DIY Pumpkin Lover Shaker Card
Autumn is here. The season offers wonderful warmth - from the colors, to the smells, and the warm soothing drinks.
When I saw Sassy & Crafty’ s adorably delicious Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set, my comfort food brain jumped for sweet joy. Pumpkin spice? Yum - perfect for creating fun and cheery shaker cards to celebrate the warmth of Autumn and the fun side of Halloween.
The background of the card was created using Sassy & Crafty's Marshmallow stencil with various distress inks layered with candy corn colors (a variety of orange andyellows) - another of autumn's yummy treats.
Here's a closer look at the delicious stamp set. Donuts? Pie????? Latte? oh my!
The shaker and Buttons Galore's Shaker Mix

Coloring the Stamps
The stamps were colored using water colored pencils from Faber-Castell. I stamped the images using Spellbinders Black Licorice Ink Pad and a stamping platform ( I like the Hero Arts - MISTI ). I use the platform because I can keep stamping until my image is perfect.
The stamped sentiment inside the shaker says," I never met a PUMPKIN I didn't like...Pie....Latte....donuts. This sentiment is part of the Sassy & Crafty Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set.
Thank you & happy crafting!
