Pick a Pumpkin Bundle Cards and Stampin’ Blends

Pick a Pumpkin Bundle

For many years, Thanksgiving has been a favorite holiday.  Though we should have grateful hearts every day, I love taking a special day to take the time to express that gratitude while surrounded by the ones we love.  Oh, yes…and to eat the food for which we are so grateful!  Yummy!

I love, love decorating for Thanksgiving, too, using lots of pumpkins–real ones on the front steps (hoping the bear doesn’t get them!), pumpkin shaped candles, pumpkin placemats.  All of it!  So, naturally, I immediately fell in love with our Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies Bundle in our Holiday Catalog.  Have you seen it yet?  Here are a couple of cards I made using the stamps and dies.

The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is used for the background, the rectangle accent and the “fussy cut” pumpkins.  The large pumpkin and leaf dies are from the Pick a Pumpkin Dies Set.  The sentiment is from the Wood Words Stamps Set.

Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango Inks were used here with the Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies coordinated set.  The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest Stamps Set, and the background is the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  A Crushed Curry Twine bow is the perfect accent!

Here’s the Pick a Pumpkin Stamps and Dies.  And it’s so versatile–those leaves could be used year round!

LOVE, LOVE THE NEW STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

This is my very first experience with alcohol markers, and it’s like a whole new artistic world has been opened to me!  They make creating beautiful projects so much easier.

This little Eskimo card was created using the Cookie Cutter Stamps and coordinated punch.  I used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Combo Packs to color his coat, gloves and boots.  The face was colored with the Ivory Blend and I used a touch of Calypso Coral light for the “rosy cheeks.”  Wink of Stella added to the “snow effect” on the igloo created with you Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then die cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Such a cutie!

Cute piggies!

 

Here’s a smile for the day!

Crafting on the Hill Team Member, Elizabeth Adams, absolutely fell in love with the This Little Piggy Stamp Set when we got a sneak peek at OnStage Savannah.  Here’s one of the adorable cards she’s crafted with it:

Isn’t it adorable?  Of course, so many of us immediately thought of a “certain” precious children’s story, or of a “certain” movie about a very precocious little pig.   She stamped the pig image on watercolor paper, then cut out that and a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Too, too cute!

Here’s the This Little Piggy Stamp Set and you can order it here.

Painted Harvest Card Ideas

Fall into Autumn with the Painted Harvest Bundle

The Painted Harvest Bundle is so much FUN to create lovely autumn projects!

Here are a couple of the cards I’ve created using this set:

Painted harvest 1 with logopainted harvest 3 with logo

There a SO many different color combinations you can use for these flowers to create so many different looks!  I like Crushed Curry as a base, with Cajun Craze or Tangerine Tango as the top.  Early Espresso is my preferred color for the center, stamped 2 or 3 times to get the desired effect.

The top card is stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and the leaves are stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso, then I used the Pretty Little Labels Punch and mounted it with dimensionals.  (Or “puffy dots”!)  A strip of Burlap Ribbon was just the right finishing touch!

The bottom card is stamped onto Very Vanilla mounted on Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green on Old Olive Cardstock, then punched with the Leaf Punch.  There are 2 small pieced of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper bannered at the top corner.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso, then punched with the Everyday Labels Punch and mounted with dimensionals.

 

This fantastic Painted Harvest Bundle includes the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and the Leaf Punch.  The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is included in the DESIGNER SERIES PAPER BUY 3, GET 1 FREE SALE, October 1st-31st.  Go here to get this Bundle and get 10% off, and go here to find out about the Designer Series Paper Sale!

Tips and Tricks for using this lovely Painted Harvest Stamp Set:

  • Stamp all layers of the image
  • Make sure your ink pads are well inked
  • Use nice, even pressure when stamping
  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Keep in mind that lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get your desired look
  • The stamp is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper
