Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle with the Rustic Harvest designer series paper for an Autumn Wishes card. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a fun color challenge this week. The Rustic Harvest DSP was perfect for this and I popped it with Sweet Sorbet.

I adhered a panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper to a Basic Black card base with liquid glue. I cut the large floral dies from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle from Basic White using both the detailed die and the outline die. I cut the outline die from a Basic Black panel and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Sweet Sorbet and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered a folded length of black and white gingham ribbon and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the flower over the ribbon and label with dimensionals and finished with three white dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Sweet Sorbet and Basic Black Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Fond Of Autumn bundle is really pretty and perfect for fall cards! I can’t wait to play with it again!

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! One of the die sets that is available this month as part of the Perfect Partners promotion is the Apple Blossoms Dies and they coordinate with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest cling stamp set. I used the stamp set and dies to make this pretty thank you card because I went apple picking last weekend at my local orchard! It was so much fun and the weather was beautiful! But back to the card – you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the two small panels of the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the card front and the small Sweet Sorbet panel with liquid glue. I adhered the large Sweet Sorbet DSP panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I used Tear & Tape adhesive to adhere the small layered panel to the front of the card, being careful not to tape the card shut. I cut a panel of Basic White with the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die. I used a blending brush to apply a light wash of Pool Party ink across the front. I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the the apple branch and the single apple from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the apples in Sweet Sorbet and the leaves in Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I used Soft Suede for the stem and seeds and added touches of light So Saffron to the apple center and light Petal Pink to the flower centers. I cut the apples out with the coordinating dies from the Apple Blossom dies and adhered the single apple to the card front with liquid glue.

I adhered the second apple die cut to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Versamark ink on Sweet Sorbet and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the label die from the Tree Trimmings dies, another die set that is available as part of the Perfect Partners promotion this month. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I adhered some light Tahitian Tide matte dots to the card around the flowers and leaves. I made a bow from Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, used the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in the corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the center and adhered the die cut rectangle to the inside of the card with liquid glue so that it is hidden under the front flap when the card is closed.

The Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set is such a pretty set and I love the wonderful dies that the Perfect Partners promotion brings!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Card

Good Morning! Here is the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Christmas card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. It’s been a while since I did a video and it was good to get back into the swing of things – my plan is to continue to do this weekly on Sunday afternoons.

This bundle is so festive and fun! It goes well with the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper, you can even use the dies to cut out candy canes from the DSP! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

Use the large striped background die from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle to cut a white glimmer paper panel and adhere the die cut stripes to the front of a Sweet Sorbet Card base. Cut a panel of Basic White with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle dies and a panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP with the second largest stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the circles together and adhere them to the center of the card with liquid glue.

Use the Christmas Banners dies to cut a panel of Soft Succulent card stock with the pine sprig die and a panel of Shaded Spruce with the leaf sprig die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp two of the small leaf sprigs from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Adhere them to the card front with glue dots. Stamp the candy cane in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. Adhere the candy cane to the card front with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White. Cut it out with the wide banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. Loop a length of white baker’s twine through the top of a Jingle Bell trinket and make a bow. Adhere the jingle bell to the card front with a glue dot. Finish the card with three dots of red pearlized enamel accents and let them dry for about 1 hour so they don’t smudge (I did the inside of the card first and then had a finished card when the dots dried!).

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel. Stamp the little leaf sprig in Garden Green under the sentiment and adhere a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love candy canes and always put them on my Christmas Tree, so the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes is perfect to celebrate the holiday! The sentiments are wonderful for holiday greetings inside and outside your card and when paired with the Christmas Banners bundle and the Sweet Christmas DSP, you have everything you need for a variety of beautiful Christmas cards, tags and favors!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made another Fall hello note card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle. I love the debossed die cut pumpkin on card stock – you can really see the texture! You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a sketch challenge this week and this was a challenge! I softened the angles by using the curvy Seasonal Labels dies – it’s kind of close.

I was also inspired by the pretty fall colors in the Sunday Stamps SSC291 Autumn Rays Challenge:

I embossed a Crushed Curry panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper with the beautiful Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Crushed Curry Card base. I cut a Mossy Meadow panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP with the large Seasonal Label die and embossed it with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder before adhering it to the card front.

I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry. I stamped the dotted line under the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black before cutting it out with the Seasonal Labels die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I colored a Textural Element berry branch with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend and adhered it with glue dots. I cut the pumpkin from Pumpkin Pie and the stem from Soft Suede. I put them together with liquid glue before adhering them to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped 4 flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White. I colored them with Cajun Craze and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the card with an amber gemstone.

For the inside of the card, I the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Cajun Craze and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle is pretty versatile with the pretty stamped and die pumpkins and fall flowers. I hope you agree my interpretation of the Blog Hop sketch is close enough.

Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly Cards

Good Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had our Inkin’ Krew Quarterly Team meeting yesterday and had fun making beautiful Christmas cards with the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. Inkin’ Krew teammates Darryl Robbins from Saginaw, MI, Carol Buckalew from Claymont, DE and I designed cards and led the team in making the cards for the virtual team meeting on Zoom. You can find the supplies we used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I designed the first card which doesn’t use any of the dies in the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. I stamped the berries first in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler and then masked them before stamping the leaves in Shaded Spruce, both stamped off and full strength.

