Taylored Expressions September Release Day – Sack It Pumpkin

Woohoo! It’s finally here! Release Day for the September Taylored Expressions stamp release! YAY!!!

Jack o'Lantern card by Jen Shults, dies from Taylored Expressions

For this card I used the brand new and super adorable Sack It Pumpkin to cut out my card base out of Candy Corn TE cardstock. Then I die cut another pumpkin out of scrap cardstock to make a mask to sponge the lines on the pumpkin. To do this I just sketched the lines on to the pumpkin and cut it apart and layed this over the pumpkin card and sponged away. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to sponge on the lines. I then die cut the face of the pumpkin out of Lemon Meringue TE Cardstock and I used Copics to make the subtle depth on the edges. For the stem I used kraft cardstock that I sponged with Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used PeaPod TE cardstock for the leaf and sponged it with Mowed Lawn as well. Next I assembled the card with Quick Dry Adhesive and I was done!
