Pumpkin Spice Challenge at Impression Obsession!

Good Thursday everyone!  Today starts the Impression Obsession 'Pumpkin Spice' challenge.   You may include pumpkins, coffee, both, or either one.  I went with pumpkins and one of my favorite sentiments from the fall stamp release.
Stamps/dies links:
Large Frame DIE860-WW
Pumpkins CL978
Pumpkin Kisses CL979
Cover-A-Card Gingham CC006 (background)

I used the Large Frame die to cut the frame, and set that aside, while I created the background.  For that, I used the Cover-A-Card Gingham background stamp.  I inked it with my distress ink cubes, and stamped it onto ivory card stock.  

I did not use the Misti, or I would have stamped it two or three times.   I was going to stamp it again, using my Misti, but on second thought I kind of liked the distressed look of the rough stamping, so I kept it.  I added the verse with Nocturne Claire VersaFine ink.

I placed the background behind the frame, and mounted that to a green A2 card front.  
I stamped the pumpkins, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them.  I added them with foam tape for dimension.  


Can I just say I love this stamp!  It's perfect for backgrounds, and looks great in any/every color or combinations of colors!

I hope you will join us for the fun at the Impression Obsession blog.  Check out the other designer's projects, and make one of your own.  You just might win a $25 IO gift certificate!  And your card will be featured on the IO blog.  You can't win if you don't enter.
