Cloud9 October Blog Hop


Happy Tuesday, friends!  It's time for the Cloud9 Blog Hop!


Here is the inspiration photo for this month's hop.  You can link up your creation at the Cloud9 Blog anytime before 10 AM EST on October 12 for a chance to win a gift certificate to WPlus9 Design Studio or a spot as a Guest Designer for next month's hop!

I actually dusted off my Silhouette Cameo to cut a door for my card, inking the edges a bit and adding a bronze brad for a doorknob.

I used four different WPlus9 stamp sets:  the pumpkins and leaf from Season of Thanks, the bird from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, the "Halloween" from A Pocketful: Halloween, and the "happy" from A Pocketful.

I wanted to decorate my pumpkins like the ones in the inspiration photo, so I "kissed" the inked stamps with polka dots and chevrons to add a pattern to each.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Kraft), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Season of Thanks, Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, A Pocketful:  Halloween, A Pocketful), Lawn Fawn (Chevron Backdrops), Papertrey Ink (Background Basics:  Polka Dots)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Tangerine Tango, Peach Parfait), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Papertrey Ink (Chamomile Tea Dye)
Tools:  Silhouette Online Store (Card Christmas Door cut file)
Other:  ribbon, brad

I hope you'll join us this month and link up your creation for a chance to win!  Stop by the Cloud9 Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the team and to view the gallery.

Your card is such a perfect interpretation of the challenge photo. I love how you created the pumpkins so similar, with that adorable crow. And the door frame is fantastic! Such a great card. ;-)
