Fall Fest 1

Over the weekend I spoke with my sister who happened to be exhausted after a day of pumpkin picking with her grandchildren. Annie is a very "hands on" grandmother and I love to hear her stories about my great nieces.

So, I have to say, not only was I inspired by Debbie Carriere's latest Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, I was inspired by my sister's story to create this card for the kids for Halloween. I really do enjoy sending hand made cards to all who are special to me and this one will be on its way very soon.


I really like this color combination. The Sahara Sand card base and accent layers gives a little bit of originality to the traditional Halloween orange and black.

With Stampin' Up!'s "Fall Fest" stamp set and matching "Fun Fall" framelits, I stamped and cropped the pumpkins in no time at all. "Motley Monsters" Designer Series Paper was my color inspiration.

Nothing makes your hand made card more of a "gift" than a matching lined envelope. The envelope liner is cropped with the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies, perfectly sized for the standard A-2 card.

A little Linen Thread and a Basic Black Candy Dot are just enough embellishment to balance the design.

So, stamp a few pumpkins and create something wonderful.
