Pretty Pumpkins - So Thankful

Pretty Pumpkins - So Thankful

This week I am stamping with the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp Set and Detailed Pumpkin Dies again.  This time I am using the Beauty of the Earth patterned paper to create my background, and then adding stamped and die-cut images and sentiments to build my focal point.  I choose my colors for this project straight from the DSP package.  It makes it simple to create, just look at the coordinating colors for the package and you are ready to craft!

I use a Blender Pen Technique to color my stamped pumpkin and stamped leaves to blend the ink after stamping.  So I stamped on the Basic White cardstock and then used the Blender Pen to spread or blend the ink into the white sections of the image.  It gives it a great color on color image, plus it allows you to have any color marker by using the Blender Pen.  Plus, you can color outside of the lines, since you will be die-cutting the images after.

Here is the list of supplies I used and then the step-by-step instructions to complete the card.

Happy Stamping,
