Autumn Fun with Kitchen Sink Stamps

Had fun today playing mix and match with my Kitchen Sink Stamps! I started by stamping the tree from Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon in Rich Cocoa on Bashful Blue card stock by Stampin' Up. After stamping the first layer of leaves in Dandelion Memento and the second layer in Tangelo, I added some Yellow and Orange Peel Stickles for a little bling.

Just had to throw in my wood plank and wrought iron fence for all our Georgia stampers!! I thought it would look great as a backdrop for these delightful KSS jack-o-lanterns. Thank you, ladies, for the wonderful experience of stamping with you! It was a remarkable day that I will never forget! You can read all about it on Maria's blog.

The fence was created using my EK Success punch and the third layer of the baseball bat from 3 Step Baseball stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink on Close to Cocoa card stock from Stampin' Up. The punched top was inked with Versafine Onyx Black.

The jack-o-lanterns are from Multi Step Pumpkins stamped in this order on white Georgia Pacific card stock:

Layer 2: Tangelo stamped off once
Layer 3: Tangelo
Layer 1: Cantaloupe
Layer 4: Potter's Clay stamped off once
Layer 5: Potter's Clay

Face Layer 1: Paris Dusk
Face Layer 2: Versafine Onyx Black

I then added the stems and cut out the pumpkins mounting them on dimensionals to the front of the fence.

I printed the Beware of Ghosts sign on my computer, punched it out, and sponged the edges with Desert Sand.
