Creating a Scene with Partially Stamped Images - Video!

What do hot air balloons, cocoa, and cookies for Santa have in common?  Pumpkins, of course!
The bunny and mouse shop keepers are selectively stamped out of a hot air balloon, the mice were originally reaching for cookies, and the pumpkin stand was created from a cocoa stand.  Everything was colored with Copics, fussy cut, and adhered to the gray card stock textured with an embossing folder.

Here is a video showing how the card was created.  You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel:

Stamps: Purple Onion Designs Up and Away, Sweets, Nutmeg, Cocoa Stand, Door Decor #1, Fair Accessories, Milk Set, Gathered Pumpkins, Everyday Blurbs, 4x6 large solid clear stamp
Dies:  MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX, Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder
Copics:  C00,0,1,2,3,5, W00,0,1, R00, E07,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35,37,39, 40,41,42,43, YR04,18,35, YG 63,67, Y21
