With every new catalog, I participate in swaps with other demonstrators so that I can share more amazing ideas with all of you! For today’s post, I thought I would share one of the cards I will be sending off as one of my swaps. It uses the new Gourd Goodness stamp set with the Burlap stamp in the background.
Check out this super cute fall card! It is the perfect mix of the Burlap background stamp and the Gourd Goodness stamp set from the Holiday catalog. And I love the color combination that I pulled from the Painted Autumn designer series paper. Certainly not a traditional colored fall or autumn card but it sure is stinkin’ cute!
Gourd Goodness is a 2 step stamp. For the green gourd I used Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green. For the Pumpkin I used Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango with a Garden Green marker for the stem. Man I think I need to start lobbying now for Stampin’ Up! to keep Lemon Lime Twist!
A little hint with the Burlap background, a little bit was good – but more was too much. . .. and the tone on tone seemed too dark too. In this case that was Pool Party ink on Pool Party cardstock. So what I did was put Soft Sky ink on the Burlap stamp and put that onto the Pool Party cardbase.
If you haven’t yet checked out the amazingness in the Holiday catalog – you need to do that. Get your orders ready – September 1 is right around the corner!
