Hello!

The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is a color challenge, using Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, and Baked Brown Sugar.  I am trying diligently to go through my stamp sets and play with the ones that I have put to the side.

  • The base card was cut vertically from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
  • The first layer is from the Polka Dot DSP in Pumpkin Pie.
  • Very Vanilla was put through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
  • Pumpkin Pie Banners:  I used an exclusive Paper Pumpkin stamp, versamarked it onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock and heat embossed in White Embossing Powder.  I then put it through the Big Shot with a Hearts a Flutter framelit.  The Baked Brown Sugar banner is from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set and then cut with the matching framelit.  Sentiment is from the My Little Valentine Stamp Set.
  • Flowers:  Itty Bitty Shape Punch was used in Pumpkin Pie, then covered with the matching clear bitty button (retired), 1/8″ Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon was then used.
  • Bitty Butterfly Punch was used with Pumpkin Pie and Vellum, then layered and embellished with pearls.
  • The Heart is from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set that was versamarked onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and heat embossed in white embossing powder.
  • Sentiment banner was made from A Dozen Thoughts, then trimmed with the hexagon punch.
  • A Cute Clip trimmed with a small piece of Pumpkin Pie ribbon was used to complete the card.
