It might seem a bit early for pumpkin season, but here in Canada, harvest comes sooner than many other places. Canadian Thanksgiving is in less than a month. Unbelievable!!! And these are the two Thanksgiving cards I made for my daughters’ teachers.
They are both very simple. Here are the steps.
Black Background Card:
Stamp the Mini Harvest Pumpkin several times on watercolour paper, add gold embossing powder and heat set.
Colour each pumpkin in the colour and the media of your choice. I used watercolour markers.
Splatter white gouache all over the pumpkins.
Use the matching Mini Harvest die to cut each image and set aside.
Trim a piece of black cardstock to slightly smaller than an A2 card, and ink the edges with water base black ink. Sprinkle some shimmer spray.
Arrange some of the Mini Harvest Pumpkins as desired and adhere them to the black cardstock.
Adhere the sentiment to the panel.
White Background Card:
Trim a piece of white cardstock (I chose one with a nice texture) and randomly stamp the Mini Harvest Pumpkin using black ink.
Splatter some diluted ink all over the entire panel. I used purple ink to match the colour of the pumpkin.
Adhere one of the watercoloured pumpkins from the previous steps, in the position you desire.
I was going for simple, easy to make designs. Apart from the colouring, the cards were made in a pinch of time. The fact that I was able to make two cards in one sit, is huge, and I think it goes the same for many crafters who struggle with time to create.
I hope you like these projects and that you take inspiration from them.
See you next time!
