Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle to make a Thanksgiving card for today. I paired it with the pretty Harvest Meadow designer series paper and an embossed Very Vanilla background for a light fall look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using:

And since I’m doing pumpkins, I am playing with the Fall and Pumpkins Inspiration at TGIF Challenges – #TGIFC335 Inspiration Challenge:

I embossed a panel of Very Vanilla with thee Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Thick Very Vanilla Card Base. I cut a Bumblebee panel with the Scalloped Contours die and adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow designer series paper to the front with liquid glue. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I cut a Pumpkin Pie panel with the pumpkin from the Detailed Pumpkins dies and a Mossy Meadow panel with the large leaf. I adhered them together with glue dots. I stamped the leafy pumpkin from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated it with my heat tool until shiny and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I cut the sprigs from the Sunflower dies from brushed copper foil and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the leafy pumpkin on top of the sprigs with dimensionals and adhered the Pumpkin Pie pumpkin on top with dimensionals and glue dots. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso on Soft Succulent and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I made a loopy bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the card with glue dots and topped it with the fussy cut sentiment. I finished the card front with three Genial Gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pumpkin vines from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso on a Very Vanilla panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Harvest Meadow DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The pumpkins in the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle are so artistic and pretty and you can make so many different styles of Fall and Thanksgiving cards. The sentiments are really beautiful as well. I think I’m ready for Fall, are you?
