Grandpa’s Ride for 100 Moons Creative

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! There’s definitely a chill in the air so with Halloween rapidly approaching, it’s time to sneak in a few autumn cards before I go back to my Christmas cards. When I saw today’s featured stamps by Barb Rogers for RubberMoon, I thought that those pumpkins would look perfect riding in the back of Grandpa’s truck. So I did a little stamping magic using masking paper so that I could combine the two images into one. I’ve linked the supplies for today’s project with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

  • Stamp truck on white Copic friendly cardstock with Copic friendly black ink.
  • Stamp truck on stamping mask paper and fussy cut the image.

Boo Cat and Pumpkins by Power Poppy

WELCOME BACK! Look at me! Two days in a row! And that’s because – you guessed it! – I have another card from the Fall Digital Blitz from Power Poppy. Before I forget, Marcella is offering a special sale on all in-stock stamps, dies and digital sets: $5 off if you spend $15 or more. Coupon code shown here is expires October 14th so don’t delay!

Today I’m featuring the Boo Cat and Pumpkins Digital Stamp Set, which includes the image seen here as well as additional images and sentiments. The cat and pumpkin image is also available in the Feeling Fall Stamp Set if digis are not your thing.

Once again I kept the design simple. I printed the image and sentiment on Hammermill paper and then trimmed it with the largest die in the LF Zig Zag set. How’s that for clean and simple?
