STAMPtember Collaboration - Kitchen Sink Stamps

  Hello - and HAPPY STAMPtember - a month long party by Simon Says Stamp to celebrate all things stamping. 

Today we are getting to see the next in the progression of the special SUPER SECRET collaboration stamp sets that will be happening throughout the month! Today we have...Kitchen Sink Stamps!

As with most layering stamps, I can't resist stamping more than one color combination! If you have a MISTI stamping tool, it is so easy once you have them lined up, it always seems a shame to skip the opportunity! And it is so fun to see how different color combinations work.

I'm going to share this one first - because I love non-traditional color combinations, and I think this one came out super fun! In hindsight, I almost wish I had used mint or sage green instead of purple as the accent color, but still thought this was fun. :)

I used several different Simon Says Stamp gray inks to stamp the layers of the pumpkin on this one - I really wanted it to be a nice neutral version of the pumpkin. I then used a combination of blue inks for the stem, and then some purples and a bit of navy for the layers of the leaves.

I stamped the sentiments with some mid tones of the grays and purples, fussy cut the pumpkin to pop up on foam adhesive, rounded a couple corners, and then popped the entire panel on some pattern paper from My Mind's Eye.

I added a little twine bow to the top of the pumpking, and do you see the sprinkle of coordinating Pretty Pink Posh jewels sprinkled around the leaves for sparkle as well?

And then, of course, I had to do one in more traditional colors as well!

For this one, I used an array of Pinkfresh Studio inks - I love how realistic the pumpkin looks!

I did the same thing for the basic layout of the card - just the colors changed on this one.

This card features pattern paper from My Favorite Things for the background, and some yellow Pretty Pink Posh jewels to coordinate with the more traditional colors.

What do you think? Do you prefer traditional, or non-traditional colors?
