Good Morning! Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season photopolymer stamp set used for Fall cards? Last week I made a #simplestamping Christmas card with this set and I wanted to keep playing with this set and make a Thanksgiving card. I have seen a few and I was also inspired by a thank you card that I saw in the store, so I decided to give it a try. Here is the result. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I couldn’t post my Facebook Live video, but I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and here it is:
I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in Soft Succulent, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla panel. For each image, I did a second generation (aka stamp off once) stamping over the first leaf, but slightly offset. This made the ‘bouquet’ look fuller. Then I stamped the berries in Merry Merlot.
I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D embossing folder to give it more texture and I adhered it to a Merry Merlot mat with liquid glue. I wrapped the panel with Very Vanilla Baker’s twine twice and made a bow on the side.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Merry Merlot on a Cinnamon Cider panel and cut it out with the die from the Seasonal Labels bundle using the two step method. In the video, I made the first cut all the way, and it worked beautifully with this label die. But you have to be careful if using a stitched label die, because you will get stitching all the way to the end. I should have mentioned this in the video, but I didn’t think about it until afterwards.
I adhered the label over the vanilla twine with dimensionals and added three clear Genial Gems around the label. I popped the panel on the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base with dimensionals and trimmed the bow ends.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season stamp set in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! Christmas Season images are beautiful in fall colors! The shadow stamping technique works very well with these beautiful images as well. Give it a try!
