Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 38 – Pumpkin Pie
Tonight’s colour is one I am really not a fan of. I find orange a really tough colour to work with, but I guess that is part of our challenge, right?!!! I have used the Garden Greenhouse Bundle for my card tonight.
The Pumpkin Pie card base is 21cm x 14.8cm, scored in half. I dry embossed the front with the Pretty Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). The next layer is Basic White and I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Using my Blending Brushes and Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks I gently added Pumpkin Pie ink (although I think a little Poppy Parade was still on my brush). I wrapped some Soft Succulent Satin Shimmer Ribbon across the front and adhered to the back of this layer with Stampin’ Seal, then glued it to the card front.
I die cut the scalloped layer in Basic White card using the Scalloped Contour dies. I stamped the greenery in Soft Succulent ink in the background and some flowers in Pumpkin Pie. The greenhouse is die cut in Basic White for the top and Vellum underneath. This was adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
TIP: with liquid glue, apply a small amount as it goes a long way. Let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes translucent before adhering to your card. It will still be very sticky but avoids glue oozing out and going where you don’t want it!
I die cut some of the foliage in Basic White card and coloured them with Soft Succulent Blends Combo Markers. I stamped some flowers and used the coordinating die to cut them out. These are all glued to the front of the greenhouse.
Here is a closer look.
The sentiment is stamped on Pumpkin Pie card with Versamark ink. White Emboss Powder was added then melted with my Heat Tool. I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut it out.
The scalloped layer and sentiment are added to the card on Dimensionals.
On the inside, I simply added some Basic White card and stamped some foliage and orange flowers in the bottom corner. The envelope was stamped the same!
