DeNami October Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the DeNami October Fall Blog Hop!  It is so much fun to participate in the hop and also see all the fabulous cards the other talented artists create. 

If you are following along the hop you have just arrived here from the talented Britta Swiderski's blog.  If you have gotten turned around or lost, you may return to the beginning at DeNami's Blog.

Your next stop is at the blog of fabulous Wendy Harrill.

When:  The blog hop starts on October 9 at 6 AM, PST.  However, you have until October 10, 2011, 11:59 p.m. PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize.)

Why: To be inspired by cards featuring DeNami Design Fall-themed stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design Website.

Prizes:  We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to the DeNami website!  We'll be giving away on gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

Now on to the fun!  For this simple but eye-catching card I used the Leaf Accent stamps to create the stamped background on white.  The pumpkin was stamped, colored and cut out.  The leaves were punched from a variety of punches I have collected and layered under the pumpkin, which was popped with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped and punched with Stampin' Up's Word Window punch.

After the card was assembled I decorated the pumpkin with Orange Peel and Lime Green Stickles.  This basic design can be used for a variety of cards. Give it a try!
