A halloween card

Been quite a while since I posted here.
A much needed vacation in India.. Weeks spent with family... In another world, with every minute filled with happiness and fun..
Once back, I couldnt get back to cards, with work piled up..
Slowly, found my calling again, and started now...

With Halloween approaching, wanted to make one for my little one.
Missed quite a bit in the paper crafting world in the last few months.

Loved the stampendous, pumpkin stamps.
But couldnt wait to get it.
So set off to make my own.
Diecut the pumpkins, colored and stamped the flourishes from Stampendous on them.
Then distressed them, didnt quite like bright orange against the eerie setting I had.
Popped a few 3-d circle dots and the pumpkins now pop out .

Supplies Used :
Sizzix pumpkins2
Orange gelatos
Stampendous clear stamps

Another first using the Hero Arts Stamp & Framelit set

My first card, using this Hero Arts - Sizzix  Stamp & Die cut set.
Now in love with the set.. 
(Will write more eod)
The CAS Colors and Sketches #31 had the perfect inspiration sketch.
ABNH asking for a card using my favorite Hero Arts stamp :-)
Diecut divas welcoming summer with flowers..
Didnt need any more reason to play with this beauty.. 
Kept it one layer since HA's current challenge is one layer cards.

The sketch with flowers, stuck in my head, and the different sizes of the flowers was the key to this skletch.
Initially planned to keep it plain stamped, but then, felt that it wasn't doing justice to both the sketch and beauty of the flowers and so die cut a couple of more stamped flowers and gave some dimension and more interest.
