Gerber Daisy accented Pumpkin

Who doesn't love pumpkins during the fall??  If my family would allow them, I would be happy having pumpkins out all year long!  It is hard to put into words - there is just something about them that I just adore.  When I was in the hospital, I was not allowed to have any live "plants" in my room, and while I was okay without flowers, having to go through the fall season without pumpkins made my heart sad!  My favorites are the Cinderella style and the white pumpkins so when I found this beautiful white pumpkin, I couldn't wait to "accent" it with my favorite embellishments!

All that being said, I also adore Gerber Daisies and thought these two paired quite nicely together!  I used our Flower Market Cricut Collection to cut the Daisies and layered them alternating the sides of the cardstock - one with the darker side and then the next one with the lighter side.  Such a classic pairing in my mind!

I used the Clear Shimmer Brush, the Rose Gold Sequins and the Diamond Stickles to add glitter and sparkle and then cut and stamped a few tags for the finishing touch.

I invite you to watch this video to see how I created the pumpkin step-by-step:

The Autumn Blessings Stamp set was used to create the tags.  This is available as a stand alone 
stamp set or as a Stamp Set/Thin Cut Combo.

There is also a pre-cut, custom kit, that can be ordered in my shop at:  The kit includes: a pack of Rose Gold Loose Sequins, the balance of sheets of Desert Rose, Espresso and Scarlet cs (about 1/2 sheet left of each after flowers were cut), 2 full sheets of Desert Rose Glitter Paper, 1/4 sheet of Desert Rose Glitter Paper (left after cutting the flowers out), pre-cut & pre-stamped tags and pumpkins and a piece of bulk ribbon to complete the project.

Make it Sassy!
