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! 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! Arrange A Thanksgiving Wreath

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I hope you are all getting off to a great start of a new week.

For today I played with another new to me set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and one from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut 4 flowers from the same die set out of a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and 4 flower centers from the Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  I stamped the flower center image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the flower center dies.  I adhered the centers to the Bumblebee flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Just Jade wreath on top of the Cinnamon Cider wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers on the bottom of the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

I made a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal on the bottom back of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the extra flower I die cut above the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel 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! Autumn Goodness for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here, ready or not.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for this week to be over.  I’m starting to feel like I live at work.  Has anyone made any plans for the weekend?  I’m working tomorrow, but I’m suppose to have off on Sunday, YAY!!!

For today I have another new fun fold for you.  It’s a bridge fold card and it is super easy.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge #254.  The theme is ‘Coloring‘.

I started by scoring and folding an 8 1/4″ X 4 1/4″ Mint Macaron card base at 1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ & 6 7/8″. I adhered 4 panels of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4 Early Espresso mats using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered them to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This is not a real good photo, but I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP bridge to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the bridge to the card front using Tear & Tape.  I first adhered the left side then I folded the card flat and adhered the right side.

I stamped the wheelbarrow image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Autumn Wheelbarrow Dies.  I cut the wheel from the Autumn Wheelbarrow Dies out of a piece of the new Brushed Gold Foil Sheet.  I adhered the wheel to the wheelbarrow using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the floral image our using my Autumn Wheelbarrow Dies and adhered it to the top of the wheelbarrow using Glue Dots.  I adhered the wheelbarrow to the right side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the back I stamped the cornstalk image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink towards the top of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Just so you can see, this card folds flat and fits perfectly in the medium envelope.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The items for this card will be available for you to purchase on Tuesday August 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Birds Of A Feather Thanksgiving Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re just about to the weekend, hope everyone is planning something fun.

Today’s card is another one we made at my Stamp Camp Tuesday night.  We made a Halloween card, a couple fall cards and a Thanksgiving card.  Next month is all Christmas cards.  Everyone had fun making this one.  If you live in my area and are interested in attending my classes, drop me a line.  I’d love to have you. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock to a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed the matted panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock to the center of the embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered the artwork over the Crumb Cake panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the layered artwork to the top of a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I used the next size larger Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out a Mint Macaron mat.  I adhered the sentiment to the mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dot to the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the right of the sentiment peaking in and colored it the same as I did for the artwork on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork on the card front with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Season of Thanks

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

I’ve got a fall card for you today using the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and the sponging technique.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Sunday Stamps Fall Harvest Challenge #215.  Here are there colors.

I started by placing one of the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I sponged the middle of the mask using my Stamping Sponges with Cajun Craze Ink.  I then went around the Cajun Craze with Pumpkin Pie Ink and finished the edges with So Saffron Ink.  I wrapped a piece of the Cajun Craze Lined Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack around the Very Vanilla panel.

I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of So Saffron Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ X 12″ Vellum Cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the leaf out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron leaves using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out a Cajun Craze/Pumpkin Pie leaf using the Seasonal Layers Dies.   I arranged the leaves how I wanted them and adhered them to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Cajun Craze Linen Thread Bow from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack under the leaves using a Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  I added a few silver  Metallic Pearls around the leaves.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Ink to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom front of the envelope in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Inks.   I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks on the envelope flap and colored it the same as I did for the card front.

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

Stampin’ Up! Beauty and Joy For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!!  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome 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 “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set to create a Thanksgiving card.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create Challenge #053.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Word Week #508.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the flowerpot stamping off once.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the tree trunk.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the banner I had to get a little creative.  I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the banner part of the stamp in.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink inside the banner.  I cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out some leaves using the Nature’s Roots Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered 3 of the leaves under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the cluster of leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that comes in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the cluster of leaves using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! A wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another one of the die cut leaves by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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. Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Amy Koenders blog or hit Next to head over to Mary Deatherage’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thanksgiving Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy October.  I can’t believe it’s October already, seams like it was just May.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Mine has started off pretty good.

For today I’ve made you a Thanksgiving card.  I don’t send out that many, just to a few special people.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges.  First off is The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #461.  Here is their challenge.  I went diagonally from the top left to the bottom right.

Next I played along with Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #427.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a smaller panel of Come To Gather DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set using Early Espresso Ink stamping off 3 times and cut the pumpkin out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Pretty Peacock Ink stamping off once and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I cut out 2 Mint Macaron and 2 Pretty Peacock leaves using the Gathered Leaves Dies.

I arranged the leaves on the bottom of the small DSP panel using Glue Dots.  I added a piece of the Crumb Cake 5/8″ ribbon with satin edge from the Come To Gather Ribbon  Combo Pack over the leaves and added the pumpkins on top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thin strip of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White strip to a strip of Early Espresso cardstock using Snail and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the sentiment stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I masked the image and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the smaller pumpkin image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front stamping off once.  I masked the image and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink over the smaller image, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink stamping off 3 times, twice on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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! Winter Woods Fall Thank You

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I want to first start by thanking everyone for all your kind words, encouragement and sympathy cards.   I am part of one of the best communities around.  You have all helped me so much at this very sad time in my life and I will never be able to thank all of you enough.  I am truly blessed to have you!!

I have a fall thank you card for you all today.  My sketch and colors were part of my uplines challenge that she is doing for the month of October.  Here is my card

I started by adhering a panel of Pumpkin Pie Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a small panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out 3 leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies, one in Blackberry Bliss, one in Merry Merlot and the last in Pumpkin Pie cardstocks.  These dies are perfect because they don’t only cut the leave out, but they emboss the vines in the leaves too.  I adhered a piece of the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon across the artwork using Snail.  I adhered the leaves on top of the ribbon using Stampin’  Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink in top center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Merry Merlot mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pumpkin Pie card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather 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!!
