Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins “Giving Thanks” Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for October! Today we are sharing “Giving Thanks” projects. At the bottom of my post you will find links to hop along the way to my teammate’s projects. Be sure to visit them all to see how each interpreted the theme. I hope you like what I made for you!

I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set + Detailed Pumpkins Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 48) to make this “Giving Thanks” card.  The fonts in this set are so pretty and the dies are incredible! Enjoy the card…

The Paper Cuts

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper: largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Brushed Metallic Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel), the 3rd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies and 3″ x 3″ (stamping/die cutting)
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 1 of each of the pumpkin leaves dies from Detailed Pumpkin Dies
  • Cork Specialty Paper: 4″ x 3/4″

The Creating

I began by stamping the pumpkin trio and the smaller blossom image onto the 3″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image with Light and Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends, Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, Light Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend, and Light and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

I stamped the pumpkin trio image with Pumpkin Pie Ink on the lower left corner of the Basic White inside panel and the Basic White Medium Envelope. I added a little Wink of Stella to the leaves for some sparkle! I also stamped the “so thankful for you” sentiment on the top right corner of the Basic White Stitched Rectangle die cut in Early Expresso Ink.

With Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the DSP panel, the bronze Brushed Metallic Cardstock panel, the Basic White Stitched Rectangle and the Cork strip to the card front. I popped up the pumpkin trio die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the blossom image with liquid glue where it touches the pumpkins and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals where it touches the cork. The die cut leaves and the inside panel are adhered with liquid glue.
