A Touch of Fall

The card I am sharing today may have you wishing for Fall and cooler weather.  Showcased are the Leaf Embossing Folder and Leaf Labels.

Leaf Labels

Nothing could be simpler than using these Leaf Labels as a focal layer on a card.  These beauties come already cut, and even have a tag hole in place to use them as a tag.  The hole is at the top point ,where I have strategically placed an Amber Gem.  Speaking of the Amber Gems, they are included with the Leaf Labels!  It is a two for one pairing.  All I had to do was stamp the sentiment on the leaf and it was ready to go.

Designer Series Paper

This beautiful and bright piece of DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration paper named Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.  It is FREE with a $50.00 order.  By using just a strip, it goes a really long way in creating some beautiful cards for Fall.  And all of the colors are bright ones.  That is my choice for most card colors.  Plus the bright plays perfectly to the Kraft paper of the Leaf Label.

Background and Embossing

The background of this card was created from the DSP of course.  All of the colors were pulled from that little strip, as was the decision on the Embossing Folder.  Crushed Curry was used to show off the beautiful leaves of the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  They blow softly across the card.  Actually it is a large space folder so you can move your cardstock around a little to place the leaves in the best location.  To compliment all of the layers, I went with Parakeet Party as the card base.  The brightness offsets the Kraft leaf and ties in to the DSP colors.

Hello Harvest

My project today showcases one of the new Fall stamp sets.  It is the Hello Harvest Bundle and is perfect for anything Fall!

 

Stampin' Up!, Hello Harvest, Rings of Love, Very Best Trio Punch, Sahara Sand Ribbon, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp Set and Dies

This card has a few different things of interest. But since the star of the show is the stamp and die bundle, we will will start there.  This is the Hello Harvest Bundle.  It contains the Hello Harvest Stamp set and the Rustic Pumpkin Die set.  Both are great alone or together.  My favorite of them are the ones used on today’s card.  They are the pumpkin with the sunflowers on top.  It is as if we were using the pumpkin as a vase.

Both the pumpkin and the sunflowers were stamped using Early Espresso Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The Pumpkin didn’t really require any coloring.  And the extra single leaf is included in both the stamp set and the die set.  Adding the single leaf was to pull more of the Poppy Parade color into the layers.

DSP and Fold

The DSP of this card is a perfect match to the stamps.  Between the colors and the images you could not find a better pairing.  And the best part of this paper is that it is FREE!  Yes, it is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices.  The Rings of Love Designer Series Paper not only coordinates wit the Rings of Love stamp set in the Mini Catalog, but is also one of the SAB items.  With a $50.00 order you can choose this as a Free gift.

The fold I have used looks similar to a Book Fold, but opens fully.  The DSP piece is simply added behind the 1″ front flap.  It allows for you to see the reverse side of the DSP when the card is opened. And to get more pieces from a 12 X 12 piece of DSP it is cut 4 X 5 1/2.  That is only 1/2″ less than normal but gets you two additional pieces from a 12X12 sheet.  The addition of the ribbon covers the inside of the card where the DSP and card flap meet.  This allows for a “cleaner” finish.

Punch

Were you wondering what I used to create the pretty details on the Pumpkin background layer?  It is really pretty and quite different from any corner makers we have.  Best of all is that this came from a punch!  It is the new Very Best Trio Punch.  The punch was all that I used, but it comes as a Bundle with the Very Best Occasions Stamp set.  The set is only sentiments and has a variety.  We all love punches and great sentiments, or at least I do.  So this is a must have from the Mini Catalog in my opinion.

InKing Royalty October Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects center around Harvest & Hope, so prepare yourself for gratitude and love in Fall-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The card I have to share today contains Pumpkins and Gratitude for this Harvest Theme.   Both inspire memories of childhood, family time and fun

Paper and Colors

I have been using all of the deeper and brighter Fall colors lately.  So I wanted to go with a softer look today.  The Boldness of the Bumblebee cardstock pairs well with the softer green of Soft Succulent in the piece of Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper I picked .  For an even softer touch, I used Soft Sea Foam for the green of the vines.  To pair with that, the Pumpkins are stamped with Smoky Slate and then colored using Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends.  The piece needed another spot of brightness to match the Bumblebee.  So I colored the flower bloom from the vine with Daffodil Delight and added a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel.

Stamps

The stamps I used are all from the Pretty Pumpkins set.  Being able to make a card from just one set is something I love!  The gorgeous font from the Gather Together looks beautiful with the shine of the Bumblebee Ink.  I stamped the three pumpkin image twice.  Once on the main piece and another on a scrap of White cardstock.  They are all colored the same, but I fussy cut the end ones from the extra stamped piece.  For a bit of fun I added them to the corners of the focal layer.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Lynn Kolcun at Avery’s Owlery. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Welcome Fall Y’all

Today’s project is a Welcome Fall Y’all card using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set along with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  I need a stamp with Y’all!!

