Hello crafty friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with a pretty patch of watercolor pumpkins. I love working with watercolors and when I have small pieces left over, I put them in a box to use later. For this card, I used many bits and pieces of my watercolor scraps to make these pretty pumpkins and leaves. I’m using the Sunny Studio Stamps, Pumpkin Patch dies for this 5″ X 7″ card.
To create this card, I added a wash of aquas, yellows and oranges on a strip of watercolor paper and adhered it to my white card base, front panel. I like the non-traditional colors of this backdrop. I added 1/8″ strips of white cardstock on the top and bottom of the strip for a clean finish.
For the pumpkins, leaves and vines, I die cut them from various scrap pieces that blended well with the watercolor background I chose. I love the deep orange colors with the soft, light blends. The contrast makes the card more interesting.
These pumpkin dies include three layers for each fruit in the set. I glued the two bottom layers together and used a foam tab under the top layer to make the pumpkins dimensional. This also allowed me to tuck a leaf or two in between the layers, too.
I attached all three pumpkins in a row, at the bottom of the watercolor strip to ground them. I attached more falling leaves on the front. Lastly, I stamped the phrase from the holiday stamp set, Cozy Christmas. I think it really fits this card. We love putting pumpkins around our house to decorate for fall. I hope you like it!
