Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie


This week, is week  43 in the Colour Creations blog hop and this week we continue our journey through the existing Stampin' Up! core colours, working in alphabetical order. This week our feature colour is  Pumpkin Pie, a member of the Brights family of colour and is similar to the colour of a Pumpkin as the name suggests.

 For this week's card I have gone back and revisited the gorgeous Cheerful Daisies bundle as well as a new Online Exclusive bundle, Happy Little Things, and teamed Pumpkin Pie simply with Black and White and used lots of embossing, which happens to be one of my favourite techniques. I just love watching the embossing powder melt when heat is applied. So effective. 

For the background I have selected a piece of the Stargazing Designer Series Paper and stamped one of the Cheerful Daisies stamps multiple times using Versamark. The daisies have then been embossed in White. Given the paper has multiple shades this was thought to be enough for the background. 

A large bow using Black and White Gingham has been placed under the sentiment panel.

Both of the sentiments are from the new online exclusive bundle, Happy Little Things. The stamp set has largish words in both outline and solid that can be matched with smaller phrases. In this case the outline stamp has been embossed in Black. Strange but true, I don't own Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends so I have used Blender Pens and a Pumpkin Pie ink pad to lightly colour the infill of the sentiment. 

 On closer inspection it appears that I may have accidentally knocked off some of the embossing powder on each end of the word "Celebrate". Before stamping "Celebrate" another Cheerful Daisies stamp was stamped off several times  using Pumpkin Pie.  

The smaller of the sentiments has been embossed in White on Black cardstock and then die cut using one of the Happy Little Things dies. 

Finally a few Adhesive Backed Shiny Sequins in Pumpkin Pie have been added for some bling.

For the inside of the card a couple of different Daisies also from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set have been stamped in Pumpkin Pie on White and die cut, along with a leftover strip of the Paper used on the front of the card. 


Next in tonight's blog hop is the talented  Christine Blain. I look forward to seeing this week's beautiful creation.

    Fabulous card Theresa, great idea to emboss the daisies on the PP DSP

  2. Oh, I love this, T! I've done a complete turnaround, with my feelings towards Pumpkin Pie this week. I have dislike it for so long, but I think I love it now that I've seen this week's gorgeous creations. I really love the big, happy, white-embossed daisies all over that beautiful Pumpkin Pie DSP. I also love the stamped-off flowers behind the sentiment, and the fussy-cut flowers inside your card. Oh, and that bow! What a fun, standout, addition to your card.

  3. What a fabulous card, Theresa! I love the monochromatic colour combination and your use of heat embossing too. Your heat embossed white daisy background looks incredible!

  4. Theresa the white daisies embossed on the Stargazing DSP are very striking. The large coloured sentiment is a standout together with your fancy bow.

  5. Teresa, I love how you have used the stargazing DSP as the background of your daisy card, it is brilliant. The white embossed flowers are so crisp and the big ribbon bow is perfect!

  6. Fantastic Card Theresa! Love that you have embossed the daisies onto the DSP they look fabulous! Gorgeous card!
