Lots of Pumpkins

 After being gone most of the summer
and not being able to create much
I decided I need a boost to get me creating again
so decided to make a slimline card for the Mod Squad challenge.
They want you to have pumpkins as the focal point of your card.

I have seven pumpkins on my card so I hope that qualifies!
I used some very old and I mean OLD thing to create this card!

You remember when Stampin' Up had the stamp rollers?

Well, several years ago I decided to take all mine (and there were a lot)
off the rollers.  I bought some of the easy mount stamp board
and mounted each and every one of those roller stamps to it.
Even better with the TH stamp platform or the Misti
it makes it super easy to stamp them more then once if need be.

The ghost designer paper underneath is from SU and also an oldie
as I haven't purchased 12 x 12 paper in years.
The bat and the witch are old Martha Stewart punches.
The ink I used however was quite a challenge.
It is from Stampabilities and is a pigment ink
that just won't dry, even after heat setting it!

Now for some excitement!
There is a NEW, I believe one of a kind challenge
starting tomorrow, a monthly challenge and it is HALLOWEEN
ALL year long!

Check it out on the Two Old Bats Halloween challenge!

Oh wow, you re-mounted all those Stampin' Up Roller Stamps. Geez, that must have been labor intensive. Can I say, I just love this card. It's so colorful and creative!!! Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

Ohhh, so cute! I love that you stamped the background in orange. I know about the pigment ink. I can never get it to dry, so always have to heat emboss, but that's okay. So many fun oldies on your card! Cute punches and paper. I really wish I'd done at least one of my old SU rollers like this. I had a row of cats that was soooo cute. The rest of them I could live without, but those cats... darn. I'm really looking forward to the Halloween challenge!
