Pumpkin Kisses

Yah, it's October and I am Guest Designer for the Four Seasons Challenge!!!
The inspiration board is amazing and it would be so easy to make many many cards with this board as the jumping off point:
I made a total of 3 cards, using stencils from A Colorful Life Designs and the image from Penny Black Wagonful with the coordinating die for the focal point. For all 3:
1) I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock for the base. This has a slight cream color cast.
3) The images were watercolored with The Stamp Market's 24 Pan Color Crush Watercolor Palette.
4) The sentiments are all from Impression Obsession's Pumpkin Kisses stamp set - retired.
Stencil used for this cutie was Random Boxes ink blended with Ranger's Ink Distress Oxide Antique Linen and Vintage Photo:
The enamel dots come from Altenew.
I love to leave lots of white space in my cards.
For this card, below, with my favorite sentiment, I used the Tic Tac Toe Mask Stencil with Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina.
Which is your favorite? I love them all. Thank you to the Four Seasons Challenge for having me as Guest Designer and the amazing inspiration board for October! Come play along....Use AnitaFan10 for 10% off your entire order at A Colorful Life Designs (excluding bundles)!

  4. Three beautiful variations using the same stamp. You've colored the images up so nicely and love the stenciling. My favorite has to be the one with turquoise stenciling because I absolutely LOVE that quote! So nice to have you join us as a guest designer at Four Seasons!

  5. I'm glad we live in a world with October, too. These are beautiful cards. Your coloring is fabulous. I love the PB wagon. Fabulous rectangle dies on all of your cards. I just ordered a set of Spellbinder's fluted edges and I can't wait to get them. I'd like to have ALL of these dies that you used. Wants/Needs.........sigh! Thanks for being our guest designer at The Four Seasons Challenge.
