Fallin' for Pumpkins...

Here's my take on this week's Friday Mashup Challenge! The challenge is to make an autumn themed card or use yellows and oranges or mash them up and use both. And that is exactly what I did!
I started with a base of Cajun Craze (that's an orange color, right?!?) Next, I used cajun, Pumpkin Pie, and More Mustard and the stamp set French Foliage. I made my own DSP! Next I added a layer of Chocolate Chip. On top of that, I added strips of cajun, pumpkin, Peach Parfait, and mustard. Before I attached those, I ran this one through the Big Shot with the polka dot folder.
On this one, I ran the strips of paper through the big shot using the lattice folder (same colors).
Next I used my 1 1/4" circle punch and punched 3 circles in pumpkin, and I sponged the edges in pumpkin to create those cute little pumpkins. I used the retired slot punch to punch out a "stem" in Old Olive. Then I sliced a sliver of olive, wrapped it around my paper piercer to create a curly-cue for the pumpkin .
Finally, I stamped the sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) in cajun on white and punched it with my word window. Then I used the modern label punch to create a base of chocolate.
Here's a close up of the sweet pumpkin. I just love how this looks!
I popped up both the pumpkin and the sentiment using my stampin' dimensionals.
I hope you like them! Thanks for looking!
