We have a color inspiration challenge for this week at The Kraft Journal! I LOVE color inspiration challenges, how about you??
I began with a base of Brown Kraft Cardstock which I layered onto a pumpkin shaped card template from The Cutting Cafe and hand cut. Next I cut the decorative layers for the top of the pumpkins using various patterned papers and Vintage Dictionary Pages. After adhering the decorative layers, I cut burlap stems for the pumpkins using Burlap Tags.
To create the leaf nosegay, I added glittered leaves I hand cut, Tiny Wooden Green Clothespins and Bright Green Hemp Cording. Last, I added a glittered pumpkin sticker and gave him a sweet sentiment stamped onto a Grungy Prim Tag using the Too Cute To Spook stamp set from Paper Sweeties and then secured on a Memo Pin.

I started the weekend off a little early by having my sweet friend, Audrey, over for coffee today! We visited, chit chatted, giggled and caught up! Audrey is just the sweetest gal ever and uber talented too ... look at this happy little fella she made just for me! She remembered that I don't decorate very much with orange pumpkins and really like the white ones ... so she made this little sweetie especially for me -- he's so adorable and yummy -- like a smiling autumn marshmallow! I added him to an antique scale that I have a berry garland and artichokes in ... he looks like he was made to live here!
Thank you, Miss Audrey! I enjoyed our visit today so very much!
We have a sketch challenge this week at The Kraft Journal ... I LOVE sketch challenges!!
For today's project, I rotated the sketch on it's side for my design! I began with a base of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock onto which I layered a piece of Chalkboard Stock Paper. Next I added a piece of patterned paper from the Kraft & Black Cardstock Pad in Damask and then added a cute little Halloween digital printed image from Betty's Etsy shop.
I then tied several lengths of Brights Hemp Cording around the base of the card and tied it into a bow. I added a sweet little Metallic Lock & Key tied on with Black Baker's Twine. I created my sentiment pennant by first cutting a scalloped circle from Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock, then cutting a circle from Buff Ivory Cardstock and then stamping a sentiment from the Too Cute To Spook stamp set onto the pennant. Last, I added two flag tails which I created by adding Damask Washi Tape to two pieces of scrap Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and adhering onto the circle base.
