Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Fall Friendship Card

I have been having a great time playing with the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set + Detailed Pumpkins Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 48). It is so pretty and easy to create great projects with. I hope you enjoy tonight’s card!

The Paper Cuts

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base), two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels and a 3-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • Cajun Craze Cardstock: filigree pumpkin die cut from Detailed Pumpkin Dies
  • 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum (Pale Papaya): 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Cork 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper: 3-3/4″ x 1 3/4″ die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • Gold Foil 12″ x 12″ Sheets: one of each pumpkin leaf die cuts from Detailed Pumpkin Dies and a leaf die cut from Intricate Leaves Dies.

The Creating

I began by running one of the Very Vanilla panels through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder with the No. 1 and No. 4 plate sandwich. I repeated with the flap of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.

Next, I stamped the pumpkin with the leaf print on the Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum. I inked the stamp with Bumblebee Ink and then used Sponge Daubers (one for each color) to apply ink on the leaves inside with Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Early Expresso Inks. I dried the ink with the Heat Tool on the low setting. I repeated the pumpkin on the lower right corner of the Very Vanilla inside panel and added the “so thankful for you” sentiment with Pumpkin Pie Ink.

I stamped the “If friends were pumpkins I’d pick you” sentiment with VersaMark Ink on the Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangle die cut, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted it with the Heat Tool on the high setting.

To assemble I added the embossed panel to the card front and the inside panel to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I applied a 5″ piece of the 3/8″ Fine Art Ribbon across the center of the Cork die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I topped it with the Very Vanilla sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I trimmed the ends of the ribbon with my Paper Snips. Next, I applied the gold leaf die cut, then the filigree pumpkin, the stamped shimmer pumpkin, and then the gold pumpkin leaves. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to pick up and apply three Gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots to embellish.

    Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Card

    I used the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle, the Beauty of Friendship 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum for this friendship card. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Beauty of Friendship 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel)
    • In Color Shimmer Vellum: 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ (largest Seaside Shells die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ (Painted Labels die cut), 3 3/4″ x 5″ 5 (shells) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting the large die from Seaside Seashells Dies in Soft Succulent 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum. So pretty! Then I ran it back through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine inside the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder for the pretty details.

    Next I stamped the coordinating seashells on the Basic White panel. Check out the instructions here for lining it up all at once on the Stamparatus so that they line up with the embossing folder and the large die. This time I just stamped them on scraps and lined them up with the coordinating shell on the die…a piece of Washi tape can be helpful. I stamped the shells with Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Soft Succulent Inks. Note: You will only need 4 as the sentiment label covers one. I embossed them and then die cut them. Then I trimmed any connectors (paper pieces bridging them together) with my Paper Snips and added Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of the 3 smaller shells.

    I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy Ink on Basic White Cardstock and die cut it with the Painted Labels Die. I trimmed the right side with my Paper Trimmer so it would fit flush against the right side of the card. I also stamped the inside sentiment and added the shells and dots at the bottom with Soft Succulent and Night of Navy Inks. I repeated this designer on the envelope.

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the front (Beauty of Friendship DSP and Night of Navy panels) and inside panel. For the vellum, I applied liquid adhesive behind the shells and small dots of liquid glue at the junctions of the sea fronds. I wanted the edges to be free for a little lift and texture. I popped up the sentiment label with Stampin’ Dimensionals and used liquid glue on the largest shell.

    To embellish, I added Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    I hope you enjoy the card. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Thank You Card

    I used the Encircled in Friendship Bundle and the Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper to make this Thank You card. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pale Papaya Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel), 1/2″ x 4″ (inside strip) and 2 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ (envelope flap)
    • In Color Shimmer Vellum: 4″ x 4″ (largest, outline die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside) and the 3″ x 3 1/8″ (for die cut)
    For this card, the two dies used from Encircled in Beauty Dies are the 1st one (cut in Pale Papaya In Color Shimmer Vellum) and the first one on the second row (cut in Basic White Cardstock).

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting as indicated above with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship Cling Stamp Set with Soft Succulent Ink. I also added the sentiment on the inside panel (it’s slightly off center to the left to accommodate the DSP strip).

