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

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  Slimline cards are all the rage right now and I thought this sketch worked wonderfully to try out a slimline design.  I paired the new design with the Autumn Greetings stamp set and I am delighted how the card went together.

The sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Greetings:


The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 7, scored at 3-1/2

One extra card front: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 3-1/2

Mat: Crumb Cake 6-1/8 x 3-1/4

DSP panel:  Plaid Tidings 6 x 3-1/8

Sentiment: Whisper White 7/8 x 4-3/4 punched on the end with the Banner Triple Punch

The details:

  • Stamp the floral image from the Autumn Greeting stamp set onto Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink
  • Color the image with your Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Large flowers: Mango Melody
  • Oak leaves: Granny Apple Green touched with a bit of light pumpkin pie
  • Maple Leaves: Old Olive touched with a bit of light Cajun Craze
  • Dahlia: Blackberry Bliss
  • Wheat: Daffodil Delight touched with a bit of Mango Melody
  • Eucalyptus: Crumb Cake
  • Berries: Cajun Craze touched with a bit of Real Red
  • Pumpkin: Pumpkin Pie
  • When you have the image colored you can cut it  out with the Autumn Essentials Dies (I did not have the die so I fussy cut the image out)

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your Autumn Greetings sentiment using the saying from the Autumn Greetings stamp set
  • I inked the image first in Versa Mark then right into my Blackberry Bliss Ink
  • Put Clear Heat Emboss Powder over the sentiment and then heat set the image with your heat tool

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Bumblebee In Color Mini Ribbon around the card front panel
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere the DSP panel to the Crumb Cake mat
  • Attach the Crumb Cake/DSP panel to the front of the card centering it
  • Attach your floral image to the front left of the card with Dimensionals
  • Tuck your sentiment on the front of the card with Glue Dots

Finishing details:

  • Adhere a Bumblebee bow to the top of the left hand side of the floral image with a Glue Dots
  • Add a few of the Artistry In Bloom Mango Melody Sequins here and there on the front of the card and you are finished
