I'm stopping by today to share the Project I've made for the New Paper Sweeties Inspiration #23 September 2014 ~ Pretty Pumpkins Challenge hosted over on the Paper Sweeties Blog!!
Can you even believe that Fall is just here!!?? I'm ready just because its my FAVORITE time of the year!! =) I was SO Inspired by the Beautiful Pumpkins in this Inspiration Photo!! Just look at them~insert BIG SMILE!! I decided it would be FUN to create a Gift Tag for a Gift and I found the Sweetest little Burlap Bags for my base!! I die cut a couple of Layered PTI Dies for my Base and on the Smallest one I wanted to create a background for my Tag Design!! I Stamped the Stars Border Stamp from the New PS Be Happy Stamp Set with Versa Mark and then I heat Embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder!! I then took my Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade and sponged over the entire Tag making sure they blended in the middle for a FUN sunset look!! I then Sprayed over it using some Prima Blooms Pearl White Spray and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I wanted to make a Trio of Pumpkins for the Center of the Tag so I die cut 3 Circles and 4 Spirals using the PS Be Happy Sweet Cuts and Party Time Sweet Cuts Die Sets!! I wanted my Pumpkins to Sparkle like the ones in the Photo so I coated my Circle Die Cuts with Versa-Mark Ink and then covered them with some Ranger Sticky Stuff Powder!! After Heat Embossing I covered them with some Rock Candy Distress Glitter and then I took the Coordinating PS Be Happy Stamp Set and stamped the Circle outline using some Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink!! I added some Distress Ink to the Edges and cut some Stems from some Kraft Cardstock and glued them in place!! I stamped the Spiral Images from the PS Party Time Stamp Set using some Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and Sprayed them with some water for a wicking effect!! I then added some Webster's Pages Resin Flowers that I painted with Martha Stewart Glossy Acrylic Paint to go with my color scheme!! EEEKKKK I LOVE how these Pumpkins turned out!! =)
I added the to the Tag using Foam Tape!! I die cut and stamped the Banner using the PS Hello Friend Stamp Set and the PS Be Happy Sweet Cuts Die Set!! I wanted the Sentiment to be BOLD so I decided to stamp the Sentiment from the New PS You Are Fab Stamp Set in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then I added some Spun Sugar and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks too to tie it all together with the rest of the Tag!!
What do you think!!?? Pretty Sweet right!!?? =) I AGREE!!
