Gather Together Simplicity

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #636.  This is a color challenge using Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee, and Basic Gray.


Keeping in mind that it's fall, I had to make an autumn card for this challenge using the Gather Together bundle.

CCMC #636 Gather Together by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Whisper White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut a piece of the Basic Gray patterned paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I love making designer paper fill the entire card front!  This paper is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Unfortunately, this isn't one of the papers on sale at 15% off, but you definitely want to check out the papers that are at the end of this post!  Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere this piece.  It gives it a little give long enough for you to get it just right.  Don't dawdle though.

There's another pattern of the Basic Gray across the card that  measures 1/2 x 4 1/4.  This pattern is actually on the back of the wood look lined gray.  When gluing this, make sure that your words are oriented correctly.

Stamp the pumpkin images in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock.  You'll need one of the large pumpkins and 1 of the group of two pumpkins.  Color the pumpkins using the Pumpkin Pie Blends Combo pack.  Color the stem with a Basic Gray marker from the Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers.  Cut out the pumpkins with the Gathered Leaves dies.  Adhere to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the wheat in Bumblebee ink on white 3 times.  These will need to be cut out with snips.  Add dimensionals.  The ends of the wheat may need to be trimmed.  Tuck them in behind the pumpkins.

The word THANKS is cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock using the Well Written dies.  Back the card stock with some of the Adhesive Sheets.  That makes adding the word to the card front so easy!

Finish off the card with some of the Bumblebee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

For the inside of the card, use a saying from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray.  Add some of the wheat in Bumblebee in the lower right corner.
