Pumpkin Time

Hi, there!  It's Team Diane's turn to start a new Double D Challenge today, and the theme is Pumpkin Time.  I'm on Team Darlene, but many of Darlene's teamies have joined in with samples today, as well.  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use my new Feeling Fall set from Power Poppy as this particular stamp features three pumpkins and a kitty cat.

 
 
 
Here's our beautiful inspiration board:
 
 
 
 
Hey, well, at least I have pumpkins.  I also used a gorgeous Tutti designs Maple Vine Frame, cut from designer paper and looking very fall-ish.  This frame could easily be pumpkin leaves, too.  Hmmm... I could have cut it in green...  I layered the vine frame over a Memory Box Oval Master Frame with a Sue Wilson Porto die in the center for the image.  I hand cut the "Boo" banner and applied Wink of Stella sparkle to the "Boo!" and to the purple ribbon in the image.
 
 
 
 
When I was clearing out the excess from my stamp room I took a good look at my embellishments.  I kept all the brads, and they are legion, so I figured I should start using them.  Hence the four purple brads accenting the image panel.
 
I colored with the following Copics:
 
 
 
 
I'm playing along in two other challenges today, as well:
 
 
Be sure to check out the wonderfully varied Pumpkin Time team samples at Double D, and then show us yours.  I get such a kick out of seeing all the entries.  Have a good day!

  4. Super cute Leslie...what a fabulous image and colored so beautifully too! The kitty looks like one of our 'shed' kitties we have here. Those purple brads are a fun addition too (I have been using mine lately, too)! Another stunner for sure!!

  8. This is just fantastic! Your designs & coloring are always beyond compare! Of course you had to use a darling stamp with a cat...just when I am trying to clean out my stamps so I don't have to take them all to the new house! I think I am giving away almost 20 bags of stamps as of this point & still cleaning. I can't wait until I have time to actually stamp again!

  23. You have the most amazing dies, Leslie! I love those leaves, and I agree - they could just as well be pumpkin leaves. I love your coloring, too, of course. Good luck using up brads:) I have several thousand of them!

  24. Again, your detail is wonderful! And the colors are so vibrant! (I'm glad that someone somewhere sometime decided to add purple to the Halloween orange and black. (My high school AND college colors were orange and black.) That is one cute cat with the pumpkins, too.

  27. Oh, Leslie!!! This is so GORGEOUS, and I love this sweet little kitty who is clearly thinking something adorable and mischievous....hehe! Your coloring is fabulous, and I love the shading, grounding and how you've added the purple around the die. And the leaf border is stunning for this card with the black background. It's absolutely wonderful, and I need to start pulling out some of my brads. I too have a lot! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo

  28. Oh Leslie, this is gorgeous! I love the leaf frame you used, and how it frames your image. I love the PP image, so adorable. I have way too many brads as well very seldom use them, but I like the way you used them on this card. The purple brads seem to draw you eyes to your gorgeous coloured image. Love the 'boo' banner as well. TFS!

  29. Beautifully designed, Leslie! Lovely PP image, with your incredible coloring. The hues are amazing. Wow! Your black matting REALLY brings on the drama, doesn't it? Incredible design! The leafy frame is cut in that pretty paper, to set the autumnal theme further. Gorgeous card, my friend!