I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and then adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and Shaded Spruce card base.

I stamped berries and leaves using the same berry mask and stamped the sentiment in Real Red for the inside panel.

And I even made an envelope stamped with more berries and leaves.

Darryl designed this fabulous slimline easel card using the beautiful Boughs of Holly designer series paper and the dies from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. The card base is Mossy Meadow and the mats are Cherry Cobbler. The gorgeous label die is cut from Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment and berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The leaves stamped in Mossy Meadow on Mossy Meadow card stock go beautifully with the pretty DSP.

The inside sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow and a berry branch Textural Element colored in Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends props the card front for display!

This slimline card fits the new Stampin’ Up! slimline envelopes as well!

Carol designed this gorgeous Z-fold card and also used the beautiful Boughs of Holly DSP along with the beautiful dies from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly bundle. The berries are die cut from Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler and the pine sprig accents are die cut from Soft Succulent and Basic White.

An Evening Evergreen square with striped Boughs of Holly DSP set off the gorgeous Brushed Metallic foil leaves and gold metallic ribbon. Basic White and Soft Succulent die cut pine sprigs and Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler die cut berries are tucked in with the gold. It’s all topped off with the sentiment label, stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

She finished the inside with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and covered the envelope flap with the Boughs of Holly DSP.

I love how the versatility of this fabulous bundle is highlighted by these wonderful Christmas cards! You can stamp the berries and leaves, or just die cut them or do both and it comes out beautiful!

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings cling stamp set for a layered Fall Hello card today. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week and we’re making Fall projects!

I embossed a Sahara Sand panel with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat before adhering it to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with liquid glue. I adhered a panel of Cajun Craze Rustic Harvest DSP to an Early Espresso mat and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the pretty leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the sentiment over the leaf in Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the 2nd largest stitched circle die from the Stylish Shapes dies. I cut another circle from Early Espresso using the 2nd largest circle die from the Layering Circles dies and adhered them together with liquid glue – the Layering Circle die makes the perfect mat!

I adhered a folded length of Natural Woven ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the layered circle over the ribbon with dimensionals. I finished off the card with three amber faceted gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped parts of the large leaf with seeds from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp in Crushed Curry in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

My maple trees haven’t started turning yet, but this stamp set captures them perfectly. And the sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set are wonderful and written with a beautiful font. They’re one of my favorites.

Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Fall Note Card

Good Morning! Here’s a Fall Note Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle and the Rustic Harvest designer series paper. 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 pretty Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Basic Black card base with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and used a Blending Brush to color it with Crushed Curry ink.

I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and wrapped it twice with linen thread, making a bow on the side. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the letters from the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry. I stamped the frame around the letter and punched them out with the Best Label punch. I made each letter one at a time and then adhered them to the card with dimensionals. I finished the card with three rustic metallic dots.

I kept the inside of the card simple so there’s plenty of room to write a note. I colored a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP with a Blending Brush and Crushed Curry ink and adhered it to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The pretty Rustic Harvest DSP is perfect for this time of year and the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle makes a perfect sentiment. This bundle is so versatile, it’s become one of my favorites!

Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I love a Christmas Card with a pretty Christmas card and I used the Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree photopolymer stamp set for my Christmas Card today. And since it’s September, the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Partners promotion has begun and I used the coordinating Tree Trimmings dies to cut out my tree for the card front. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I used the 4th smallest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a Real Red panel of Sweetest Christmas designer series paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I used the next largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a striped panel of DSP and adhered it to a Real Red mat before adhering it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large Christmas Tree from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Garden Green on Soft Sea Foam card stock. I inked up the smaller detailed tree stamp in Garden Green and stamped it off before stamping over the tree. Isn’t it pretty how the three shades of green give texture and dimension to the tree? I cut out the stamped tree with the outline die from the Tree Trimmings dies. I cut a tree stand from Crumb Cake card stock and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I cut a star from Crushed Curry and adhered it to the tree top with a glue dot. I used dimensionals to adhere the tree and star to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Real Red ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the pretty label die from the Tree Trimmings dies and adhered it to a Garden Green ribbon with glue dots. I adhered the label and ribbon to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and decorated the tree with Red Rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Trimming The Tree stamp set in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fir sprig from the Christmas Banners photopolymer stamp set in Garden Green ink next to the sentiment and adhered a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I’m so excited about the Perfect Partners promotion, bringing coordinating dies to some favorite stamp sets. So be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Card

Good Morning! Here’s a simple Autumn Hello card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle and the Rustic Harvest designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a strip of the pretty Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base. I used a sponge dauber to color the leaves on another strip in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry inks and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the oak leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie. I cut out the leaves with the coordinating die and adhered them to the card front with glue dots. I made a loopy bow with linen thread and adhered it to the card with a glue dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black on a Basic White panel. I stamped the little squiggle under the sentiment and cut it out with the third largest stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes die. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with an Amber faceted gem.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set along the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The pretty images in the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set are perfect for Fall greeting cards and the sentiments are wonderful as well. Especially paired with the pretty Rustic Harvest DSP.
