Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Autumn Card Sneak Peek

I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle from the upcoming August 3, 2021-Jan 3, 2022 Mini Catalog to make this Fall card. The bundle includes the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. There is also a sneak peek of the sparkly Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon. So pretty! And, the plaid Peaceful Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in the background is free from Stampin’ Up! as of Aug 3 with a $50 order as part of Sale-a-bration!

The design for this card was inspired by the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge SSC262 GETTING SKETCHY.

The Paper Cuts

  • Early Expresso Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and the leafy wreath die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Bumblebee Cardstock: two leaves die cuts from Seasonal Swirls Dies in each color (the die cuts 2 leaves at a time so you will have 4 leaves in each color).
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: two leaves die cuts and 3 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel).
  • Sahara Sand Cardstock: 2″ x 1″ (stamping & cutting three pinecones)
  • Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (wood pattern): largest Stitched Rectangle die cut.
  • Peaceful Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (plaid pattern): two 1 3/4″ x 3 3/8″ Stitched Rectangle die cuts (front panels) and a 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock: label from Tasteful Label Dies and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

The Creating

I stamped three pinecones from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Early Expresso Ink onto the Sahara Sand Cardstock (which coordinates with the Peaceful Prints DSP) and die cut them with the coordinating die. I stamped the “Grateful” sentiment on the Tasteful Labels die cut in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I also stamped the inside sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler Ink.

I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers and die cuts to the card base. For the greeting on the card front, I applied Tear & Tape Adhesive to the back of 2 1/2″ of Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon and to the back of the stamped label. I added three Gold Metallic Pearls to embellish the card front. I adhered a strip of the DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Halloween Card Sneak Peek

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle from the upcoming August-December 2021 Mini Catalog to make this fun Halloween card. The bundle includes the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. There are two other wreaths (stars & holly), sentiments and decorations for multiple holidays. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), six leaf die cuts (die cuts 2 at a time), and a broom die cut.
    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels and four pumpkin die cuts
    • Soft Suede Cardstock: wreath die cut, a broom die cut and 2 leaf die cuts
    • Basic White Cardstock: two 3 3/4″ x 5″ panels

    The Creating

    I did a dry fit of the dies on one of the white panels to decided the placement for the sentiment which I stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink. I ran the stamped panel through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the Textured Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut pieces to the panel. To make the broom I snipped the Crushed Curry bristles off and adhered them to the Soft Suede broom. Super cute!

    For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink and added the remaining pumpkin die cut. I adhered the card layers as shown and added 5 Crushed Curry Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool.
