Pumpkin Tower....Serendipity Stamps September Blog Hop (#2)

Hello,

Has Fall made its presence known in your part of the world? It certainly has here; the leaves are sporting lovely shades of amber and red, the winds are blowing and the rains are looming on the horizon. Actually, the first 'sign' of autumn's arrival for me: wearing my long-johns and winter coat at the two bike races we officiated at over the weekend.  Brrrr...

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps September Blog Hop (#2), where my incredible DT and I are sharing a whole bunch of Serendipity Stamps sensations. To be in the running for a $20 gift certificate, just hop along the DT blogs (you should have come from incredibly talented, sweet Patti Kehl's blog) and leave a comment.  Here's the list.


Along with pumpkin spice everythings and cozy sweaters and fuzzy leggings, Fall also brings about a couple of my favourite occasions, with the first being Halloween (second being Thanksgiving - early in Canada, and third, my brother's and husband's birthdays, in October and November, respectively). I'm not a Halloween *fanatic* - we give out candy for sure -but I fall head-over-heels with it as an *excuse* to make cards, tags and mini cards for my niece and nephew, their classmates, their teachers and their friends. It's also justifies the many Halloween products that have been accumulating(how does that happen *grin*) in my collection...love cute spooky stuff!  

That said, today, I'm sharing Serendipity's Pumpkin Tower with you. Aren't these jack o'lanterns sooooo scary? HA! NOT!  Inked, clear embossed, water-coloured with...are you ready...Crayola water-colour paints (channeling my inner child *grin* AND they kinda sorta worked for me!), fussy cut and set atop a web. I used a 'boo' that I've had for ages, source unknown, and ta dahhhhh...another Halloween card for one of Miss T's or Mr. C's teachers.

Fun! Look at those cheery jack-o-lanterns! You just showed you don't necessarily need high dollar supplies to get the high dollar look! :) The spiderweb backdrops look terrific. A fun and festive card, sure to delight! Fall made a show last night when the temp dropped like a rock for the band practicing on the field and they were unprepared for the change. It's been so warm up to then! Bring on the cozy!

Like the layering that you did of the stamp and the cobwebs - give the card a nice dimensionality.
