Cinderella's Pumpkin Sketch

Good morning!

Here's one more sketch card from Cammie's amazing challenge that can be found here. This card was the quickest of the three that I did and I think it's my favorite! I love every image in her Whimsical Autumn stamp set - as I'm sure you noticed since I've been sharing lots of cards made with it! Did you know that all the profits that Cammie receives from the sale of this stamp set will go to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Not for a limited time - but FOREVER. You can read all about it here on her blog. It makes me love this set even more.

Here's a closeup of the pumpkins that I paper pieced with some of that amazing Ambrosia Basic Grey paper that I used....

I stamped the image in Versafine Black ink and clear embossed it for a nice crisp look. I like to do that when I'm paper piecing to help the image really pop. I used Copic Markers to shade the pumpkin and color the image. The nestability ovals are shaded with the new Holiday Metallic Rub-on paste that Gina added to her online store. I've had it for a long time and love the colors that are in the pack.

I stamped Cammie's adorable leaf image in Buttercream Stazon on a piece of Acetate and adhered it to the card with Stampin Up's So Saffron Brads. I edged the acetate with the same buttercream stazon to define it a little.

One more detail... do you see those orange pearls that I put on my favorite scallop corner punch? They are actually white pearls that I colored with my YR09 Orange copic marker to match the paper. I used them on my little 'wish' tag too.

Of course, I had to decorate the inside of the card again in keeping with my challenge going on in Gina's forum. Have you tried it yet? If not, give it a shot - the deadline isn't until Friday, Sept. 12th at 11am. I hope you get a chance to play! You could win a free GinaK Stamp set - does that help to entice you to join us? heehee...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!
