Pumpkins and Candy Corn - Yum!


So we're halfway through the week and halfway through the release countdown for the September release at The Craft's Meow!

The Craft's meow

We've peeked at Vintage Clocks, we've adored Lovely Ovals but we've not yet celebrated the season. No, not Christmas (you really think that I'm that well organised with my crafting?!) but my favourite season of them all, autumn!

Today we've got two super sweet sets up for sneaky peeks: 'Fall Blessings' and 'Fall with Fibi and Lilly'. Both sets are super cute and features sweet images with Halloween and Thanksgiving in mind.

For my first project I inked up 'Fall Blessings':

I couldn't resist the lovely pumpkin in this set - it gave me the perfect excuse to sit and colour :)

Next up, 'Fall with Fibi and Lilly'

happy halloween
FYI: I added the lines around the candy corn to add some movement/fun to them :)

Although the set focuses on the characters, Fibi and Lilly, I decided to focus on the candy corn image and stamped it repeatedly across a strip of card. I do love me some candy corn - it first hit my taste buds a couple of years ago and although it's not super easy to get hold of over here, I definitely recommend it. Yum!

Now I've only featured a small element of each stamp set we're previewing today. Be sure to check out the rest of the TCM DT too of course!  

I dunno about you but I'm craving a sweet treat now! But before I dash to get a sweet fix, I'd better tell you how you could win one of these sets for yourself today. Simply leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PST tonight and a random winner will be selected for each set!

Thanks so much for visiting here today - I always appreciate your visits!

Catch ya later!

Love the bright and cheery pumpkin card with it's great coloring! I love the dancing or swaying candy corn! I have a friend who adores candy corn and she would love me to make a card with this set! I actually found a a handpainted canvas of a giant candy corn and this would be a great card to go with it! I can't believe I actually paid $14 for the painting but hey, it will make her laugh as it did me when I saw it in the window!
