Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Season of Thanks Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set. This set has been my go to for fall cards and with the Come to Gather Designer Series paper, beautiful fall cards are so easy to put together. 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 Merry Merlot maple leaf paper from the Come To Gather DSP pack and adhered it to a Cajun Craze card base. Then I took a panel of the wood panelling paper and adhered it to the bottom. I stamped the large maple leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla and die cut it with the coordinating die. I colored it with Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.

I stamped the pumpkins in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut the out with the coordinating dies. I colored the stems with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the pumpkins themselves with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. I then die cut the other two leaves from Old Olive and Cajun Craze cardstock. I adhered the smaller leaves to the card front with liquid glue and the large leaf and pumpkins with dimensionals.

I stamped the Season of Thanks sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Cajun Craze card stock. I used the large label from the Merry Christmas dies to cut it out. I arranged the die on the left side and cut it out, leaving a large space on the right. I moved the die to make the left side the same size as the right and ran it through the die cutting machine again to get a shorter label that matched the greeting. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I made a bow with the bride copper trim and attached it to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the maple leaf in Cajun Craze ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock after stamping it off 4 times. I added a strip of the same maple leaf DSP to the bottom of the panel and attached it to the inside of the card.

Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Fall Thank You Card

Good Morning! Boy, I’m really on a roll with the new Stampin’ Up! Gather Together bundle. I’ve made about 1/2 dozen different designs for classes and tutorials as well as this blog. I think it’s because we’re in the season and the bundle and papers are so pretty and versatile. This card is a Thank You card that combines the Gather Together bundle with the Well Written dies.

This is a card that I designed for my Cardmaking 101 video series on Facebook. It’s the first time I’ve introduced die cuts in the series and these are the perfect sets to introduce this wonderful technique. Here is the card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And here is a link to the how-to video that I shared earlier on Facebook Live. Instructions for creating the card are in the video. I apologize ahead of time for it being so long – my goal is to improve each video in both production and instructional quality.

I intend to set up a YouTube channel in the near future so you can view my videos there as well, but I’m still learning how to set this up, so for now I am only on Facebook and here.

Here’s a closeup of the card front details:

Thanks for visiting and watching. Have a great weekend!
