New Technique

I tried the Technique Learning Challenge from SCS today. I came up with 2 cards. This technique makes it so that the card is self-standing! Check here for the challenge and links to more information: TLC288
I wanted to use a set for Fall. I know, summer is just in full swing, but I know Fall card making will be just around the corner.

The 1st card is made using the technique called masking. I thought it would look great for a number of pumpkins. The pumpkins and leaves also have Crystal Effects added to add dimension. The greeting is a rub-on from Stampin' Up! and the stamp set is Autumn Harvest.

The 2nd card was done because I'd seen a sketch challenge somewhere today that got my creativity going. I thought the 3 pumpkins would look great sponged and then cut out and added with dimensionals to pop the up a bit.

Ink colors used for both cards are:
Dusty Durango
Crushed Curry
Mellow Moss
Soft Suede
Pumpkin Pie
Certainly Celery

Paper used:
Mellow Moss
Shimmery White
Whisper White
Razzleberry Lemonade
