Best of Autumn Pumpkins, PPA174, FM130, TSTR186

Hooray for the weekend! I hope you all have something fun planned this weekend. I'll be a busy beaver today, but Sunday night I'll be attending an event called Rise of the Jack-O-Lanterns in Old Westbury Gardens. I'll try to take some pictures for you, but as the event is at night I make no promises!

So speaking of pumpkins... I was not planning on posting a card today, but there are just so many fun challenges this time of year for autumnal projects, I just had to squeeze in one more! I'm playing along with three challenges today and using the Best of Autumn stamp set once again. Sometimes I purchase a stamp set and it sits collecting dust for a while, but not this one! 

The first challenge to get my creative wheels in gear was the PPA Color Challenge, so perfect for this time of year and for my stamp set.

I'm also playing along with The Shabby Tea Room, and their challenge this week is to create a project inspired by the photo and include burlap and/or twine and pumpkins. Count me in!

The challenge at Friday Mashup is to create a project with "Ripped paper", Create a project with a "a fussy cut image." (Cut something out), Or Mash it Up and create a project "with some Ripped paper & something Fussy Cut." I have some ripped paper under my stamped images, I hope that will do!

I stamped my images with Black Stazon Ink onto Watercolor Paper and colored them in with ink pads and an Aqua Painter.  The gingham to the right of the image was stamped with the Gingham Wheel stamp.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Best of Autumn, Gingham Wheel Stamp
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Baked Brown Sugar
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Pumpkin Pie, Baked Brown Sugar, Pear Pizzazz
Tools: Aqua Painter
Accessories: Linen Thread, Watercolor Paper

Thanks for paying me a visit today!
