First of all, I have to apologize for the cheesy alliteration in the title. I couldn't help myself! I just love pumpkins! Who can resist a paper crafting pumpkin patch? Last year I took my son (who was about 14 months at the time) to the pumpkin patch mainly because I thought it would be an adorable scrapbooking page. As it turned out the weather was not great and Noah was cranky and nap-deprived. So this year I hope to have a better classic family outing to the pumpkin patch when the time arrives. Well, this card is completely made with my first stamp set debut!

OK- so back to the details of the card!
My orange base pumpkin is the Summer Sunrise PTI cardstock. I just scored the cardstock and hand sketched a pumkin then cut it out. Pumkpins are fun because they don't have to be perfect... in real life they never are! I inked the edges of the pumpkin to give it some artistic life and then cut out a green stump and glued it to the back.
The other layered pumpkins were a lot of fun,too! I used a striped pattern paper and added glitter to make the stripes stand out more. Then of course the Pumpkin stamps from Fall Elegance really make the card pop! The details of the swirly flourishes stamp with absolute perfection. And a little glitter highlights the intricacies of the stamp set. The funny thing is that this card took me absolutely NO time to make, yet when I show off my pile of projects... this one is EVERYONE'S favorite! I think other people must love pumpkins as much as I do! But who can blame me... pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, jack-o-lanterns... and then of course the Pumpkin spice candles... Oy! Pumpkins are the icon of the season!
I hope you enjoy your pumpkins from Fall Elegance! Just one more day and this set can be yours!!
