Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

It's great to be a part of this month's PTI blog hop. In case you're not coming from the hop, you'll want to check it out by visiting Nichole Heady's blog  for the list of participants who are using this inspiration photo from  Retro Mama for this month's hop.


Here's my card and an explanation of the  four elements from the inspiration photo that I included and the PTI products I used.
!. Pumpkin--Fall Elegance stamp set
2. Acorns-- the narrow strip of patterned paper was made by stamping the acorn and leaf stamp from Mat Stack 1 in Spring Moss Pigment Ink (My PTI package with the new inks arrived the day after I made my card.) Remember you can click on image for a larger view.
3. Polka dots-Spring Moss paper from Pretty Pastels paper pad
4. Flourishes- I stamped the small flourishes  from Embellishments in Spring Moss after stamping and masking the pumpkin. The larger flourishes behind the seed packet are die cut from SM cs and stamped with SM ink.

I used these elements with Garden Variety stamp set. The seed packet was cut from paper printed from Crafty Secrets Vintage CD. I attached the round closure with dimensional tape and added the twine to hint at a twine closure for the seed packet. I used the seed packet frame die, button card die and Rustic Cream cs for the front panel of the seed packet. I colored the strip with a Copic. The sentiment is from Gratitude Journal. After using a 1-inch punch to cut it out, I topped it with a clear epoxy sticker. The final embellishments include cream seam binding ribbon and some Making Memories flowers.

This card is for all the participants in this hop. I am grateful for the wonderful creative inspiration each of you share.
