CCC #18 - Hello.... {pumpkin}

{for my Shining the Light post, please scroll down}

hello!!!  i'm back with my card for the brand new CASology challenge!!  this week the cue word is "orange"... so many directions you can go with this one for sure!! our special guest designer is the very talented jean!!   you can find all the details here.




i wanted to make a kinda fun card this week.... one that combined a word with a image.  i recently purchased an alphabet set from my favorite things that was perfect for what i wanted to do.  originally i had die cut the letters from white cardstock and was going to adhere them to orange cardstock along with a trimmed out pumpkin, but when i started putting everything together it just didn't look very good.  so i switched back to white cardstock piece with orange letters and a stamped pumpkin.  a much crisper look for sure and don't you just love all that yummy white space???  i know i do... sigh!!  i generally don't like to give out tips because for the most part i think that people figure things out on their own, but decided to share this one.   when using alphabet letters and images together try to make sure that the scale is similar for both.  this creates a very clean and pulled together look.

thanks for stopping by....make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer, Jean!   can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

supplies:  cardstock:  pti white; bazzill orange; stamps:  pti autumn elegance; ink:  stampin up! pumpkin pie & memento bamboo leaves; dies:  my favorite things high rise lower cares alphabet

Hello Rosie
'Yummy White Space'!!!!!!It is a good thing that we designers of cards are so different, otherwise we would have no inspiration.
Orange is an extrovert colour; playful gregarious and happy, and your card relates all of these feelings.
Great tip too Rosie.
