Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie – AWH Colour Creations Showcase Week 38

 

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!


The birthday greeting is from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set and stamped using Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and then mounted onto Pumpkin Pie card stock. I have then mounted this onto a black and white piece of True Love DSP just to offset the muted Autumn colours. Another strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock is adhered behind this, placed onto dimensionals and layered onto the stamped card and Pumpkin Pie card stock base. I wanted to keep the card pretty basic to include just simple stamping with a greeting attached.

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.

  1. You've showcased Pumpkin Pie beautifully, Rosa. The colours you chose for your autumnal card look so beautiful together ... I wouldn't have thought to team them up, but love the look. Your second card is very cute and cheery. :)

  4. Great cards Rosa. Love them both. Pumpkin Pie is so good for an autumnal colour, coordinating beautifully with your other chosen colours. Stamping Forever Fern over the lower half of the card looks so good. Your fruit card is so cute - so happy and bright. xxx

  7. Love the expanse of white at the top of your first card, with all those glorious leaves stamped below. I think this is the first Cute Fruit card I've seen and it's too cute!
