Halloween Card ~ Pumpkin Patch

Halloween is fast approaching.
I created a little Halloween scene to share.
I used a mix of cute My Creative Time goodies then 
gave my pumpkins some Peachy Keen character.




Eek! The design paper is really a combo of dark and light orange 
but I just couldn't get the true colors to photograph. 
The darker orange in the design paper is really just a 
tiny bit paler than the orange I used for the pumpkins.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Clouds cut using the Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies from My Creative Time.
*Happy cut using the Boughs of Holly set from My Creative Time.
*Halloween from the Happy Thoughts set from My Creative Time.
*Fence cut using the Loyal Friends set from My Creative Time.
*Pumpkins and moon cut using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from My Creative Time.
*Faces from the Happy Lashes Face Assortment set from Peachy Keen Stamps.
*Design paper from the 6x6 Eek-a-BOO Stack from DCWV.

May your day always be filled with love.

Halloween Card ~ Just Sayin'

Oh my gosh I have to admit I am ADDICTED to electricity!
I need my heat, I need my lights and shhh don't tell I even need my TV. lol.
I had big plans to craft this weekend since some of my energy is coming back.
The head and chest cold I have been living with is persistent to say the least.
I still do not have my voice back. Wednesday it will be 2 weeks.

Anywho today I did get to create one of the cards 
I had planned on doing this weekend.
I used goodies and the inspiration photo from one of 
my FAVORITE stamp and die companies, My Creative Time.
I started by adding spider web washi tape to a strip of light gray cardstock.
To create my pumpkins I die cut two circles in the web strip 
then backed the circles with orange corrugated paper.
I topped them off with a stem and a leaf.
My sweet pumpkins have a little message for you.
Don't look now but a little spider snuck in there, too.
I cut him with with a circle die then gave him some legs.




*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Pumpkins & spider cut using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from My Creative Time.
*Leaves and stem cut using the Love To Learn set from My Creative Time.
*Speech Bubbles cut using the Fun Speech Bubbles set from My Creative Time.
*Sentiment from the Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set from My Creative Time.
*Spider web washi tape from Recollections.

May your day always be filled with love.
