Oh have I had fun playing today! I could say, “I am blue”. But, I’m not — I’m tickled pink with my Pick a Pumpkin in blue. I love those Hubbard squash that you see that are all blue and bubbly. They were my inspiration for my not quite Fall pumpkins.
Pick a Pumpkin in Blue
I couldn’t decide on my favorite shade for the base.
So, I made it three times!
Here, I’ve used Pool Party for my card base.
Then, I have a layer of Shimmery White cardstock.
I spritzed it.
Then, I added on some of each of the blue shades.
While the watercolor background was drying, I stamped
and cut images from Pick a Pumpkin.
I’m in love with all of the stems that come in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits!
They add some light texture and I don’t have to fussy cut!
Finally, it is just a matter of layering all of the bits.
Those new Mini Dimensionals were perfect behind the pierced pumpkin!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Pick a Pumpkin in blue!

What did you spritz it with to make it glimmer?? I’m looking for a current substitute to the smooch spritz.

Emily, thanks for asking. I used Shimmery White cardstock. You can see it HERE It’s got great body for watercolor and the added bonus of all over shimmer!!

I love this card. Wish I would have seen it earlier. I just made what I consider to be a very boring fall card with the Pick a Pumpkin bunch in fall colors. This one inspires me to try it in my favorite color – PINK and all of its shades.