 

Stampin' Up!, Gorgeous Leaves, Beauty of the Earth, Banner Pick A Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

These beautiful leaves with the little dots around them are from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.  The little dots add a ton of definition to each leaf in my opinion.  It is just enough of an extra touch.  I also added with Sahara Sand, that is stamped off first, the splatter stamp for even more background flavor.  The two leaves are not all of the leaves in the stamp set.  I only had room for the two for this design.

Paper

The card base is from Thick Basic White cardstock.  I did not add an extra White layer as I sometimes do. The stamping is directly on the card base.  The gorgeous paper is a piece from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  I cut a piece that measures 4 X 5 1/4 and then cut it on the diagonal.  That gives me two cards.  One has the layout I am showing you and the other has the wider section of DSP at the top instead of the bottom.  That card ends up being a softer looking one.

Finishing Touches

I added a banner in Sahara Sand cardstock to bring out the Sahara Sand splatter a bit more.   I stamped the Welcome from the Garden Birdhouse stamp set in Misty Moonlight to add more of the Blue to the card.  And  we want to Welcome Fall Y’all!!!  For the final touch, I added one of the Champagne Rhinestones to the banner.

Fall Slim Card

I have been working on a Skinny card for a card swap.  It has been very difficult getting the layout I want.  There have been some good results and some not so good ones.  Today is one of the good results that I liked but decided not to use in the swap.  So I thought I would share it with you.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gorgeous Leaves, Pretty Pumpkins, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

There are two really awesome stamp sets used on this card.  The first is the Pretty Pumpkins stamps.  This trio of pumpkins is my favorite from that set.  And it comes as a Bundle, I just didn’t use the dies.  The second stamp set is the Gorgeous Leaves.  It is also a Bundle, and I did use two of the Dies.

I love how well these two stamp sets work together.  Fall leaves and pumpkins are like Peanut Butter and Jelly!  They just go together.  The sentiment is such a sweet one and is from the Pretty Pumpkin stamp set. I just love it.

Colors and Finishes

Normally I would say Paper instead of Color, but I did not use any Designer Series Paper on this card.  That is very unusual for me.  I did choose some of my favorites of the colors I think of for Fall.  They are Cinnamon Cider and Soft Succulent for the card base and layer.

The stamped leaves are more of the great Fall colors.  They are Merry Merlot, Cinnamon Cider with some speckles of Pale Papaya.

To finish the card I went to the Annual Catalog for some ribbon.  It is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.  The gingham is actually Just Jade instead of Soft Succulent, but the color matches very well.  The final touch was two die cut leaves from Merry Merlot cardstock.  These dies are so intricate (The name of the dies are Intricate Leaves!) that it really pops against the white cardstock.

Pumpkin Corner

Pumpkins are popping up everywhere now.  So I have a pumpkin card to share.  It is a second look at the Corner Tuck Card I shared a few weeks ago.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pretty Pumpkins, Pattern Party, Jackie Beers

 

You can click HERE to see the earlier version of this fun fold.

Stamps

I truly Love the stamps in the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set. The matching Dies are awesome as well, but I did not use them today.  I stamped the three pumpkins, which is one stamp, and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The pumpkins are colored using Both Pumpkin Pie , Light Cinnamon Cider, and Light Old Olive.  I stamped the pumpkins with Soft Suede Ink.

Everyone seems to have their own way of coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.  When I want some shading, like with these guys, I start with an all over using the Light Blend.  I then come back and add the Dark where needed.  I finish with the light again and only drag the dark colors into the lighter area.  By not going all over with the Light the second time, I get the really light in the center of the larger pumpkin.  However, if you have a method that works for you, then stick with it!

Paper

I used the Host Rewards Paper Pack of Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  This pack of paper is awesome!  The colors are great, as are the patterns.  Plus you get a lot of paper for a very inexpensive price.  The only downside is that you can only purchase it with Host Rewards.  Anyone interested in a Party???

Measurements and Folds

  • The base card of Pumpkin PIe is cut 4 1/4 X 8 and scored at the 2 1/2 mark, fold and burnish
  • The left side strip layer of Old Olive is 1 X 4
  • The left side strip of DSP is 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • The focal layer is Old Olive cut 3 X 3
  • The stamped White is cut 2 7/8 X 2 7/8
  • The upper right corner that is the Tuck, is a piece of Pumpkin Pie and a DSP piece both cut to 2 7/8 X 2 7/8. they are each placed at a diagonal on the Paper Trimmer and cut in half to form triangles.  Then glue the two together for thickness. you only use half, so save one for the next card.
  • The inside White, that you do not see, is cut 2 3/4 X 2 3/4

Assembly:

  • Place Stampin’ Dimensionals in each of the corners of the triangle double thick piece and place in the upper right corner.
  • Adhere the DSP and Old Olive strips together and place on the left side of the flap. Align the left edge, top and bottom.
  • Layer the Old Olive and Focal Layer together.  Place it, centered, up against the strip on the left .
  • Add the inside White for the sentiment, place it further left than normal so it doesn’t show when the card is closed.
  • Close the card by tucking the focal layer underneath the raised upper corner

 

I hope you enjoy this card.  Please let me know if you have any questions!
