Taylored Expressions October "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop

Happy Wednesday, everyone!!  Can you believe that it is the middle of the week already?!  I feel like time has flown so far this week!!

Today I am participating in the October "Blast from the Past" blog hop by Taylored Expressions!  I used the October Key Ingredients kit for it, which was a perfect fit! It is such a fun little kit to get in the mail every month, and even better...it is completely geared towards card makers!!

The theme for this blog hop is Trick or Sweet, but I had to fudge just a little bit.  I don't have a Halloween stamp set from Taylored Expressions, but I do have a fall/Thanksgiving theme set, and a sentiment set that allowed the card to be considered a Halloween card.  Nothing spooky, but still a pretty little pumpkin and sweet sentiment to match!  I have created it for some other challenges as well, and those will be linked at the bottom.  Here is what I came up with!
"You're the Pick of the Patch" supplies:
Cardstock/Paper/Brads/Ribbon: October Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit
Buttons: September Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit
Jewels: August Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Celebrate Life & A Year of Sweet Sentiments sets) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: leather)
Twine: May Arts
Border Punch: Fiskars (Upper Crest) 

Instructions:  Make card from cream cardstock.  Cut orange patterned paper slightly smaller, then adhere a block of cream cardstock across the middle of it and green leaf paper to the top.  Punch an upper crest border to white patterned paper, adhere below the cream cardstock and then cover the seam with orange ribbon.  Cut a banner edge to white patterned paper, and then stamp the sentiment to it.  Adhere to the left side of the cream cardstock block, going slightly over the left edge of the card.  Stamp the pumpkin directly to the card front, and to orange patterned paper.  Cut out orange pumpkin layer, and adhere to the card front.  Cut two green leaves from patterned paper and adhere to the bottom of the pumpkin.  Tie a bow from twine, thread a button around the middle and adhere to the top of the leaves.  Accent the pumpkin swirls with jewels.  Cut three pennants from brown patterned paper, and then adhere a brad to the middle of each one.  Thread the pennants onto a string of twine, and adhere to the upper left corner of the card.  Add two bows to each corner, and then accent the middles with small brad tops to finish.




Until later,
