the pumpkin paper in the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. Super easy! 
 Although these aren’t exactly “spooky” pumpkins, they sure are cute. The expression on the smallest pumpkin’s face cracks me up! He looks really worried about something. It might be those gold glitter flourishes I added for a pop of sparkle but ended up looking like crazy arms on the big pumpkin. Oops! In retrospect, that really is kind of spooky. 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! There are going to be a lot of changes here soon…all good things, I promise. Enjoy your day! 

Happy Stamping!
