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! 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! 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.

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I have another simple card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous photopolymer stamp set. I paired it with the beautiful Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World designer series paper and the Tailor Made Tags dies for a hello card. 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 Daffodil Delight striped Wonderful World designer series paper to a floral pattern of the DSP and then adhered them both to the front of an Orchid Oasis card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous photopolymer stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on an Orchid Oasis panel and cut it out with the second largest angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut another panel of floral Wonderful World DSP with the same tag die and adhered it to the back of the sentiment tag.

I cut a length of white frayed ribbon and looped it through the tag holes. I wrapped it with a length of linen thread and made a bow before adhering the tags to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the tag with an iridescent pearl.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous stamp set in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Wonderful World DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Wonderful World designer series paper is available with a beautiful coordinating floral stamp set for free with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration. It’s beautiful and versatile, as you can see paired with the wonderful sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous stamp set. But Sale-A-Bration is almost over – it ends on Wednesday August 31! So hurry and get it before it’s gone!


Sale-A-Bration is Ending Soon!

Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Hello Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle is a fun alphabet stamp set with a coordinating punch that lets you create one of a kind sentiments in a fun way. I paired it with the beautiful designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World bundle for a bright and cheerful Hello card. 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 Wonderful World DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat and adhered it to another DSP panel. I adhered the panel to another Pear Pizzazz mat and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Polished Pink card base.

I stamped the letters from the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest photopolymer stamp set in Melon Mambo ink on Basic White. I stamped each letter one at a time and then punched it out with the Best Label punch. I lined up the bottom of the letter with the last notch in the punch and made sure it was centered right to left before punching.

I adhered the letters starting with the ‘o’ with liquid glue so I could wiggle them a little to keep the letters evenly spaced and straight. I finished the front with three iridescent pearls.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the floral Wonderful World DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat. I adhered the layered strip to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This was really fun and it turned out to be fairly easy to line up the letters, even with my wonky vision! My goal was to line up the letters straight, but you can also use a design with letters on different angles. The Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle would also be great to make custom cards spelling out names. The stamp set also has numbers and backgrounds that fit the punch, so it’s very versatile.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest What’s New Card

Good Morning! I finally pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle for a pumpkin card and I paired it with the gorgeous Rustic Harvest Designer series paper. I also used the pretty Charming Sentiments bundle for a fun take on my sentiment for 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 Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Basic Black card base with liquid glue. I adhered another panel of the DSP to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Old Olive and Crumb Cake on Basic White card stock. I stamped two of each color and cut them out with the coordinating die and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the pumpkin from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I cut the pumpkin vines from Mossy Meadow and adhered them to the pumpkin with dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Pumpkin Pie and cut it out with the coordinating die. I popped it on the pumpkin with dimensionals.

I stamped three little flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and colored them with Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the coordinating die and adhered them with glue dots and dimensionals. I used the dies from the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing folder to cut the acorn – the cap from Early Espresso and the bottom from Soft Suede. I adhered the acorn to the card with glue dots and finished with a black baker’s twine bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic white and colored it with Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle is a wonderful fall set and the Rustic Harvest DSP is just beautiful! With Summer in full swing, it’s nice to start looking forward to the to the cooler fall temperatures and pumpkins!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of a pretty new fall set from the upcoming July – December 2022 Mini Catalog – the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle. It coordinates with the beautiful Rustic Harvest designer series paper which I feature in this simple Hello card. These pretty products will be available on July 1, 2022 when the new catalog is open for ordering! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a strip of Mossy Meadow swirly Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the side of the beautiful floral DSP with liquid glue. I adhered them both to a Basic White mat and looped a length of black Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied a bow.

I adhered the panel to the front of a Basic Black card base with dimensionals. I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Daffodil Delight panel. I punched the ends of the panel with the Lovely Labels pick a punch to make it fancy.

