Pretty Pumpkins Thankful Card

Pumpkins, Leaves & Autumn! My favourite time of year is here. Cooler days, crisp nights, and the beautiful oranges and reds. On Saturday I was able to participate in a Stampin' Expo put on by another Canadian demonstrator. We used the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set and Detailed Pumpkin dies to create cards and learned from other demonstrators. One of reasons I love being a demonstrator is the chance to meet other demonstrators: to make a new friend, swap card ideas and maybe even learn a tip or technique from them.
The Pretty Pumpkins bundle, shown above, has wonderful detailed die cuts of the pumpkins and leaves as well as dies that will cut out most of the stamp images. What do you think of the 3 die cut pumpkins on the card? For the intricate pumpkin I suggest putting a piece of Adhesive Sheet onto the backside of the cardstock first, then die cut the pumpkin. Saves you from the extra mess of either the liquid glue or the Fine-tip glue.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - September

Hello! Welcome to September's Colour Combo Blog Hop. Autumn is my favourite time of year. Doesn't this month's colour combo of Blushing Bride, Cinnamon Cider and Mango Melody give off fall-ish vibes? 
Thinking of fall had me looking over my stamp collection to see what one would be the best fit for these colours. After a few that might have worked (Enjoy the Moment and Tasteful Touches stamp sets), the Season's Blessings stamp set and Seasonal Basket dies ended up being the clear winner.
Thankfully the dies have 3 leaf dies that match the 3 different sizes of leaves in the stamp set. This is very helpful when stamping then die cutting many leaves. The edges of the leaves are inked with Cinnamon Cider ink using the rock and roll technique. Having all these leaves scattered over my desk made me think about the leaves that will soon be scattered over the yard. Thankfully most of the leaves stay on our neighbour's yards! Do you like raking leaves or do you leave them?
Next up you can visit these other blogs to see what they are sharing with us today:

Whale of A Time Birthday Card

How do you decide what colours to use for your projects? Sometimes I will pull ink pads off the shelf and arrange them on my desk to see what colour combination inspires me. Or I'll check Stampin' Up!'s catalogues and see what I can find on Pinterest.
Whale of A Time stamp set is one of my favourites but least used stamp set! The sentiments are whale done! lol Seriously tho, the sentiments are pretty great. Who can resist "Hoping all your birthday FISHES come true"? 
This week, the projects you'll see will feature at least 1 green Stampin' Up! colour in the design. Want to see more Green Inspiration? Follow me on Pinterest and view my green board: www.pinterest.com/FromWhereIStamp
