Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Hello

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting? I’m ready for another busy week and a rainy one too.

I have another fall card for you today, take a look.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge # 616. Here are their colors.

My sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments #350. Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Cardz 4 Galz #133. Their theme is Fall/Autumn.

I also played along with Double “D” Challenge. ‘October…WHAT does it mean to you??

I started by adhering a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut another panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I stamped the top of the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on the side of a Very vanilla panel. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted Ink Nature Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once. I cut the image out using the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink towards the top of the circle and adhered it to the very vanilla panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 leaves out using the Gathered Leaves Dies, 1 in Cherry Cobbler and 1 in Brushed Metallic paper. I adhered the leaves to the tree trunk image using Glue Dots. I made a triple bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaves using a Glue Dot. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the tree trunk image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Crumb Cake in over the trunk image. I stamped the leaves from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the leaves from the Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the tree image.

I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

While constructing the new online store, Stampin’ Up! was required to temporarily suspend the offering of past kits and refills from Paper Pumpkin.  The online store functionality that allows them to offer these products is nearly ready to launch.  Paper Pumpkin Past Kits and Refills will be available once again beginning 26 October!!
