The September InKing Royalty Blog Hop paired with #MojoSketch523

It’s Autumn with Come to Gather DSP and the InKing Royalty September Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around AUTUMN. There is so much to love about the transition from summer to winter, even if we have to wait a few more months to have a Florida Fall. Each of us has created a project which means Autumn and we hope you find inspiration in our Autumn-themed projects! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The gorgeous colors in the blog hop banner are from the Come to Gather DSP.  This is the same DSP pack I used for this blog hop/Mojo Monday challenge.  With the completion of this card, I have about half of the 16 Thanksgiving cards I need.  Hopefully, I won’t run out of this fabulous paper before I finish what I need.

Whenever I am stuck creatively I start looking for sketch challenges.  If I can pair a sketch challenge with a color challenge, I am a very happy stamper!

Here’s the challenge banner from #MojoSketch523:

Here’s the card I created:

Come to Gather DSP and the Harvest Hellos Bundle

I just love these colors for a Florida Fall card!  The deep, rich traditional Thanksgiving colors do not appear this far south.  Therefore, I am thankful for the vibrant colors of Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron, and Early Espresso.  The very talented Stampin’ Up! designers really created a phenomenonally gorgeous set of patterns and colors.

Since the measurements have already been worked out for the sketch, I used them for the base of my card.  I did scale down the two focal circle elements.  Once I had the large circle and the two pumpkins, I knew when I added the sentiment banner I would have an even number of elements.  I knew I needed a fifth element, but I also wanted it to be subtle, so I decided to use the Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine set.  

Those pumpkins……. how fabulous that the one punch can create an adorable apple or pumpkin?  Talk about versatility!  Instead of embossing the Mint Macaron pumpkin I used the very subtle script pattern from the Subtles DSP.  When I stamped the pupmkin in Pretty Peacock, I did a little happy dance in my chair.  It worked!  YEAH!  

In order to accomodate all the popped up layers, provided by dimensionals, I needed to add a double high layer of them under the two pumpkins.  The picture of my card really doesn’t show how much dimension these little adhesive hexagons provide.

As always, I used a piece of DSP for the envelope flap.  This time I chose the feather pattern.  I stamped pumpkins using coordinating from Gather Together on the front, bottom, left corner.

With that, this card/envelope set was complete!

Very Definitely Short and Sweet Today

Once again, I am cutting it very close to the deadline for submitting a challenge card, which explains why this is definitely short and sweet today.

Here’s the challenge banners for both challenges:

          

Here’s the card I created:

Season of Thanks

Garden Green, Soft Suede, and Pumpkin Pie could very well be all the fall colors I will see in Florida.  I used the Come Harvest Hellos bundle for the pumpkin.  How great was it for Stampin’ Up! to have a punch that will create both an apple and a pumpkin?  I also used Nature’s Roots stamp set for the leaves trio and the wood ring stamp in the background of the vertical panel.  I used the Season of Thanks sentiment and the pumpkins on the front of the envelope from the Gather Together stamp set.

While I really tried to follow the Mojo Monday sketch, I also took some creative liberties by adding a layer of the leaves and the pumpkin.  The addition of the burlap ribbon layer qualifies as my second creative liberty.  

I stamped the pumpkin on Pumpkin Pie cardstock using Soft Suede.  Then I used the Light Early Espresso blend for the outlining and the Crumb Cake combo blends.  

For the horizontal panel element, I chose DSP from the (now retired) Nature’s Poem, but the leaves on this pattern perfectly match the leaves I put under the pumpkin..  I stamped the leaves in Garden Green on Crumb Cake cardstock.  Then I used the Pumpkin Pie blends combo to color in those leaves.  

I ran the white layer of cardstock through the Big Shot using the Subtle 3D folder.  Then I started putting all the pieces together.  In order to accomodate the thickness of the burlap, I used dimensionals to pop that layer off the background.  I also used some dimensionals on the top and bottom of the vertical panel so it would lay flat over the DSP.  Finally, I used dimensionals again behind the pumpkin.  The leaves are attached directly to the pumpkin with Tombow liquid adhesive.

Once again, I finished this card by decorating the envelope.  I put a piece of the same DSP on the flap and stamped teh two pumpkins stamps on the bottom left corner of the card.  I stamped the large pumpkin full strength and stamped off the smaller pumpkins.

Thank you for stopping by today.  

Have a Peachy day!

Come Gather with #MojoSketch522

Mojo Monday Challenge with Poetic Artistry

I used to really enjoy playing along with the Mojo Monday challenges and have really missed it.   Running a weekly challenge is a challenge in and of itself.  So, imagine my surprise and happiness when Julee Tilman, of Poetic Artistry  revived the challenge.  Thankfully, these challenges are now bi-weekly.  Since I make cards specifically for challenges, and then miss the deadlines, I really enjoy the two week timetable.  

For Thanksgiving every year, I create cards for every family in attendance, and this year I need about 15, which includes friends of our family who have nowhere to go.  I have been using the Come to Gather DSP, the Gather Together bundle, and the ribbon combo pack.  So far, I have five cards, two of which I missed the link deadline.  

Here’s the challenge banner:

Here’s the card I create

Pretty Peacock and Early Espresso, Who Knew?

This DSP has some very traditional fall colors, and also has the non-traditional colors of Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron.  Early Espresso is also in this DSP, and I can’t get over the gorgeous colorcombination of Pretty Peacock and Early Espresso.  Mint Macaron plays a supporting role in this very non-traditional color combination.  I have a strong feeling that my cards this season will be in these colors, at least until I run out of the coordinating DSP.  If I run out, I can always get another pack.

The maple leaf is stamped onto vellum and then cropped using the coordinating dies.  I didn’t stamp anything on the smaller leaf.  Instead, I cropped it with the die and then used the embossing pad to run the leaf through the Big Shot.  It did take a couple of times to get the depth of impressions.

To create the various layers, I just had to mat the pieces in Early Espresso and adhear them together.   Easy Peasy!

Thank you for stopping by today.  

Have a Peachy day!
