Glimmering Non Traditional Pumpkins: A Step by Step for 3 Fast Fall Cards

Time to share the October 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the month. Can you guess? It’s fall… so Pumpkins! YAY!!!

Have you seen the green, blue, gray and pink pumpkins? They are so fun. All over Pinterest and HomeGoods! Here is my inspiration. This 1st picture I snapped at HomegGoods. All the full sage color displays were out a few weeks ago but I was late in getting the shot.

So I headed over to Pinterest and this 2nd picture gives you the idea.

Making these cards way easier than you think! In fact, they are pretty easy. Glimmer first, then make all the cards! First, line all the Glimmer plate pieces up on the Glimmer Hot Foil Machine.

Next, glimmer a few sheets of card stock. I used FSJ Fresh Sage, Pool Play, Tin Pail and a blush colored cardstock I had in my stash. The copper color Hot Glimmer foil is included in this months kit!

I cut a big piece of foil and quickly foiled all the pieces. Because I am die cutting all the images, there is no need to worry about over foiling. You can see on the corners I over foiled .

Next, die cut. Bummer there is no die for the big pumpkin so you will need to fussy cut it. It is beautiful and so worth the effort.

Lets make the cards! Here is my first one. I love the woodgrain in the Barn Wall embossing folder. The touch of copper cardstock I had left over from a card kit. Tin pail cardstock is the card base.

Stripe embossing folder for this second card with copper layers and a touch of thread.

Last, is the Bright Days embossing folder. In my opinion, adding a touch of texture with embossing folders makes the pumpkins pop!

Time to get glimmering! The Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month makes receiving new plates every month fun, affordable and keeps me using this tool.
