Here is the one of the cards we made for the a stamp a stack this weekend. It was a fun time lots of laughs and everyone made such nice cards. We had so much fun that I am doing it again In November with six new cards! You can sign up for the November 21st stamp a stack by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Classes start at 11AM and I will have only room for 12 stampers. Cost is $25.00 ($20.00 for stamp ten members) You will get a $5.00 coupon good for your order that day, if you pay by November 1st So let me know if you are interested.
The design for this card came from a similar card I got at a swap at convention. I wish I know who made it so I could give her credit. I changed the ribbon but pretty much every else is the same.

Start by creating a mask for the sun set with scrap paper and the 1 ¾ inch circle punch. Punch out circle and lay left over part down to create a mask. Using daubers color in sun. I used More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie ink. Lift mask and soften by using same colors to create hazy effect over sun. Stamp the grass side of Inspired by nature with Always Artichoke ink. Cut cattails with word window punch using Soft Suede card stock. Using a dauber and soft suede ink create dimension by coloring edges of cattails, glue down

Ink Only orange
Paper Old olive, Basic black, Only orange
Accessories Pillow box Sizzix die, dauber Tombow 1, 1/2, 1/4 Inch circle punches as well as the photo corners punch!
Start by cutting out 3 pillow boxes from Only Orange paper. Using only orange ink and a dauber daub edges of the pillow box to highlight. Then glue with Tombow the three pillow box sections together side by side to make the pumpkin body. Also cut large scallop for the bottom. I flipped up the edges of the scallop circle and put Tombow on the bottom sections of Pumpkin. Carefully slide scallop circle from the top of the pumpkin to the bottom and press the glue to the the scallop circle to adhere the bottom to the pumpkin.
To make the face cut three of the smallest triangles from the Photo corner punch from Basic Black and glue together to make the smile. Using a leftover large Photo corner triangle to cut the nose. Then punch out two 1 " circle from basic black. As well as two 1/4 " circles also from basic black. Cut two 1/2 " circles from more mustard and glue all the features to the front of your pumpkin. Cut a old olive one inch strip for the handle and cut a sliver strip at the same time to create the curls. Attach handel with more tombow. Make curls using a thin paint brush to wrap sliver of Old Olive card stock and then attach. Easy peasy with my Bigshot!

I Love the fact that we have coordinating inks for our paper. I remember when I first started stamping I would get so frustrated when purchasing paper and ink that I thought would coordinate only to find they didn't match! Coordinating ink and paper is what brought me to Stampin' UP and keeps me. I am always surprised how when using the ink of the same color creates depth and dimension and was an important part of making these carrots really pop! Thanks for looking Virginia
