Same but Different

After creating my Gourd Goodness card for last Thursday’s challenge, click here to see it, I decided it needed a little something extra.

So….

I added a few extra details to “jazz” it up a bit.

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card featuring two step stamping for beautiful details. For instructions click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #twostepstamping #gourdgoodness

What did I use to create this Gourd Goodness beauty?

(scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Gourd Goodness

Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze

Ink: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Early Espresso

Accessories: Pinewood Planks embossing folder, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits, Copper Metallic Thread

It’s All in the Details:

  • monochromatic background with texture – the embossing adds a subtle detail without screaming “Hey LOOK at me!” keeping the focus on the gourds and the message.
  • two step stamping tip:
    • lighter color (Pumpkin Pie) on the less detailed image
    • darker color (Cajun Craze) on the more detailed image
    • Soft Suede stamped off once for less detailed stem and full strength for detailed stem
    • Early Espresso: sentiment
