Sweet Lil' Pumpy Kin

Evening All!

Sorry for the late post today! I spent the day with my Grandma and didn't get to do too much in the store, and left before I had a chance to get my pictures uploaded for the challenge and the blog post. My Grandma has breast cancer so I try and spend time with her when I can because you just never know.

I mentioned the other day that this week our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge is also being sponsored by Shape EZ by TLC. These awesome templates are available on the Whimsy Store Website. My Card features one of the new release templates called Pumpy Kin.

I chose to do my card with the Flap because I wanted to hide a little treat inside :)
This template is awesome because it also comes with a version without the flap so you can choose which to use.

My little character on the front is C.C. Designs - Punkin Beatrice. I colored everything except her hair with my spectrum noir alcohol ink markers. Her hair I colored with my prismacolor pencils. I stamped her in momento tuxedo black ink which is awesome for using with alcohol ink markers like spectrum noir and copics. I use the Crafter's  Companion Ultra Smooth White Cardstock made for use with alcohol ink markers because my markers don't bleed quite as bad.

Here is a close up of my little Punkin Beatrice...

I cut her out and popped her with dimensionals, her feet are popped up a second time.

The little crow is a new C.C. Designs Cutters Die called Crow. This little guy I found that when I cute him out with black I had the extra beak piece in black so I popped it upside down with a dimensional as a little wing :)  I like to sponge the edges of my black bodies with a light touch of whisper white ink just to give them some dimension. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things - Die-Namics Primitive Pumpkins Die & Matching Stamp Set.

Here is the inside of my Pumpy Kin Card...

I had purchased this Pumpkin Latte Recipe stamp of Ebay a long time ago because one of my favorite things to do is scrap family recipes. There was no brand name or anything so I am not sure who it is by. I stamped it on very vanilla with early espresso ink and colored the little cups and pumpkins with spectrum noirs. I then just funky cut around it, distressed the edges and sponged them. The gorgeous papers that I used on my pumpkin card are all from the new Bo Bunny Apple Cider 6x6 Paper Pack, except for the green checker gingham on the leaves.

Here is a close up of my Pumpkin Latte Recipe... sounds yummy! Haven't tried it yet but want too!

Be sure to come play along in our challenge this week! The theme is super fun... All About Autumn and not only may you be the winner of our gift voucher to the Loves Rubberstamps Store... Shape EZ is giving a choice of TWO FREE TEMPLATES of choice to the winner as well! You could get this awesome Pumpy Kin Template if you choose!!

** All of the products in BOLD but without the links... these have all arrived and will be listed in the store shortly... once they are in I will post the links in ***

Have a great night all!
Happy Stampin!
