The Shabby Tea Room #138!

Hello my sweet stampy friends and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #138 - 'Hey Pumpkin!'!  Rebecca is our creative host this week and she has chosen the this adorable photo for inspiration!  Rebecca asks that we create a card or project based on the colors in the photo and include a flower!

I can't even begin to tell you how much FUN I had this week creating this card!  It has 'got to be' one of my all-time favorites ... so sweet with all the Paper Sweeties elements added to the scene -- perfectly delicious and all 3-D ... glittery, sparkly, adorable and FUN!  

I began by stamping Emma on vanilla card stock, coloring in her face and arms with SU! pastel chalks and then coloring her hair with Prisamark pencils and gamsol -- I added rosey cheeks with chalk and then gave her a scarecrow nose with markers.  I cut her out and adhered a couple of dimensionals to her backside.  I adhered two strips of Espresso grosgrain ribbon for the straps on her bodice and then created a puffy 'scarecrow' gown from Webster's Pages netting!  A running stitch along the top of three snipetts of netting allowed me to create the gathers.  I tied the dress onto Emma's little body with some satin ribbon and then stamped the sunflower from the Stand Add-on #2 set for her to hold in her hands!   The hat was stamped using the Best Witches! set -- onto patterned paper, cut out and glued on!

 To create the scene, I stamped three clouds from the Happy Fall Ya'll set onto polka dotted patterned paper and cute them out - using dimensionals on the third one to make it 'pop' out!  I stamped the cornstalk and two pumpkins from the Stand Add-on #3 set - cornstalk on yellow patterned paper, cut and adhere ... pumpkins on vanilla card stock and then colored with Prisma pensils & gamsol -- then sugared with glitter - yum!! 

I created some rolling hills with a couple of pieces of green patterned papers - dimensionals in between the layers to create some more texture.  And then to finish my little card, I stamped a sentiment from the Sweeties Wagon set onto a banner from Banner Wishes and adhered it to the card vertically for a little twist!

What do ya' think???  The photo does not do this 3-D card justice ... it's so dimensional and textured IRL :)  These would make A-DOR-ABLE fall party invitations!!!  Or how about a fall birthday?  So sweet ... Emma makes a very cute scarecrow -- she's ready for Halloween or a fall party!!
