Way Down Yonder in the Pumpkin Patch

Please click here for today's SNSDC Challenge post.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the colors and smells and textures of fall so I thought I'd share a card using another new Stampendous image. It's called Picket Pumpkins. It cracks me up how that cat is tormenting that poor pumpkin.

Picket Pumpkins is such a great image that I kept it simple. It's stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. Before I adhered it to the card base I gave it a little extra sparkle by adding Stampendous Stardust Embossing Powder. I also added some texture to the card by gluing some Sage and Leaf Green Color Fragments to the grass line. Color Fragments are flakes of color that you can glue to any surface. No special adhesive is necessary. I used Scotch Quick-Dry. Why? Because it was sitting there. You can sprinkle Color Fragments into embossing powders while it is still hot for an amazing Encrusted Jewel look. You can also crush the fragments into smaller particles. It's easy, just roll some between your fingers. Color Fragments are available in so many great colors. You can see them all here.

Have you checked out this month's challenge over at Stampendous? It's all about the cool effects you can create with heat embossing. I'll be sharing cards throughtout the month that are made with a bunch of different embossing techniques so please stop back.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a fantastic weekend!
