A colourful season & one of my favourites! I get to visit my grandchildren in the USA - enjoy all the beautiful colours of the season with a New England  fall and,as an added bonus, here are all the fabulous craft stores to go browsing in because we crafters never ever NEED more stash!

Anyway, waffle over, here's a tag to share with you - my current favourite pumpkin that I've stamped, coloured & fussy cut. 

I started with a corrugated piece of cardboard that's had a light brushing with gesso, some strips of double sided tape to which I've added an assortment of leaves that have been punched or die cut from paper scraps & paint chips. I stamped & coloured a toadstool, stuck the pumpkin on using 3D foam pads and also a polystyrene 1/2 acorn & an acorn base that has golden micro beads + glossy accents . I've die cut the letters (TH) for harvest @ coloured with promarkers- some ribbon & threads in shades of yellow & orange to finish it off.



  1. What a fabulously vibrant tag - I love all your tiny leaves in all the colours of the autumn rainbow. I definitely envy your regular trips to the US - crafty goodies seem so much more reasonably priced.. and the choice!!!

    Thank you for your lovely comment over at The Artistic Stamper, and to answer your question: yes, it's a 6x6 stencil. All mine are, which is why I never think to specify, sorry!

    Hope you have a wonderful time with your grandchildren.
