Welcome to week forty one of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop.
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Pumpkin Pie from the Regals family.
SALE-a-bration ends next Wednesday night so I decided to showcase the adorable SALE-a-bration Thanks a Bunch stamp set once again, this time combining it with the Easter Bunny stamp set.
My card was inspired by a gorgeous card made by a very talented German demonstrator called Mandy Pätzold, who combined these two stamp sets and popped her rabbit in a teacup – I’ve placed my rabbit in the wooden basket from the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set instead.
There are only three colours on this card: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crumb Cake. For all these colours I’ve used them at full strength as well as stamped off once for a lighter tone and I’ve used both the dark and the light Stampin’ Up! blends.
The larger carrots and carrot leaves and fernery from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set are stamped and fussy cut with paper snips. The smaller carrots and the bunny rabbit are from the Easter Bunny stamp set and the basket from the Cheerful Basket Stamp Set are stamped in Memento and coloured with Stampin’ blends.
I’m not going to lie, there is a bit of fuss cutting in this card, however I find it very relaxing. Do you enjoy fussy cutting? My top tip for curves and angles is to turn the paper, rather than your paper snips.
I’ve roughed up the side edges of the top Basic White layer using my paper snips and added a simple Pumpkin Pie bow from the Three Twine Combo Pack.
The “Hey, there” sentiment comes from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set – this is a great all purpose sentiment that allows me to use the card for a variety of reasons, depending on what I decide to stamp inside.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
