Harvest Pumpkins

Growing up, I had a real love/hate relationship with fall.  It meant back-to-school time, which I was really conflicted about (I mean, on one hand, it's SCHOOL, and on the other, I lived in a very small town - in a valley that was pretty sprawled out - so it meant seeing my friends).  In particular, I wasn't a fan of the colors.  Orange, mustard, and orange-y reds just weren't, and still aren't, my favorite shades, so having them in your face for all the autumn decor was a bit much.  I've become a bit more open to using them, but still...

Soft, shabby, tones take over on this subtle autumn card.  Created using the Fun Stampers Journey Host Exclusive stamp set All Year Long.

With that in mind, I chose to use some "non-traditional" autumn colors in today's card.  I stamped the pumpkins in Peaches & Cream, Fresh Sage, and Tin Pail, before fussy cutting them out.  They were layered over an embossed Tin Pail panel, and a Fresh Sage strip, that was heat embossed with my sentiment.  I wanted to add an additional detail of twine, so I used my craft knife to make two small slits on either side of the sentiment.  That gave me the ability to thread the twine through and underneath.

I actually love the resulting card.  It's "fall" without the colors I'm still not sure of.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
