Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Fall Wreath for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with TGIF Inspiration Challenge #282.  Here is their inspiration.

I started by stamping the Wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the wreath.  I embossed the panel using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 1 of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock and 1 from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the wreaths to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I cut the flower centers from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  I cut 9 sprigs from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I adhered the flower centers to the back of the flowers using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sprigs around the flowers using Glue Dots.

From the Blackberry Bliss panel I cut the bow from the Wreath Builder Dies and adhered it to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our sketch for this week.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Highland Heather card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a small Whisper White panel using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Silver Foil mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple snowflakes from the So Many Snowflakes Dies out of a Silver Foil Sheet and adhered the larger one to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the smaller snowflake on the opposite corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the center section.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off once.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowflake images from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Special Someone for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our theme for this week.

My niece needed a card for a friends son who’s turning 4 and she wanted something with animals.  Worked out perfectly for me.  Here’s my take on the theme.

I started by embossing a panel of Pacific Point cardstock using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.  Since this is a mini embossing folder, I embossed half the panel then moved the embossing folder over to the other side, being sure to match up the dots, and embossed again.    I adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the grass die from the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the bottom of a Balmy Blue panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut 3 rectangles out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the racoon outline image from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the squirrel and mouse outline images from the Special Someone stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.  I stamped the squirrel fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink and the mouse fill image over the outlined image in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill images over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I cut all the images out using my Special Day Dies.

I adhered the racoon image to the largest rectangle and the squirrel and mouse images to the smaller rectangles using Glue Dots, tucking them in the grass a little.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the strings and balloons to the squirrel and mouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On 1/4″ strips of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Special Someone stamp set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered them to the artwork using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the outline balloon and string images from the Special Someone stamp set around the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks.  I stamped the balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.  I had stamped and cut out 2 of the racoon images on the Whisper White panel so I decided to adhere one of them to the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the racoon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the racoon fill image over the outlined image in  Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the balloon outline and string images from the Special Someone stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Real Red Inks on the envelope flap.  I stamped the  balloon fill image over the outlined images in the same colors stamping off once.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Halloween Fun”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I’m not a big Halloween fan, but I had a lot of fun creating this card.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from Fab Friday Challenge #196.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with ‘Just Us Girls’ Challenge #552.  They have a ‘Word Week’.  Here’s their theme.

I started by cutting the ‘BOO!’ out of a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Playful Alphabet Dies.  I adhered the DSP panel to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using a Foam Adhesive sheet with a panel of Basic Black cardstock, I cut the ‘BOO!’ out again using the Playful Alphabet Dies and adhered it to the card front where I cut the letters out.  I adhered the DSP letters on top of the Basic Black foam pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure the plaid lines lined up.  I cut the leaves from the Stitched Leaves Dies out of panels of Bumblebee, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  I ran each of the leaves through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine again adding the stitching to them from the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in the center of the pumpkin using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the pumpkin out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I cut the stem for the pumpkin out of a scrap of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Apple Builder Punch and adhered it to the back of the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.

I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the card front the way I wanted and adhered the leaves using Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the pumpkin using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the spider image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of the Plaid Tidings DSP.  I cut the spider out using the Celebration Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, matching up the lines on the plaid.  Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, I drew a line down the paper like he was coming down from his web.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the web image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I stamped the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times on the panel and drew lines from the web down to the spiders using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the spider web from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the envelope front.  I stamped the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set twice on the envelope front and drew lines from the web to the spiders using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  We have a couple new hoppers with our group. Welcome Julie Johnson and Nicole Bloxom, so excited that you joined us.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the fun sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card using this sketch.

I played along with the Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge #506.  I went across the top. Here is their board.

I also joined in with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #129. Their theme is ‘Just Saying Hello’.

I started by cutting 5 each of the smallest square from the Layering Squares Dies in Cajun Craze Cardstock, Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I embossed the Cajun Craze squares using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and I embossed the Crumb Cake squares using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder.

