Welcome to the Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring PUMPKIN PIE! This weeks colour comes from the Regals Collection and is a beautiful rich Orange.
Initially I thought of Halloween with the orange, and then of course American Fall, but decided to go on more of a Spring tangent - plus I had a couple of sets of Stamps that I really wanted to use!
My first project again uses the gorgeous "Painted Seasons" Stamp Set before it retires.
I decided that it would be the perfect set to do some masking. I cut out 2 flower masks so that I could put those gorgeous flowers all around the outside of the card, and add the leaves to look like they are behind. The colours used are Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody. The leaves are stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Call Me Clover.
I placed a 1/4" strip of Pumpkin Pie across the centre just to break up the background. Using a sentiment from the "Flowering Desert" Stamp Set it was punched out using the Story Label Punch from the Sale-A-Bration Co-ordination catalogue. I added a few die cut leaves to tuck behind the sentiment, a few Rhinestones and the card is complete. Really happy with how this card turned out.
My second project features the "All That You Are" Stamp Set. I have been really keen to use this set and thought the bright orange of Pumpkin Pie would be perfect.
After stamping the image with Memento Black Ink I used the Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends to colour the flowers. I don't have the matching framelits, so had to fussy cut all the flowers on the right of the card. It wasn't too difficult as they are fairly simple flowers. The actual stamp itself only has the one open flower, but I wanted to add some more.
The stem and leaves are coloured with Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends, and Daffodil Delight for the small flowers. A little splatter on the background, a touch of Poppy Parade, and a whole lot of Wink of Stella and my card was complete. Of course I added the little butterflies from the Butterly Gala Stamp Set punched out with the Butterfly Duet Punch as I had them laying around, left over from a different project, but thought they looked perfect on this card.
