Stampin’ Up! Autumn Goodness Card and Gift Tin for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team theme is “Fall Frenzy.” I am featuring the Autumn Goodness Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! August-December Mini Catalog. The project includes a card and the new Round Tin filled with Peanut M&Ms. Enjoy!

The Stamping

  • I began by stamping the following in Tuxedo Black Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 cornstalk bundles, 2 vegetable arrangements and the two sentiments.
  • I colored the images with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Old Olive.
  • I die cut the images with their coordinating dies and the sentiments with the 2 smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.
  • I also cut 2 fence dies from Soft Suede Cardstock. These I glued together at the first posts of each piece snipping off the cross slats before hand.
  • I used soft make-up brushes to ink a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Old Olive Ink Pads for the sunset. I cut it out with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die. I also cut a 2nd one from Very Vanilla Cardstock for the inside on which I stamped the remaining sentiments. I found it useful to use my Stamparatus to line up the “Thankful” and “for you” stamps.

The Assembly

  • I adhered the sunset rectangle with Liquid Adhesive and then the fence. I let it hang over on either side and trimmed it down afterwards.
  • I added the center corn stalk with Liquid Adhesive and popped the other 2 with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also popped the vegetable arrangement with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used half ones on the branch and leaves.
  • The sentiment label has two Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the lower left edge with adhesive where it touches the cornstalk bundles.
  • I adhered the remaining cornstalk bundle on the inside of the card.
  • On the Round Tin, I adhered the cornstalk die and the sentiment label with Mini Glue Dots.
  • The vegetable arrangement is popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a double Linen Thread bow with a Mini Glue Dot.
