We Create October Blog Hop Haunts & Harvest

Welcome to the We Create October Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme of Haunts & Harvest. October is a wonderful month for celebrating our favorite Fall activities including Halloween. With the cooler weather and changing leaves, we think of pumpkin patches, corn mazes and sweater weather. You will be visiting with our talented design team members as they share their wonderful projects to help inspire you and get you in the mood for Fall. 
When I think of Fall, it reminds me of the trips to the pumpkin patch with my family as we all hunt for that perfect pumpkin to carve ready for Halloween. We have a favorite farm that we enjoy visiting each year and they have a corn maze and farm animals that my kids enjoyed visiting. Now that they are older, the trips to the pumpkin patch are filled with nostalgia as they remember those fun childhood visits. For my card design today, I chose to use the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle paired with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper, both from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. The colors I chose have a wonderful Fall feel to them and I added texture to my design with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

This clean and simple Fall card works well for many occasions and works well as a masculine card design. To add detail to the design, I embossed the Basic White cardstock circle with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and lightly sponged it using a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake ink to bring out the embossed detail. It adds a wonderful distressed look behind the pumpkins that I colored with Stampin' Blends Markers. The Gold Fine Art Ribbon adds a touch of sparkle to the design and coordinates with the Gold embossing of the sentiment and the Gold dots that I chose to embellish the card.
