All About Autumn Pumpkin Thanks TT228

by Joanne James28. September 2023 15:00

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at TicTacToe! It's the turn of Team X to host this week and the lovely Felicita is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 


Our board has a distinctly Halloween feel this week, but since I don't have any current Halloween product and I wanted to use more of the lovely All About Autumn papers that I featured on yesterday's card (you can see that card here if you missed it), I went on the diagonal from top left with free/orange/embossing for a card that is still in keeping with the season - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Pumpkins! I thought this fabulous pumpkin-filled patterned paper would be perfect to play along with the 'pumpkin patch' theme over at TGIF Challenges this week. I'm not usually a big fan of photographic designs, but many of those in the All About Autumn pack are amazing! So much colour and texture - these papers are too good to cover up for sure. I decided to use the Try Stampin On Tuesday layout above so that much of my patterned paper remained visible, adding a contrasting horizontal piece and a pop of bright colour with the Pumpkin Pie banner and a simple copper-embossed thank you sentiment from the 'Something Fancy' stamp set to pick up on the copper tones in the paper:

A couple of brushed copper metallic dots complete my card. My own pumpkin patch doesn't have such a variety of pumpkins, but I can report that we managed to grow 5 bright orange pumpkins this year, 3 of which were rather decent in size too. They are already in storage in the garage, ready for carving. I have new young neighbours that were fascinated by my ever-expanding pumpkin patch this year, having never seen it before, and took great delight in checking on progress on a regular basis. They have challenged me to turn at least one of the pumpkins into Cinderella's coach for Halloween, so watch this space - I will share the results at the end of October!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

A tictactoe board offers so many creative possibilities - how does this week's board inspire you? Why not have a go? We would love to see you in the gallery and who knows - you might be selected for Designer's Choice and be eligible to be a guest designer on a future challenge. 

Enjoy your day; I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at Festive Friday. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is a wonderful way to use those pumpkin papers!  I am not a big fan of photographic papers either but I must admit that these are amazing!

That's a lovely layout, made all the better with those gorgeous papers. Is the gold and vanilla net one of th reverses? I've been trying hard to resist that DSP....

Joanne, I don't blame you for wanting to keep that beautiful paper front and center! Such a lovely thank you card to show someone how much you appreciate them. After seeing your double stitched banner, I think I may have overlooked a great die set in the catalog!! Thank you so much for sharing your card and creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
