Today’s card is a fun and slightly spooky fall card that is so much fun to make! One sweet little pumpkin on a moonlit night…I think there might be story there somewhere 🙂
The background is Basic Black card stock with circles formed with Sponge Daubers and Craft Whisper White ink. With this technique you can create a polka dot background with any colors you like!
The pumpkin is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink on Petal Pink card stock using the Harvest Hellos stamp set and the Apple Builder Punch. The bow is tied in Black and White Baker’s Twine. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
There are lots of fabulous sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets so it’s a bit hard to choose. But one of my current favorites is the word “Blessed” from the To a Wild Rose Stamp Set. You can use it on almost any card, and it just conveys so much. It’s especially great to use during the fall, as it takes on the meaning of thankful!
For today’s card I’ve used a base of Petal Pink card stock topped with a panel of the same color card stock which has been embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Some pretty copper ribbon has been tied in a bow on one side. This is topped with a piece of Whisper White card stock cut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, and then a piece of Cajun Craze card stock cut with a smaller Stitched So Sweetly die. The Cajun Craze piece has been dotted with white dots by using a Sponge Dauber and Whisper White Ink.
Two pumpkins were cut from a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using the Autumn Essentials Dies. The stems were colored with the Bronze Stampin’ Blend. Three stalks of wheat were cut from Soft Sea Foam card stock also using the Autumn Essentials Die.
The sentiment “Blessed” was stamped with Versamark Ink on Basic Black card stock and then dusted with White Embossing Powder and heated with a Heat Tool. To finish off, a few Champagne Rhinestones were sprinkled about.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

A pink pumpkin tower ~ of course! It’s time to start having fun with pumpkins! Today’s card features three pumpkins, each colored differently, and placed one on top of the other.
The Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and the coordinating Apple Builder Punch are just what you need to create these fun pumpkins. They are stamped in Magenta Madness ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Then each pumpkin is colored with a different Watercolor Pencil (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Flirty Flamingo). Add some water with a Water Painter and punch with the coordinating punch.
Under the pumpkins are some Garden Green leaves cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. And to add some coordinating color, a piece of Shimmery White paper was watercolored with Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin ink, and then cut with a die from the Sunflower Dies.
The sentiment on this card is one of my favorites…”Hey There, Pumpkin.” It’s a great fall sentiment for anyone, and it brings a smile. That’s what we need these days, more smiles!
Hello there friend! How are you today? I hope you’re doing well and staying safe…and making cards!!! 🙂 Today’s cards feature the new Autumn Greetings Bundle. It’s my favorite “fall” bundle in the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog and I want to show you why!
Ok, so wheat. Have you ever seen such nice die-cut stalks of wheat? I don’t know much about wheat, but I think these are some great looking stalks!
The card below also has a die-cut pumpkin that I really like because it’s just the outline of the pumpkin. You can do a lot with this little guy. And do you see the black border at the bottom of the card? That’s another neat die from the set.
For both of these cards I’ve used the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. Here I chose patterns in black because black looks so nice with the Bumblebee card stock.
This sentiments in this stamp set use modern fonts. I think that makes the cards look up to date and fun.
The card with the coordinating envelope shown below uses the new Envelope Dies. These dies cut a scalloped edge on envelopes, cut scalloped-edge envelope liners, and much more!
Have you seen my YouTube video walk through the new catalog? Here it is below…enjoy!
Today’s card is so much FUN!! I’ve really been enjoying playing with the Harvest Hellos Bundle. Look at these adorable pumpkins ~ you just stamp on different colors of card stock and punch them out!
The stamp set has THE CUTEST stamps! Look at the leaves and that little curlicue on the envelope above! Isn’t it adorable! Both the stamp set and the punch come together as a Bundle and you save 10% on the Bundle! How great is that?
Behind the pumpkins (lifted up on Stampin’ Dimensionals) I’ve tucked some Leaf Ribbon. It connects the pumpkins as if they were in a pumpkin patch! And behind that is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock that has been stenciled with one of the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. Have you seen the Masks?
This card uses the mask in the top left above. I laid it over the Whisper White piece and sponged it with the new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad and a Sponge Dauber. Not sure if you can see in the photo that the trees are metallic, but in person they are very pretty!
And finally, the sentiment was stamped in Versamark Ink on Basic Black card stock, covered with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heated with the Heat Gun. Then the words were cut out with Paper Snips and placed on the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Yippee! Candy corn is in the stores! Truthfully, I don’t like to eat candy corn that much…one or two pieces is enough for me. But, I LOVE to use candy corn for decorating. I know that’s bad. But it’s so bright and fun and it just speaks fall. That’s why I had to make a card with candy corn on it!
To make candy corn out of card stock, punch or cut out with the Stampin’ Up! Layering Circle Dies, three circles from about 1″ to 3″ in diameter. Cut the smallest circle out of Whisper White card stock, the medium-sized circle out of Daffodil Delight card stock, and the largest circle out of Pumpkin Pie card stock. Glue them together with Multipurpose Glue with the largest circle on the bottom. Let dry for a few minutes and then begin cutting the circle like a pie – into about 8 triangle pieces. Using your Paper Snips, round the three corners of each triangle and, voila – candy corn!
The Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder makes a wonderful background for the candy corn. The sentiment here is a sneak peek of a new stamp set called Tiny Keepsakes and it’s just the right thing for this card! Add a bow made of burlap ribbon on the top candy corn. To create the bow, pull apart the threads of the burlap by carefully cutting off the top thread, then just pulling off the successive threads. Here I used four threads together and tied a bow. Attach it to the candy corn with a Mini Glue Dot.
