Teal Pumpkin Card Project

I am so pleased to be posting today for the first time as part of the Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Design Team! I certainly have been having fun stamping and coloring and working on cards with these stamps!

You may have heard of the Teal Pumpkin project, in which people set their teal pumpkin on the front step to show trick or treaters they have some non-food items for kids with severe allergies.  I think they are just gorgeous to look at, as well as nice for the kids, so I made it into a card.

(Click on images to enlarge.)

I found the easiest way to get that lovely teal color I was looking for was to stamp and emboss the Tall Stamptangle pumpkin with gold onto light blue cardstock, fussy cut, and then sponge on Peacock Feathers Distress ink.  It was so simple to do but such a lovely result!  The smaller Stamptangle pumpkin was stamped on ivory card and sponged with Tea Dye distress ink.


I also used the same colors of ink to sponge on my patterned papers and sentiment pieces to pull everything together.  I decided to cut my sentiment out to better fit my card.

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Tall Stamptangle Pumpkin, Medium Stamptangle Pumpkin, Just a Note sentiment, Versamark ink and Recollections Gold detail embossing powder, Versafine Olympia Green ink (for sentiment), Distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Tea Dye, Blue and Ivory cardstock from my stash, K&Co Tim Coffey Fall matstack.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I am so thrilled that you took the time to visit!

(P.S. Don't forget about JFF Stamps October Monthly Challenge, there is a gift certificate up for grabs!)
