Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Fall Foliage Miss You Card

I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set + Beautiful Trees Dies) from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to make this Fall foliage card. I love trees in any season and I love the colors of Fall. As a Southerner my Falls were brief…going quickly to dry brown, but I moved to the Northeast in my 20s and Oh!My! a whole month of beautiful color! I even tried to send preserved Fall leaves home to my parents to share the beauty. I hope you enjoy the card I’m sharing with you tonight!

The Paper Cuts

  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 4-1/4″x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and a tree trunk die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies.
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4-7/8″ (front layer) and 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies diecut, Tasteful Labels die cut, and 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside panel)

The Creating

I began by stamping the triple leaf image from the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Bumblebee Inks onto the Stitched Rectangle die cut to fill in the tree top and the ground cover. I occasionally placed the tree die cut on the rectangle to gage placement. I repeated the leaves on the bottom edge of the envelope and inside panel. I then used a Blending Brush to apply Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie Ink to these areas.

In Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the tree base from Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set (on the Stitched Rectangle) and the sentiment from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set (onto the Tasteful Labels die cut).

To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the panels and leaves. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Halloween Fun Fold for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

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

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog (page 58) to make this “Halloween Fun” card.  It is a fun fold that I saw presented by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 8″ x 5-1/4″, scored at 4″ and 6″ (inside panel), the 4th largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the tag die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
    • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the pumpkin die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Basic Black Cardstock: bat die cut and broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: pumpkin leaves die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: broom die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies
    • Pattern Party Host DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (front panel), 1-3/4″ x 5″ and 6″ x 2-1/4″ (env)

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP panel to the front of the Basic White Thick card base. I centered the 4th largest die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (I saved the cut out for another card).

    Next, I stamped the “Wishing You A Trick-Or-Treating, Candy-Eating, Frightful-Delightful Time!” sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink centered in the left (and largest) section of the Basic White inside panel. I added the bats from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped “Happy Halloween” from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set on the tag die cut in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

    I adhered the 1-3/4″ x 5″ DSP to the middle section of the panel. I folded the inside panel so that it makes a valley at the 4″ score and a peak at 6″ score (this will “hide” the DSP panel). I adhered the largest panel (with the sentiment) to the inside of the card base, leaving an even margin around the edges. I closed the card front and applied adhesive to the folded edge that is visible through the die cut opening and inserted the Pumpkin Pie Stitched So Sweetly die cut into the opening to glue it into place (being sure to line up the scalloped edges). Super easy!

    I stamped the bats on the top left corner of the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and on the front of the envelope. I snipped the broom handle from the Bumblebee broom die cut and adhered the “straw” portion over the Basic Black broom die cut. I dry fit the Seasonal Swirls die cuts onto the Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die cut and then adhered them in place. The bat, the top pumpkin leaf and the pumpkin are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The others are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

    I adhered the decorated Basic White die cut onto the Pumpkin Pie die cut (in the opening) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the sentiment tag with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals being sure to center it so that it did not impeded the opening of the card front. Lastly, I adhered the remaining DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Fall Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog for this card. The color and stamping inspiration came from the Beauty of the Earth 12×12 Designer Series Paper from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog.

    The card design was inspired by the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge: SSC264 FRONT AND CENTER.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ (front panel) and the 3rd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 3″ (stamping) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: 3″ x 3/4″ (sentiment)
    • Beauty of the Earth 12×12 DSP: 5 3/8″ x 2″ in each pattern, 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (env)

    The Creating

    I began by adhering the two DSP panels to the Mossy Meadow front panel, lining them up with the top and bottom edges. I wrapped the Fine Art Ribbon around the center to the back of the panel and secured the ends with tape. I adhered the panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

    I randomly stamped images from the Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set around the Basic White panel. The green leafy image is stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink. The sprig is stamped in Misty Moonlight Ink. For the oak leaf image I inked in Pumpkin Pie and then used a Sponge Dauber to apply Cajun Craze Ink up the stem and the leaf edges. I ran the stamped panel through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the Mossy Meadow Stitched Rectangle Die Cut and popped them up on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    With VersaMark Ink, I stamped the sentiment on Misty Moonlight Cardstock, sprinkled on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping off the excess) and melted it with the Heat Tool. I ran this through the die cut machine with the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered this to the stamped panel with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I embellished with two pieces of the Fine Art Ribbon (I didn’t fold because there seems to be a “right” and “wrong” side), tucked in with Mini Glue Dots and three Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

    I stamped leaves on the corner of the envelop and on the inside panel with the sentiment. I applied strips of the DSP to both, trimming the excess from the envelope flap.

    Thank you for stopping by. 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! 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.
