Stampin’ Up! Gather Together a Monster Bash for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 our theme is Halloween Fun!  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 do a Fall-ish Halloween card – sort of “serious” and sort of “fun”.  So…I pulled out the Gather Together and Spooktacular Bash Bundles – plus some Monster Bash DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is courtesy of the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I started with some Crushed Curry paper from the Monster Bash DSP that I matted on Cajun Craze for the card front.

With the Gathered Leaves Dies from the Gather Together Bundle, I cut several leaves from Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Tip:  use a Stampin’ Spritzer to dampen the card stock before cutting the leaves.  The dies will be able to do their embossing much better that way.  And – when you take the cut and embossed leaves out of the dies, you can gently curl them with your fingers!  Perfect Fall leaves!

I used the Gather Together stamps to stamp the two pumpkin images in Cajun Craze on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Then I fussy cut them (versus using the dies because I wanted no-border pumpkins!).  I colored them with my Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

For the little ghouls – I just fussy cut a couple of likely spook-ies from the Monster Bash DSP.

Using Liquid Glue, I built up the collage with leaves, pumpkins and ghoulies!

I stamped the Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White and cut it with an Ornate Frames Die.  Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used two lengths of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack to tie a simple bow, which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue.  A few Pumpkin Pie rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second Spooktacular Bash sentiment in Cajun Craze on Whisper White.  I stuck a Pumpkin Pie Rhinestone next to the sentiment.  I also added a few pumpkins from Gather Together in Cajun Craze – coloring them with the Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze panel and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Gather Together pumpkins on the front…

…and more of the Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This particular Monster Bash DSP – and those little ghoulies – look like something Mr. Disney would put in the Haunted Mansion, don’t you think?  And I can just see them in the courtyard outside the ride, surrounded by Fall-inspired Gathered Leaves and Gather Together pumpkins!  With the addition of the Spooktacular Bash sentiments…we’ve got a fun Fall scene for Halloween!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Amy’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Come and Gather 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 Hop is a color 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!

When I saw the color combo for the challenge – I immediately thought – Come to Gather DSP.  Then I spent a little time hemming and hawing and decisioning.  Like…for about 5 seconds.  WAS this the right choice??  Should I go with the unexpected??  And then I remembered back to my college days – the first answer you believe to be true…usually is.  So…I stuck with my original choice and added some beautiful leaves and sentiments from the Gather Together Bundle.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our color scheme – so pretty! 🙂

When I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch layout this week – my brain “saw” the card!

This Gather Together bundle – with the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies – is a fave – cuz it perfectly lends itself to my favorite card element – the Collage! So, of course that’s what I did!

I started with the wonderful wood-grain paper from the Come To Gather DSP and matted it on Cajun Craze for the card front.  I used a second design, also matted on Cajun Craze, for the horizontal strip element.

I cut yet another – predominantly Pretty Peacock – paper with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – letting one edge hang off.  Then I trimmed that excess with a Paper Trimmer.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Tags & Feathers Element directly to the card front.

I inked up the large leaf from Gather Together in Early Espresso, stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it on a piece of the wood-grain Come To Gather DSP.  Over that, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and then cut the leaf with the matching Gathered Leaves Die.  I adhered it to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stampin’ Spritzer to lightly mist some Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze card stock and cut out the three smaller leaves from both colors (giving me 6 cut-and-embossed leaves). While they were still damp, I lightly curled them with my fingers.

I carefully adhered five of the leaves around and under the sentiment leaf, using Liquid Glue.  Then I used a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the points of the sentiment leaf to fully stick it down.

I added the sixth leaf to the wooden tag with Liquid Glue.

I created a double-loop bow using a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack) and a length of Linen Thread.  I just used the two lengths together as I wound the bow – and I reduced the number of loops to two big and two small!  I stuck the bow on with a couple of Glue Dots.  The final touch was three copper-finish Designer Elements.

On the inside, I added a second Gather Together sentiment in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top is another leaf – in stamped off TWICE Early Espresso.  I also added a few splatters in stamped-off-THREE times Cajun Craze.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full strength Early Espresso leaf and Cajun Craze splatters on the front…

…and more Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The entire Gather Together suite simply screams I LOVE FALL, don’t you think?  The Gather Together stamp set is perfect with it’s images and sentiments.  And…the Gathered Leaves dies – that emboss as they cut (with no additional pads/shims needed!) – is simply…wunnermus!  And they complement the gorgeous Come to Gather DSP like peanut butter does chocolate!   I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek 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 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!