I adhered the label to the card front by the bow with dimensionals. I finished the card front with two small white matte dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little swirl design from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink in the corners of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Mossy Meadow swirly Rustic Harvest DSP to the side before adhering it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

This is a real simple Hello card, but I wanted to let the pretty mums in the DSP be the star. I love the fancy font in the bold Hello from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set which also comes with a pretty pumpkin, gorgeous flowers and a fun leaf in addition to the fun swirls and sentiments. The coordinating Rustic Pumpkin dies that come in the bundle cut out these images and create a fun die cut pumpkin. Take a look at the bundle:

And here is the beautiful Rustic Harvest DSP with the pretty fall pumpkins and gourds and pretty patterns. And the back sides of the paper feature fun designs in Black & White.

All of these new products will be available on July 1, 2022 when the upcoming July – December 2022 Mini Catalog is available for ordering.

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Hello Card

Good Morning! One of the prettiest bundles in the retiring January-June 2022 Mini Catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home bundle. And happily, the bundle is carried over in the current Annual Catalog, but sadly the coordinating Heart & Home designer series paper is on the retiring list. It is such a pretty paper pack, so I wanted to pull it out for a simple card to show off the pretty DSP. And I paired it with the gorgeous Hello There sentiment from the Nature’s Prints cling stamp set. 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 floral Heart & Home designer series paper to a Garden Green leafy panel and adhered them both to a Garden Green mat. I embossed a panel of Vellum with the Hive 3D embossing folder and adhered the layered DSP panel to the front with liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Fresh Freesia with the floral die from the Honeybee Blooms dies and I cut the grass blades from Garden green. I adhered the die cuts to the corner of the DSP. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set on Basic White and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes stitched circle die. I adhered the die cut circle to the layered panel with dimensionals.

Now that I had my main elements on my panel, I adhered the layered vellum panel to the front of a Pale Papaya card base with liquid glue applied to the places covered by card stock. I stamped the pretty bee from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home cling stamp set in Basic Gray on Basic White and colored it with the light Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blend. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished the card front with three iridescent gemstones and a white crinkle ribbon bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little bee and wildflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home stamp set in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green leafy Heart & Home DSP mat and adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card.

Flowers and bees make the perfect summertime hello card!

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Card

Good Morning! One of the prettiest sets in the retiring January-June 2022 Mini Catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle. It coordinates with the Artfully Composed designer series paper to make fun cards with a tropical flair. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the pretty sketch challenge in Freshly Made Sketches #538:

I embossed a Basic White panel with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Basic White card base. I adhered two strips of Artfully Composed designer series paper vertically to the left side of the card with liquid glue and adhered another strip across the top.

I cut an Evening Evergreen panel with the leaf from the Tropical Layers dies and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered cling stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Layering Designs vellum. I let the ink dry a bit and cut out the circle with the Stylish Shapes dies. I adhered the leaf die cut to the die cut vellum with glue dots.

I adhered the die cuts to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with a Polished Dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set in Mint Macaron and Calypso coral on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to an Artfully Composed DSP mat and adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card.

One of the best things about the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set are the fun, casual sentiments. They go great with the relaxed tropical leaf designs. These products are on the retiring list and the best part is that the dies and the DSP are on sale!! Be sure to check them out before they’re gone!

Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered Hello Card

Good Morning! I used the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle with the Artfully Composed designer series paper for a simple and colorful tropical hello card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used the little geometric die cut from the Tropical Layers dies in the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle to cut a little design in the corners of a panel of Artfully Composed designer series paper and adhered it to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with liquid glue. I cut another panel of the DSP with the second largest long stitched rectangle die and cut it in half. I adhered the pieces to the bottom of the card front with a gap in the middle.

I cut a panel of the DSP with the greenery with the Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front, covering the split DSP die cut. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set in Evening Evergreen on Pear Pizzazz and cut it out with the second smallest long stitched rectangle die. I used the spatter stamp from the Your Biggest Fan stamp set to apply some Pale Papaya ink over the label and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I cut the tropical leaf with the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle from Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I adhered a linen thread bow with a glue dot and finished the card with three Faux sea glass shapes.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set in Old Olive and Evening Evergreen in the corner of a Basic White panel. I used the Your Biggest Fan spatter stamp to stamp some Pale Papaya over the leaves and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle along with the Artfully Composed DSP are some of the most unique and fun items in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. The bold tropical foliage is beautiful and go well with any other tropical stamp set. And the sentiments are casual and fun – just like a tropical vacation.
