Jack of All Trades...

Hey there Peeps!
I'm actually posting a little early because this is going to be a crazy, busy weekend around here.  I'm really looking forward to stamp camp here at my house on Saturday afternoon.  I'll be posting pics of the project soon.  I always feel like I "got it right" when I show a card or project to my husband and he says, "Wow!".  LOL  He gave me a "wow" when I showed him the Button Buddies project for camp this weekend!  Woot!  I'm really excited because I had such a great response to this camp that I had to split it up into two different classes.  So...between Saturday and Tuesday's classes I'll have a total of 20 stampers here!  That just rocks my socks!

Anyway...today's project is another one that I made with another one of my new sets from the new catalog  Here's a shocker...it's another Halloween project!  hahaha 



See...I told you....I love fall and Halloween!
 Now to look at Jack you're probably thinking...."um...ok...it's a pumpkin pocket card.  woo hoo".  

Well.....hold onto YOUR hats!


HA HA!!!  See!!  Jack lost his hat too!  I was trying to do something fun with the pocket card that would be a little "surprise" or maybe unexpected when you open it and this is what I came up with.
The pocket is made using Concord Crush card stock and the stars are stamped on it in Basic Black ink.  The card is made with a layer of Basic Black and a layer of Whisper White.  The pumpkins are stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink (go figure) and their faces, the greeting and the hat are stamped in Basic Black ink....and the star is in Daffodil Delight ink.
I popped the hat up on Stampin' Dimensionals at the very top...making sure to leave room for Jack to slide up underneath it when the card is back in the pocket.  
Clear as mud?  :-)

I was SO sad when SU! retired one of my old favorite stamp sets called "Carved and Candlelit".  I loved that set and practically wore it out!  Well...I'm a REALLY happy stamper now because they added a brand new pumpkin set in this year's catty called "Jack of All Trades" and it's a perfect addition to my stamp room!  I know I'll be making lots of projects with this set in the coming months.

Here's a photo of the pumpkin we (ok...mostly ME) carved last year for Halloween.  
The trick or treaters LOVED it. Even pumpkins can use a little pixiedust!
