pumpkin time…

Hello everyone. It’s time to let out a big sigh in the southwest as cool weather is on its’ way! October more often resembles summer here in the desert, but the mornings begin to cool which means the days will be moderating too. Each year when I turn the calendar page to October, I think about autumn in New England, where the trees put on the most magnificent display of color. I think about the sound of leaves under my feet and pumpkins piled up by the door…


Where I live, pumpkins need to be displayed indoors if they’re to last awhile! That thought lead me to ferret out two old jar and filler stamps. Pumpkins in a jar seemed ridiculously comical, and as absurd as my autumn dreams in the desert…


I did some quick (a bit too quickly as I can see) Copic coloring, taking my  colors from this great inspiration board….


Some hand dyed seam binding that I had made some time ago, made a nice triple loop topper along with a small stamped tag, a golden daisy (O.K., it’s kind of similar to an autumn blooming aster) and two, embossed paper leaves finished off the cluster…


I will list my supplies below. Happy October to you!

  • I absolutely love this card! A wonderful autumnal collection in a jar and so beautifully done!

  • Gorgeous card Rebecca and I think you did a fabulous job with the coloring!! I just bought our first pumpkin yesterday…and of course we are having warm temps (odd for us at this time of the year) so not sure how long it will last…lol! Fabulous card!

  • Truly inspirational and so chic. Love it!

  • Absolutely STUNNING! I adore jars on cards, nothing ridiculous about pumpkins in one, I put everything in them lol I think your coloring is wonderful! Love that bit of fiber accent and your ribbon and flower cluster as well as that sweet little tag. LOVE it ALL!

  • Wonderful Fall filled jar!

  • Gorgeous! I Love your Fall jar creation Rebecca!

  • Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Rebecca! LOVE the idea of pumpkins in a jar and the way you designed the top of the jar looks like those flowers are coming out of the jar too! FANTASTIC design! Also LOVE that gorgeously hand died binding … PERFECT! What wonderful inspiration Rebecca! We are so blessed to have you on our DD team!!

    Rebecca, this is beautiful. The mix of papers with the lace is the perfect background for your jar of pumpkins and acorns. The bow and flower are the perfect finish.

  • Beautiful card Rebecca! I love the jar and the beautiful bow and flower.

  • Rebecca, this is just so beautiful and colorful and fanciful. I’m particularly fond of the green acorns. We hardly ever show them green, but how pretty! Your pumpkins in the jar aren’t too absurd, though. Look at that tiny pumpkin in the cup you see in the inspiration board. Here the pumpkins last better outside. Even though our summers aren’t too hot I still look forward to fall. There’s just something about the change in the light and those golden leaves scattered across the ground.

  • Rebecca, I didn’t see another way to contact you, but I wanted to say “thank you” for the pretty birthday card you sent. It made my birthday even more special!
