Stamping Note Cards - Halloween and Pumpkins

It is Apple Harvest Festival time at Monroe's Orchard. I am blessed to be back again this year!
At my tent you will find stamping crafts, coloring activities, and fun games.
I try to fit in a story time during the day too.

This year I am selling note cards made with cut erasers and stamping. This is the same style of illustration I used for my new book, MORE. MORE. MORE! DANDELIONS.

One design features three jack o'lanterns sitting on a fence.
I wrap up six cards with a bow and sell them for $5.
For another design, I had the idea of PUMPKIN LOVE with two pumpkins and their vines intertwined to form a heart. I sketched the drawing in pencil and traced with black ink.
I made a copy of my sketch and colored the shapes I saw with different colors. Then, I cut out the shapes and traced them onto erasers. The erasers were cut out and would be used as my stamps.
I lined up all my cut eraser stamps and tested them out. I was very happy with the first illustrations.
All of the cards are hand-stamped and signed. I do not make copies. Therefore, the lucky person you choose to send this card is getting a piece of my original artwork.
Here is a time lapse video of the stamping:

  2. The feast of most Saints is tracked to the 8th hundred years, when Pope Gregory III (who was simply Syrian, and the previous non-European Pope until Pope Francis' election in 2013) widened the festival to add all saints as well as all martyrs. He also relocated the observance day from May 13 to November 1, dedicating it as a period to honor all saints and martyrs, hence the name All Saints Day.

  3. It is also legal for stores to charge a replacement fee for lost cards, and they do not require stores to give cash back for small balances on cards.Giant teddy bears

  4. This place is a gem in this wasteland of small bars. Came to venue New York here on a Saturday night around 9:30, not too crowded at that time. Ordered 2 beers and fries and the total was around $16.
