Just a Hello

Hello and welcome! The card I'm sharing today was made for three challenges - Inspired By, As You See It and Color Throwdown.

I'm kind of on a kick of pairing of white and ivory/cream, so that's what I used on my card again today. Plus it worked so well with the color challenge colors. I hope you guys aren't tired of seeing it yet 😄.

I was indeed inspire by the white pumpkin photo, so I pulled out a cute fall border stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh.  I trimmed a panel of white cardstock to 3" x 4", then stamped the leafy image on the bottom and the pumpkins above, leaving room for the strip holding the sentiment.  Copic markers were used to color the images, then the gray strip layered across.  The sentiment was stamped and die cut then added to the strip with thin foam tape.

The base was made from the same gray cardstock, then an embossed panel of ivory was adhered directly to the base after adding the strip of textured Pumpkin Pie paper.  The colored panel was added with thin foam tape and I finished things up with some white enamel dots and an orange enamel heart! Quick and easy!

Thanks for visiting, I always appreciate it so much.  I hope you're having a great weekend - take care and stay safe!

Lovely card, Stef. As great as the white pumpkins are, it's that gorgeously coloured leafy strip that really steals the scene in my eyes. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.

This is so cute! I was looking for the patterned paper source when I realized it was part of the same PPP set, and you colored it in! (Although that should not have surprised me because you are an awesome "colorer"!!) So very pretty and you can never go wrong with a row of pretty pumpkins like that! Thanks for playing with As You See It this week! And now I might have to go check out that stamp set--it might just jump into my cart!

I adore white pumpkins - and this little chorus line of cuties is as precious as can be! Beautifully shaded!
Thanks so much for playing cards with IB again - I'll never tire of that either - wink!

Oh, these pretty pumpkins all in a row make such an impact in white with lots of shading. I love cream and white together too, this is beautiful!

This is a real eye pleaser, Stef! I love the neutral pumpkins juxtaposed with the bright patterned paper and the texture in the background! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges!

Love this Steph! Those natural pumpkins and the vibrant patterned paper work so well together and I love the way the pumpkins sit on the sentiment line. Thanks for playing over at As You See It this week!
