QC Pick of the Patch Bundle and Them Bones DSP, plus Partial Punching Tip
Stamping with the STARS #420 Sketch: Cute Beautiful Balloons Card!

Create Your Own Background with Pick of the Patch!

For today's project, I'm sharing my last Pick of the Patch creation. 

This Thanksgiving card also features the Stamping Off Technique, which is perfect for creating your own stamped backgrounds.  I guess the Pick of the Patch stamp set is a good one for this technique.  Great for beginner and experienced stampers alike!  See my tips below.

DOstamping Create Your Own Background Tips:

  • I always start by choosing 3-5 coordinating ink colors.
  • On a piece of scrap paper, I typically play around with those colors and the stamp set I've chosen, trying out different combinations.
  • Once I'm satisfied with my color & image choices,  I start stamping.  ALWAYS start with the largest image and use the Stamping Off technique to get a variety of color shades. 
    1. Gourd = Gray Granite
    2. Pumpkin = Pumpkin Pie
    3. Small Pumpkin = Petal Pink
    4. Stems/Vines = Pecan Pie (use a sticky note as a "mask" near the top of each pumpkin to get smaller stems)
    5. Dots = Crumb Cake (I love that the Pick of the Patch stamp set came with what I call a "filler" image - perfect for filling some of the "white" spaces)
  • To finish off the card, I used the Copper & Natural Ribbon (available week of October 23).  To substitute, you could use cardstock.  1" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake and  1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Pumpkin pie.
