The Stamp Review Crew:  Pick a Pumpkin Edition

Stamp Review Crew Pick a PumpkinI love fall! I love pumpkins! I love stamping! So what could be better than stamping a fall card featuring pumpkins?  There is an idiom which states “Less is more”.   Well, that certainly is not the case with this card.  To say I got carried away with layers and details is an understatement.   Let’s take a closer look at today’s card!

Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

This card measures 4-1/4″ wide x 5-1/2″ tall when folded.

“When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock…”  This line from the James Whitcomb Riley poem kept running through my head.  I just had to make some frosty punkins!

Pick a Pumpkin This pumpkin was selectively inked using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake.  The upper portion was embossed using a mixture of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Tip:  A little glitter goes a long way!  The Garden Green vine, die cut from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, was embossed with a touch of Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Stamp Review Crew Pick a PumpkinWith this pumpkin, a mixture of Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter once again adds the sparkle, while Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder is responsible for the rich metallic shine.

Stamp Review Crew Pick a PumpkinThe same technique was used on these two pumpkins, while the gourd merely sports a pearl.  I know. I know. I should have made the gourd a different color.  Can you believe that all this time I was thinking eggplant – and a rather warty one at that? It wasn’t until I was done photographing the card that I realized the error of my botanical ways. How much prettier it would have been in a vanilla color.  Do these things ever happen to you?
