Come see how I made this pumpkins and sunflowers card.

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Pumpkins and Ivy, Baskets, Mixable Flower Stack, Grass and the sentiment is from the Splatter Leaves set.

The Sentiment Layer and Grass

  • Cut the rectangle X stitched layer using white cardstock and the background layer using orange cardstock.
  • Insert the rectangle layer and sentiment stamp in the MISTI, apply Shady Lane ink to the stamp and then stamp the sentiment.
  • Attach the white layer to the orange layer using strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the orange and white layer to the card base using ATG adhesive. 
  • Use green cardstock and cut a partial rectangle X stitched layer and then  use that piece to cut the grass layer.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass and attach it to the white sentiment layer.

Come see how I made this fall pumpkins and sunflowers card.

The Basket, Pumpkins and Sunflowers

  • Use woodgrain cardstock to cut the basket and apply Antique Linen ink using the direct pad to paper technique.
  • Attach the cross section to the basket using glossy accents.
  • Cut the pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers using yellow cardstock and the ivy using green cardstock.
  • Color the gourds using Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint ink and attach them to the back of the basket using double stick tape and glossy accents..
  • Apply Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge ink to the yellow pumpkins using mini applicators.
  • Color the stems of the pumpkins with a brown marker.
  • Use a mini applicator and Wild Honey ink to color the the sunflower petals and then form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
  • Punch out multiple 1/8″ brown circles, form them with a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the flower centers using glossy accents.

Note:  I really love to apply color to die cut images using Distress Inks and mini applicators.  Starting with yellow cardstock for the pumpkins and flowers allows me to add color and shading but still allows the yellow to shine through as a highlight.

Assemble the Pumpkins and Sunflowers Scene

  • Apply a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the basket, round the basket slightly with your fingers and tuck it behind the grass and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck the pumpkins in behind the grass and attach to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach the ivy leaves and tendrils to the card base using glossy accent.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the sunflowers and attach them to the ivy and tendrils on the card base.
  • Tuck several more pieces of tendrils in and around the pumpkins and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this autumn pumpkins and sunflowers card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my pumpkins and sunflowers card. I love the basket and pumpkin die and will be using them lots more on my fall projects.  If you are unfamiliar with the Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty fan club, I hope you will hop over and check it out.  I attribute everything I know about paper crafting to this wonderful online community.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great Saturday.
