Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
As summer winds down and we are all getting excited for back to school, I thought I would start off the week with a fall favourite. Pumpkin spice. It's in the air, it's in the food, it's in the coffee.
Coffee, coffee, coffee! As we say good bye to sleeping in, we can say hello to pumpkin spice lattes!
To begin, I stamped the little shaker, then masked it off, then stamped the latte mug and masked that off from Lawn Fawn's "Pumpkin Spice" set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock.
I then stamped the two pumpkins (masking them as well) from Lawn Fawn's "So Thankful" set. I then removed all the masks and stamped the little shaker sparkle from Pumpkin spice to make the scene magical, because really pumpkin spice is magical.
I coloured all the images in with Copic markers. I added some Spectrum Noir Clear overlay to the shaker bottle and the whip cream and covered those with Glossy Accents by Ranger.
I stamped the first and last part of the greeting using Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink and the "Pumpkin Spice" using CTMH Autumn Terracotta ink - which turned out to be the perfect pumpkin spice colour.
I wanted a coordinating border, but didn't have quite the right shade of cardstock, so I used some Rusty Hinge Distress ink to make it close. Then I adhered the whole lot to a standard A2 sized card base.
I didn't want random brown sparkles, so instead of colouring in those little specks, I added a mini diamond from CTMH Bitty Sparkles to each of them.