    To assemble the card, I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the front and inside panels. For the vellum, I placed the sentiment die cut on top and flipped it over so that I had a guide to place the liquid adhesive. I wanted the edges to be free for a little lift and texture. Then, I popped up the sentiment stamped die cut up with Stampin’ Dimensionals which hid any adhesive that may have shown through the vellum. The DSP panel was adhered to the envelope flap and trimmed with Paper Snips for a coordinated set.

    To embellish, I added Pale Papaya 2021-23 In Color Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.

    If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Shimmer Vellum Birthday Card with Art Gallery Bundle

    Sunday, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew had our Quarterly Meeting and a few of our talented Demonstrators presented cards for us to make. This card is inspired by the card Karen Ksenzakovic presented. It features the gorgeous 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum embossed with the lovely Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. The flattened photographs don’t do the Shimmer Vellum the justice it deserves, but the 2nd photo shows it best. It’s oh so pretty! The Art Gallery Bundled savings will end on June 30th. If you don’t have it, it’s a great one to get because it includes two different flower images, two-step stamping and lots of sentiments that we use all the time. I hope you enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Pale Papaya Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum: 3 3/4″ x 5″
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ for stamping/die cutting and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the larger floral image from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in 2nd Generation (stamped off once) Pale Papaya Ink on the right side of the 5 1/4″ x 4″ Basic White panel (see die cutting layout below for general placement). I then added the 2nd step floral image in Pale Papaya Ink (without stamping off). I stamp the stem and leaf image with Soft Succulent Ink in the lower right corner. These colors are so pretty together!

    Next, I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies from Floral Gallery Dies and the 2nd largest Stitched So Sweetly Die. I passed the Pale Papaya Shimmer Vellum through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.

    I used a Blending Brush dipped in Soft Succulent Ink to add a little color in the center of the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and added the Happy Birthday stamp to the bottom edge.

    To assemble the card, I placed Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the back of the shimmer vellum where the die cut would cover it and adhered it to the Soft Succulent panel. I adhered both to the card base. I adhered the stem/leaves with liquid glue and popped the floral image up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also popped the scallop die cut up on the the shimmer vellum to (which covered the liquid glue underneath the vellum).

    To embellish, I added Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color Jewels using the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. I added a Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon bow with a Mini Glue Dot.

    For the inside panel and envelope I duplicated the floral stamping and added the Best Wishes sentiment.

    If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Notecard

    I used the Artistically Inked Bundle along with the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper for this Notecard. This is a super fun set of products and while I didn’t use them all on this particular card, the Suite is well worth the splurge! Enjoy.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 11 x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: two 5 1/2″ x 4″ panels (I cut a 5 1/2″ strip from the short edge of the piece with the pink and orange ink dabbles and then cut the two 4″ panels).
    • 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum: 5 1/4″ x 2″ (leaf die cut)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 3″ (for stamping/die cutting)

    The Creating

    I stamped the floral image with Pale Papaya Ink twice on the Basic White Cardstock and ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the coordinating die from Artistic Dies. I also die cut the leaves using the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum. So pretty! I snipped the two lower leaves off and separated them with my Paper Snips so that I could tuck them in where wanted.

    With Polished Pink Ink, I stamped the hello sentiment in the lower left corner of the panel (the one with the most ink dabbles) and the “dots” to the inside of the flowers. I applied the panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added the leaf die cut with liquid glue as well, however, the next time I die cut it I will apply a piece of Adhesive Sheet first because the shimmer vellum wanted to twist/lift slightly…pressure from a Clear Block on top got the job done! I adhered the flower on the top left corner and popped the second one up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. With Mini Glue Dots, I tucked the two separated leaves underneath. With the Take Your Pick putty end, I applied Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little sparkle to compliment the shimmer paper.

    On the inside panel I stamped the floral image in Polished Pink Ink and a leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I also added a couple of pink dots and just a hint of a Pale Papaya floral image to balance out the design width and colors before adding the panel with liquid adhesive. I duplicated the floral image and leaves on the Basic White Medium Envelope for a matching set.

    If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!
