Don't you just love the fall?  The cool air, pretty colors, sweaters!!  I love the fall.  In celebration of the cool air and warm colors, I made the pretty fall card.  



Supplies used:  All items used are current Stampin' Up! products.
  • Pretty Pumpkin stamp set(156472)
  • Detailed Pumpkins(156477) and Scalloped Contours Dies(155560)
  • Basic White(159276), Cajun Craze(119684) cardstock
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper
  • Bumblebee(153116), Old Olive(147090), Cajun Craze(147085) and Pumpkin Pie(147086) ink
  • Gold Shimmer Ribbon(156470)
  • Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels(150457)
  • Blending Brushes(133773)

Here’s How I made it!

Cut:

  • Basic White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored @ 4 1/4
  • Pattern Party DSP – 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
  • Basic White – 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 (for stamping)
  • Cajun Craze- 4 1/2 x 3 (die cutting)

Stamp using Pretty Pumpkins:

  • On the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic White, stamp the following:
  • in Old Olive stamp the pumpkin with the leaves
  • in Pumpkin Pie stamp the same pumpkin 

Die cut using the Detailed Pumpkins Dies:

  • Using the stamped pumpkins in the Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie
Die Cut using the Scalloped Contours Dies:
  •  Using the 4 1/2 x 3 Cajun Craze paper, die cut the Scalloped Contours Die that measures 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 
Blending brush coloring:
  • Using Old Olive starting at a corner, in a swirl motion blend color on the Pattern Party DSP about 2 inches, repeat using Cajun Craze and Bumblebee.  The colors can be in any direction you want.  I blended diagonally.  

Assemble the Card:

  • Adhere the Pattern Party DSP – 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 to your Basic White card base
  • Adhere a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon long ways onto your Cajun Craze die cut
  • Adhere the Pumpkin Pie Pumpkin die cut on your ribbon, then using dimensionals adhere the Old Olive pumpkin over the other for a layered look.
  • Place dimensionals on the back of the Cajun Craze cardstock, then place it on top of the DSP.
  • Using the same Gold Shimmer Ribbon, make a bow and place on the side of your Old Olive Pumpkin.
  • Finishing touch is to use 3 Adhesive-Backed Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly on your card for some added pizzazz.
