FCCB #287 - Pumpkins!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #287-Pumpkins
Make a project about pumpkins!

This Weeks Sponsor

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team! This prize will be given if there are 10 entries or more.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project I started with the sweet Pumpkin Spice Latte cutting file from our awesome sponsor, Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. I love coffee and I'm a sucker for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, so this was the perfect place to start! I placed it on the PPPR Side Step Card and started layering.

I used a woodgrain embossing folder in my Cuttlebug and embossed the panel behind both the coffee cup and the diecut Love You A Latte sentiment, which was cut from the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge. A little Distress Ink around the edges of my diecuts as well as over top of the wood embossing just adds a bit of highlighting.

I stamped this cute sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps, the PPPR sister store, from the Harvest Happiness stamp set (on SALE until October 13, 2016 - see bottom of blog post!) directly onto my diecut pumpkins from the CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge. That pretty pumpkin silhouette border is from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge and I layered it over an orange panel.

I added some Distress Stickles to the Love and Latte diecuts on this cute sentiment.

For the finishing touch I added my newest addiction - SEQUINS! from the Autumn Joy and Mocha Mint Dream sequin collections from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store. I've added a 35% off CODE at the bottom of this post!!
