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! Textures & Frames Colorful Birthday Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Textures & Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set to make two fun, colorful birthday cards…one is simple stamping and the other is stepped up with a few more layers and embellishments. This stamp set is free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration (through September 2021, while supplies last, brochure linked below). It is so easy to use…I don’t know why I’ve waited so long! I hope you enjoy the card!

    Card 1 – Simply Stamped

    The Paper Cuts

    • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) and 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel)
    • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″

    The Creating

    The stripes are made by stamping the solid brushstroke twice, with the narrow end at the top and bottom of the panel and slightly overlapping the wide end in the center. They are stamped with Calypso Coral Ink, Pear Pizzazz Ink, Bumblebee Ink and Misty Moonlight Ink. This color combination is so pretty! I added the “Celebrate” sentiment from the Create With Friends Stamp Set and the ink splatter image from Textures & Frames with Tuxedo Black Ink. The greeting on the inside is from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set. Portions of the brushstroke were added to the bottom edge of the inside of the card and to the bottom edge of the envelope. One dot from the paint spatter image was added inside, next to the sentiment.

    Card 2 – Stepped Up

    The Paper Cuts

    • Calypso Coral Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
    • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel) and label die cut from Seasonal Labels Dies with the coordinating slits for the ends.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    The stripes and inside panel are the same as for Card 1. The “Celebrate” sentiment is stamped with VersaMark Ink onto the Seasonal Label die cut, sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (excess tapped off) and melted with the Heat Tool. Two 4″ pieces of Glittered Organdy Ribbon were slipped through the side slits die cut into the label and taped to the back of the panel before being adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. The label is supported with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three Matte Black Dots were added with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. The Calypso Coral card base give a little extra layer of color on the inside.

    Which one do you like best?

    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! Great Tidings Christmas Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Great Tidings Bundles from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalog for this card. The bundle includes the Great Tidings Cling Stamp Set + Wise Men Tidings Dies. The detail of these stamps begs for wet embossing! If you like to color, you can get quite detailed as the sample on page 15 of the Mini Catalog or you can keep it simple like here. I hope you enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
    • Gold Foil Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel)
    • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (front layer), 1 3/4″ x 3″ (die cutting) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)
    • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (sand) and a Bethlehem die cut
    • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 2 star die cuts

    The Creating

    I stamped the “Wise men still seek Him” sentiment in Night of Navy Ink in the top right corner of the Very Vanilla front layer. I used Versa Mark Ink to stamp two wise men in line on the right side and centered vertically, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping away excess) and melted the powder with the Heat Tool. I stamped the remaining wise man on Very Vanilla Cardstock and repeated the embossing process. I colored the wise men using Misty Moonlight Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends, Olive Green Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends, Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend, Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. I ran the separate king through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the coordinating die. I also passed the Crumb Cake Cardstock strip through with the “snow” die from Cabin Dies in the center to cut it in half.

    I used a Blending Brush to apply Night of Navy Ink around the edges of the stamped panel making it darker on the outside and lighter around the images. I also stamped the sentiment and gifts images on the inside panel and on the envelope front. I used a ruler and the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to draw a base for the gifts. I added the star on the envelope with Crushed Curry Ink.

    To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the cardstock panels on the card front and inside. I applied the back layer of the “sand” and the die cuts on the inside with liquid glue. I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the front star, the top layer of “sand” and the die cut wise man (tucked slightly between the sand layers). I lightly blended a little bit of Night of Navy Ink onto the sand to bring the “night” down. I also added a little Wink of Stella to the gifts in the wise men hands and on the envelope and inside panel.

    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! Peaceful Cabin Christmas Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Bundle from the July – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog along with the Peaceful Prints 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper (free with a $50 purchase) from the Aug – Sept Sale-a-bration Brochure. The paper print pairs perfectly with the snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder set in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you like those vintage cards with all the glitter on them, I think you will like this one. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ (front panel)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x1 7/8″ (front embossed panel) and 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ (stamping/die cutting)
    • Garden Green Cardstock: smallest label die cut from Seasonal Labels Dies
    • Peaceful Prints 12″x12″ DSP: 5 1/4″ x 2″ (front panel)

    The Creating

    I began by embossing the Basic White front panel with the snowy embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder set. I also embossed the envelope flap to coordinate. With Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive I adhered the embossed panel and the DSP panel to the Basic Black panel.

    I stamped the tree image from the Peaceful Cabin Stamp Set with Garden Green Ink onto Basic White Cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die in Cabin Dies. I attached it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also stamped the trees on the inside panel.

    I stamped the front sentiment with VersaMark Ink onto the Garden Green die cut, sprinkled on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping off the excess) and melted it with the Heat Tool. I applied a strip cut from the edge of my Stampin’ Dimensionals sheet to the bottom of the die and liquid glue to the top to adhere it underneath the trees.

    I added the inside sentiment with Tuxedo Black Ink. I glued the black panel to the card base. With Wink of Stella I highlighted the trees and the snow underneath, using the tree die as a guide to “draw” the snow on the inside. So pretty!

    Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Fall Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

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

    I used the Beauty of Friendship Bundle from the 2021 -2022 Annual Catalog (page 11) to make this Fall Thinking of You card.  When I think of Fall, I imagine red, yellow, orange and brown leaves like the ones on this printed sheet of Beauty of Friendship 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper. So pretty! I hope you enjoy the pops of metallic in the design and the tips included below.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 3 1/2″ x 1″ (land at base of tree)
    • Cajun Craze Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) and the thin label die from Beautiful Trees Dies
    • Early Expresso Cardstock: large tree die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside layer)
    • Beauty of Friendship DSP (Misty Forest Pattern): 3 3/4″ x 5″ (front layer) and 4″ x 3/4″ (inside strip)
    • Beauty of Friendship DSP (Fall Leaf Pattern): 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope) & the large open tree top die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
    • Brushed Metallic Cardstock (Bronze): large open tree top die cut

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink on the Cajun Craze label, sprinkling on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (shaking off the excess) and melting it with the Heat Tool. I stamped the “You Truly Inspire Me” sentiment on the Basic White inside panel with Cajun Craze Ink.

    Next, I ran the Crumb Cake strip through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the 3 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die along the bottom edge. Then I ran the piece through again to die cut the top edge with the bottom edge of the large open tree top die. I cut the Brushed Metallic die cut in half vertically with my Paper Trimmer (it doesn’t have to be perfect) and with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the halves (slightly askew to show on the outside) to the back of the leaves DSP die cut. We do it with labels, so why not bigger shaped dies? Love it!

    Now for the assembly…I adhered the cardstock and DSP panels with Multipurpose Liquid glue, trimming off the extra around the envelope flap. I applied Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Crumb Cake die cut and the tree (a thin slice cut from the edge works great for the trunk). The sentiment label has liquid adhesive where it touches the Crumb Cake die and a slice of dimensional sheet along the bottom edge to keep it level. I added three Bronze Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots (from the new July to Dec 2021 Mini Catalog) to embellish the card front.

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Repeat Pattern Thank You Card for TGIF Color Challenge

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. The bundle includes the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies. There is beautiful Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set of products, but for this project I branched out and used a repeat “wall paper” pattern for the background with dramatically different colors. I hope you enjoy the card.

    The colors were inspired by the TGIF Challenges: #TGIFC328 Color Challenge.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base).
    • Coastal Cabana Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5″ x 1-1/8″ (sentiment strip), 5″ x 5/8″ (inside strip) and the large leaf sprig die cut.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel) and 4″ x 2″ (stamping/die cutting).
    • Pattern Party 12″x12″ DSP: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel), 5″ x 1/2″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the rose image with Tuxedo Black Ink randomly on the Basic White front panel. I also stamped one on the front corner of the envelope and two on the Basic White 4″ x 2″, along with a small bud image. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink on the Coastal Cabana front strip, sprinked on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping off the excess) and melted it with the Heat Tool.

    I die cut the stamped floral images with the coordinating dies using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I used my Paper Snips to cut the leaves from the stem of the large die cut sprig to make placement easy. I added a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the bottom point of all but one (this one is adhered flat under the “thanks”).

    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panels and strips as shown, trimming the excess paper from the envelope flap with Paper Snips. I then dry fit the flowers and leaves on the card front for placement. I removed the dimensionals backings and popped on the leaves first. Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of the flowers where needed and liquid glue on top of the base of the leaves where needed to support the roses.

    I couldn’t help but add some Wink of Stella to the popped up flowers and the stamping on the envelope for a little extra sparkle. With the putty tip of the Take Your Pick Tool, I added three Coastal Cabana adhesive backed Artistry Bloom Sequins for a little more color.

    Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Suite Christmas Card

    I used the Stampin’ Up! Painted Christmas Suite of products from the newly released July – December 2021 Mini Catalog for this card. It includes the Christmas Season Bundle (Christmas Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Labels Dies) and Christmas to Remember Bundle (Christmas to Remember Cling Stamp Set + Christmas Pinecone Dies), Gold Holly Leaves, Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and the Painted Christmas 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper. That’s A LOT of beautiful! I hope you enjoy the card.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
    • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 2″ (die cut label – 2nd largest nested)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 4″ (stamping/die cutting) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)
    • Painted Christmas 12″x12″ DSP: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)

    The Creating

    I began by stamping the sentiment on the Evening Evergreen die cut label with VersaMark Ink, sprinkling on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melting it with the Heat Tool. On Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the two holly leaves image in Evening Evergreen Ink, Garden Green Ink, and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I also stamped a holly berry image in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I die cut the stamped images with the coordinating dies with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

    On the Basic White inside panel and the envelope front, I stamped the holly leaves and sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink and the berries in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

    To assemble, I placed a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the tips of the holly leaves and added them to the top of the label die cut. I added the berries with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals…they fit perfectly! I cut three 2″ pieces of the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Metallic Ribbon and attached them to the back of the label with a strip of Stampin’ Seal Adhesive (placed on the label).

    I used liquid glue to adhere the DSP panel to the card front and the inside layer and DSP strip to the inside. popped the label on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked three of the Gold Holly Leaves in with Mini Glue Dots. I attached the remaining DSP panel with liquid glue to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.
