Harvest Pumpkin Trio - Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest

 So if Christmas cards are on the table for summer stamping pumpkin cards are definitely on the table!  I'm making lots of samples of seasonal cards right now for my upcoming Mini Catalog Kickoff event in July.  My stampers love to see all the ways you can use a stamp set so I like to have multiple samples for each of the sets I'm displaying.  

  The Color Throwdown colors this week threw me for a day or 2.  I was trying to wrap my brain around orange and pink and I was trying to figure out how to use them so I wouldn't hate it all.  Then I thought what about pumpkins in the challenge colors?  The upcoming new Harvest Hello bundle has some fun pumpkin dies with a cool texture effect that I thought might work well.  What do you think?

  After the pumpkins were die cut I sponged the same color ink around the edges and then added the Crumb Cake stems and vines.

  I mounted them on top of a piece of Very Vanilla embossed with the Leaf Fall embossing folder.  I sponged some Crumb Cake ink around the edge to keep with the distressed look of the pumpkins.

  The Hello banner is popped up over the edge of the pumpkins and over a length of retired Fine Art ribbon which has a bit of gold woven through for a hint of sparkle.

  I'm happy I could make these colors work because I was very skeptical at first!  I guess that's why they call it a challenge!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
