Fall Hansel with Pumpkins and a Video Tutorial

Hi all! Dana here to show you some adorable fall stamps from CC Designs. I used both Swiss Pixie Fall Hansel and Swiss Pixie Fall Scene stamped twice on either side to create this scene:

I wish I would've taken pics of the process! But I first stamped my Hansel on Mask It and cut it out.  You only need to do this once since you can save this with the stamp for future uses. I stamped Hansel as normal and then covered him with my mask it piece. Then I stamped both of the Fall scenes on either side.
Bonus with a warning.. lol! This is a very long tutorial but I share quite alot of info not just on coloring pumpkins but shading in general that really helps to make your images jump off the page.  If you don't have the time to watch now, youtube has a great feature that allows you to chose to "watch later".

Some of the other details that completed this card:
I used the Happy from SP and Company Christmas Emma Stamp set. I stamped the F A L L onto a EK Success Slim Edger Leaf Chain punch after cutting apart some of the leaves.
I created that look for the leaves by stamping my Distress Ink pads directly onto my work surface, which for me is a 1 foot square ceramic tile.   I misted the surface with plain water and then laid my paper down into the beaded up ink. I kept doing this until the paper was covered. I used a mix of Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey.
Here's the colors I used for my coloring:
Misc. supplies that I use on almost every card:

I hope you join our challenge this week and don't forget to share all those lovely copic creations with us on our Facebook page : )

Beyond gorgeous Dana!!! Those punkins are phenomenal!! xx

LOVED IT.... I must say normally I am use to people just coloring... at first I was like there is no way i could watch this whole thing through but listening to you while I made a card was actually very helpful. Especially because I never colored a pumpkin and I was afraid to color a pumpkin stamp I got because my oranges do not seem right.... thanks a bunch for the good tips and tutorial!

I thought I was the only one who LOVES, LOVES, LOVES coloring pumpkins! Great tutorial - keep them coming!

Another amazing video Dana! I love your coloring and I'm always in awe of your talent!!
