Pumpkin Patch Sneak Peek

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - MYO Stamps, also for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 31 - Pop It Up and for my layout I used SWEET SUNDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 34. I stamped a couple of the pumpkins on the focal image panel then masked and stamped a couple more off the the sides and stamped 2 by themselves to cut out and pop up. All images were colored with copics. For today's TLC I ran some fun foam through the cuttlebug using Pumpkin Harvest Embossing Folder. This was my 4th and final attempt. I almost gave up. I have used foam before to make images for stamping but never tried the CB. Will NOT be trying the CB again for that. The foam just would not take the shape well and then would return back to its flat self before I could get it inked. I tried many different combinations of sandwiches to make it work and was afraid on the last attempt that I was going to break my CB. NOT worth it. Anyway the last try was a little more sucessful and I am satisfied with the results. I inked my stamp up with pumpkin pie and stamped ontop of some Recollections Halloween dp I picked up at Michaels Saturday. I used the rest of the sheet for my base adn matted it on crushed curry. My focal panel was matted with pumpkin pie and then old olive. I used a set that is due to be released the 15th of this month along with many other fantastic fall sets from CLEAR AND SIMPLE STAMPS - Pumpkin Patch. Hope you like it.

This looks great--even though it was so challenging to get the technique to work!
