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! Autumn Goodness Thankful Card

This card features the Autumn Goodness Stamp Set and the Plaid Tiding Designer Series Paper along with the most used die set in my collection, Stitched Rectangle Dies…a must have. I am in love with this color combination of Pretty Peacock and Pumpkin Pie. I hope you like it, too. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die
  • Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die, a 4″ x 3/4″ strip for the inside and a 2″ x 5 3/4″ strip for the envelope flap.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2 3/8″ x 3 11/16″ Stitched Rectangle Die and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel for the inside.

The Creating

  • I used my Stamparatus to line up and stamp the pumpkin image and greeting from the Autumn Goodness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.
  • I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce.
  • I cut it with the 2 3/8″ x 3 11/16″ Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the Pretty Peacock Stitched Rectangle Die.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Pretty Peacock decorated layer to the top of the Pumpkin Pie card base with equal border to the top and sides. I added the Plaid Tidings stitched rectangle to the bottom of the card base.
  • I added 3 Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • I added the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card base and adhered the plaid strip to the bottom.
  • I added a matching plaid strip to the envelope flap by applying Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the flap and then applying the DSP. I used my Paper Snips to trim the excess. This strip was a left over piece from another project and it was a little narrower than the flap so I used my paper trimmer to remove the excess flap and rounded the corners. Plenty of envelope adhesive left and successful use of a paper scrap.

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Autumn Card

I have another card that I made at the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting to share with you. The awesomely talented Mary Deatherage of StampsNLingers designed this one for our Celebration Tidings Bundle session. If you remember I didn’t receive the backordered Plaid Tidings Designer Paper in time (I got it yesterday!) so I substituted from last year’s Come To Gather DSP. So much fun! Check out Mary’s original card below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Merry Merlot Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Cajun Craze Cardstock: Two 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 1″ x 3″ and 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Designer Series Paper (Plaid Tidings Suggested): 4″ x 5 1/4′

The Creating

  • Emboss the Merry Merlot card front with the Subltes 3D Embossing Folder
  • Cut one 4” x 5 1/4” Cajun Craze panel and the 4” x 5 1/4” DSP panel with the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle die. Adhere them to the card front so that they are slightly off-set.
  • Apply a strip of Stampin’ Seal across the center front of the card and adhere a length of the Faux Linen Ribbon in a wide “z”.
  • Stamp the pumpkin image and the line image from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set on one of the 4” x 5-1/4” Crumb Cake card stock panels in Tuxedo Black ink. Line them up so they are centered one over the top of the other about 1” apart. Color the images leaves with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Color the Pumpkins with Pumpkin Pie Dark and line the ridges with Cajun Craze Light Stampin’ Blend. Add highlights with the Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker.
  • Cut around the stamped images with the 2nd smallest of the label dies from the Celebration Labels and adhere over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings in Tuxedo Black ink on the remaining Crumb Cake card stock and color the large pumpkin as before. Snip out the colored pumpkin and adhere it over the stamped pumpkins on the label die cut with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the 1” x 3” panel of Very Vanilla card stock. Cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Rectangle die that measures approximately 7/8” x 2-7/8” and then adhere it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
  • Cut three small sprig dies from the Celebrations Labels Dies from Merry Merlot Cardstock and adhere them under the sentiment label as shown.
  • Stamp the leaf image and the pumpkin image from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the remaining Very Vanilla panel and color as before. Adhere to the remaining Cajun Craze cardstock panel and then to the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the pumpkin image from Celebration Tidings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope Flap. Color as before.
Here is Mary’s beautiful card. She cut two sets of extra pumpkins, used Cinnamin Cider embossed with Textured Textile Embossing Folder, Blackberry Bliss and Plaid Tidings DSP. Her sprigs, Enamel Dot and ribbon are Bumble Bee. So Beautiful! Thank you, Mary!

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.

Wheelbarrow Full of Boo with Stampin’ Up! Tags Tags Tags for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team theme is “Halloween Fun.” I hope the tiny pumpkins on this card make you smile, too!

My card features the Tags, Tags, Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Trio of Tags Dies from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The wheelbarrow is from the Autumn Goodness Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. There are also 3 Rectangle Stitched Dies. This is the most used die set in my collection….a must have.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8″ (scored at 4 1/4″), 3rd largest die from Rectangle Stitched Dies, and 2″ x 1 1/2″ for the inside sentiment.
  • Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper: 6″ x 6″ for the largest die from Rectangle Stitched Dies and the envelope flap.
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3″ x 5″ for dies.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 6″ x 2″ for dies and a 5″ x 3 3/4″ panel.
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • On the Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the wheelbarrow, the wheel and the two bottom images of the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp with Tuxedo Black Ink. Tip: use a D Block to center the 2 tags and wrap the extra one around the side. It will stick and make it easy to ink and stamp just the ones you want.
  • Color the wheelbarrow and wheel with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. Color a 16″ Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
  • Cut out the inside sentiment (Happy Boo) with the Paper Trimmer or Paper Snips. You want to trim on the inside of the tag outline so you just get the sentiment.
  • Die cut the wheelbarrow, wheel and remaining sentiment. Tip:
    To avoid getting the tag hole, run the die half way through (you’ll feel the edge clear), turn the die around and run the other half through.
  • From the Paper Pumpkin Cardstock, die cut the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die and 14 pumpkins (7 runs, the die cuts 2 each time).

The Assembly

  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the wheel to the wheelbarrow. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. Also add them to the front sentiment tag (Sending a Halloween Hello).
  • Tie the ribbon in a bow around the bottom of the black rectangle stitched die.
  • Adhere the DSP to the card base. Top with the black rectangle stitched die. Add the wheelbarrow in the lower left corner. Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere 12 pumpkins, tucking the lowest level slightly under the wheelbarrow edge. Add the sentiment label.
  • Adhere the two remaining pumpkins to the inside sentiment. Adhere the remaining layers to the inside of the card base.
  • Apply glue to the envelope flap and apply the remaining DSP with the stitched edge on the bottom. Use scissors to fussy cut the excess DSP and envelope that shows.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello Thank You

My husband and I are blessed to have wonderful people in our lives. Our neighbors are no exception. We did the simple act of picking up mail for the ones across the street while they were away and they surprised me with a beautiful scarf and a coin purse that I’ll treasure. A Fall thank you card is in order! Enjoy…

THE CUTTING

  • Pretty Peacock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and a small scrap to punch the stem and leaf
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside; 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ for the front layer; and 2″ x 2 1/2″ for the punch.
  • Come To Gather DSP: 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ for the front layer (be careful when using directional pattern) and a 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Linen Thread: 15″
You could add an inside sentiment if you’d like. I wanted the writing space.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp the pumpkin stamp in Pretty Peacock ink on the small white square. Use the Apple Builder Punch to cut it out. Also punch a stem from a Pretty Peacock cardstock scrap. I used the Every Season Leaf Punch to punch a “pumpkin” leaf. (just didn’t feel like coloring and fussy cutting, but you could). I added a Mini Glue Dot on the front of the step and adhered it to the back of the punched pumpkin.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the pumpkin with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the Thank You from Abstract Impressions in Pretty Peacock Ink.
  • The Linen Thread was tied in a bow and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com if you have any questions. Supplies used are linked below. If you don’t have a demonstrator I would love the opportunity to be your creative coach. See my Customer Rewards page for full details.
