Pumpkins, and Plaids Two Ways

 Two of the things in autumn that I can never get enough of are pumpkins and plaids. They are life!!

Autumn is such a glorious time of year. I love everything about it. Except that my asthma. But then, that is an issue all year round. So, suck it up, Buttercup! 

And I wear plaid flannel shirts all year long. I think there are currently nine flannels in my closet right now.  And I am drawn to a good multicolor flannel. Flannels and tank tops, they work for every layering need! And plaid stamps of all kinds. Especially the builder type. 

So, when I got the Pumpkin Hair stamp from The Rabbit Hole Designs, I thought I would make a card quick. Well, that turned into four cards! Check out the video.

Let's start with the watercolor painted plaid background. Don't let all the colors intimidate you, it is really easy to do. I used  a variety of watercolor mediums to create it, and it was so fun!

I also watercolored this grumpy pumpkin several times, and fussy cut it for this card.

I also pulled out one of my go-to design techniques: white satin pearl heat embossing the background with a stamped image. 

I also pulled in some Concord and 9th stamps and dies. Shop your stash, folks! There are so many great products out there!

No plaid on this one, but you know I had to make at least one slimline card!

I  kept this one looking very clean and simple. I have been practicing that look, and I think I am finally getting good at it, lol!

This is a 5x7 or A7 card, as are all the non-slimline cards in this post. The plaid non this card is created using two sets from Concord and 9th, because I am a little extra 😉

I  stamped this  plaid with Distress Oxides and Encore Silver ink. 

Now, I did  share this card in an earlier post. Butt I thought it was worth including here, as it is in the video. I love how the swirls in this stenciled background work with the design!

Pickett Fence Studios has some gorgeous sequin mixes that come in a compact case, so cute! I used the Candy Corn Shot mix here. 

If you want to see how I created the swirled background, here is a video. I used a panel leftover from this crafting session to create the pumpkin swirl card. 

I hope you are all finding ways to enjoy this beautiful season, and are recharging  your batteries a little each day. Until next time, happy crafting!
