Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins in Very Vanilla for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Beautiful Bounty.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for my Freestyle Collage card. I was inspired mostly by the cream colored pumpkins along with the other colors in the photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #163. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by stamping the pumpkin trio image from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored one of the pumpkins and the leaves using my Mint Macaron and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leaf pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Versamark Ink on the Very Vanilla panel and immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the 2 pumpkin images along with the other detailed pumpkin images out using my Detailed Pumpkins Dies.

On a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock, I stamped the leafy vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink twice. I cut the 2 images out along with the detailed leaf dies using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies.

I arranged the pumpkins and leaves on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock adhering them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it by the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla detailed pumpkin to the side of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin trio image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for my card. I stamped the pumpkin leafy vine image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Golden Pumpkins

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend. My team is planning on having an all day event on Facebook for World Card Making Day on Saturday October 2nd. I’ll be posting the link by the end of the week. There will be live videos every hour on the hour along with posts all day and Prize Patrol. Come join in the fun!!!

Today’s card is a CASE’d card from one of my team members Terry Lynn. She made this gorgeous card and I asked her if I could use it for my class next Tuesday. You can see Terry Lynn’s card Here. I added my own little touches, but the basic design is all hers.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle along with the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the detailed pumpkin image using the Detailed Pumpkins Dies from a panel of Gold Foil Paper. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Gold Foil Mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the detailed Gold Foil pumpkin to the layered panel using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a small piece of Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the leaf pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I embossed a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it 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! Pretty Pumpkins for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but Sunday is our quarterly in-person team meeting. I always have a lot of fun at our meetings and I’m so happy we can meet in person again. I’d love to have you join in on our monthly and quarterly team meetings. Just join my team and you can attend too. Ask me how!!

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used another one of my favorite sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering the binding edge of the book fold card together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 panels of Harvest Meadow DSP to 2 Soft Succulent mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the front of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Detailed Pumpkins Dies, I cut a panel of Copper Foil paper and cut the detailed pumpkin out. I adhered it to the card front using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the trio pumpkin and leafy vine images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Detailed Pumpkins Dies.

I adhered the leafy vine die cut to the card front using Glue Dots and the trio pumpkin die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut the sentiment out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Diamond Weave Ribbon around the top of the card base and tied a knot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Harvest Meadow DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored the image in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of the Harvest Meadow 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
