I love the What A Hoot! August stamp of the month set.

Here's the little pumpkin from that set. 

For the base, I inked up my Damask embossing folder with Black ink and placed a piece of Whisper cardstock onto it, then ran it through my new Big Shot.

{ Did I tell you all that I won big at a stamping event when I was visiting my sister in Calgary in July?  She signed us up to attend Allison Okamitsu's Bingo night event at her home - luv Allison by the way!, and I won the biggest prize at the end of the night that included the new SU In-Color cardstock and markers and all of the Hostess Rewards stamp sets AND also included the money collected from everyone who bought additional bingo cards at $5 each, so I also won $145 in cash to put towards Stampin' Up! product from their new catalog.  I quickly ordered a new Big Shot -- as I had sold the one I had won from the Stampin Royalty blog years ago, and had regretted selling it ever since!  I left Allison's in shock that night... ;)  }

I stamped the pumpkins in Versamark and Black ink onto White Daisy cardstock, and heat embossed Clear Detail embossing powder over top.

I pulled out my old markers to color the pumpkins, but they seemed so bare even though they were cute on their own, but I thought I'd water-paint the sky with my waterbrush and inks and color the ground with my markers.  I also added a little shading around the pumpkins on the ground with my old markers.

Love how it turned out.  ♥

Happy creating!  :)

Beautiful colouring on your pumpkins, Vicki! And I LOVE your embossing, very pretty!

Nancy Ball said...

LOVE your colouring and how the black ink on the embossing folder is imperfect. Makes the background a wee bit spookier!

This card is great, but what I really love is that technique with the embossing folder - I hadn't thought to do that! What a great idea!!

Love this card - it's a way classier style than I thought this stamp set was capable of. And way to go on the big win - that's awesome! I love my Big Shot, even though I don't use it as much as I used to.
