So Very Grateful

 

Instead of a single card for today, I am sharing several that fall under the Grateful and Thanksgiving theme.  I am so very grateful for all the joy and people that Stampin’ Up! has brought into my life!

Gratitude Well Defined

Expressing our Gratitude to someone is always a good thing to do.  This time of year makes me especially aware of that.  Today’s project is a perfect way to show someone they are appreciated.

Stamp Set

This stamp set is aptly named Well Defined.  There are various holidays and similar sentiments that are one word and their definition.  These definitions make a wonderful clean and sweet card that is made quickly.  The Gratitude was chosen as a nod to Thanksgiving.  It is stamped using Cinnamon Cider Ink.  As I have stated before, this ink looks a bit metallic when paired with embossed or metallic paper.

Paper

To pair the Cinnamon Cider with this beautiful paper was a given.  This is the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series paper.  It has been difficult for Stampin’ Up! to keep in stock for that very reason.  But I looked and it is in stock now!  This paper is paired with Cinnamon Cider cardstock and a layer of Very Vanilla.

There was a piece of the DSP previously cut. So I  just needed a tiny adjustment.  That piece I cut off was only 1/4″.  Of course I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away.  As I was looking for a way to finish the card, I saw that little strip.  A bow is born!  All it took was a few folds, snips, and several glue dots.  This little bow should be called a glue dot bow!   I love the little different look to the card.

Give Thanks 3/4 Fold

One of my favorite cards to make are Thank You type cards.  Thanksgiving allows me an entire month of sharing my gratitude.  Today’s card is one I cased from fellow demonstrator Patty Bennett.  It requires 3/4 of a full sheet of cardstock, and is so worth it!!

Stampin' Up!, Pretty Pumpkins, Harvest Meadows, Scallop Contours Dies, Jackie Beers

Patty Bennett has a detailed video on how to make this card.  So I am not going to attempt to explain the process.  I will say that it is pretty easy to do.  There are just quite a few layers.

Front Section

Above is the front of my version.  Next is the second layer.

 

 

Second Layer

Now you see the second section.  I believe you can see how the “window” on the front opens away and leaves the layers and stamped images on this second section.

 

 

Third Section

This is the fully opened card.  The front flap is open to the left, and the blue second section is on the opposite side of the lower section where you would sign the card.  As you have seen, there are three sections, but four decorated panels.  I think of it as another version of one of the little accordion mini scrapbooks.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this Fun Fold.  As I said, Patty has a video detailing how to make this card.  My Supply List is at the bottom of the post.  If I can assist you please do not hesitate to reach out.  And if you do not currently have a demonstrator, I would love to invite you in to my stamping family.

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!

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.

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.

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!
