Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! Our talented team has created projects this month with the theme of Give Thanks. I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness stamp bundle to make a card with the wonderful wheelbarrow filled with festive fall harvest foods placed against a background of embossed card stock and Plaid Tidings designer series paper.

I started by embossing a panel of Sahara Sand with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and adhering a strip of Plaid Tidings designer series paper across the middle. I adhered a strip of Bumblebee 6″ x 6″ wood grained designer series paper on top of the Plaid Tidings paper and adhered it all to a Sahara Sand mat. Then I wrapped a piece of copper ribbon around it and tied a knot on the side. I adhered the panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the wheelbarrow from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness photopolymer stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out the wheel from copper foil and adhered it to the back and punched a small dot from the copper foil to cover the axel.

I stamped the harvest foods stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Stampin’ Blends – Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green.

I adhered the harvest foods to the wheelbarrow with a little liquid glue and popped the entire piece on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the harvest foods from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness stamp set in the lower corner in Sahara Sand ink after stamping off and adhered a strip of Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Isn’t the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness wheelbarrow the cutest? And it’s great that there are lots stamps and dies that go with it beautifully! And don’t forget that the Plaid Tidings designer series paper is on sale at 15% discount during October! Yay!!

Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Note Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing the third in a series of cards that I made using the sweet Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful photopolymer stamp set. Today’s card is another card that was inspired by one in the Aug-Dec Mini catalog, but I made made major modifications so I can’t really say that I CASE’d it. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Emboss a Crumb Cake panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhere it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. Cut a panel of Calypso Coral paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhere it to the card front on a wonky angle. Use the same die to cut a Whisper White panel.

Stamp the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful photopolymer stamp in Soft Suede ink on the die cut Whisper White panel. Stamp the bird house in Crumb cake ink and stamp another Crumb Cake bird house on the small Whisper White panel. Using the leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set, stamp the leaves in Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee and Calypso Coral ink across the top branches. Stamp a few leaves in Calypso Coral and Bumblebee falling from the tree. Adhere the panel to the card front on an angle opposite from the DSP panel.

Fussy cut the second Crumb Cake bird house with paper snips and pop it on the birdhouse with a piece of dimensional. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Versamark ink on a Calypso Coral strip. Heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder and cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die. Adhere it to the card front with dimensionals. Add some Artistry Blooms adhesive sequins to the tree top and label and wrap a length of Linen Thread around the card fold, making a bow.

Adhere a strip of Calypso Coral paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Stamp the birdhouse from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful stamp set in crumb cake ink in the top corner and stamp more leaves in Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee and Calypso Coral. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.


The Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful Stamp set is really pretty and versatile. The graceful curves of the tree’s trunk and branches make you feel like you’re in a special place, and I haven’t seen a card made with this stamp set that didn’t make me smile.

Stamp the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Gray Granite ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor designer series paper.

Adhere the panel to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the snowflakes on the label after stamping off. Cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhere it to the card front with dimensionals. Finish the card front with Blue Adhesive-Backed gems.

Mask off the birds and stamp the birdhouse in Gray Granite ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp more snowflakes in the corner after stamping off. Trim the bottom with a strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.
