Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Greetings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

Our challenge today has five colors and we had to pick at least three.  I sorta over-achieved.  Pretty sure I hit all five with my Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP providing the backdrop to the wunnermus Autumn Greetings bundle.  Take a look-see:

And…here’re the colors we had to select from!

I borrowed inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, too!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and cut the right side of the panel using one of the two edge dies in the Autumn Essentials Dies (bundled with Autumn Greetings!).

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the big floral image from Autumn Greetings in Early Espresso ink.  Then I cut the middle out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly Die.

I matted the full panel on Cajun Craze with Liquid Glue then popped the die cut piece back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the dies in the Autumn Essentials, I cut some wheat from gold Brushed Metallic and Early Espresso card stocks.  I also cut a couple of small detail pumpkins and one large from Very Vanilla – and the matching solid pumpkins from a piece of Mint Macaron Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.

I adhered the wheat die cuts to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the detailed pumpkins to the solid ones and added them to the card front as well!

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it to the pumpkins with a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Autumn Greetings sentiment in Cajun Craze.  Using the Banners Pick a Punch, I cut banner ends.  Then I adhered the strip to the card front, over the bow, using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

For the inside, I cut a Crumb Cake panel with the Autumn Essentials edge die.  Then I used my Stamparatus to add a second Autumn Greetings sentiment in Cajun Craze.   I finished it off with the leaves and small pumpkin in Early Espresso.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more leaves and the pumpkin in Early Espresso on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The big and bold Autumn Greetings floral image is gorgeous – even NOT colored!  And the bundled Autumn Essentials includes such wonderful pumpkin-building dies and grasses – on top of cutting out the big floral!  It’s definitely a gotta-have-it bundle!!

And the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is just stunning with its touches of gold foiling!

I hope you like!
