hello...pumpkin

Hello!!   Thought I would pop in with a simple little card that I made for the current AAA Card challenge:  Autumn Colors, as well as the current a2z Scrapbooking challenge (use 2 Hero Arts products).   A sweet bloggy friend, Barb, is a member of the a2z design team and so I thought I would finally play along with one of their challenges.

 

I love pumpkins and so when I saw the inspiration photo for the AAA Card challenge I just had to get out my "oldie, but goodie" Hero Arts Bold Pumpkin wood mount stamp (my first Hero Arts product used) and do some paper piecing.  I stamped the pumpkin on some Crate Paper Farmhouse patterned paper three time and then trimmed out the full pumpkin and two partials.  The stem was also stamped on patterned paper and trimmed out.  Then I layered everything up using foam dimensionals.   The pumpkin was stamped again on some off white cardstock, a strip of patterned paper was adhered and then the paper piece pumpkin added.  I finished the strip off by adding the sentiment (from the Hero Arts set Congrats - another oldie and my second Hero Arts product used). 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & rustic white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Memento; paper: Crate Paper Farmhouse
