Holiday Card Series #2 (Lawnscaping Challenge #93 Fall & Pumpkins)

Welcome back!  Today my card is pulling double duty!  The newest challenge for Lawnscaping is up!  It is all about Fall/or Pumpkin themed projects.  This is also Card #2 in my Holiday Card Series for 2014.  Before I get down to details, I must give a shout out to our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp!  For the winner of this challenge - they will get a $25 dollar gift certificate to spend how ever you'd like in their online store!  

So I used some of my favorites for this card!  I used the So Thankful set along with the matching dies as well as the pumpkin from Spooktacular.  I stamped the So Thankful pumpkins on pattern papers from from the Sweater Weather 6x6 pad( LOVE THIS SO MUCH) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and I stamped the pumpkin from Spooktacular with the same ink, but removed the ink from the eyes and mouth, and stamped it down on to white card stock.  I added some dimension with a W-3 Copic Markers as well as a C1 Copic Marker to give the look of a white pumpkin.  Once all of my pumpkins were stamped and die cut out, I die cut my framed pieces from the same 6x6 pad, as well as some colored card stock.  I also die cut the largest leaf from the Stitched Leaves die set from Lawn Fawn as well as the Thanks from the Thanks die also from Lawn Fawn, and used some Wood grain Card stock from SSS.  I wanted to emboss my Thanks die cut, so I applied some Versa Mark ink and sprinkled on on Pewter Embossing Powder, and heat to set. I assembled all of my pieces to my card, and once I was finished, I added some Lawn Trimmings to my leaf as well as some Wink of Stella to my pumpkins.  To see how I put it all together - my video is below!  Thanks so much for watching and reading, and I will be back for Card #3 of my Holiday Card Series soon!!  Have a great week!
