Pumpkin Swirls 17

Hi Girls! Happy Belated Fall! I am welcoming a change in the weather :) Fall means a NEW planting season here in the desert! I am looking forward to having a patio blossoming with pretty flowers again now that the high temps have passed. In my eyes, the colors in Lauren's, My Time To Create Color Challenge 06, MTCC06, makes for a perfect palette for a Thanksgiving card & tag combo. Combining Lauren's colors with the sketch layout from Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch Challenge C4C3 & Basic Grey's Embossing Challenge, I made this Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Swirls card & tag set. If you would like to see many beautiful creations, I recommend visiting all 3 of these sites! Each site has a DT that offers many ideas of inspiration! I'd love to know how you welcomed the First Full day of Fall? Be Sweet!

This is my Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Swirls set:
I created some background DP using the brayer technique AGAIN! It is so simple, all you do is ink up a brayer, roll it on the embossing folder & run it through your die cutting machine.

To make the pumpkins "POP"off the Whisper White Labels 1 layer, I inked up the 2 pumpkin images from the PTI Fall Elegance set with SU Really Rust ink, stamped them on a separate piece of paper, then using a VERY sharp pair of scissors, I cut them out. I stamped the stem images using SU Chocolate Chip ink on the Whisper White Labels 1 layer, then using Large glue dots, I adhered the pumpkins.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting & made a "petite" version of the Pumpkin Swirls embellie.

You know how I looooove ribbon! This coordinating gift tag simply adds a personal touch to a ANY gift!

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Fall Elegance, Vintage Labels Paper: SU Really Rust, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust Sprinkles: Spellbinders Label 1 dies, Basic Grey green & brown buttons, Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl & Swiss Dots EF, PTI twine, Offray ribbon, JoAnn rust button, generic twine
