Warm Autumn Wishes

If you're like me, you must have that one stamp set for each season that you tend to use a lot.  For me, that's this pumpkin set from Papertrey Ink.  I love it, and I use it quite a bit this time of year.  I used some October Afternoon patterned papers, an October Afternoon cute little "pumpkin" journalling card and part of another 7 Gypsies journalling card as my base.  I added some Brown Plaid Ribbon and wrapped Natural Burlap String around my card for added texture.
I stamped two of the pumpkins in this stamp set, and cut them out with the coordinating die-cut.  The smaller one is raised up with 3-D tape.  The sentiment is also from this stamp set and is stamped in Black Soot, and I inked everything with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Marmalade, Green Paint, and Brick Red.  A bit of machine stitching was the final touch.
I'm playing along in these challenges, and I thank you for visiting!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #429 - Sponsored by Newton's Nook - I sure enjoyed this color inspiration, and loved stamping the pumpkins.  I also made sure to add the brown ribbon!
