Cards in Envy: Pumpkin Challenge

Hello Friends!  It’s Monday and time for a Cards in Envy challenge.  Our theme this challenge is all about PUMPKINS!  You can use a pumpkin on your card, or just use pumpkin colors. Our rules have lightened up a little bit and now your card entries can be any size as long as it still fits into an envelope.  You can use a little more dimension too. Our challenge will run through Sunday, November 20, just in time to get those Thanksgiving cards made and in the mail.

For my card today I used a pumpkin stamp that I pulled from my stash that I got years ago in a grab bag so I don’t know the artist.  I colored up the image with Copic Markers and added some distress inks.  The paper is Carta Bella’s “Autumn” collection and the leaves are from Impression Obsession dies with a bit of Distressed Glitter on the edges.  The background is gold heat embossed and I finished off with some Nuvo drops in gold.


Hope you stop by and enter a card this challenge over at Cards in Envy!

  1. Hi Kathy! The coloring on this pumpkin is beautiful. I love the framed layers too. Have a great day.


  2. Holy moly this is so awesome.. all that detail equals one incredible card. My favorite part is probably the pumpkin itself. The shading and color are amazing. Thank you for the inspiration.


  3. Kathy, This is so pretty! Love your wonderful coloring — as usual — and those pretty leaves nestled around the corners. 🙂


  4. Gorgeous card!! Love the coloring on the pumpkin 🙂 ~Sophia
