Spice it Up!

Greetings! So glad you could stop by today. I have the privilege of being the Featured Designer for this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge and I am THRILLED! It's about time to wrap up autumn and slide right into winter...but first, we'll finish off the season of #PSL, pumpkin spice lattes, with a bang.

Here is this week's challenge board and it's loaded with warm-n-cozy autumn icons:

I had a hard time selecting just one, but I finally decided on the left column: Pumpkin, Askew, and Rustic.

I'm quite fond of all things pumpkin, so you can imagine how giddy I get when the season o' pumpkins begins! This is my card -- an ode to pumpkin spice lattes!

I used Lawn Fawn's new mini set called Pumpkin Spice and its coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment onto Taylored Expressions' new Sentiment Stacker 2 die set, which I totally adore. And yes, there's a Sentiment Stacker 1 :-)

I created my background by stamping the mugs slightly askew in VersaMark ink on a kraft card base. I stamped the mugs again on white, then colored and die cut them. I added clear Wink of Stella on the whipped cream because, well, whipped cream is kind of a star! I popped up the front mug and added a few more rustic elements - natural jute twine and a coconut button.

I'm thankful you decided to stop by and I hope you'll try your hand at this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Wishing you and autumn a fond farewell for now...

Pin It!
