Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie and Copper Vintage Leaves

I used the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves and One Big Meaning stamp sets to create a fall thank you card.  I received a similar card made by Lisa Martz from a swap that I participated in.  You can see Lisa’s card here.  Thanks for the color inspiration Lisa!


My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #259.


The colors for my card were inspired by Just Us Girls #366.


And the fall theme for my card was inspired by The Card Concept #60.  I would say that my card falls into the clean and layered category.


I started by stamping the sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White cards stock.  I sprinkled the image with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.


I adhered a panel from the Halloween Night Specialty DSP pack to the Whisper White panel with SNAIL and then I adhered a thin strip form the Copper Foil Sheets over the DSP panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL and then to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I cut a leaf from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper with the Leaflets Framelits Die and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Vintage Leaves photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Copper Foil Sheets, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I let the image cool completely and then cut it out with the matching Leaflets Framelits Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I pulled a strand of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine through a Classy Designer Button, tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish the card front.


I stamped the image from the Vintage Leaves stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin Season of Gratitude

Sorry that my post is a little late today and for sending out the wrong one a few minutes ago!!  I had it in my head that the two blog hops that I was joining in were today.  But they’re both actually tomorrow.  Yikes!  So I took down my blog post with the blog hop in it and I’ll repost it tomorrow when it’s actually supposed to go live.  Apparently I need a little more caffeine this morning.  ;)

Today I’m sharing the October Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up!.  It’s another fantastic fall kit, this one is full of shaker cards.  I love them!
