It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
Photo Week at Just Us Girls.
Maria as Host has chosen this gorgeous photo.

I love seeing the changing colours of the trees as it
doesn't happen in my neck of the 'bush'
As it is coming into that time of the year over the pond
it's perfect timing for all those 'fall' coloured creations.
As I had only recently got a new to me stamp/die set from
STAMPlorations called Oh So Grateful
ohsogratefulstampsdie I had to play with it especially as I
wanted to focus on the pumpkins in the truck.
I got out Tim's Oxide inks and inked away
on glossy card stock wiping it with a
paper towel then adding layers of
clear embossing powder. I tried the crackle effect
by putting it in the freezer but didn't quite work out
as good as I wanted.
My background was smooched and then I cut out part of the
inked birch tree die putting them behind my cut out oval die.
The sentiment as you can see is from the stamp set above
I love how motley it stamps.
Finished my card by attaching to orange card stock.
Hop over and see how our Guest Julie and the Team
were inspired by that gorgeous photo and
come join us in our Gallery this week.
So much happening for me in the next few weeks
so if I don't get to comment much I apologize.
Life will get back to normal after
all my family and friends from far and wide
 return to their own homes at the end of the month.

Thanks for stopping by

A lovely showcase of your new pumpkin set, Ina...the shimmery is soooo pretty! My card is rather a fail but...I learned plenty in the creating of it. Will try to redeem myself later in the week, once I'm back home. Right now, preparing to bundle up and head out to officiate a cyclo-cross race. Snow and rain...icky!

Fabulous inspiration Ina and great take on the inspiration photo. The glossy effect looks great and do so love the green birch die cut and the oval shape. Now that is interesting about crackling in the freezer! That's a new one on me x. Wonderful card and enjoy the time with family and friends x

What a fun 'crackled' effect you created on the pumpkin!

What a cool looking card! You always have the most creative creations! Love that new stamp set, but you made it even better with all your cool effects!

The freezer technique is a new one on me Ina, must investigate further!
Super take on the photo though. :)

Your pumpkins look amazing! I love how you used the Oxide inks, then clear embossed and did the cracked glass technique with beautiful results.

Shona Erlenborn said...

I think your crackled pumpkin is fabulous! I love the die cut in the background too! A lot of fun, fall elements going on in this car and I love them all!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Great inspired card. Have fun with your friends and family visiting! :)

Bobby said...

I just keep looking at your card, Ina. That pumpkin looks so cool with the mottled colors and the shine of ep. The birches are a wonderful background for it.

Nancy said...

I am right there with you Ina....I don't have the changing leaves in my neck of the woods either! Sure such I did though. Such a great card! Enjoy your family time!

That pumpkin looks so cool! Love that glossy shine and against that cool background. Great job with this week's challenge.

A very clever card, Ina! So many techniques. Love your pumpkin!
