Here's today's pumpkin card:
Once the coffee spritz was completely dry on Stampendous Mixed Media White Paper, I pasted it with the Dreamweaver LL515 Pumpkins in Metallic Gold. After removing the tape and stencil, I sprinkled Dreamweaver FX mica powders randomly over the pasted image. Using a Milwaukee heat tool, I heated the surface of the pasted image until it bubbled and then quickly moved to another area of the image. This technique is called Molten Magic and it is quite magical. I allowed it to cool and then used a Swiffer cloth to wipe away any stray mica powders.
Layering the card elements came next. I went into my Dreamweaver stash drawer and found the perfect fall background paper to layer behind the pumpkins. TIP: Creating seasonal backgrounds in quantity comes in handy at times like this! The next two layers of card stock (A Muse) coordinated beautifully with the pumpkins. I did happen to have a Spellbinders Celebra'tions Pierced Rectangles die templates by Richard Garay that worked great for my two stitched layers and my two diecut layers. Ribbon (May Arts) was added around one of the layers 'cuz I just love what ribbon can do to a card!!
All that was left was to add a sentiment! I didn't want to interfere with the pumpkins, so a small punched tag (McGill) and sentiment seemed to work in the upper right corner. I partially stenciled the Dreamweaver Four Seasons Stencil word FALL with Stampendous/Dreamweaver Copper Metallic Paste and a Palette Knife onto my stash background paper.
Hope you enjoyed my card today! I'd love your comment before hopping to the next designer's blog. Thanks for stopping by! I wanna go bake an apple pie now!
