Inspired By #94 ... pumpkins!

 
Our Inspired By #94 photo inspiration is perfect for the season, right?  It was the perfect reason for me to bring out a set I bought last year, after the season had passed!  I've done a bit of masking, and Copic coloring - choosing a few of the colors from those pumpkins above, see if you can spot them!
 


Of course I had to find a way to incorporate a bit of plaid - and that old favorite embossing folder from Darice.  The stamp set is from Stamplorations, Thankful & Blessed from Dee's Artsy Impressions.

 
I'm betting you have a pumpkin, or two, to play along?  stamping a pumpkin = much less messy than carving a pumpkin!  See you in the IB94 gallery!

I love these fun pumpkins! I also love your addition of succulents. My sister in law actually just gave me a little decorative pumpkin with succulents which I thought was so clever. You two are on the same page!

Oh my. This is absolutely gorgeous, Michele. I love the way the plaid strip grounds the pumpkin. The background color and that fabulous embossing are so perfect for these lovely fall images that are colored so beautifully. Such a wonderful composition. Fall is my fav!

I see the colors and even the green dots on those pale apricot pumpkins...I see you've mimicked them perfectly. The addition of that plaid, twine and embossed background finish this great card beautifully.

Pretty pumpkins on that sweet plaid tablecloth! Love the embossed leaves!

Love this design!
My embossing doesn't look this defined or sharp, hum, I wonder what I am doing wrong?

Beautiful, Michele, so perfect to use the pumpkin as a planter! Beautiful coloring too

Jeanne said...

What a wonderful card, Michele! That embossed background is perfect. You get such crisp and defined embossing! Is your cardstock on the thicker side? And your pumpkins are fabulous. How neat to have one that is a planter! I really like how you colored them and even added the detail dots. And that plaid...looks fabulous. Wonderful work, my talented friend!! Crafty hugs!
