Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Friendship Monochromatic

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started out? I hope you are having a productive one.

I have a monochromatic card for you today. It’s a little different from my multicolor cards that I usually make, but I really like the way it came out. My team leader Amy made a black and white card last week using these pumpkins and I really liked the way it looked, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle along with the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #568.

I started by embossing a Basic Gray card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Black Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front and tied a bow.

Stampin’ Up! has this beautiful new Silver Foil Specialty Pack of paper with 3 different finishes in it. I cut the tall detailed pumpkin from the shiny piece using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. I cut the smaller pumpkin from the darker panel using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped the leafy pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the embossed image out using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. I adhered the pumpkins to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the bakers twine.

On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front, over the bakers twine, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
