Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness and Pumpkin Leaves for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to go straight up Fall festival with my card, using the Gourd Goodness stamp set and…a few goodies from my October Paper Pumpkin!  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Painted Autumn DSP, that I Fast Fuse’d to a Cajun Craze mat for the card front.  I wrapped a long length of Linen Thread around the card front three times, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used a Glue Dot to pull the three strands together – right about under the bow on the card.

Next, I raided the leftover pieces of my October Paper Pumpkin kit and adhered two pretty Gold leaves to the card front.  Don’t have this kit?  You can cut some leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits from Gold Foil and adhere them with some Liquid Glue. 🙂

Using the two-step pumpkin image in the Gourd Goodness stamp set – I stamped the first image in Peekaboo Peach on Very Vanilla.  Over the top, I stamped the second image in Pumpkin Pie.  The stems – also two-step – are stamped in Garden Green ink.  Then I fussy cut them.

I also cut a Cajun Craze pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits – and adhered it to another piece of Painted Autumn DSP with Liquid Glue.  Then I fussy cut that, too.

I built up my collage with the Patterned Pumpkin pumpkin adhered with Liquid Glue, popped the Gourd Goodness pumpkins on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then nestled a couple more leaves from the Paper Pumpkin kit in with Liquid Glue.  The final touch is a little Corrugated Elements heart!

My sentiment, from Gourd Goodness, is stamped in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch.  I used my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker to add faux stitches and then adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I made a Linen Thread multi-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over the center, I stuck a small Gold Faceted Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply added another of the Paper Pumpkin gold leaves to a Very Vanilla panel.  I would love to be able to buy sheets of these beautiful leaves (hello, Stampin’ Up!?).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gold leaf on the front…

…and another bit of Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Fall-on-a card….the perfect ode to plenty and thankfulness!  All from the Gourd Goodness stamp set, a Patterned Pumpkin die cut and a little bit of Paper Pumpkin parts!  Hope you like!

    I love your pumpkin card. Every time I go to order the gourd goodness stamp set, I end up changing my mind and getting something else instead. Next time I am definitely going to order it. The card you made has definitely convinced me of that is so cute. I love the way that you have layered the pumpkins and the leaves and it is simply perfect. But then again everything you make is perfect. M

    • Yes, indeed, Mary – this is kind of a sleeper stamp set. Looks pretty unassuming in the catalog! But – it has such beautiful possibilities! Thank you so much for your very kind words!! 🙂

  11. The layering, the colors, this card is stunning! Perfect in every way!
