This card was made for a card challenge that required the use of carved pumpkins, and have some inspiration from a fall leaf garland.
I chose to use my Stampin' Up! (SU) retired 2004 "Carved & Candlelit" stamp set with three different shades of orange ink from SU. Solid stamps are always a challenge to get a good impression, so I used my SU Stamparatus stamp positioner tool to stamp each pumpkin at least 3 times. For the dark orange pumpkin in the back, I used a Post-It cut to the same shape as the tall front pumpkin to make the darker one appear as if it was in the background.
The leaves were stamped with the same oranges, plus the green from the pumpkin stem and two browns.
The sentiment with the spider web and stars was drawn onto the card using my Brother ScanNCut Digital Cutting/Drawing machine with an extra fine tip Sharpie Marker. The SVG file I used was from Design Bundles. I just edited it to get rid of some extraneous words, then used the "draw" function to write it on the front of my card.
The card came together really quick, but after a long search through my stamp sets without finding a suitable Halloween sentiment, I spent about half an hour creating the written one I finally used.
I am rating the difficulty level for this card as a "2" out of a possible "5" (assuming you have a suitable sentiment). I think my grand-daughter will love it!
