Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Pumpkin Patch

Happy Tuesday Crafters,

Today starts the new Scrappy Mom Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Pumpkin Patch.


I don't know about you but when I think of pumpkin patches I think of Linus sitting in the pumpkin patch on Halloween waiting for the Great Pumpkin. So I thought it would be cute to use Linus in my project.
I searched the internet for an image I could use.   I also found the big moon background without any characters and grabbed that as well and pulled them into my Silhouette software.   
I fussy cut around Linus to remove the background so I would only have Linus, the pumpkins and the sign; had to fussy cut because it was so busy I couldn't get good lines to trace what I wanted.   
I removed the saying from the sign Linus is holding by putting a white square over it before I printed it out so I could stamp my sentiment on it.  
The Sentiment I used for my project is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps "Bewitched" stamp set.  
Thought it went cute with Linus sitting in the pumpkin patch 
waiting for someone to come hang out with him. :)
Used my eBrush to shade the pumpkins, leaves and edges of card base and mats. 

Here are some pictures of my project: 

Here's a close up.  
Love being able to print and cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 
I'm also happy with how the shading turned out with my ebrush 
of course I had to add some lines and dots with my white Gelly Roll pen.   
I think it helped the leaves and pumpkin stems pop out. 

Here's a picture looking down the top of the card to show the inside.   I layered the moon background several times to fit in the cut so it would look complete.   

 Here is a picture of it closed.  
Not completely happy that the sign sticks out but I couldn't change it around 
so it wouldn't hang out when it was closed so it will have to do. :)  
Almost didn't want to share this picture.. 
1. because it shows the sign hanging out and 2. because it's  bad picture with to many shadows. :(

Card Recipe:
  • "Let's Hang out!" sentiment from the Scrappy Mom's Stamps "Bewitched stamp set
  • Box card is from the Silhouette Store - A2 Fall Pumpkin Box Card ~ Design #68814
  • Edges, pumpkin and leaves were shaded with my eBrush using sharpies.
