Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Leaves CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have any plans?  I have off today, but I’m not sure yet what I will be doing.

I have a Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy fall card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #348.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #454.  Here is their sketch.

I started by cutting a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the 2nd largest rectangle from my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 3 leaves out of a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I sponged some Mint Macaron Ink on the leaves and then crinkled them.  I adhered the leaves to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment label.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, once full strength and once stamped off, on either side of the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Mint Macaron 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 wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, 1 full strength and 1 stamped off.  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!!

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! Fireside Trimmings Fall

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I got some cleaning done and still had time for some crafting.  Hope you are all starting the week off well.

For today I have a card using the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Bundle to make a fall card.  Since it’s cooled off so much here I was thinking how nice it would be to sit in front of a fire.  Unfortunately I don’t have a fireplace, but I can dream.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown Challenge #611.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the fireplace image from the Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.  There is a panel of DSP that looks like marble in this pack of paper, so that’s the one I used.  I added a little color on the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Fireside Dies.  Using the same dies and the same DSP I also cut out the center piece to the framed die.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the die cut piece.  On a small scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the log image from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the log image out using the Fireside Dies and I cut the log holder piece out of a small scrap of Basic Gray cardstock.  I adhered the fireplace to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the log holder inside the fireplace opening using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the logs using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Fireside Dies, I cut a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the frame die and adhered it to the sentiment using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Old Olive and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Autumn Wheel Barrow Dies and adhered it to the top of the fireplace using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the fireplace from the Fireside Trimmings stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and the log image in Crumb Cake Ink inside the fireplace. I colored the logs in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and added some shading to the fireplace using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Thanksgiving

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  I hope everyone has a productive week.

Today’s card is another one we made at our virtual in person team meeting on Sunday.  My card for today was designed by one of my team members Mary.  Mary loves making collage cards and they always look incredible.   Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the 2nd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the 2 die cut rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue both on slight angles.  On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image and the line with leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink about an inch apart.  I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd smallest label from the Celebration Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon in a wide ‘Z’ to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the label on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set 2 times on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock in Early Espresso Ink and colored just the pumpkins in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  I fussy cut just the pumpkins using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the pumpkins to the label using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 2  of the small sprigs from the Celebration Labels Dies from a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and adhered them under the pumpkins using Glue Dots.  On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Bumblebee Ink and cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top where it overlapped the pumpkins.  I added a Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel and the line with leaves image in Early Espresso Ink on the top of the panel.  I colored the images in using my Pumpkin Pie and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image and line with leaves image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top and bottom of the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Harvest Blessings

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  I have our team meeting today, which will be virtual.  At least I’ll get to see all my team members.

I made a fall/Thanksgiving card for today.  I’m really starting to love the fall colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Autumn Awakenings Challenge #239.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 2 panels of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered them to 2 Cajun Craze scalloped squares, I cut using the Layering Squares Die, using Stampn’ Seal.  I adhered them to the card front, overlapping in the center, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed off the pieces that were overhanging using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Cajun Craze cardstock to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a piece of Mint macaron Basket Weave ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in the center of a Very Vanilla panel using Cajun Craze Ink.  I adhered a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to t he bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope front and on 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Haunted Birthday

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  It was a gorgeous 55 degrees when I awoke this morning, but it was still dark out 😦  I have the windows open, the attic fan on and it is absolutely beautiful sunny day outside.   Yesterday I went to the farm to pick sunflowers, they neglected to tell us that there were no more to pick when we asked.  Instead I picked some Cockscomb, Zinnias and tomatoes.  I also came home with  a big bag full of basil that I spent a couple hours making pesto and freezing the containers.  I think I’m set for just a little while now.  Whatever basil grows now in my pots I will make pesto and use it, seems my family really likes it.

For today’s card it might look like a Halloween card, but it’s actually a birthday card.  My nieces husband loves Halloween and she wanted me to make him a birthday card.  They go all out with decorating for Halloween like I do for Christmas.  Here’s today’s card.

I had a lot of scraps of my Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper so I decided to put it on a card.  I cut 1/2″ strips of the DSP, Blackberry Bliss cardstock and Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I adhered the strips to a Basic Black panel using Stamp[in’ Seal.  Once all the strips were adhered, I cut the panel down to a 3 3/4″ X 5″ panel.

I stamped the large pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I stamped the face in the center of the pumpkin and punched it out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I cut the stem out of a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the spider web image from the Stampn’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  On the same panel, I stamped multiple of the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut them out using the Celebration Labels Dies.  I drew lines coming down from the spider web using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered the label to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the pumpkin to the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and all the spiders using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I embossed a panel of the Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock using the  Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on an angle.  I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front and brushed the spiders with some Clear Wink of Stella.

On the inside, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped  the spider web from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in the center of the panel and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set below the 1st sentiment.  I stamped the spider image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set around the sentiment and drew lines using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker from the web to the spiders.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  In Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the spider web and spiders from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the envelope front and drew lines from the web to the spiders using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the leftover scraps of Plaid Tidings 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Hello FALL CAS

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re into our 3 day weekend, hope you are doing something fun.  I have off today, but have to work tomorrow.  Our store is closed on Monday, but I may go in to get my paperwork done without being interrupted with the phones.  I’ll decide Monday morning what I want to do.

I have a clean and simple fun card for you today that was also quick and easy.  Take a look.

I played along with CASology Challenge #373.  Here is their cue card.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Playful Alphabet Dies, I cut the letters ‘FALL’ from a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock which was adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered the letters to the bottom of the card front.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.   I adhered the sentiment above the letters using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamping off 3 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the leave in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from Gather Together stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 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!!

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.

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! Autumn Country Home

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the 3 day weekend, for most.  Is anyone starting to make plans?

Today’s card is a pretty quick and easy one for you using a mix of Annual Catalog and Mini Catalog items.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Let’s Get Sketchy Challenge #238.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #386.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with The Alphabet Challenge.  Their theme is ‘K-To use Kraft Paper of Card’.

I started by adhering a panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pitcher image from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set on top of the pitcher in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I colored the images in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork on an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the smallest octagon die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn 
Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Country Home stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and colored the image in using my Gray Granite and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive 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 Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pitcher image from the Country Home stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on the pitcher in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a panel of Brightly Gleaming 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!!

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.
