The pumpkins and gourds are so realistic you’ll be trying to convince your friends and family it isn’t a picture and that you truly did make your Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness card!
Kudos to the designer of the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set. Even though my girlfriend sat across from me and watched me stamp the pumpkins and gourds, she couldn’t help herself from touching them. They are so realistic she expected to feel the texture of the pumpkins and gourds.
The secret, second only to the design of the pumpkins and gourd stamps, is that Gourd Goodness is a two-step stamp set. That means it takes at least two steps to complete an image. The first step is to stamp the most detailed stamp in your darkest color and then the most solid stamp stamped directly over top in a lighter color. That gives you the remarkable shading and detail.
The 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog states to “Use the Seasonal Layers dies to cut out multiple accents.” That is absolutely true. The die-cut leaves on my hand stamped Gourd Goodness card are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. They do provide a fantastic decorative touch. But, I want you to know the leaf die is not the same shape to die-cut the leaf stamp in the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set.
Amazingly realistic pumpkins and gourds are just a click away when you order the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!
