Stampin’ Up! Versailles Gathered Leaves and Boughs

Good morning!  By the time you read this – Finn, Wayne and I’ll be headed to NC to winterize our RV trailer – it’s Wayne’s “home away from home” when he goes to work on the rental house.  Since Father Winter is looming down and the freeze warnings are flying around – seemed like a good time to be sure it was ready to get thru winter without frozen….anything! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see some of the techniques we played with – and the card we put together….here’s the replay!

I used die cuts from the Gathered Leaves AND Beautiful Boughs sets and a fun “napkin” coloring technique.  The “watercolored” die cuts were paired up with the Very Versailles stamp set (from the Annual Catalog) and a little Come to Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF sketch challenge!

I started by stamping the script image from Very Versailles in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake a few times on a piece of Come To Gather DSP – then I matted the panel on Cajun Craze for the card front.

With SNAIL – and a couple Glue Dots on the back – I adhered a strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around the end of the panel.  I wrapped a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (Come To Gather Ribbon Combo) and a piece of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo) around the Burlap Ribbon.

I created the Beautiful Boughs and Gathered Leaves using plain ole dinner napkins – check out the video to see how! – then I used my Aqua Painters to color them.  I saw this technique on a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial by Dave Brethauer and thought it looked fun!

For the leaves, I used Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie.  For the boughs – Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.  I lightly painted them all with some Frost White Shimmer Paint, too!

I adhered all the elements to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the loops behind the sentiment – I pulled some threads from a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and used Liquid Glue to adhere them in a loopy way.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Very Versailles sentiment in Cajun Craze on some of the Come to Gather DSP and cut it with a Stitched Nested Labels Die.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I finished it off with a few Pumpkin Pie gems from the Holiday Basic Rhinestones pack.

On the inside, I added some stamped-off-once Crumb Cake script from Very Versailles on a Whisper White panel.  I added a small Peaceful Bough image in stamped-off-THREE-times Old Olive.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more script and boughs on the front…

…and more Come to Gather DSP (with a little script from Very Versailles on it!) on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Every time I look out my window at this time of year – I see this combination of Fall leaves and pine boughs!  So….it’s perfect that I could re-create that with my Peaceful Boughs bundle and Gathered Leaves dies, don’t you think?  I also really love the vintage-y addition of the script from the Very Versailles stamp set.  I hope you like!

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:

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!
