Stampin’ Up! Autumn Gather Together

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? Does anyone have plans this weekend? I’m working today, but I have off tomorrow. The next 2 weeks are going to be work crazy for me, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I had to take my fur baby to the vet yesterday, annual check up. I got detoured all around to get there because of road work. I turned out to be such a gorgeous ride. It seems like over night the trees have all turned to yellows, oranges and reds. Such a beautiful time of year, until they all start falling and we have to start raking them all up. Of course my big tree in front of my house doesn’t even start to turn until November. There have been years that my husband decorates for Christmas with the leaves still on the tree.

Onto the reason you are here. Because of my drive yesterday I was very inspired. I have a fall card for you today using multiple bundles/sets from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are inspired by Global Design Project #261. Here are their colors.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #349. Here is their Inspiration board.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #183. Their Theme is ‘Pumpkins’.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday #547.

I started by adhering a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Mint Macaron cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and made it into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch. I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of the copper Brushed Metallic Paper using my Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the pumpkin images from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Gathered Leaves Dies. On the same panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks, 3 times each. The fill images I stamped in the same colors stamping off once. I punched the leaves out using my Autumn Punch Pack. Using my Layering Circle Dies, I cut the 4th largest circle out of a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and the 4th largest scalloped circle out of a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. On the Very Vanilla circle I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink twice. I adhered the Very Vanilla circle to the Mint Macaron scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the pumpkins to the circle using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the pumpkins using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel using the masking technique and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink by the pumpkins. I stamped the leaf image from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside 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 images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and colored them in using my Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink by the pumpkins.

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! 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! 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! Love of Leaves Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  Happy August!! I can’t believe how fast this summer is going.  Does anyone have plans this weekend?  I’m working today, it’s the 1st and I have to get my bills out.  The good news is I have off tomorrow and my boss said to take Monday and Tuesday off too, YAY!!! After working 2 weeks straight it is most welcomed to have off.

For today I have a quick and easy fall card for you using some of the new items coming in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s today’s card.

My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #344.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper to Copper Foil Sheet mats using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted panels to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink between the matted panels.

On a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, I stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  I cut the leaf out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  The Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies are returning from last year.  The best part about this is it is brought back at the bundle price saving you 10%.  I cut Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie leaves from the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I adhered the leaves to the right of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow from the 1/8″ Copper Grosgrain Ribbon, from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the large leaf using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamping off 3 times, over the sentiment.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler 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 stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink, stamping off twice, on the envelope front.  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! 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! 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!!

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!!

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!!
