Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop October 2021- FALL Theme- Pretty Pumpkins

 Welcome to the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the globe who do a blog hop together each month.  This month's theme is all about Fall.  We are glad you are here to join us.  We hope you gain some inspiration and creativity while you hop with us, and want to make some fall themed cards or items after hopping with us. You may have just came from Joy Nelson's blog and she shared a great fall project with us. 

I decided to use the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp set and dies for my fall themed card.  I paired it with the Beauty of the Earth DSP and I also used the Timber 3D embossing folder as well.  

My card base is a half a sheet of Merry Merlot cardstock and is cut at 5 1/2"x8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  My DSP layer is cut at 4"x5 1/4" and I then used the embossing folder to add some texture to it.  My second piece of DSP is cut at 2"x 5 1/4" and centered on the other piece of DSP to add some fall colors. I used my tombow glue to adhere these to my card base.  

I then took scraps of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot cardstock and cut out 3 pumpkins from the dies.  I interlinked them together using a couple of glue dots and then used mini dimensionals to pop them up on my DSP.  I added some Wink of Stella for some bling and then added a small double bow with some twine to the middle pumpkin.  

My sentiment is from the stamp set and I stamped it with Cinnamon Cider ink.  I fussy cut around it to not have so much white space.  I also adhered it with dimensionals as well. 

For the inside I used a piece of Basic White cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped my inside sentiment with Cinnamon Cider ink as well.  I also added a piece of the leaves DSP on the inside at the bottom and it measures 1"x 5 1/4".  

I hope you have enjoyed the card I shared with you today for my fall project.  Honestly it is kind of hard for me to do fall themed cards as I live in Florida where it is pretty much still summer out with our temperatures.  I hope you will hop along and complete the hop with us if you started with my blog.  You can click the next button below to arrive back at the beginning of the hop with Shirley Merker where she is showcasing a wonderful project.  You can also find the complete blog hop list below if you need to see whom you haven't visited.
