Hi everyone I'm back for another week joining the AWH Colour Creations showcase and this week our chosen colour is Pumpkin Pie. As the name suggests it is similar in colour to pumpkin flesh! I always thought it was a dull orange but working with it this week the colour is brighter and can also be used in a citrus theme.
As we head into Autumn in the Southern hemisphere I have used this as a colour combo inspiration for my first card. The long slimline card base in Whisper White measures 21cm x 10.5cm folded and will fit into a business size envelope. The ink colours I have used are Pumpkin Pie, Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider to stamp the leaves onto Whisper White and are from the Forever Fern stamp set in the Annual Catalogue, definitely a firm favourite!
And as the Northern hemisphere heads into Spring, I wanted to show the use of Pumpkin Pie in a more brighter colour combination with my second card. So I have used Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight colours.
The stamp set used is Cute Fruit for both the fruit images and the sentiment. Some of the fruit was stamped onto a square Whisper White cardstock and others were fussy cut. This was adhered to a Pumpkin Pie card stock that was cut using a perforated square die cut from the Snail Dies.
And the sentiment stamped and cut into pieces and along with the other bits, were adhered with dimensionals to a piece of Oh So Ombre DSP from the Sale-a-bration promotion that had just finished last weekend. So if you were lucky enough to obtain the free item I'm sure that you will be able to use this paper in many ways.
