My Favorite Season for the Pals’ Blog Hop

Pals' Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Seasons’ Greetings. This month’s design team members showcase projects inspired by their favorite seasonal time of the year. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Hello Harvest meets Ringed with Nature for the Pals Blog Hop

Can you tell what my favorite season is? Yep, you guessed it, it is fall!! I just love the changing of the leaves and the cooler, crisp air. Well, of course, there is always pumpkin spice lattes as well.

This card actually combines two stamp sets from the Jul-Dec 2022 mini catalog. The sets are Hello Harvest on page 50 and Ringed With Nature on page 62.

Hello Harvest & Ringed With Nature Bundles

I can’t forget about the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack, it’s there as well.

Now, on to the card.

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of Soft Suede cardstock, score and fold at 4 ¼” to form your card base.
  • Layer and adhere a 3 7/8” x 5 1/8” piece of Rustic Harvest designer series paper (DSP) to a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Pale Papaya cardstock and attach to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (MLG).

  • Adhere a Maple leaf, with a Textural Element on top, to the card using MLG.

  • Ink up your Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder with Soft Sahara ink. Place the Tree Rings dies on top of the side you just put ink on and place a 4 ½” x 6” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock on top. (hint- the side of the embossing folder with the Stampin’ Up! logo is the side you put the ink on. It’s also the same side where you will place your die, with the cut edge facing up.)
  • Run your sandwiched embossing folder through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.
  • Ink up the edges of the two middle-large tree rings with Soft Suede ink using a Sponge Dauber.
  • Adhere the two tree rings together, overlapping slightly, and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Time to stamp

  • Stamp eight leaves on a piece of Basic White cardstock using the following inks; Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red. (hint- the leaves are multi-colored. To get that look, ink up your stamp, then with a different color of ink, lightly ink up the edges with a Sponge Dauber.)
  • Stamp the pumpkin on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Soft Suede ink and color with your Pale Papaya, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.
  • Color a small piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede ink using Sponge Daubers. (this will be for your acorn)
  • Using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine again, crop the leaves and pumpkin with the Rustic Pumpkin dies and a piece of Soft Suede cardstock and the Crumb Cake cardstock that you colored with the acorn dies from the Tree Rings dies.

  • Layer and adhere the leaves to the card using MLG.
  • Adhere the acorn to the pumpkin using MLG and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (hint- place a few Stampin’ Dimensionals near the bottom of the pumpkin and use MLG on the top of the pumpkin. This will help level it since the tree rings are already elevated.)
  • Stamp your sentiment on a 1” x 1 ¾” piece of Pale Papaya cardstock using Soft Suede ink.
  • Punch the end of the sentiment with the Banners Pick a Punch and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Attach three Amber Gems as shown.
