Pumpkin Carriage Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  A limited fall release is here!!!  It is an exciting day.  I took the new Autumn Pumpkin and Fanciful Gilded Frame dies and created a pumpkin carriage.  I also used the Majestic Achievements stamp set for the sentiment.  I have so many more ideas with the pumpkin carriage and this stamp set and the castle collage dies.  I wish there was more time in the day.  


Pumpkin Carriage

Die but the leaves and vine portion of Autumn Pumpkin die from orange paper from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror pad. Die cut the Autumn Pumpkin from light orange card stock. Use a darker alcohol marker on the cut outlines and bottom and top of pumpkin.  Then lightly blend in.  I used Copic YR02.  To create the door opening, die cut the center of the pumpkin using the smallest die from Nested Globe dies.  Potion the top plate of your die cutting machine so it only cuts half way down then use a craft knife and ruler to cut the door out.    Die cut the smaller die from the nested Globe die set from the same orange mirror paper.  Reposition the die to cut cut out the bottom to look like the door.  Add tape to the bottom half of the door opening on the backside, sticky part forward, then add in the mirror door.  Die cut half of the Fanciful Gilded Fram from the same orange mirror paper.  Trim off the largest flourishes.  Adhere them to lower sides of the pumpkin to make it look like wheels.  Adhere the leaves and vine to the top of the pumpkin.



Die cut an oval from cream card stock using the 2nd to largest die from the Poppy Stamp Basic Ovals Set. Stamp the Mercer Rose Background stamp over all the oval using a gold ink pad.  Heat set dry.  Then rub the gold in pad around the outside edge of the die cut.



Heat emboss May all your DREAMS come true sentiment from the Majestic Achievements using a copper embossing powder.  I have one from many, many years ago and don't think the company is in business any more.  But any copper or orange embossing powder will work.  Cut to size and edge with the same alcohol marker as used to shade the pumpkin.



Adhere the oval background to a A2 sized cream card base.  Adhere the pumpkin carriage to the center and the sentiment with foam tope under the pumpkin.








Pretty. That castle stamp set is cute. Hugz
