Carving Pumpkins for Quick Quotes

Hello Quick Quote friends!  Neva here to share a memory from a few years back that features a few Halloween pumpkins!

There are several collections that feature orange, which I thought would be a good backdrop for my layout.
  • Two sheets of Secret Garden 104 with the orange flowered pattern is a great background.
  • Two sheets of Navigator 100 are trimmed to 7 1/2" x 9" and 7 1/2" x 12" and inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner.
  • The background is outlined with washi tape.
  • The title is die cut from black cardstock.

The two pumpkin borders are easily created using stamps and ink on Navigator 100.
  • Two sections are trimmed to 9" x 2" and 2" x 12".
  • The pumpkin images are first stamped in Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner.
  • A brush tip applicator is used to color the pumpkins with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Biscotti on the stems and Rusty Nail on the pumpkins.  I like how this particular stamp set let me mix and match.
  • Both sections are backed with Navigator 104 trimmed to 7" x 2 5/8" and 2 5/8" x 12". 
  • All the sections are edged in Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner,

This saying from Farmhouse 500 is not only orange, but is also fun to use!
  • The saying is trimmed and inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Coal Miner.
  • Navigator 104 backs the saying.
  • Washi tape ribbons are created by layering washi tape on both sides of white cardstock.  
  • The "ribbons" are trimmed, folded, and adhered to the back of the sentiment.
