This sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Word Play stamp set says so much. It's a marvelous change-up for birthday, old friends or even anniversary. How about adding scrapbooking to the list of possibilities?
- Using the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, I cut both Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso card stock with the Lattice Bigz Die (a Stampin' Up! exclusive).
- I filled in the Pumpkin Pie lattice "frame" with pieces of Early Espresso for a "leaded glass" effect. Big "WOW" factor. Check out my video tutorial on this technique.
- Just a touch of mini scallops. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch produced the sweet Pumpkin Pie edging.
- Again, I consulted the Stampin' Up! Color Coach for my palette. Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso are a recommended combination with Pumpkin Pie. Bonus! All three are part of the Stampin' Up! Getting Started Collection (p. 165 of the Idea Book and Catalog)
