Thankful Hearts

Hello Everyone and welcome back.

Time for a new Crafty Creations Challenge

Crafty Creations Challenges always have great sponsors and the sponsor for this challenge (#302) 
is Fresh Brewed Designs

Crafty Creations Challenges last 2 weeks and the theme for this challenge is Give Thanks

Since we have the Thanksgiving holiday coming very soon, 
I decided to use the Fresh Brewed Designs pumpkin image. It's #70 - Fall Pumpkin, 
click here to check it out and/or order it.

Let me show my card.

Those pumpkins I used on my card are the same image. I just changed the shape somewhat when I printed them out on my card stock.

Here is the original image right after I colored it. I sized this one at about 2" 

And below is the second image.
 To print my saved images, I use Word software and insert the saved digital image on the Word document. On this second image I made it larger, to do that I used the arrow in the bottom center and pulled the image downward instead of using the corner arrow. Using that corner arrow keeps the image size in perspective. I wanted this pumpkin to be taller and skinnier.

Let me share with you info on that center portion of the card, I used some corrugated cardboard  and pulled some of the paper off the front side to make it look distressed and colored with Pan Pastels. I then placed that corrugated piece on the card center.

I attached the pumpkins to that center panel.( I know this looks wet but it really isn't.)
For a little added texture I added a vine which is Boxwood twine and its bendable. Love it!!

Stamps:  Digital Pumpkin - Fresh Brewed Designs, Sentiment - Hero Arts (old)
Paper/Card Stock
:White CS, Brown CS, Corrugated box piece
Ink: Black India Ink
Dies Used: Accucut Die - Center Step Card
Accessories:Pan Pastels, Colored Pencils, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Boxwood bendable Twine

    Great card Barbara. Very clever idea to make two different shaped pumpkins from the same image. The embossed background is perfect for it too.

    Thanks for your note over at Crafty Cardmakers and for being considerate enough to ask, but as this was created for Thanksgiving, it's absolutely fine. I do appreciate you taking the time to ask though!

    Good luck

    Love the manipulated pumpkins - they look wonderful, after all which two pumpkins are alike? Great idea Barb. Love the corrugated backing too. Lots of autumnal color and feeling in this card.
