Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Oct. 2018

Hello friends.  It's the 25th and that means it's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly BLOG HOP, and Autumn is definitely the season shown by this month's inspiration photo!!


I was inspired obviously by the pumpkins, but also the cart and the chalkboard sign.  I was also inspired by Kelly Lunceford's post HERE using the Make It Market Kit: Market Street which sadly I think I have used only once since it came out and I HAD to have it!  So anyway, I came up with a CAS card and little cart that I filled with candy pumpkins...take a look:


I die cut the cart out of Kraft cs and then stamped it using Cocoa Bean ink stamped off once.  The pumpkins were stamped with Melon Berry and Orange Zest and the leaves with Prairie Grass and then die cut and attached to the cart along with the sign in black stamped with white ink.


I attached my cart to a white card base that I embossed with an older Craft Concepts ef called Stately to add the embossed lines around the edges.  Some bakers twine and iridescent sequins finished off my card.

 

And while I was at it, I made a little matching cart using Kraft cs and the dies from the Make It Market Kit: Market Street.  I used an older SU! background stamp called Hardwood to stamp the sides of the cart with Cocoa Bean ink and then sponged the wheels and body of the cart also with Cocoa Bean ink.  This cart came together SO easily and was the perfect size to add a few of those pumpkins from Brach's Harvest Mix.


So there you have it...a sweet little gift that I think I'll give to my mom for Halloween!  Can't wait to see how everyone else interpreted the inspiration photo...always FUN to hop along and check it all out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
