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.
How'd She DO That? Pick of the Patch Thanksgiving card
- Stamps: Pick of the Patch
- Petal Pink (11" x 4-1/4" card base, 5/8" x 3-1/4" for sentiment)
- Basic White (3-7/8" x 5-1/8")
- Crumb Cake (4" x 5-1/4")
- Ink: Gray Granite, Pumpkin Pie, Petal Pink, Pecan Pie, Crumb Cake
- Other: Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Copper & Natural Ribbon Combo Pack, Adhesive-Backed Speckled Dots, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
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.
- Gourd = Gray Granite
- Pumpkin = Pumpkin Pie
- Small Pumpkin = Petal Pink
- Stems/Vines = Pecan Pie (use a sticky note as a "mask" near the top of each pumpkin to get smaller stems)
- 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.
