Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Harvest Adventures.  This was one of the first layered designs I made when I first started making cards 16+ years ago and I still love it. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the colors, pumpkins and the baskets for my card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #160.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing an Old Olive card front using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the front of an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio of pumpkins image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.
