Pumpkin Pie Driving By & Island Vibe card – AWH Colour Creations

Pumpkin Pie Driving By & Island Vibe card – AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week 38 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Pumpkin Pie from the Regals family.

Here in Australia, SALE-a-bration has been extended to 16th March, so I decided to create a Pumpkin Pie card that uses two of the FREE stamp sets – Driving By and Island Vibes – to create a happy tropical card.

I was also inspired by Tina Gillespie’s use of the long die from the Suit and Tie Dies to create a road for her Poppy Parade card last week, so I decided to CASE her “road” for my Pumpkin Pie card.

Can you see the lovely two-toned green on the palm stamp from Island Vibes? That’s created using the “kissing technique”. I inked up my stamp with Granny Apple Green ink before using a sponge dauber to add a few Bermuda Bay highlights. It’s such an easy way to add extra colour and interest to your stamps.

I couldn’t resist adding a another two orange combis to the inside of the card either and a sentiment from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set. Gotta love an orange combi van!

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri – I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!

CASEing the Catty #353 with Driving By, Sunshine & Rainbows, Rainbow of Happiness and the Cloud Punch

CASEing the Catty #353 with Driving By, Sunshine & Rainbows, Rainbow of Happiness and the Cloud Punch

Today I’m joining in the #CTC353 challenge, which is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I decided to CASE this card on page 2 of the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

Although I CASED the slimline format, the rainbows and the Pool Party/Basic Black/Basic White colour combination, my card ended up looking very different to the card I CASED!

When my order arrived this week I realised that this FREE Sunshine and Rainbows SALE-a-bration DSP has a DSP design that co-ordinates with the new Cloud punch – how cool is that!

I wanted to use as many of these gorgeous clouds as possible on my card so I didn’t waste the partial clouds on the edges of the DSP. I punched these clouds out too and used them on the sides and the top of my card. I also used my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blend! to colour in some of the clouds.

As well as the FREE Sunshine and Rainbows SALE-a-bration DSP I used another SALE-a-bration product on this card – the adorable “Driving By” Stamp set.

This FREE stamp set is the perfect set to try two awesome stampin’ techniques: reverse stamping and paper piecing. I’ve paper pieced the combi van on the left using a different Pool Party DSP from the Sunshine and Rainbows DSP and then I used my silicone mat to the reverse the combi image so I could have the other combi travelling in the other direction on the other side of the road.

The road is a 1″ strip of Basic Black cardstock – the road lines are hand drawn using the Chalk Marker.

The Sunshine and Rainbows DSP coordinates with the Rainbow of Happiness bundle.

I’ve used the “Rainbow of Happiness” stamp set from this bundle to stamp my rainbow in non-traditional colours to match the DSP clouds and the road: Basic Black, Pool Party and Gray Granite.

I used some more of the partial clouds to decorate the inside of the card and couldn’t resist adding another little combi van, this time stamped directly onto my card.
