Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Pretty Pumpkins



It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!




I was inspired by the pretty colours in our inspiration this time so I began by sponging using some distress inks onto a white card panel. Then I stamped and die cut the pumpkins from the panel. I had a bit of a go at getting a photo that really captured the inking as it appears in real life.

Well the missing box of Stampin' Up inks, some NBUS Papertrey Ink stamp sets and my light tent appears to be the ONLY box that did not arrive to the new house in the move. My hubby went through every single remaining box last weekend and then a second time with me to make sure and still not there. He took it much better than I did even after I told him how much it would cost to replace. He is too easy going for his own good, but I'll keep him. Really the inks that I am the saddest about are the retired colours that I was able to find and purchase on eBay.




I hope you pop over to the Curtain Call and see what the rest of the team has come up with this time and to meet our two newest Design Team members--Leigh Penner and Lori Tecler.

So CAS and lovely, Tracey ... hint on that box: look under beds, and in all closets! of course, a little conversation with St. Anthony couldn't hurt - He's helped me out so many times!!

Love your sweet little pumpkins on this card. And, I am so sorry to hear about your missing box--which looks like it will remain missing. I can't imagine how sas you must be. You are lucky to have such a sweet hubby, and I hope you have fun shopping for all the replacement stuff.

Wonderful colors on your sweet pumpkins! Tracey, I am so sorry to hear about the lost box, and especially the retired inks! Our crafting tools and supplies are valuable in ways other people would never understand. I'm so glad your husband cares!

Sweet, simple fall card! Love it!

Your trio of pumpkins is darling :) Love that colour combo.

Darn on the box :( Can you check with the moving company to see if it showed up somewhere else? Have you tried SCS's Buy or Sell page to see if anyone is selling some of the colours you want? I have picked up a few sets I wanted that were retired there.

I am completely smitten with these pumpkins, love their shape!! Cute card Tracey! Well that really stinks that your box is nowhere to be found. I would search every nook and cranny again just to ease my mind!! Any chance it ended up at college with your kids LOL!!

Love the colors of your wonderful pumpkins--so fall! Sorry about the missing box. I would feel awful too. Your hubby is so sweet and helpful. Maybe you should post a list of the Stampin' Up colors in case someone out in blogland has some.
