Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! We returned to PA last week, just in time for the Fall Foliage to peak, so I was inspired to use the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set to capture the beauty. I finally finished my card and used the pretty sentiments from the Very Best Occasion cling stamp set with it. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the oak leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set several times on a Very Vanilla panel. I used a technique where I inked the stamp in one color and used a sponge dauber to apply a second color to parts of the leaf before stamping the image on the card stock. I used Crumb Cake with Parakeet Party, Calypso Coral with Parakeet Party and Crushed Curry with Calypso Coral. I cleaned the stamp after each leaf and rubbed out the excess color from my sponge daubers to keep my ink pad colors from mixing.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Crushed Curry strip and trimmed the end with my paper snips. I folded a length of natural ribbon, secured the middle with a glue dot and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and finished it with a rustic metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Crushed Curry and Calypso coral and stamped it next to the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

We had beautiful Fall Foliage this week, but after Halloween, half of the trees are bare – the peak passed so fast! Falling leaves are so peaceful, and these sentiments are so pretty, making a nice fall friendship card, encouragement card or even a get well card.

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest designer series paper is a really pretty and versatile Fall themed paper and I’ve recently seen cards featuring the designs colored with blends! Coloring DSP is always fun and I decided to use this technique for today’s card. 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.

I adhered a panel of Crushed Curry Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Crushed Curry Card base with liquid glue. I cut a Mossy Meadow panel of the DSP with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the card front on an angle.

I colored the veggie panel of the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSP with Stampin’ Blends – light Daffodil Delight on the Crushed Curry squashes, light Soft Suede on the acorns and stems, light Old Olive on the Mossy Meadow squashes and oak leaves, light Pumpkin Pie on the Cajun Craze pumpkins and light Fresh Freesia on the Merry Merlot leaves. I cut the panel with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front on the opposite angle with liquid glue.

I wrapped the card with black and white gingham ribbon and made a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed with Nature photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry and cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and finished it with a black matte dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the squiggly from the Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored a strip of Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSP using Stampin’ Blends like the front panel and adhere it to the bottom of the inside panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Here is the card I made during my video with my sample card. For my sample, I reversed the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSPs and used a Mossy Meadow card base with an Old Olive label. I love those pretty veggie images and I love the softer tone that you get by coloring the white. Plus it’s easy and fun.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest You Are A Blessing Card

Good Morning! Do you plant mums in the Fall? I always do! I love the yellow and red ones, and that’s why I love the beautiful floral images in the Rustic Harvest designer series paper. It’s perfect when paired with the wonderful bold sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle like today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Merry Merlot panel with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Merry Merlot card base. I adhered a panel of the pretty floral Rustic Harvest designer series paper to a Basic Black mat – I chose a DSP panel with a Merry Merlot mum!

I wrapped a length of black and white gingham ribbon around the panel and made a bow on the right side. I adhered a length of white ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the DSP panel with part of the ribbon peeking out with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest DSP and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes banner die. I cut a Basic Black label with the same die and adhered it to the back to make it thicker and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I finished the card front with Iridescent Pearls.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White. I cut two of the smallest butterflies from the Brilliant Wings dies and adhered them together with liquid glue. I adhered the butterfly to the panel and trimmed the side with a strip of floral DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

My pretty card is CASE’d from a similar card in the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog. I haven’t used Merry Merlot in a long while and I’m so glad that I pulled it out for this card because the color is so rich! I hope you like it as much as I do.


Join me for a Facebook Live this Afternoon!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to make a card. Join me as I make another card featuring the Rustic Harvest designer series paper. Look forward to seeing you then!

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

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the sweet Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle with the Rustic Harvest designer series paper to make a Fall theme friendship card. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

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

I used the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies to cut a plaid panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper and adhered it to the side of a Mossy Meadow DSP panel with some of the circle overlapping the edge. I cut off the excess with my paper snips and adhered the layered Rustic Harvest panel to a Basic White mat. I adhered it to the front of a Cajun Craze card base.

I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on the Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest DSP. I cut it out with the Stylish Shapes wide banner die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I inked up the leaf stamp with Crumb Cake ink and used a sponge dauber to add some Cajun Craze ink spots before stamping it on Basic White. I did this twice and cut the leaves out with the coordinating die. I adhered the leaves to the card front with glue dots.

I cut a Cajun Craze panel of Rustic Harvest DSP with the pumpkin dies from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest bundle and sponged Cajun Craze ink on the edges. I adhered the die cuts together with dimensionals. I cut the stem out out of a Mossy Meadow panel of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered it to the top with liquid glue. I cut the pumpkin vine tendrils from the Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest DSP and adhered them to the pumpkin with liquid glue. I adhered the pumpkin to the card front with dimensionals and added a linen thread bow and three Amber Rhinestones to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake ink and sponged some Cajun Craze ink on it. I stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel and adhered a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Are you ready for Fall? My busy summer is winding down and the pretty Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest is the perfect bundle to be crafting with these days. With the pretty pumpkins and sweet sunflowers it’s the perfect set for fall inspiration!

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.
