Brutus Monroe Harvest Inspiration

Hello again, my dear blog friends.  Words will never express to you how much I appreciate your visits and comments.  I've been having fun creating cards with the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Boxes.  I challenge myself to use as little of my own "stuff" as possible, and to really use ALL the products in the Inspiration Boxes to showcase everything.  I also try to keep my cards fairly simple so that all crafters can realize their potential.  Sometimes inspiration comes in a BOX.  You just never know.
This card started with a black cardstock base.  Each Inspiration Box has cardstock included in it, and that's really helpful.  First, I attached a piece of the glimmery orange paper from the Inspiration Box, and then used a piece of the creamy yellowish ivory cardstock from the Inspiration Box to stencil a background.  I stenciled my background using various yellows and oranges of Tim Holtz Oxide Inks.  Next, I machine stitched that piece to the other papers.  I added another strip of the glimmery orange paper across the middle, and placed pieces of woodgrain washi tape here and there.
I stamped the cute scarecrow, pumpkin, and Pumpkin Patch sign using the darling new Harvest Stamp Set found inside the Harvest Inspiration Box.  I colored my images with Copics, and used the coordinating Harvest Dies to cut out the images.  I used some 3-D Foam Tape to give my scarecrow some extra dimension.  This Inspiration Box does NOT include a packet of sequins, so I used a few of the sequins from some of my older Inspiration Boxes.  I think that covers it; but feel free to ask any questions if I forgot something.  I really appreciate your visit today.


I'm playing along in these FUN challenges:
