Did you see the sunrise this morning? It was gorgeous! I just had to get my camera out and take some pictures. I was standing on our front steps, looking across the highway...
My hands got cold so I came inside, then I decided to get my tripod out and try for some more. This time I stood on the other side of the house so I could get our fence in the pictures, too. I thought it made an interesting contrast.
And now on to the stamping! This is the 1st of 5 cards from the October Stamp-A-Stack. More punched pumpkins! They're so darn cute and easy to make! I thought they would make a cute Thanksgiving card.
Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake. The Olive is embossed with the Square Lattice folder and the Crumb Cake is cut with the Top Note die (LOVE it!). The pumpkins are made with the Large Oval, 1" Circle, and 3/4" Oval (page 25 in the Holiday Mini catalog) punches and are sponged with Tangerine Tango ink. I used the 5 Petal Flower punch to make the stems by lining up a thin strip into a petal and punching so it was about half the width of the petal and got the curved shape on top. The greeting is from Seasonal Sentiments (page 15 of the Holiday Mini catalog). I thought I had stamped it in Crumb Cake ink, but when everyone did their cards at the SAS it was much lighter than my sample. I think I must have used Soft Suede ink.
Hope you had a fun Halloween! Chase said he's too old for trick-or-treating (he's 14) so he and John went hunting. They heard a deer, but didn't see anything. I watched the Vikings, made homemade pizza dough and some brownies so we had dinner when the boys got home, and worked on Christmas cards! So much for Halloween! How are you doing on your Christmas cards? We'll be making some Christmas/Winter cards at the next Stamp-A-Stack on November 20th!
