A Raccoon and his Pumpkin

Why, yes, it's another pumpkin card.  I believe I mentioned I have a lot of pumpkins to color this year.  This makes five so far and, if memory serves, there are three yet to go.  I'm trying to get to all of them before fall is over.




Today's pumpkin is new to me this year, a Eureka Stamps digi called Pumpkin Raccoon.  I'm here, there, and everywhere when it comes to buying stamps, digital or otherwise.  You link, I follow.

I let the Copic-colored image pop on a muted background.  Tutti Designs Leaves Background cut from old designer paper and Tutti Designs Stitched Nesting Hearts -- both new to me.  I like using hearts on my cards.  A little glitter couldn't hurt, so I applied Stickles Stardust glitter glue to the sentiment and pumpkin.




I'll be back Wednesday with a Christmas card and it does not include a pumpkin.  I hope to see you then.  Enjoy your day!


Stamps:  Eureka Stamps digital Pumpkin Raccoon  Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Bazzill tans, SU Garden Green and old SU designer paper  Ink:  Printer, Copics for coloring  Accessories:  Stickles Stardust glitter glue, Tutti Designs Leaves Background and Stitched Nesting Hearts, Paper Smooches Hello Words

I just love this card! It is so cute with the skunk peeking over the pumpkin. I for one could keep making Halloween/fall cards all year long! Have a great week!

Sigh.... gorgeous coloring as always.The papers are perfect and great colors to make the pumpkin pop. I must say the little guy looks like he ate too much pumpkin. So cute and whimsical.

I think we should give pumpkins lots of air time because the season is so short! This is another gorgeous one complete with its hugable companion coon! You are inspiring once again, Leslie, with your use of NBUS and your coloring! Love that leafy background cut from leafy pp!! ❤Hugs, Darnell

Hi there Leslie: What a gorgeous card, I've never heard of this Eureka Stamps but I just went to check it out and I love their digis.
This pumpkin is amazing and the little Raccoon is thinking the same thing, the way she is hugging it so sweetly.
Your coloring of this image is outstanding as always, love the leafy die background, it's beautiful
Now tell me.....Did you fussy cut this image? Or is there a coordinating die?
Awesome card my friend, thank you for sharing.
XO

OMG this image is just TOO cute and your coloring on the pumpkin is AMAZING!! WOW look at you go with those Tutti dies and I would have NEVER thought to use a heart here ... but it looks wonderful! Well done!!

Margaret said...

What a cute image and I dearly love that leaf background die. You just know how to pull it all together.

Okay, this card is just simply adorable! Love it. You always make the most amazing Halloween cards Leslie, for some reason this is one card I don't make a lot of. Maybe I need to get better at mailing out cards, then I would have to make Halloween cards! The Tutti Design background is amazing, and the paper your used works perfectly. I love hearts too, and have noticed you do use them a lot, which is always a nice touch. Your Raccoon is super sweet - fabulous colouring on your image. The bit of stickles finishes off your card nicely! Thanks for sharing today, looking forward to seeing your post on Wed... until then, Hugs,

so adorable, he looks so cheeky peeking out from behind that huge pumpkin. Great copic colouring and the stickles glitter glue really glisten :)

Cute raccoon peaking over the pretty with a bit of stickles sparkle pumpkin, Leslie. I love your designer paper background and die cut hearts in neutral colors. Such a fun Fall design, my friend. TFS Hugs..Nancy

Oh my goodness, his expressions kills me, I think that must be what our raccoon looks like when he is sneaking up to take my suet once again. Love the coloring, I like how you captured the little leaf in your tiny heart and used the same paper for your background die cut, so cool!

There are always so many details to look at on your cards, Leslie! And I love the texture you've included in this darling creation. The card is rich in color, detail, texture...it's just beautiful.
