TGIFC130 - Theme Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's TGIF Challenge, and our theme challenge this week is Sweater Weather. I love autumn. It's my favorite season, maybe because my birthday is in September? I just love all the beautiful color, the opportunity to put on some cozy sweaters and to drink pumpkin lattes.

I decided this was a great project to play with the Pick a Pumpkin Stamp Set and Patterned Pumpkins Dies. The background is a piece of watercolor paper that I spritzed with Pool Party ink and then dripped on Soft Sky ink using an Aqua Painter. I used So Saffron to cut the sprigs from, and Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla for the pumpkins and curls. I used the orange watercolor patterned paper from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies to ground the shapes with.

For the greeting, I used the Banners For You Stamp Set and the Bunch of Banners Dies to create the greeting. It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I just realized that I didn't add any embellishments! I think if I was going to add anything else, it might be a couple of sequins or enamel shapes. But I also like it just like this.

Well, that is all for me today. But, I hope you'll join us over at the TGIF Challenges blog this week and share your creation inspired by our theme.

I had the idea to make some ornaments using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes in the diorama style. I used both the Hearts Come Home Bundle and the Night in Bethlehem Bundle.

Here is my card for this week. I just love the Glamper Greetings Stamp Set. It has images to dress up the camper for several different seasons and occasions. I set my camper in an autumn scene, and followed the color scheme of the pretty Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I stamped the images in Black Stazon ink, and then used a blender pen to add ink and blur the solid stamped images.
