SSS Peace on Earth, Oh My Gourd

Hi all!  Hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  Today I'm sharing another fall card I created for the Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth release.

I started by using the Build a Plaid set of cling stamps.  This is a rubber cling set where there are different widths of solid stamps which you can tear apart.  As the names suggests, the stamps are designed so you can create your own unique plaid backgrounds, but, used together as they are packaged, you get a great gradient look.  I stamped the background using the three darkest colors from Altenew's Shades of Purple ink family - Midnight Violet, Deep Iris, and Lavender Fields - to really play up that gradient feel.

The pumpkins are from the new Let the Gourd Times Roll stamp set.  They were colored with Copics and then die cut with the coordinating dies.  I used E18, E09, YR09, YR68, YR16, Y38, and Y35 for the majority of the pumpkins.  There were a couple that were shaped differently, so for those I used E18, E09, YR27, YR24, and Y35.  The stems were colored with E29, E25, and E23.  

The Oh My Gourd sentiment die definitely got me chuckling.  I cut it three times from white cardstock and once from orange adhering them together with the orange slightly offset.  This was then adhered directly to my gradient base, and the pumpkins were popped up with foam tape.

I love how the orange and purple play against one another.

I'll be back tomorrow with more Peace on Earth inspiration, see you then!
