Autumn Harvest

Don't put away your Halloween sets quite yet. Pumpkins, moons, and scarecrows are great for the Thanksgiving holiday as well. These seasonal icons
work nicely for birthday cards, thank-you notes, congratulations or just simple stationery.
Here is the pumpkin from the Autumn Harvest stamp set used to make a Thanksgiving card. The pumpkin is Tangerine Tango with a Garden Green stem. Since we don't have Tangerine Tango markers, I used a blender pen to apply Tangerine Tango ink directly to the rubber. Use ink from a Re-Inker or squeeze an ink pad while closed to press a bit of ink into the lid of the case then pick the ink up with a blender pen to apply to the rubber stamp.
The colors of this card are a bit non-traditional but they work for me. The card base is Baja Breeze. The printed paper is from the Hawaii Papaya Designer Series Papers and is Tangerine Tango & white. The DSP is accented by Chocolate Chip cardstock and a knot of Chocolate Chip 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon.
