Patty's Blast from the Past Pumpkin Card

 

You may be thinking... WHAT blast from the past?  This Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin is BRAND NEW!?  Well, yes, you are right... but I got out my Prismacolor Pencils from my 1979 college art class to color them... now THAT'S a Blast from the Past, don't you think!? (contrary to popular belief, the world was not black and white back then... we did have color :)

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I found my Prismacolor pencil set recently and thought... hmmm I really want to use these on something.. so I looked for an outline image and whohoooo! This fun new pumpkin was perfect!  It's in the Jar of Haunts stamp set, on page 55 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  You can order this beginning Sept. 1st.  #142247.  Be sure to put it on your Shopping List!  Download 2016 Holiday Catalog Wish List

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped and colored 2 of the pumpkins on the Whisper White card front and left them as is, with the stamped stem/leaves on top, and the 3rd pumpkin was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out, and I stamped the Jack o Lantern face and add it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, and then added the Halloween greeting.

The cute polkadot paper behind the pumpkin piece is from the Halloween Night Specialty designer series paper pack, found on page 51 of the new Holiday catalog.  #142022

Did you notice the pretty background?  It's the new Cable Knit embossing folder.. Oh my.. it's gorgeous!  Did you see it in my Holiday catalog product review video??  You can CLICK HERE to see that part of the video!   After that video I discovered that it's REALLY pretty to use the new sponge brayer on the embossed cardstock.. look a the beautiful dimension... actually, it's great with or without the brayered ink!

 

Stampin' Up! Cable Knit embossing folder - add dimension with the sponge brayer and ink! by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

You'll find the Cable Knit embossing folder on page 13 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.  #143537.

TIP:  when adhering an embossed piece of cardstock, I highly recommend the Multipurpose glue.

Find the new Sponge Brayer is in the annual catalog, page 180, #141714.

I felt really rusty trying to remember how to use and blend the colored pencils.. but if you want to know how I colored the pumpkins, here is my step by step tutorial:

How to color the Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

I really loved that wash background stamp 'behind' the pumpkins.. you'll find that stamp in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. It's on page 134 in the annual catalog, #137167.  Before stamping it, I masked the pumpkins, and also stamped off the Cajun Craze ink so that it wouldn't be too dark.

As a Stampin' UP! demonstrator, our titles are Bronze, Bronze Elite, Silver, Silver Elite, Gold, Gold, Gold Elite, Platinum or Platinum Elite depending on our sales and the demonstrators we have in our downline.   When someone in my Luv 2 Stamp Group promotes to a new title, I now have a program to send them some gold, silver or copper accessories and a congrats card!

I hope you purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle!

 

I'm hoping you've purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle... Because.. I know you love using it for all 4 seasons!  It's a limited time offer stamp set and matching big shot framelit die set only available in August!!!  I LOVE the versatility of this set..  you can see some of the projects I've created with it at the bottom of this post.  Buy it here in my online store.  

Today I am featuring 3 different watercolor wash background cards using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and dies in different ways.

 

Thoughtful Branches Christmas card with watercolor wash background. card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

Each of these cards is created with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, layered onto Island Indigo or Whisper White cardstock, and onto a Marina Mist or Island Indigo folded card. 

I kept the color scheme very simple, and almost monochromatic for these winter or Christmas cards. 

The card below has the tree die cut layered on top of the watercolor wash, and the greeting is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  Be sure to stamp the greeting after the watercolor wash background has dried.

To create the watercolor wash background, use a 1" wide flat watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and dip into Marina Mist (or any blue) ink, but be sure to use a generous amount of water.  Wash back and forth onto your watercolor paper a few times.  THEN STOP.  I know you will want to "fuss" with it, but don't.  Just let it dry.. it will be beautiful :)

To create the white trees, stamp the trees in Versamark ink onto the watercolor paper and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder BEFORE doing the watercolor wash.  The wash will go right over the embossed images.

To create the beautiful copper stamped greeting, stamp the image from the Embellished Ornaments set in versamark ink and heat emboss with Copper embossing powder, then cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.
