Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice!

Hello sweet peeps! Okay, raise your hand if you can't wait until fall when Pumpkin Spice Season starts!! Yes, I know I raised my hand before I even finished asking the question. The only thing better than a pumpkin spice latte would be a calorie-free pumpkin spice latte. Can't they please invent that? Pretty please? 

Since the season is here, why not add a little bit of fall flavor to our card making? I say YES! Let's do it! That brings us to this week's Creative Confetti Challenge that I hosted earlier this week over on the Power Poppy blog! Check it out! 

Want to know more on how to play along? Simply click HERE! I also have some suggestions there on some "spicy" sets you can ink up to play along with us! ;-) I'm not sure you won't have visions of pumpkin spice swirling in your heads (or a mug) before this challenge is over!

Want to see my take on this tasty challenge?

When I dreamt up this challenge, I knew I had to use Power Poppy's brand new stamp set, Fortunes of Fall! I just love the vignettes in this set and the pumpkin trio was pretty much perfect for a Pumpkin Spice Challenge! I started by stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa and then grabbed my Copic markers to color this image up. 

Here's a close up look at this colored up image....

To mat it all up, I reached for shades of olive, kraft (to bring out the nutmeg color) and orange (for my pumpkin) and ta da! It's a wrap! I added some twine, a button and some fun die cut accents and that, my friends, is it! Remember to use the link above to hop on over to the Power Poppy blog to read up on all the rules and FUN! Everyone who plays along gets their name thrown into the hat for a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop!   Just capture the Pumpkin Spice "feels" and get those fingers inky! 

Want to see what one of my fellow Bloomies whipped up this week? Check out the fabulous....

Until next time!

Since I love all things Power Poppy it's hard to pick a favorite, but this stamp is surely among them. You always create such beautiful cards with fun layouts, Julie, and your coloring is inspiring!
