Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I’m seeing so many pumpkin decor items around so I decided to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle for my card today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I made a horizontal stripe by layering strips of Cork, Harvest Meadow designer series paper, Cajun Craze and Granny Apple Green card stock and adhering it to the card front.
I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins cling stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I colored them with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the stripe with dimensionals and glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Greenery stamp set in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the small Tailor Made Tags die. I cut another tag from the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the back of the Crumb Cake label. I colored a length of white baker’s twine with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and cut a length of Crumb Cake twine. I slipped the twine through the holes in the tags and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with five green Decorative Matte Dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vines on the bottom and colored them with Granny Apple Green, Ole Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
This is my first fall card of the year and it was hard to resist coloring these pumpkins with Stampin’ Blends. But the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle has other cute pumpkin images, wonderful sentiments and gorgeous artsy pumpkin dies that will be loads of fun to play with – such a versatile set.
