My Pumpkin Patch

Hello! Here's the card I had intended to post yesterday -- it just didn't happen. My busy morning turned into a busier afternoon, followed by a busy evening. I won't bore you with details, but I'll just say I was a tired Mommy last night!! :)

This is the last set I have to preview for tonight's release! It's called Sugarplums Halloween, and it is SO darn cute! I hope you had a chance to visit the ATS Blog yesterday to see what my DT pals came up with!! There are so many great images in this set -- Christine really outdid herself on this one! There's a witchy Olivia, a devilish Christopher, pumpkins, cat, bat, spider, and so many accessories and sentiments! When I saw this sentiment, I immediately thought of making a card from my own little "pumpkin patch." So, here are my four kids, wishing everyone a Happy Halloween! :) The eyes, noses, mouths, vines, and leaves are all separate images -- you can "build-a-pumpkin" so easily! I just love the little sign, too -- there are quite a few phrases to put on it.

This card measures 6.25" x 3.25". It will fit in a business size envelope. I did all my coloring with Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS). There are quite a few different OMS out there, but I use Turpenoid (purchased at Michaels). I added some grass from Sugarplums Scenery Set, and I sponged around the pumpkins with Bashful Blue and Old Olive ink. I cut out a couple leaves and popped them up on rolled up glue dots. I used a mini screw brad on the sign, and I also popped it up on rolled glue dots. I cut a fish tail in the sentiment panel for a little interest and backed it with a Prima flower. The image panel and sentiment panel are on dimensionals.

Be sure to stop by the ATS Blog before noon EST today -- you can leave a comment on any of the preview posts for a chance to win the new sets! The Release Party is from 8-10 pm EST tonight on the ATS Message Board -- I hope to see you there! All the new sets will be available at 10:00 pm EST tonight!

That's all for me today! Thanks so much for visiting -- I'm always glad when you stop by! Have a great day! :)
