Pretty Pumpkins by Stampin’ Up

I was so excited to finally sit down and play with the Pretty Pumpkins bundle! Both the stamp set and die set have lovely images that can be used for all types of cards.

Today’s Video

Using several colors on a stamp gives such depth and life to an image. For that reason, I chose to demonstrate that technique today. Our Stampin’ Write Markers come in every color that Stampin’ Up carries. But, we don’t use them nearly as often as we should. The Stamparatus tool allows us to easily use multiple colors on our images!

More Pretty Pumpkin Cards

In contrast, these two above images were colored using our Stampin’ Blends Markers. You get a totally different look and feel to your cards!

I used Crumb Cake Ink and stamped the smaller pumpkin. Clear Embossing Powder was quickly sprinkled over the image and it was heat set. The same process was used for the sentiment. I die cut the larger pumpkin from a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. A twine bow adds the finishing touch.

Finally, my last card of the day might be my favorite one. I wanted a simple yet elegant card for fall. I used a fall-type sentiment, but a birthday or wedding sentiment would also work very nicely.

As always remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative.
