Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello Fall Card

Good Morning! Here’s a Fall hello card made with the pretty leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle, the Playful Alphabet Dies and the wonderful Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock Mat. I cut three each of the F-A-L-L letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies and adhered them together so that each letter was three deep. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Best Year cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of Bumblebee card stock and cut it out with the small long stitched rectangle die using the two step die cutting method.

I stamped six maple leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze card stock and cut them out with the coordinating punch. I cut a panel of vellum with the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered the letters leaves and label to the vellum panel.

I adhered the vellum panel to the DSP panel with glue dots placed behind the letters, leaves and label. I made a loopy bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the label. I finished the panel with three Bumblebee enamel dots and popped the panel to the front of a Bumblebee card base with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the last three of the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn punched maple leaves. I added a Pretty Peacock mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love using vellum on cards and I also love die cut words, so this card combines two of my favorites with the pretty Plaid Tidings paper for a card to welcome Fall!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The beautiful leaf cluster stamps and dies in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle are wonderful in all the different shades of green. But I have been impressed by the Fall take on these leaves and have wanted to use them in different colors. We have a color challenge in our Blog Hop today and its the perfect occasion to use these stamps in different colors. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Like I said we have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. Be sure to check out all the pretty projects in the Blog Hop!

I started by stamping six leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White after stamping off once. I cut them out with the coordinating die. I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to a Whisper White mat.

I punched three small leaf clusters from the Forever Gold Laser Cut specialty designer series paper and cut two Forever Flourishing dies from Cajun Craze card stock. I arranged them with the stamped and die cut leaves on the embossed panel. I adhered them with liquid glue and added a piece of dimensional behind the tops of the small Blackberry Bliss leaves in the front to add dimension. I wrapped a length of Vanilla ribbon around the bottom of the arrangement securing it in the back and tied a piece of gold cord around the ribbon making a bow on the side.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Whisper White panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I popped it on the panel with dimensionals and adhered the panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three clear Wonderful Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped some leaves in Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze on the top and bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So I got all five Challenge colors in the card along with some touches of gold. I’m really impressed that these leaves are also so beautiful in these colors!

Stampin’ Up! September Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin

Hello! Last week I received my September Paper Pumpkin kit and I put together some of the cracker boxes. I am planning to fill the cracker boxes with Halloween treats to give out, so I pretty stuck with the Halloween themes and used the black cat and witches’ hat. I didn’t decorate them with as many flowers and leaves as in the video, but they’re still cute!

The pumpkin die cuts were too cute, so I paired them with the Whisper White note cards and envelopes to make some cute Thanksgiving cards. I did use more of the flowers and leaves for these cards and added a few items from my stash.

Don’t you just love those little filigree panels and the swirls? There are lots of the leaves and flower die cuts left, so I’ll incorporate them into more fall and Thanksgiving cards for friends. Here are the contents of the kit. Note that it includes a Cajun Craze Stampin’ Spot!

And here’s the stamp set that is included – such a pretty witches’ hat!!

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the cracker treat boxes:

And here are some more alternative projects made by the Paper Pumpkin team.

If you are interested in how to make these projects and seeing other alternative ideas, visit the Paper Pumpkin Facebook Blog. They describe how to make each of these alternative projects and they have additional ideas from demonstrators on projects using the September Paper Pumpkin kit.

Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder Christmas Card

Good Morning! Today I made a tag Christmas Card with the pretty new Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder bundle and the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Real Red ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a black mat. I added a matted stripe of a Garden Green ‘Tis The Season paper across the middle and popped the panel on the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals. I cut another piece of the ‘Tis The Season DSP with the tag die from the North Pole Wonder Dies and adhered on top of a Garden Green tag to give it some thickness. I looped a length of red braided thread through the hole.

I stamped the sled from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Soft Suede, Real Red and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating North Pole Wonder Dies and adhered it to the front of the tag. Then I cut the deer from the brushed copper foil using the deer die. I adhered the deer to the sled and then adhered both to the tag. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and cut it out with the circle die and adhered it to a die cut Garden Green pinked circle. I adhered the layered circle to the top of the tag and popped everything on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set until shiny and trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick A Punch before adhering it to the bottom of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I finished the card with three clear Wonderful Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder stamp set in Real Red ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the mistletoe in Garden Green ink after stamping off in the top and bottom corner. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Wishes & Wonder bundle has the gorgeous sled stamp and deer and fun coordinating stamps and dies that can be combined to create beautifully layered tags and cards. Click on the picture below for all the details in my Online Store.
