Simon Says Stamp | Many Thanks Pumpkin

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the new Turkey Day stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp Cozy Hugs release which is out today. Being a vegetarian, the turkey images didn't really appeal to me that much, but I love the pumpkins in the set, so I thought I would do something a little different with it than as intended! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamped the larger of the two pumpkins from the Simon Says Stamp Turkey Day Stamp Set in the centre using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

I then made a mask for it from masking paper and placed it over the top. I stamped the second pumpkin either side of the first one and made a masks for them also. Using an ink blending brush, I blended Tim Holtz Speckled Egg Distress Ink above the pumpkins. 

The masks were removed and the pumpkins coloured with Copic markers, as well as the ground. I also added some shadows with a black Polycromos Pencil. 

The panel was then adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with foam tape. 

I took the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen dots and sparkles.

I was tempted to colour the pumpkins orange and create more of a Halloween card, but I thought they would look nice in aqua/teals too, so that's what I went with! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a lovely day!


  1. This is such a sweet little card! Love the pumpkins in aqua.

  2. The pumpkins look so sweet in the aqua colours and your black pencil adds so much depth and dimension to them. They literally glow! Beautiful CAS card Michelle - great way to use the smaller stamps in a set xx
