Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos
The Holiday Catalog is filled with brand-new products for fall crafting projects. I selected the Harvest Hellos stamp set because I really like the coordinating punch (Apple Builder Punch) that can be used either for an apple or a pumpkin, making it a versatile choice.
This card starts with an Early Espresso base, followed by a layer of Old Olive, and topped with a piece of Terracotta Tile Designer Series Paper from the 6 x 6 In Color paper stack. I stamped the pumpkin with Black Memento Ink and punched it out. I also stamped the leave and stem with black ink and punched those out, too. The cute little saying from the set is stamped in Old Olive, and it’s all wrapped together with a piece of Linen Thread.
Look for a list of all of the products I used at the very end of this post. Please contact me if you have any questions. I’d love to help.
Congratulations to Gail Tucker for winning the August card kit.
Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Fall Blog Hop. Visit all of the blogs on the hop to gain inspiration and ideas for your fall crafting. Look for card samples using both Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and Holiday Catalog (available for ordering September 4).
My card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Colorful Seasons stamp set and its coordinating Seasonal Layers Dies. It also uses a really fun technique called the Baby Wipe Technique.
Stampin’ Up! Colorful Season and Seasonal Layers Dies
The Baby Wipe Technique is super fun and allows you to create a range of awesome ink combinations, especially for the fall season. I usually grab a couple of baby wipes and stack them on top of each other. I then squirt drops of Stampin’ Up!’s ink refills onto the wipe, making sure the colors overlap. For this card, I used: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green. You then press your stamp onto the baby wipe and then onto your paper (I used Shimmery White). You can move your stamp around to different sections of the wipe to attain different color variations. I then used the coordinating dies to crop the leaves from the paper.
Other fun elements of this card include: Background paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil, the Stitched Nested Labels, and the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set.
