Pretty Pretty Pumpkins

Hey all,  Jacquie here today with a card that was inspired by a beautiful floral arrangement I saw while I was out shopping recently.

The floral arrangement was of some really lovely flowers, using a pumpkin as it's vase.  I have had this Sunny Studio Pretty Pumpkin set for awhile now and knew they were going to serve as my vase. 

I inked up the 3 layered pumpkins using the Warm and Cozy Mini Ink Cube set from Altenew.  I also inked up the pumpkin leaves using a few colors from the Tropical Forest Mini Ink Cube Set from Altenew.  If you have not tried Altenew inks before, you need to...they are totally my favorite for layering!

I used some small floral images from several different sets.  The small roses are from the new WPlus9 Rose Builder set and the other florals are from WPlus9 Summer Florals 2.  I used more layering inks from Altnew - Sea Shore Mini Inks,  Pocketful of Sunshine Mini Inks and the most fabulous pink set - Rose Petal Mini Ink.

I spent a little time figuring out my floral arrangement and then took a photo of it with my cell phone (so I could glue it down the way I liked it!)  I used my scoreboard to score some lines on bottom of the card - to give my pumpkins a base and to not look like they are floating on a white card.   Once I glued them down, using Scotch foam tape and Tombow mono adhesive, I stamped a greeting from Sunny Studios pretty companion set, Autumn Greetings.  I cut out my card with a Stitched Rectangle die and layered it on to some coordinating cardstock - and finished it off with some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hope you enjoyed this combination of stamp sets and was a lot of fun!!

Until next week...
