CASING A CARD - WITH STAMPFAIRY



Hello Everyone...

Thanks everyone for all your comments lately...really gives me a buzz after a long day at work to come home and have a good read...

Today I'm here to share a DT card for STAMPFAIRY ....BUT!!...I'm casing a card I popped on my Make it Monday - DT post  as my POTW [Pick of the Week] from HELEN  and if you click on the link [ Helens name]you can see her gorgeous card featuring the ever lovable BARRY PUMPKINS ...

This is my card using BARRY PUMPKINS 5 ...



To make my big pumpkin..I cut out 3 ovals with my largest oval die and inked up the edges with distress inks...them placed them to form the pumpkin, with the front die on foam dots....added a "Cheerylyn leaf die"...


There's side one view....with Barry all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils....sitting on his little pile of pumpkins...well, he couldnt reach the big could he..                         
 
 
 
 
And there is side two...not much point doing a close up as the pumpkin is sooo big...lol.. and I made a simple  "Thanks" tag...and hooked it on one of the tendrils.
 
The papers were from Crate Paper "Portrait Collection"...and my cursor keeps starting in the middle of my post and driving me silly...
 
Entering these challenges.. 
                                                                                      
 
Bitten by the Bug  [Pumpkins]                                                                                  
 
Use Your stuff [Orange..green.. Brown]                                                               
 
                                                                                                                                                                                            
Anyhow...all done now...thanks so much for stopping by and just love reading your comments to let me know you have been...
 
Will see you tomorrow..
 
Luv CHRISSYxx

I told you that I was trying to catch up on some blogs, and I am so glad I did. This pumpkin is just gorgeous! I love the idea of using ovals. I have a pumpkin die from Spellbinders, but I really want to try this out. I hope it would be ok if I Cased this as well. I will make sure to give you credit. I just think it simply Gorgeous!!! I always love your bears and I am sure you are tired of me saying, but I do. I guess I need to buy a thesaurus one of these days so that I have more than one way to say it over and over again. lmbo... Anyway, I am going to go and try this out. Have a wonderful weekend my friend. Hugs Lisa
