Week 38 - Colour Creations Showcase - " Pumpkin Pie"

 


This week for Colour Creations Showcase we are looking at a bright orange called Pumpkin Pie.

A couple of weeks ago I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend as her uncle had passed away and this week her husbands uncle passed away, so I wanted to make another card. I thought this colour would be just perfect for adding that little bit more male influence to the card. I have also left it more of a monochromatic card.


For this card I have chosen to use the "To A Wild Rose" and Woven Heirlooms" stamp sets.
I particularly love the Woven Heirlooms stamp set as it has a lovely sentiment not only for the outside of the card "Thinking of you" in a lovely font but on the inside as well "Prayers and heartfelt sympathy are with you and your family" For the sentiment on the front I have heat embossed on Basic Black with white Stampin' Emboss Powder and fussy cut around the sentiment.

For the layers of my card I have Basic Black for the card base and have layered Pumpkin Pie then a piece of In Good Taste DSP over that before die cutting out in Gold Foil a frame using the Ornate layer dies. I then cut the centre out of the gold with my paper trimmer. I can use that piece another time. I adhered all of that together then made my Pumpkin Pie frame with the stitched rectangle dies.

As you can see here I have popped the frame and the flowers up on mini dimensionals and then adhered it slightly diagonally. Before I did any of that I will tell you how I built the flower frame.

In the To A Wild Rose stamp set there are 3 parts to the rose. I use only 2 parts as I wanted a fair amount of white still showing when I stamped on the Basic White card. I used the what would be considered the middle and then the outline layers of the rose. I first inked up the middle layer and stamped off onto a scrap piece of paper 2 times to get a lighter shade of pumpkin pie and then did a full strength pumpkin pie outline stamp of the rose.

I also did the leaves this way in Mossy Meadow but I only stamped of 1 time instead of 2 times. I then adhered the flowers to the frame with a little bit of Tombow multipurpose glue and trimmed off the excess along the edge of the frame. I then added the leaves and the glimmer ribbon and went to town with the mini dimensionals before adhering to the card and placing the sentiment also on mini dimensionals and to finish off with the matte black dots that you can find in the Jan-June Mini. I am really loving those!

Oh Sharon, i'm so sorry you have needed another sympathy card. i'm sure this lovely card will give your friend much comfort as the love you have built into it shines. You have handled the orange roses perfectly with stamping off and only using 2 of the stamp layers. I love your background layering. Beautiful. xxx
