Combining Stamps

Hello friends!

Hope this post finds you well. I slowed down my posting in the last few days due to some much needed rest and home projects. It is always good to spend some time reevaluate things. 

Fall is in full swing in my neck of the woods and I couldn't help creating this card.

I started out with stamping the pumpkins. Starting with the middle one, I masked just one pumpkin and stamped the other on both side.

It is always fun to add a little bit of unexpected color. For me, it is the pumpkin on the right. I was impulsive and for some unknown reason, I reached out for Pine Needle Distress Oxide. At first, I thought I ruined it...but now, I kind of like that patch of green in the mix!

My next step is to stamp the upper part of the Autumn Majesty.

I then carefully, ran the entire image through die cut machine with Zig Zag Stackers Die.

I omit part of the sentiment and stamped just "so thankful" (from Thankful For You) in the middle. This is a really fun card to create. Hope you like it, too! Thank you for stopping by!

So pretty. I love fall and fall cards. I even gathered a bunch of leaves pretty yesterday to press. The colors you used are perfect together. The vine stamp looks so nice with the pumpkins. The touch of green with the. Pine needles Distress oxide is perfect. I love all of the greens in the Distress line.
