Paisley Pumpkin

Debra Burgin 1009 Paisley PumpkinThis set Paisley Prints, is the featured stamp set for this weekend’s Super Saturday event.  Coloring it this way — markers direct to rubber — is a fun way to accent the paisley motif without a lot of precision.  Just use the brush tip of your markers to swipe and swirl, always remembering to start with the lightest color to avoid color transfer to another marker.  Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink (what we call “huffing” in the stamping world) and stamp.  Each time you do this, your results will be different.

Campers have been practicing wheeling this month on this card.  One of the featured Super Saturday cards will also use a wheel, one whose design is more pronounced than this Paisley Party wheel.

The ribbon here is just a big loop, taped down behind the pumpkin medallion.

Stamps:    Paisley Prints, Paisley Party wheel (both from Holiday Mini)

Ink:    Old Olive, Stampin’ Write Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke)

Paper:    Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze

Other:    Punches (1¾” Circle, 2⅜” Scallop Circle,  2½” Circle), Mat Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool, 5/8″ Satin Ribbon (Pumpkin Pie), Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals
