Cute Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Chums Thanksgiving Card Idea

Cute Thanksgiving card made with Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums Stamp Set. Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comLast month I made a sweet and simple Seasonal Chums Christmas card and thought it would be fun to use the same card layout to make a cute Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Chums Thanksgiving card with the pumpkin stamp from the same set.

What you see on my hand stamped Thanksgiving card is the back side of the jack-o-lantern stamp from the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set. You get a two for one!

The die-cut leaves the pumpkin is resting upon are from the coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies. The pumpkin stamp has the leaf die and spider web die to coordinate with it, the snowman has a snowflake die, and the reindeer a Christmas tree die.

There are greeting stamps included with the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set. Because this stamp set was designed to make gift tags, the greetings are small. The greeting for my cute Thanksgiving card is from the Stampin’ Up! Basket of Wishes Stamp Set.

The patterned papers are two of the twelve designs from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. It, like the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set, is from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Many of the products are limited-edition and available only for a short time.

Amazingly Realistic! Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness Card

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness Stamp Set used to made a Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comThe pumpkins and gourds are so realistic you’ll be trying to convince your friends and family it isn’t a picture and that you truly did make your Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness card!

Kudos to the designer of the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set. Even though my girlfriend sat across from me and watched me stamp the pumpkins and gourds, she couldn’t help herself from touching them. They are so realistic she expected to feel the texture of the pumpkins and gourds.

 

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness Stamp Set used to made a Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

 

The secret, second only to the design of the pumpkins and gourd stamps, is that Gourd Goodness is a two-step stamp set. That means it takes at least two steps to complete an image. The first step is to stamp the most detailed stamp in your darkest color and then the most solid stamp stamped directly over top in a lighter color. That gives you the remarkable shading and detail. 

 

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness Stamp Set used to made a Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

 

The 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog states to “Use the Seasonal Layers dies to cut out multiple accents.”  That is absolutely true. The die-cut leaves on my hand stamped Gourd Goodness card are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. They do provide a fantastic decorative touch. But, I want you to know the leaf die is not the same shape to die-cut the leaf stamp in the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set.

Clean and Simple Paisleys & Posies Card

This isn’t just a clean and simple card, it’s seriously Clean and simple Stampin' Up! Paisleys & Posies Cardclean and simple. This clean and simple Paisleys & Posies card is quite striking in its simplicity.

While making a pile of the November Paisleys & Posies thank you cards, a vision of a clean and simple card went through my mind several times. Today I finally sat down to make it.

The stamp set was selected. An important key to attractive clean and simple card is a great color combination.  I immediately went to my 2016-2016 In Color Combinations e-book to choose a 3-color combination from the 50 color combinations. Click HERE to learn how to order have this colorful tool for only $14.95.

My 3-color In Color combination choice was Sweet Sugarplum / Mint Macaron / Early Espresso. Perfect for the handmade greeting card in mind.

Stampin' Up! Paisleys & Posies Card

The flower and leaves are from the Stampin’ Up! Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set. The flower stamp has a swirl on the stem where you’d normally find a leaf. You don’t see it on my hand stamped greeting card because I omitted it by using a Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Marker to color only the portion of the stamp I wanted. Cool stamping technique. I then stamped the smallest leaf stamp in the set twice with Mint Macaron Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.

The flower dressed up the already beautiful “In Everything Give Thanks” greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Suite Seasons Stamp Set (25% off through November 30, 2016!).

All the supplies to make my clean and simple Paisleys & Posies card are pictured below and available to order now in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.

Pretty, Pretty Pumpkin! Beautiful Branches Card

The versatility of the limited-edition Stampin’ Up! Stampin' Up! Beautiful Branches CardThoughtful Branches is amazing! Responding to a comment left on my video on how to make custom color Glimmer Paper for a Thoughtful Branches card, I saw on the side that a couple of clever stampers turned the tree leaves / hydrangea blooms die-cut upside down to create a pumpkin. I could hardly wait to create my own pumpkin card!

I don’t know what it is about the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies, but I just find myself using them with Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Paper again and again.

And now I’m at it again, this time using the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper from the upcoming 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Branches Card

The pumpkin was easy. A leaf was easy too. You have two choices in the same set of Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies: a leaf from the flower stem and leaves die or the single leaf Framelits Dies. I tried both and preferred the smaller leaf die. But where do we get a stem for our pumpkin? That turned out to be easy too.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies

The pumpkin stem is the bottom portion of the stem and leaves, again turned upside down.

Once again, out came my Sponge Brayers and Classic Stampin’ Pads to make Glimmer Paper in my colors of choice – Chocolate Chip and Old Olive for the stem and leaf. But the colors were just not as deep as the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper. It was time for intense color. Out came the Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad Refills. Added a couple of drops directly onto the die-cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and used the Sponge Brayers to spread the ink. They both hold their own with the manufactured Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper.

This morning Stampin’ Up! announced the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies are now available only while supplies last. They also added they WILL NOT be included in any future publications.

If you have not yet order a Thoughtful Branches Bundle (stamp set and dies ordered together saving you 10% on both), order one now in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com before they are sold out and gone forever!

Stampin’ Up! Holiday Home: House on a leaf covered hill

Stampin' Up! Holiday Home Autumn CardWith some sponging, you too can also have a house from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Home Stamp Set on a leaf covered hill.   Which came first – the sponging or stamping of the leaves?  Not sure what the card creator of this Founder’s Circle swap card did, but I would start with the sponging to form my hill and then fill in the leaves.

 The house, small leaves, greeting and pumpkin are all from the Holiday Home Stamp Set.  Holiday Home is like playing dress up dolls but with houses.  So much fun!

The trees are from the most popular Stampin’ Up! stamp set ever, Lovely as a Tree.  We’re seeing Holiday Home paired a lot with the Stampin’ Up! White Christmas Stamp Set.  For this card design, Lovely as a Tree was a good choice.  The trees look as if they are off in the distance with a small tree in the front yard. 

Do you see the larger leaves on the hill stamped in Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad ink?  The maple leaf is from the Project Life Holiday Cheer Stamp Set.  A little splash of color among all the Cajun Craze sponging and leaves.

The house was die-cut with the coordinating Homemade Holiday Framelits Die.  The artist colored outside the lines of the house.  This served two purposes.  The first is so there isn’t a white border.  The second benefit is if you don’t place the Framelits Die on just right, the less than perfect die-cut isn’t nearly as noticeable.  

Because we can see brushmarks, you’d have to assume Stampin’ Write Markers were what was used to color the house.  Rather looks like siding.

Holiday Home has 24 stamps in the set.  The bundle includes the Holiday Home Stamp Set and Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies for the very reasonable price of $31.95.  Lots of dress up the houses fun is waiting for you when you order the Holiday Home Bundle in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!  Click on the picture of the products you’d like to order.

Simple Stampin’ Up! For All Things Card Idea

Stampin' Up! For All Things and Autumn Wood ElementsThe Autumn Wooden Accents Embellishments from the Holiday Catalog dress up my simple Stampin’ Up! For All Things card.  You might think because they’re made of wood they’re heavy.  There are feather light.  It will not cost any additional postage due to weight or thickness adding these to my card.  Of the handmade autumn cards I’ve sent with them, haven’t had a single report of one that got broken going through the mail processing machines.  That’s great news if you’d like to dress up your fall cards with them too.

 

 

Stampin' Up! For All Things and Autumn Wood Elements Card

Speaking of dressing up a simple handmade card, how about the three different colors for the “Grateful for You” greeting? Easy to do with the Many Marvelous Markers.

I wanted fall colors without using the expected, while perfectly lovely, Cajun Craze.  For my autumn color combination, I went to my favorite color source – the Color Coach.  One of the Old Olive combinations provided the Old Olive, Soft Suede Crushed Curry combo.

Stampin' Up! Color Coach for autumn color combination

One other easy step to keep my simple card from being ordinary are the layers.  I didn’t use the usual 1/4″ for each layer.  The Crushed Curry layer is only 1/8″ larger than the Very Vanilla Cardstock.  That gives each side only 1/16″ matting.  With that small of a mat, your measurements need to be as exact as possible.  There isn’t any room to be slightly off.  For something so little, it will rat you out. 🙂   Always worth it for a slight touch-of-color accent.

Stampin' Up! For All Things CardWhile the Crushed Curry Cardstock layer is only 1/8″ larger than the Very Vanilla, it’s 1/2″ smaller than my Old Olive Cardstock card base.  You can see how these two not-the-usual size layers stepped up my For All Things card.

One more ever-so-easy step up was to use Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the Crushed Curry Cardstock.  You can see it pretty well in this sideview picture.
