Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!
I figured to give you another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek – using the wonderful Gather Together and Harvest Hellos bundles – plus some Come to Gather DSP – and make a collage card for Fall! Take a look-see:
And…here’s our sketch for the challenge!
I started with a piece of Early Espresso card stock, folded to make a landscape card front – and, using the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, I stamped the leaves across the front of the card base in Early Espresso ink.
Next up is a strip of Come to Gather DSP, matted on Mint Macaron, and adhered right to the card front with Liquid Glue. A second design, also matted on Mint Macaron, was next.
I used the same DSP design that I made my strip from and cut a Stitched Shapes circle.
The leaves – all cut with the wonderful dies in the Gathered Leaves Die set – are cut (and embossed at the same time!) from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock card stocks. I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist the card stock before running it thru the die cutting machine. Yes – I did one set without misting….liked it better with the water. So… 😉 I lightly curled the leaves just using my fingers to roll them.
I pulled out the Harvest Hellos stamp set and stamped the large pumpkin in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla. I colored it with my Dark So Saffron and Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends – then I punched it out with the bundled Apple Builder Punch. I also punched a little stem from Early Espresso.
I used the sentiment from Harvest Hellos and stamped it on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock. Over top is a small pumpkin from Gather Together, stamped in stamped-off-once Mint Macaron – then cut with the matching die from Gathered Leaves.
I built up the collage with Liquid Glue for the leaves and Stitched Shapes Circle – and Dimensionals for the pumpkins. Before adhering the colored pumpkin, I added a few loops of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the new Gather Together Ribbon Combo.
I added some Pumpkin Pie jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Harvest Hellos in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel. Over top is a stamped-off-once Mint Macaron pumpkin from Gather Together. I added a few more of those pumpkins – full strength! – across the bottom.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Early Espresso card base and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…
…and more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! These two bundles – Harvest Hellos and Gather Together – just go together like peanut butter and jelly! Having them both – plus the Come To Gather DSP – will give you a huge head start for all your Fall and Thanksgiving projects! You’ll be able to get your hands on all of it come 4 September! I hope you like!