I arranged the squares on a panel of Copper Brushed Metallic Paper and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the outline maple leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once, over the outline image.  I stamped 2 of the outline oak leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and the fill image of the oak leaf in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped 3 of the acorn outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the fill images of the acorn in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, for the top and Crumb Cake Ink, stamped off once, for the bottom.  I stamped 2 of the pinecone outline image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the fill image from the pinecone image in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off twice, over the outlined image.  Using the Autumn Punch Pack I punched out the acorns, maple leaves and oak leaves, I fussy cut the pinecones using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the acorns, leaves and pinecones on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals in each cardstock square.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the metallic card front adhering it in the back using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Metallic ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack around the basket weave ribbon and tied a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set around the sentiment the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the acorn, leaves and pinecone images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have color challenge with some beautiful fall colors. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here is my card using these colors.

My design is from Fusion Card Challenge.  I chose to use just the sketch.  Here is their challenge.

I also played along with Daisy Chain Challenge #44.  Their Theme is ‘For Boys/Men’.

I joined in with Global Design Project #255.  They have a Theme Challenge this week. Here’s their theme.

I started by embossing an Early Espresso panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. 

I cut a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the die to the side of the embossed panel, hanging over the edge a bit, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, leaving a spot to insert the sentiment under the die.  I trimmed the edge of the DSP using my Paper Trimmer.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment just under the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set 2 times each.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaves in Cajun Craze Ink and the outline of the oak leaves in Mint Macaron Ink.  I then stamped the fill image from the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the fill image from the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once over the outline images.  I stamped the outline image of the acorn from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom section of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once over the outline image.  I cut the leaves and the acorn out using my Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the maple leaves to the right side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom one and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the top leaf.  I adhered the oak leaves and the acorn to the left side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the bottom leaf, a Stampin’ Dimensional for the acorn and a Glue Dot for the top leaf.  I made a double loop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the top of the acorn using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the outline of the maple leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink next to the sentiment.  I stamped the fill image of the maple leaf in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the outline of the oak leaf from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the fill image of the oak leaf in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I stamped the acorn image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Early Espresso Ink below the oak leaf.  I stamped the top of the acorn fill image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, over the outline image.  I stamped the bottom fill image of the acorn in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the outlined image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso 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 leaf and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set along the bottom front of the envelope the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card for today using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the  Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the car, house, trees and wreath in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored all the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce, Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut all the images out using my Home Together Dies.

From the same panel of Whisper White cardstock, I cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the 2 largest trees to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the house, trees and car to the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the wreath to the house using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Whisper White panel and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the top of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large and small trees from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Shaded Spruce and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the card and house images from the Coming Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

I adhered the Early Espresso panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Ribbon 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Life is Beautiful stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Fall Frenzy”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to use non-traditional colors for my card today.  I saw these colors together with some fall decorations and loved it.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing the top of a Sahara Sand card front using the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I adhered the card front to a Brass Foil Sheet mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Forever Flourishing Dies I cut panels of Brass Foil Sheet, Brushed Metallic Sheet, Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray using different dies.  Using the Stitched Leaves Dies and Nature’s Roots Dies I cut leaves out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I cut the pumpkins out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.

I arranged the leaves and pumpkins the way I wanted them on my Silicone Sheet and adhered them together using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the pumpkins with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a thin strip of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the top center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Eva, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here is my card for today using this sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I wrapped a piece of the Mint Macaron 1/2″ Basket Weave Ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, around the panel and tied a knot.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using one of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I cut a label from panel of Early Espresso cardstock using the Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered the oval to the center using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 6 leaves and 4 acorns from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set .  I stamped the acorn outline images in Early Espresso Ink, the acorn top in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off once, and the acorn bottom in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the leaf outline images in Cajun Craze Ink and the inside of the leaves in Cajun Craze Ink, stamped off once.  I punched all the leaves and acorns out using the Autumn Punch Pack.  I adhered the leaves and acorns to the sentiment using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the leaves and acorns that I stamped and punched from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze Ink and the inside of the leaves in Cajun Craze Ink stamped off once.  I adhered a panel of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
