Today I'm hopping along with Gina K Designs and Thermoweb. I had so much fun making this card. It's a bit abstract but super fun and I'm all about that Pumpkin Spice Latte. It's one of my favorite Fall treats. I used the Gnome Festive Fall stamp set and coordinating dies to create this masterpiece.

For my card, I cut up a piece of Neenah 110 pound cardstock into six unequal pieces. I made a diagram to show the sizes of my pieces but you can cut them anyway you like. I then started to decorate each piece. The first square I stamped the leaf/coffee bean image.
I think it's a leaf, but I'm using it as a coffee bean. I stamped it several times using Gina K's Charcoal Brown ink. I continued stamping those onto the rectangle below. I then stamped the leaf image onto the largest rectangle using that same brown ink and also, Tomato Soup, and Honey Mustard. I also stamped those onto the middle rectangle in the same row.
The lowest row I stamped the pumpkin image coming off both sides, once in Honey Mustard and once in Charcoal Brown. Leaving a space to pop up an additional pumpkin in the middle.
I then used Thermoweb's White Latte Flock transfer sheets to make my pumpkin. I used the pumpkin die from the Gnome Festive Fall die set to make a fun touchy feely pumpkin in the lower right hand corner square. I added some of the smaller pieces like the leaf and the pumpkin top from regular cardstock.
I also used the flock sheets to cut out the lower left square and then I cut an additional 1 inch square in Gina K's Lucky Clover cardstock. This is where I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.
I also cut out a coffee cup and some beans to add to the left side of the card. Then I cut some leaves to add to the right side of the card. I used a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares to arrange my squares and the elements that I added to them giving the card lots of dimension. I eyeballed it. I know that isn't what you want to hear, but that's what I did. I tried to make the space around the squares as even as possible.
I hope that I've inspired you to create something today.
