Magnolicious Fall

Recently we took our kindergartners to a local apple orchard and they always have these huge pumpkins sitting around.  The first thing the children want to do is to climb on them.  When I went to make a Fall card using this new Magnolia image, I decided to create a scene from our orchard visit.

The card is created using various layers of rust, orange, green, purple, and both sides of some decorative cardstock.  I distressed all the edges and ran Tea Dye Distress Stain along them.  It gave the card a more rugged look.

For the image, I colored her with Tombow markers and cut her out.  I placed her on top of a pumpkin that I made using my Spellbinder Pumpkin dies and Distress Stains.  I popped this on top of a white panel that I embossed with the tree image.  I rubbed brown ink over it and then added lots of color with my stains.

For a little bling, I ran my glue pen over parts of the embossed tree and pumpkin and added a jeweled swirl that I picked up at our new Mighty Dollar store.  I found this great wide sheer orange polkadot ribbon and added a fluffy bow.  After taking the pictures I decided that it might look better with some pretty leaves along the bottom of the image so I think I will go back and do that.

Thanks for coming by today!!

Great card. I'm jealous cause I don't have hardly any girls in my stamp stash--but now that I have a granddaughter I'll have to buy some!
My favorite part of the card is that tree. Can you believe it? I adore it. And I always love purple with orange for the fall.
