CARD DETAILS

The Pumpkin Patch Critters stamp set features adorable critter peeking from behind various size pumpkins. I thought they would make a great focal point for simple, easy to make Fall greeting cards for family & friends.

I made 4 cards to create a set, all feature the same layout and supplies and are very easy to make – you just need a handful of things. I started working on these by stamping the sentiment “Autumn Greetings” in the center of 4 1⁄4 x 5 1⁄2” panels. Next, I stamped a pumpkin and critter above the sentiment in Copic-marker friendly ink.

Once my stamping was done I used Copic markers (as I consider them to be a quick and efficient way to color) to color. I used:

●  YR07, YR04, Y17 and Y15 for the pumpkins;
●  YG95 and YG99 to color stem of the pumpkins;
●  W3 and W 1 to color bunny and cat;
●  E79, E37, E33 and YR04 to color the fox and squirrel.

I wanted to add something else to my projects, so I decided I’d stamp tiny florals. I used Bold Blooms stamp set for this. This is a smaller set with a bunch of beautiful flowers that work really great as little accents on cards. In my recent video, featuring the Happy Mail stamp set and seasonal Happy Mail cards, I used the same flowers to dress up a mail box and they made my cards that much more beautiful and complete.

I used the same marker colors here as before plus a few yellow makers – Y35 and Y13 and once I had all of these colored I used my coordinating dies and cut these out in my die cutting machine. I did keep some of the flowers almost white by coloring them using a W1 marker for a little bit of shading.

Next, I tied gold thread into a messy bow and adhered under the stamped pumpkins. My idea was to have gold thread sticking from behind the tiny floral cluster that I foam mounted on top.

Once everything was done I trimmed my panels down to 4” wide as the stamping seemed a bit off to me, so by trimming the panel I made sure the stamping was centered. I adhered my panels onto A2 light brown woodgrain card bases and used Metallic Gold Jewels to dress these cards up. Gold seems like the perfect option for Fall, it complements the warm Autumn colors beautifully.

I also added some subtle stamping onto some of the panels using yellow ink and images from the Holiday Greetings stamp set.

Have fun stamping!
