The card concept 41

I so love this inspiration image from the card concept #41:

The wood grains and the white pumpkins really caught my eye and the greys too. 

I started with Simon Says Stamp (SSS) wood grain paper, some SSS stitched pumpkins colored with cool grey copics, and SSS clustered leaves die.  Once my pumpkins were colored, I decided to fully coat them with white wink of stella and then some clear irrisitable pico embellisher just to make that sparkle come through a bit more. I am going for a classy and elegant style despite the rustic elements.

 My sentiment is another SSS product from the Sending and Wishing stamp set stamped and silver embossed on vellum. Lastly a few of SSS moonshine sequins for a final touch.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. your classy and elegant pumpkins are perfect - that paper is perfect for the base too!

  2. This card is so visually appealling! I love that it's all neutral and calm (dull), then you have the blingy sequins... they were the perfect touch!
