Sweet 'n Sassy - Sweet Peek Day #5 - Autumn Bounty

Welcome to Sweet Peek Day #5 of  the Sweet 'n Sassy August 16th release!  Korin's stamps this month are all about the coming fall season -  can you smell the crisp fallen leaves and feel the thrill of finding that perfect pumpkin in the patch?!

I actually used the stamp from Korin's Sweet Peek poster - but with a different sentiment from the set. (there are a whopping 15 words/sentiments and a beautiful potted fall bouquet included for all your fall/Thanksgiving card making needs!)

I paper pieced all the parts of this wonderful image -  the two pumpkins, and all the leaves.  I love how you can bring texture to an image using figured patterned papers!  And if you're not big on coloring - this is a great way to get it done!  Here I used papers with dots and grid patterns.   

First I stamped the image on a white panel.  I colored the pumpkin stems and scrollies with brown Copics.  Then I stamped the different pumpkins and leaves on scraps of my patterend papers, cutting out each piece and adhering it over the white stamped image with a glue pen.  I sponged the edges and adhered the panel inside an embossed rectangle Nestability with foam tape. 

I kept the card clean and simple to accent the wonderful pumpkin patch!  I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base and adhered gold rhinestones on either side.

Please hop on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog to find  links to fellow DT members, Neva and Cindy who are also sweet peeking this lovely set today!

I'll be back tomorrow with another Sweet Peek so I hope you'll stop by!
