Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.
It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Beautiful Bounty. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for my Freestyle Collage card. I was inspired mostly by the cream colored pumpkins along with the other colors in the photo.
I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #163. How are you inspired by this photo?
I started by stamping the pumpkin trio image from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored one of the pumpkins and the leaves using my Mint Macaron and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leaf pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Versamark Ink on the Very Vanilla panel and immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the 2 pumpkin images along with the other detailed pumpkin images out using my Detailed Pumpkins Dies.
On a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock, I stamped the leafy vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink twice. I cut the 2 images out along with the detailed leaf dies using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies.
I arranged the pumpkins and leaves on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock adhering them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla detailed pumpkin to the side of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base.
To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin trio image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for my card. I stamped the pumpkin leafy vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.
