STAMPtember Bonus Pumpkin Card

Happy Sunday my friends, I'm sharing a STAMPtember weekend bonus "I love to mix grungy and cute" card today using up the left over Simon Says Stack o' Pumpkins die-cuts from yesterday's cards and one of the backgrounds I made with Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Mica Stains and Black Texture paste from the Halloween 2023 release. If you missed the Tim Holtz Distress Christmas YouTube Live where Tim demos and explains the properties of the Distress Mica Stains and pastes, believe me, it is well worth watching, full of hints and tips and as always so inspirational - to watch the replay click HERE.

I had 3 pumpkin die-cuts and sentiments left over from yesterday's cards, too cute to go to waste. You can check out the colouring of the pumpkins on yesterday's post HERE.
So after a rummage through my background box, I thought this one, created with Hickory Smoke and Lost Shadow Distress Spray Stain, Phantom Mist and Fallen Acorn Distress Mica Stains, Distress Black Texture Paste stencilled through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Rosette Mini Layering Stencil and Distress Texture Paste Opaque through the Deco Arch Mini Layering Stencil, splattered with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink, was perfect and I trimmed to 4.1/4" square.
I splattered the pumpkins with Distress Resist Spray, sprinkled with white embossing powder, heat set,  added white highlights on the pumpkin eyes using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and fixed the pumpkins popped up on black foam squares.. I added Trinity Stamps Creamy Vanilla Heart Sprinkles, matted the panel on to Simon Says Black cardstock trimmed 1/4" larger and matted on to a 5" square white card blank. I added the sentiments from Simon Says Friendly Ghosts stamp set, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink, stamped on to scraps of Distress Watercolor card and die-cut with the matching Friendly Ghosts dies.

Have fun with whatever you are making and enjoy the rest of your weekend
Hugs Kath xxx
