It's the 25th, which means it's time (already!) for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!
This month was a photo inspiration with a very fall feel to it. 2 things inspired me in the photo: patterned pumpkins, and the mention (in the photo caption) of felt leaves.
First, my card... I have seen these pumpkins everywhere, created using an oval punch. Had to try one out...
To appeal to my shabby self, I ran it through a Cuttlebug folder and dry brushed some white paint on there - plus I used a scallop oval instead of just a plain one.
See how well the Holly Jolly die works to make pumpkin leaves?
Here is the whole card:
I can't get enough of stamping my own backgrounds using Iconic Images. For this card, I used this week's inspiration at Case Study, and chose to follow the basic layout of Niki's card.
Also, I had decided back at the start of September I wanted to create a small wreath using the Leaf Prints dies and various colours of felt. Audrey is so generous in organizing felt shares during release time each month, so in September, I joined in, and ordered some lucious fall colours for my leaves.
Here is the result:
SUPER easy, fairly quick, and lots of leaves left over for future projects. I might save them to use on my Thanksgiving goodies next year (since we celebrated a few weeks ago here in Canada). Here is a close up of the leaves:
Thanks for looking, and enjoy the rest of your hop!
