I used the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos stamp set bundle and the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set to create a fall birthday card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a color challenge this week and here is what I created for it.
Here are the colors that we’re using this week:
I started by adhering panels from the Come To Gather DSP to the front of an Early Espresso card base with SNAIL. I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a small bow.
I stamped the pumpkin, leaf and stem images from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in VersaMark ink on Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Peacock card stocks, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them. I punched the pumpkin and stem images out with the Apple Builder Punch and hand cut the leaves. I adhered the pumpkin pieces together with Glue Dots and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Come To Gather DSP, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I added three of the gold Designer Elements to the card front to finish it.
I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Day stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then added a strip of the Come To Gather DSP to finish the inside of the card.
