Heffy Doodle - Pasta La Vista - Stamp and Die

Hello everyone! It’s Ashley back with a new color palette and card for my Creative Color Combos series! I truly hope you are enjoying these new color combos and feeling inspired! Here is my color palette for today:

And here is the card I made using these colors as inspiration!

I won’t lie – I picked today’s color palette just for that yellow color so I could use these adorable pastas! Aren’t they so fun?!

When Lesley first previewed the Pasta La Vista set to us, I asked her about making a bowl die that we could put the pasta in. That ultimately seemed like too much of a single-use die, but I knew I had to come up with a way to make a bowl for the pasta myself. And I think I did!

I grabbed some teal cardstock and the Stitched Circles dies. For the main part of the bowl, I used the fourth circle in from the outside.

After cutting a circle out with that die, I took the largest circle and made a cut through my cardstock circle for the top of the bowl.

I flipped the top portion upside down to make the “back” of the bowl and tada! Pocket bowl!

I stenciled my background with the Fancy Folege stencil and Lawn Fawn Minty Fresh to use the lightest color on my palette. I used a strip of Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood dark brown patterned paper for the table and die cut the whole thing with a stitched rectangle like the Imperial Stictched Rectangles. I originally planned to ignore the light greige color at the top of the palette, but I decided to sneak it in with an Oyster colour card base. It isn’t an exact match, but pretty close!

I then stamped lots and lots of pasta shapes from Pasta La Vista in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with Copics. I used this how-to video by Mona to help me with my coloring. I’m not a Copic wizard like her, but I’m happy with my results. I cut everything out with the Pasta La Vista dies and assembled my pasta crowd. They are all so cute in their bowl! I finished with a sentiment from Pasta La Vista stamped in Jet Black.

I think this turned out so cute! I just love all the little pasta friends hanging out! And I hope you give this color palette a try! The yellow, brown, and teals go so well together!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

    I love this cute little card and how you have displayed the pasta. I have this stamp and die set and have cut some pasta piece out and colored them with my copic markers and would love to create my own version of this card to give to a very good friend. Is this acceptable as long as I give you credit. Thanks.
