Warm flowers

In a complete departure from the blues, greys and mauves of winter I have created a warm toned birthday card with Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip.  Despite the fact that orange has never been a favourite colour of mine I often reach for the pumpkin pie ink and cardstock.

To create the flower panel I stamped the branch in versamark and embossed in clear before sponging in all three colours listed above.  There is very little shadow but you might just be able to see that this panel is popped up a little off the card base.  I did try several combinations of layers and mattes but came back to this simple mix of ivory on pumpkin pie.

Inside the card I stamped a pale image by stamping it off on scrap first and then applying to the cardstock.

Thanks for dropping by;  I will back with more warm tones later this week and then I’ll probably lapse back into the winter inspired cards!


Stamps: Garden Silhouettes, Teensy Tiny Wishes
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, Pumpkin Pie, Versamark
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory, Pumpkin Pie
Also:  Clear e.p.

    I love this! The colors are beautiful and warm. I like the idea of popping the panel, and backing it with one of the colors. I also really like stamping the branch inside the card, after off-stamping — what a lovely way to make an impression on the inside of a card!
