Pink Pumpkins + Inspired By + New Release
I’m really feeling the autumn vibe at the moment, the temperatures are cooling down, the leaves on the early trees have already turned colour and fallen and the rest of the greenery in the garden is making autumn preparations too. And so I was delighted to see that in the latest release from Simon Says Stamp, their Peace On Earth release, not only includes winter and holiday supplies but also some autumnal ones too. I’ve linked all supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I pulled out the Pumpkins stencil and Thanksgiving dies as an obvious autumnal pairing and this card is part of my Inspired By series because it was inspired by the fabulously clean and simple style of Cathy Zielske but also from the colours in a home catalogue I was flicking through. In the video, you’ll see the autumn catalogue from Cox and Cox and the colours on the page that drew me in – the soft pinks, peachy-orange and deep burgundy with the occasional navy accent. The three main colours mixed with a rich gold got me thinking and after all, who says pumpkins can’t be pink!
A tip I learned from decorating my home is to lift stencils/painter’s tape while things are still wet. So after ink blending and then splattering and while the splatter was still wet, I gently lifted the stencil to reveal the pumpkins. If you leave the paint to dry and then pull the stencil off, you risk the paint splatters cracking.

Fabulous color and the hint of navy is perfect! Thank you Debby!
Great card, Debby. Especially like the soft colors and spatter effects. This is a fabulous release, isn’t it? tfs-stay well.
Really Beautiful soft colors!!!! Love it!!!
Interesting card! Was surprised with no water coloring but hard to do with a stencil. This is an awesome stencil. The new matte gold and silver cardstocks are great, also. Thank you. Missed your videos.
