Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a beautiful fall Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Bundle and the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today.
This is our sketch for this week.
I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sitting gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Gnome Dies. I adhered the gnome on top of the pumpkin using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.
On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Hello Harvest stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Pumpkin Pie card base.
To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from Hello Harvest stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about!
We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.
These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you and your customers will save 10% off the retail price.
Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more papercrafting fun!
