Hi! Today I am excited to playing along in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights! I haven’t participated in quite a while – so am thankful to have this opportunity to participate this month.
Our theme is Thank You. I chose to use the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalog.
Have you seen or tried the Stampin’ Blends and Alcohol technique? That is what I used to create my background for this card. Scribble your Stampin’ Blends on a piece of Vellum Cardstock. Then use a Water Painter filled with 91% or higher rubbing alcohol to drip, pounce or swirl through the ink to move and blend it. You will need to let air dry completely – overnight would be best – before using.
For this card, I used the Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Blends.
Once it has dried, I stamped the leaves and sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso ink.
The pumpkins are stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze card stock and die cut. The leaves are die cut from Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler card stock.
The vellum is mounted on a piece of Basic White card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. The base of the card is Early Espresso and measures 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded.
If you like my card, I’d appreciate your vote. If I make the Top 10, I’ll be able to participate in a blog hop with the other winners later this month. To vote, simply head over here and click on the heart in the upper corner for my card.

Don’t forget, we are in the final month of Sale-A-Bration – so a $50 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. This offer ends on Sept 30 – so don’t wait!
