Have a Gourdeous Day- MMH September Countdown


  



 Hola everyone! Today, I am sharing a card as part of the countdown to the release of the 
Hero Arts September 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit

I love all things orange. But, for some reason, during the fall season, I prefer pumpkins in other colors! I thought pink pumpkins with the sentiment: "Have a GOURDEOUS day would make a pretty card.

To begin, on a piece of Dove White cardstock, I stamped the layered pumpkin patch image from the kit three times using my MISTI Stamping tool. The ink colors I used were: Lime Green, Raspberry Jam, Cotton Candy and Bubble Gum. 

The Pumpkin Patch HeroScape Color Layering set is simple to use. I loved watching the images come together. Just imagine the various color combos you can come up with! 



I cut each image to 4 1/8" X 1 3/4" matting all three with Hero Hues Azalea cardstock, followed by the copper glitter paper included in the kit. I added an additional Dove White cardstock mat to one panel only-this would later be used as the centerpiece for my card. 

 After stamping "Have a GOURDGEOUS day" with Raspberry Jam onto Dove White cardstock, I cut it down to 1" X 2", added a copper glitter paper mat and glued on a few Ombre Blush sequins. I then assembled the card adhering two panels with glue in the center of a Dove White Top Folded Card. I centered the aforementioned centerpiece panel onto the two panels, securing it with foam tape. I finished the card by gluing the sentiment onto the center of the centerpiece. 

Next month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I feel this card would be nice to share with a survivor or anyone currently battling the disease. 

I hope I have inspired you today! ​ ​Thanks for taking a peek.

  2. Pam, I love that you took these gourds to another level in your creative process of making this brilliant card! It's a super card to make for a breast cancer survivor or a woman currently battling it. The bit of glitter showing around each panel & the sentiment adds a touch of elegance too. Thanks for this inspiration.

  9. With all the pinks, this is definately worthy of sending to a breast cancer survivor. My mother's was thankfully caught early and at 73 years young ,been cancer free for about 15 years or so. I love the fact that you did something completely different with this kit. Your card is beautiful. I really like the design and layout.
