Hey There, Pumpkin

I'm watching the Seahawk game. (A girl has to have her priorities even under writing deadlines!) It's 10-12 Hawks with 31 seconds left.  Because I tend to get...shall we say excited over these games, it's always good for me to have something to do while I watch.  I decided to play along with Color My Heart again this week.

I cut the pumpkin (Artbooking cartridge) four times and stamped it in Peacock, Fern, Desert Sand, and Eggplant. I cut out the individual sections and layered them over top of the Peacock pumpkin. I cut the coffee cup (Artistry cartridge) from white and Desert Sand at 2.8" tall.  I then used the "Slice" feature to cut the bellyband image out of the center of the coffee cup, deleted it, and cut the leftover in white again. I stamped heart in Eggplant using one section of the pumpkin, then glued both the heart and the cup top onto the first one and added a bow of white twine.

The background panel was run through the embossing folder before stamping the sentiment.  This only works if you have a MISTI so you can stamp three times to get the impression all the way into the crevices.

Hey...HAWKS WIN!!!

Until next time,


  1. You had me at Seahawks! Your card just speaks PNW - Pumpkin and Coffee! I love all the details including the embossing on your back panel. Thank you for playing at the Color My Heart Color Dare. #Buildabridge #G0Hawks
