As I shared in yesterday's post, there's much more than Halloween to Stampin' Up!'s new Pumpkin Patch stamp set. Be sure to check out the Halloween and Birthday cards that I shared yesterday. I only had time to finish and photograph one card today. There's another one not finished on my craft table and I've got lots more ideas, so be sure to check back in the next few days for other great ideas for this versatile set!
Today's sample: New Years!
They sure don't look like pumpkins anymore, do they? I came up with this idea because the little vine stamp reminded me of streamers/confetti! I used Silver and Gold Encore ink to stamp the balloons and the streamers. A white gel pen made the balloon strings. The ribbon slide is from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit and serves to anchor the Gold and Silver Elastic Cord. It's a gray, gloomy day here in northern NJ, so my picture doesn't quite capture the sparkle of this card.
If you must own your own Pumpkin Patch set, you can order it online, anytime! Simply visit my Stampin' Up! website, click Shop Now in the upper right corner and enter item #116449. It's just $22.95 and has year-round appeal.
