Over at Stamp TV Gina K just had her September Stamp Release and along with that a challenge.
She’s challenging us to use the woodgraining Technique. She has posted several videos on how to use this technique and you can find them here.
So with that in mind here is my card for the September Stamp Release Challenge SEPT12WD.
I used my Martha Stewart Score Board and scored every 1/2 inch, then used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and a lighter brown ink from my stash and applied the ink directly to the cardstock.
I cut the Poppystamps Grand Madison Window die and the Grand Flower Box die with my Cuttlebug, then adhered a piece of yellow cardstock to the back of the window.
I used two Martha Stewart stamp sets and stamped the inside images in black and the pumpkins in orange,
I gave the pumpkins and the flower box some dimension by adding a few popdots.
The outside sentiment if from Pink By Designs’ A Haunting We Will Go stamp set.
The inside sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Ghostly Greetings.
The black cat is a Martha Stewart doubled sided sticker which I coated with Glitter Ritz Glitter.
Today I’m entering the challenge for Mix it Up Monday: STV12MON35 Sketch with a Twist over at Stamp TV…

For the focal image of this card I embossed the pumpkins from Inkadinkado All Hallow’s Eve stamp set with green embossing powder, then used Copics to color them in.
I cut out the pumpkins with my Spellbinders Classic Square and Inverted Square Dies then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. A couple of leaf brads and voila!
I took the pumpkin stamp and made a background piece, embossing them in green and inking with Vintage Photo.
The inside sentiment comes from Pink By Design Bracketful Stamp set. I embossed it and another pumpkin in green.
I then stamped the pumpkin again but this time cut out the front pumpkin and used it to hide the brads from the front of the card.
Can’t wait to see all the great projects!
I will also be linking this over at Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday, so stop on by and check it out.
