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! Gather Together Thank You Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone get to go apple picking or pumpkin picking?  The extent of my apple picking was going to Costco.  It’s not looking too promising for me going this year.

For today, I made another thank you card.  I need to send quite a few out in the next week or so, so I figured I’d better get busy making extra.  My card design and colors were a challenge given to us by my upline.  She’s doing a weekly challenge for our group.  Here’s my card.

Here are the sketch and colors for our challenge.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the image out using the Gathered Leaves Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I colored the pumpkin in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using my Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce inside the pumpkin.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 2 large and 2 small Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the smaller pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I masked the smaller pumpkins and stamped the larger pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to them.  I colored all the pumpkins in using my Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail 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 and colored the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card.  I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink 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! 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! Birds of a Feather Thanksgiving for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend?  I hope you are making some fun plans.  I love this time of year when the air is a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change.  We’re having nice cool nights and very pleasant days right now.

For today I have a quick fun fold for you.  Actually the only part that has the fold is the Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge #172.  Here are their colors. Love these gorgeous fall colors.

I started out by folding my Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  On the 5 3/8″ side I cut up 2″ at the 2 11/16″ mark.  I scored from each of the corners on an angle to the cut line and folded on the scored lines.

On the right center edge 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 turkey image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the folded DSP to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze  card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow that I made from the Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

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 Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze 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 in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card 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. I hope you all have a fun filled weekend.  See you Monday. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Fall Birthday Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday blog.  It’s Friday the 13th, there’s a full moon and it’s a harvest moon tonight.  I love watching the full moon rise at night, I’m hoping it will be a nice clear night to see it.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here already, I hope you have some fun plans.  We’re at apple picking season here, that’s always a lot of fun.

For today’s card I made a Dutch Door Card using multiple fall related stamp sets.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #458.  Here are their colors.

I started by putting together my card base.  I scored the 4 1/8″ X 8 3/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 5 1/2″ and folded it.  I scored the 8 1/2″ X 2 1/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ and folded it on the score lines.  I adhered the larger card base to the smaller card base so that the 2 folded  sides would close over the bottom of the larger card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the top portion of the card base using Snail.  I then adhered the 2 smaller panels of Come To Gather DSP to the outside  bottom portion of the card base to the edges so that they met in the middle and there was no border using Snail..

I cut out 3 Merry Merlot leaves using the Seasonal Layers Dies.  I cut out 2 more leaves, one in Cajun Craze and the other in Pretty Peacock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampn’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the pumpkin out using the Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched the stem out of a tiny scrap of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered it to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I cut out the ‘Birthday Wishes’ sentiment from the Well Written Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.

I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  I adhered the pumpkin to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the pumpkin using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the Whisper White panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 of the Merry Merlot leaves to the bottom ‘Doors’ of the card base using Glue Dots.  You can also see in the picture above how I adhered the DSP to the ‘doors’ of the card, with only leaving a border on 3 sides.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on top of the leaf.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small Whisper White panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered the to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot Inks.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

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

If not, you can still go back to yesterday’s blog and hop around.

For today’s card I did a technique that I haven’t done before (at least I don’t think I have.  I used my Sponge Brayer to make the background on my card.  I usually do the sponging technique using my Stamping Sponges, but I thought I’d try something new.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  1st off I joined in with As You See It Challenge #208.  Their challenge is a Night Glow Color Challenge.  Here are their colors.

Nest I played along with Fab Friday Challenge #171.  Here is their sketch

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #127.  They have a Theme challenge this week.  Their theme is “Create a Scene”.

I started by using my Sponge Brayer and adding color slowly to a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I started with the bottom and added Mango Melody Ink.  I worked my way up and next used Coastal Cabana Ink.  On the top of the panel I used my Sponge Brayer with Pretty Peacock Ink.  After I was done adding the amount of color that I wanted, I stamped the multiple tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.

I cut 2 of the trees out from the In The Woods Dies from Basic Black cardstock and adhered them to either side of my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I then cut the grassy cat tail die from the Friendly Silhouettes Dies out of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana mat using Snail

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a thin Mango Melody strip of cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Coastal Cabana Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I made a tiny bow from the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set on either side of the envelope front and on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up Gather Together

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your Labor Day?  Hope you all had a relaxing day.

For today’s card I used a bundle from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog which goes live TOMORROW!!  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with a few challenges today.  First off is CAS On Sunday challenge #162.  There theme is ‘Use a Stencil’.

Next is Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #472.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge #227.  Here is their spotlight product.

I started by sponging the trees using the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and Soft Suede Ink on a Whisper White panel with my Stamping Sponges.

I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the stenciled Whisper White panel using Glue Dots.  I cut it even with the card front.  I adhered a panel of Old Olive cardstock over the DSP using Snail and cut it even with the card front.   Using Versamark Ink I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of the Old Olive panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.

Using Versamark Ink I stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set on a Cajun Craze panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the leaf out using my Gathered Leaves Dies. I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze Mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the leaf in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Makers.  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!!
