Just A Girl and Her Pumpkin

Hello friends!  Wow, I think Fall has begun over my way as the air has changed with cooler temperatures and I absolutely LOVE it! 🙂  Although I’ve been busy crafting away in my room, I like to get outdoors for a few breaks to walk around and see signs of the leave starting to change over.

Today, I am over at the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration blog to share my card with you using one of the really adorable images from this month’s release called “A Girl and Her Pumpkin” digital stamp by Crissy Armstrong:


Isn’t she adorable?!  I really enjoyed coloring her up with my Copic markers.  As I was coloring, it actually reminded me of going to a near-by apple orchid with my children as they were growing up.  I would take photos of them with all of the pumpkins surrounding them as they would pick out which one they wanted to carve for Halloween.  (My oldest was not a fan of “pumpkin guts” and so we always ended up doing that part for him! LOL!)  But it must have made an impression with them because they still enjoy going as adults now!   Besides, what’s better than apple cider donuts and freshly picked apples?!  YUM!

So, after the reminiscing of memories, I cut her out with the WS Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles along with the card front base and attached to a white A2 sized top folding card base.  For the sentiment, I took a piece of vellum and heat embossed a greeting from the WS Painted Sayings stamp set and I also took some of the splatter images from the same set and stamped them randomly in the background with white ink.

Before attaching the image panels onto the card, I’ve added some gold ink around the edges, attached some leaves behind it and popped it up with foam tape.  The piece of vellum was hand cut into a banner and folded around card base and attached with glue behind the letters to hide it.  I then put some burlap ribbon around the card front base as well as the image panel, vellum banner and gold sequins filled with gold Stickles.


Here’s a closer view of the image and how she’s colored.  You can also better see the gold inked edges.  And of course, the photo didn’t pick it up, but I took some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen to go over the pumpkin with.

I’ve also used a cloud stencil to lightly sponge in a nice Fall sky behind her.

I think she would look so cute surrounded by a field of pumpkins…so there’s an idea!  Maybe I’ll work on that for next time!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  I appreciate you taking the time!  See you soon!

  10. What a beautiful girl hugging her pumpkin – yes I think she would look cute in a field of pumpkins. All of the pumpkin patch farms are open here with the corn maze etc. Great job.
