Tim Holtz Pumpkin Patch Thanksgiving Fall Card


Today I'm sharing a compilation card of oldie but goodie Tim Holtz products for this pumpkin patch design.  I find that I've had to be quite creative with coming up with sentiment ideas since I didn't have any fall quotes or dies.  This time I reached for the Shadow Script #2 die and paired it with a tiny stamped banner using $1 bin alphabets.


I shared the 1 minute video below on Instagram (@sewpaperpaint) to show how easy it is to ink up a huge batch of leaves for fall cardmaking.  I used these leaves as the base for my arrangement, then layered with a twig cut from the Fall Foliage leaves set, a crackled Scroll painted with Peeled Paint Distress Paint, a handmade flower from the Tattered Florals die and some sisal fibers.  I shared a tutorial on making flowers HERE if you're interested.



My background was stamped with Tim's (Mesh &) Linen stamp.  I inked it with several colors and repeat stamped it until I was happy.  I spritzed it with water to let it blend a little and help the colors pop.  


The Pumpkin Bigz die was embossed with the Woodgrain Texture Fade and sponged with Vintage Photo.  I added a leaf from the Funky Foliage dies and a loopy bakers twine bow.  I hope you're inspired to play with your goodies and mostly to be thankful today for our many blessings.  So what are you thankful for today?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments.  Hugs, Autumn
