Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Stitched Pumpkin

Designed 2 Delight's Free digi image this week is a Stitched Pumpkin, Mouse, and Fall Border.  There is a lot in this week's images and so much you can do with it.  I chose to use the Stitched Pumpkin to make a Fall card.  The technique I used was paper piecing with a little twist.  The paper for the pumpkin and the fall border are from a CTMH paper pack that I have had for a while.  The leaves with the pumpkin on white paper are colored in with a sponge dauber using CTMH Sunflower ink all over, then CTMH Golden Ember and Autumn Terracotta blended in with a Q-tip near the outside of the leaves.  Finally, CTMH Chocolate ink was blended in at the very edge of the leaves with a Q-tip.  I tried something different with the Fall Border.  It is printed on the same b&t paper used to paper piece the pumpkin, then using the same ink pads above, I used my Tombow Blending Pen to color them in.  To complete the images, I used different shapes and colors buttons from a CTMH button pack.  The pumpkin image is layered on paper from a Best Occasions Scrap Pack, the die cuts and sentiment are from the same pack.  CTMH waxy flax was used to finish it all off with some beads I had.

  1. You have been one busy lady! Such a precious card. Love that fall feeling you get just from looking at it. Really like the twine & other fine elements you used.
