Coffee & Cards with Deb & Celeste 10/16

It's week 3 of my creative fun with Celeste and this time,  our theme is Fall colors ...  I absolutely love this crafty stack that I got for $5 at Michaels. It is a 12 x 12 stack from Craft Smith aptly named "Pumpkin Spice". I have been using it on quite a few projects these days. 

  • I stamped the Pumpkin image from Unity Stamp Company's  Pumpkin Greetings 3 times - once on plain paper and then again on 2 different patterned papers. I then cut out the patterned pumpkins and adhered them to the plain image. This image was then adhered to a burnt orange card base on the Right side. The ink I used was Memories Black India Ink.
  • I cut the journal card from the Pumpkin Spice paper stack by Craft Smith. The '"Autumn is Calling" image was cut from another page. The journal card was adhered to the Left side of the card base and the Autumn image was popped up at the top of that image using Dimensionals.
  • Several sequins in both Fall & contrasting colors were placed around the pumpkins. I also scattered some fun glitter around the bottom of the pumpkins. 

Fun sequins and Glitter

This blog post has been brought to you by a Gevalia Mocha Latte made in my Keurig coffee maker and served in my Starbucks re-usable travel cup.  That fun cozy on the cup was made by my creatively talented friend, Hetty Sanders who I met through our mutual love of coffee and papercrafting. I had forwarded her a pic of a cool foxy cozy I had seen and she actually made a few of them herself AND sent me one !! Thanks, Hetty -- I absolutely love it !!

Thank you once again for visiting Meticulosity !! I'm sure Celeste has a fun creation over at her blog, Crafting Junky so head on over there, check it out and leave her a comment.. We hope that you will follow our blogs if you aren't already. It's my turn to pick a theme for next week's card --- any suggestions from my commenters will be welcomed and considered. Have a wonderful week and do something creative !!!
