Pumpkin Spice Cards

With fall finally here, I had to get out my autumn inspired stamps from Impression Obsession challenge to participate in their latest challenge, Pumpkin Spice, either pumpkins or the coffee.  I knew right away the sentiment I wanted to put inside, this one says it perfectly.  I stamped it on cardstock the color of nutmeg, one of the spices I associate with pumpkin goodies and fall.

I picked a lovely cornucopia stamp and placed it in my Stamping Platform.  The stamp is quite intricate, and I had a feeling it would take more than one try to get an even outline.

First stamping, needs a bit more ink here and there.

I re-inked the pad and stamped again.  Better, the image is darker and more clear.

In case you’d like to make this card, the stamps I used are the words from the set So Very Thankful on the left, and Cornucopia on the right.

When I had a clear image, I colored it with inks and a blender pen.  I wish the colors were brighter, but it is OK.

On the nutmeg color paper card, I glued a ribbon of leaves as an anchor.

The cornucopia is mounted on deep burgundy framing and glued on top.

To add a bit more interest and flair, I used a bit of my homemade paper and two leaf stickers as a corner accent.  On the bottom right, I glued a little acorn.

  1. I like the water color you did on the card. I haven’t had my stamps out in a year. In fact; I started Christmas 2018 cards in Jan of 2018; and never finished; so they sit in the drawer. Maybe one cold winter day……. You do such beautiful work.

    Is this your homemade paper? Looks very nice in this card, like a little cotton ball harvest. Lucky friends who get your cards. j

    Nice card..wonderful time of the year! I just finished On Rue Tatin. Really enjoyed it. Fun to see the “grass isn’t always greener on the other side!” Not sure I’d give up living in the USA as hard as it is right now!

    What a great card! I need to clear some space in my life for stamping, or get rid of all my stamping stuff! =)
