So Greatful.........

I love it when a plan comes together--esp when you did not have one!  Well I fell in love with this stamp set from CTMH called SO GREATFUL. It is a multi step stamp set that is perfect for the fall. I also found what I thought was the perfect paper to use from Imaginisce---guess what it was named---SO GREATFUL!  NO JOKE!  I think they are a perfect pairing!
I used a kraft card base and used the Imaginisce pumpkin paper for the large matte.
You all know I love that cord ribbon from Hobby Lobby and I also used one of the new Hobby Lobby embossing folders called leaves for the green matte.  I used foam squares to elevate the layers and add some 3D.

So this is how I did the pumpkin.  I first stamped the orange base, the brown stem which was a second gen stamp, and the green vine.  I then stamped the word overlay in versa mark ink and added dark brown embossing powder and heated it up until it became glossy! I stamped the leaf on a scrap and cut it out--mini foam squares were put on the back and then I placed the leaf to give it even more pop!

I simply love how this turened out--
Make it a great one
