Paper Sweeties October Inspiration Challenge



It is October First!
It's time for new releases here at Paper Sweeties!



And look at this GORGEOUS photo inspiration!


I was inspired by everything as you can see in my card!


I used the new Home Grown Sweet Cuts to make the pumpkins!
They are apples... I just cut off the leaf and stem!
Ta Da! Pumpkins!




I  did a little mixed media detail to this card. The pumpkins were embossed with a Tim Holtz stencil and Crackled Paste. And the background panel was embossed with another Tim Holtz stencil and embossing paste. Then everything was sponged with Distress inks.

I really, really hope you will join in the fun with us this month!!!! You could be our next Guest Designer or win a gift certificate from the Paper Sweeties Boutique!

Now go check out my

Oh wow... this is gorgeous! I love all the burlap die cuts I'm seeing..do you have to add a backing to the burlap before you cut it?
