Stampin’ Up! Plaid Tidings Harvest Hellos Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team theme is “Giving Thanks.”

My card features the Celebration Tidings Bundle from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog and the Harvest Hello stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

The Paper Cuts

  • Cajun Craze Cardstock: a 4 1/4″ x 11″ (scored at 5 1/2″) card base and a die cut of the 2nd largest die from Celebration Labels Dies
  • Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper: a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel, a 4″ x 3/4″ strip for the inside, and a 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ strip for the envelope flap.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel for the front, 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside, a 2 3/4″ x 2″ for stamping, and a die cut of the 3rd largest die from Celebration Labels Dies.
  • Cinnamon Cider Cardstock: a double frond and a single frond die cut from the Sunflower Dies, and a 1″ x 1″ for stamping.
  • Early Expresso Cardstock: a double frond from the Sunflower Dies and 3 sprigs from Celebration Labels Dies.
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 1″ for stamping
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • Stamp the pumpkin from Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 2 3/4″ x 2″ Whisper White Cardstock. Outline the ribs of the pumpkin with the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. Fill in the pumpkin with Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend. Apply Light Pumpkin Pie to the centers of the 3 ribs in the front of the pumpkin to “lift” color to highlight. Punch out with the Apple Builder Punch. Tip: you can use a PostIt Note or flag as a handle if needed.
  • Stamp 2 pumpkin leaves and then the stem in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 2 1/2″ x 1″ Mossy Meadow card piece. Use the punch to cut out the stem. Fussy cut the leaves with Paper Snips.
  • Stamp a pumpkin leaf in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 1″ x 1″ Cinnamon Cider cardstock and fussy cut.
  • Use Cajun Craze Ink to stamp “Grateful” from the “Always Grateful” sentiment in the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set in the top right corner of the Whisper White label. Tip: I used a PostIt flag to cover “Always” before inking and then removed the flag before stamping. Stamp “Always” on the inside card panel.

The Assembly

  • Layer the Whisper White 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel, the Plaid Tidings panel, the Cajun Craze label and the Whisper White label on the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive or Stampin’ Seal.
  • Arrange the frond die cuts and glue into place.
  • Apply a Mini Glue Dot to the front of 2 of the fronds and attach to the pumpkin top on each side. The 3rd one will be glued next to the frond peeking around the pumpkin once attached.
  • Apply a Mini Glue Dot to the bottom, back of the pumpkin stem and attach to the pumpkin.
  • Pop the pumpkin on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a Mossy Meadow leaf at the stem with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Add the other 2 leaves at the bottom right with the stems glued and the overhanging edges with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Add 3 gold Metallic Pearls.
  • Adhere the stamped Whisper White panel to the inside of the card. Add the 4″ x 3/4″ plaid strip at the bottom.
  • Apply glue to the envelope flap and apply the remaining plaid DSP. Use scissors to cut away the excess.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Pumpkin September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit and Alternatives

I want to share with you some of the projects I’ve made with the Hello Pumpkin September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit. I am always amazed upon the kit’s arrival at the quantity and quality you get for the subscription price. It contains an exclusive stamp set, an ink spot and everything else need to complete the professionally designed projects from adhesive to a paper ruler! This kit does not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I’ll share how I organize some of the many items for ease of creating in this post. I hope you’ll enjoy the projects and will find the tips helpful.

The kit was originally designed to make 20 treat holders that could be decorated for fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving! There are lots of pieces to allow you to create them any way you want. Here are three of mine.

They hold 4 Hersey Nuggets perfectly if you place them in as shown. I found it easiest to lay the popper down once burnished and adhered and slide them in one pair after the other. Otherwise they twist around as you drop them in. The instructions advise for 12″ of the bakers twine for each end, but I found 10 1/2″ to be a comfortable amount to tie the bow with ample tails.

I also made a few cards. For this one I added a Cajun Craze card base, a Subtle 3D embossed Pumpkin Pie Layer and a Plaid Tidings DSP Rectangle Stitched die cut. I stamped the pumpkin from the stamp set in the kit, added the Halloween face and used Stampin’ Blends to color it on Whisper White. I cut it with the So Sentimental die cut. I added one of the witches hats, flowers, swirl, leaves and label from the kit. The flower centers are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The inside included a sentiment and two labels from the kit as well as the Plaid DSP (on the envelope flap, too).

The other 4 cards I’ve made so far are CASEd from my spline, the amazing Amy Koenders. You can see her blog post here. Super sweet design!

I have lots of pieces and bases left to do more creating which leads to a couple more tips.

  • To glue the lacy die cuts in place I found small dots of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue the easiest. You’ll use less glue than you think. That stuff goes a long way and has lots of hold.
  • All the little pieces are great, but punching them out one at a time when I need them and sometimes having them fall out when I don’t can frustrate me and take up too much time. So, I put an old craft supply I wasn’t using to good use. Do you know what it is? I keep the large pieces and the stamp set in a regular stamp case.

Here is the Stampin’ Up! video showing you how to put this kit together to make the treat holders:

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello Miss You Card

This card features the Harvest Hello Stamp Cling Stamp Set and the coordinating Apple Builder Punch. Don’t you love the Fall colors? Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Sahara Sand Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and the second smallest Stitched Nested Labels die.
  • Cajun Craze Cardstock: Pumpkin Punch
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3″ x 5 1/2″ and a leaf.
  • Soft Suede Cardstock: a scrap for the stem punch.

The Creating

  • I used Cajun Craze Ink to randomly stamp the pumpkin, stem and leaf on the Sahara Sand card base. Masking helped to get the stems and leaves in place.
  • I stamped a pumpkin with Cajun Craze Ink on Cajun Craze Cardstock, a stem in Soft Suede Ink on Soft Suede Cardstock and a leaf in Mossy Meadow Ink on Mossy Meadow Cardstock. I punched the pumpkin, stem and fussy cut the leaf. I glued the stem and leaf to the pumpkin and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Sahara Sand Cardstock with Cajun Craze Ink and then cut it with the 2nd smallest Stitched Nested Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back left side.
  • I ran the Mossy Meadow Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine in the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder then wrapped Linen Thread around it twice vertically and tied a double bow.
  • I adhered the embossed panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and popped the pumpkin and label on.
  • I stamped the sentiment and leaves on the inside of the card and the pumpkin and leaf on the envelope with Cajun Craze Ink.
