Retro Orange Pumpkin

Using the Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp (May 2018) by Gina K Designs in my MISTI, I stamped the panel in Tangerine Twist, then gave the panel a quarter turn and stamped again to create the plaid. I stamped the Gauze Background (May 2018), also by Gina K Designs in Sweet Mango. I used Tangerine Twist to stamp the Gingham (about 2009) using a stamp from Impression Obsession. The pumpkins were cut using Spellbinders limited edition Nested Pumpkins (about 2009). Using the direct to paper technique, I swiped Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink across a piece of white card stock until I was happy with the coverage. I let it dry then used D’Vine Swirl, one of my favorite Cuttlebug embossing folders. I stamped Happy Birthday from the Stamp TV Birthday Blessings kit from 2015 in Tangerine Twist ink on the Gauze pumpkin. I placed all on a Twisted Tangerine card base.

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Retro Rubber Challenge This is a Tic Tac Toe challenge. I chose the bottom row of the grid – die cut or punch, monochrome (hope this qualifies as monochrome) and Birthday.

  1. When you get going you really get going. Love this card and love that you got it to work for more than one challenge. Good luck with them – It is fun to win that is for sure, but even more fun to get challenged into thinking outside of the box.

  2. The pumpkins and the background stamping you added to each is a very cool idea. Love all of the challenges you entered this one into.

  3. What is not to love about this card. The embossed background, stamping on the pumpkins, layout. And, it qualifies for 3 challenges. Way to go girl.

  4. Yes, it certainly qualifies as monochrome! The way you’ve created the plaid on your big pumpkin is great – I’d assumed it was patterned paper. Thank you for playing along with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  5. How unconventional to use Pumpkins for a birthday card! I love it and the fact that you used orange and white for your monochrome. Wonderful. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber. Claire DT
