I’ve used the Grassy Grove Stamp Set and Grove Dies to make several cards in the past – one was a spring themed card and the other was a summer themed card. Today I’m using the Grassy Grove stamps and dies to create a fall-themed card. Here are the previous cards made from the Grassy Grove set.
I love the versatility of these stamps and dies!
For today’s card I started with a card base in Crushed Curry. I first created a background that would sit behind the large tree die cut frame and I stamped a row of pine trees towards the bottom of this panel then used blending brushes to create the sky using Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape.
For the tree frame die cut I used blending brushes again to color the entire frame in Daffodil Delight ink, then came back with Mossy Meadow to blend a little green onto the die cut frame for the leaves on the trees. Crushed Curry was also blended in spots to darken the tree canopy. A Stampin’ Blend was used on the frame to darken some of the leaves in Cajun Craze then I blended this out a bit with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. The tree trunks were colored in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. The die cut tree frame was adhered to the background panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then this unit was adhered to a Mossy Meadow mat and adhered to the card front with liquid glue.
For the foreground of the scene, I stamped the small hill and used sponge daubers to ink up the stamp in Mossy Meadow, Gorgeous Grape and Crushed Curry then stamped this on white cardstock. This image was die cut and adhered to the die cut tree frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Several greenery sprigs were die cut in Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green and tucked under the hill die cut.
A sentiment from the Hope & Prayer Stamp Set was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock then adhered to a mossy meadow mat. A small linen thread double bow was adhered to the upper left of the sentiment label along with a small leaf sprig.
Pine trees were stamped in Mossy Meadow on the inside panel and this panel was adhered to a Mossy Meadow mat, then adhered inside of the card base. Pine trees also adorn the envelope front and envelope flap.
The Grassy Grove Stamp Set and Grove Dies are one of my favorite sets! I’ve started planning how I’ll create a winter scene with this set and I already have some ideas on how to accomplish this – it has become a personal challenge for me to create a card for each season using this set.
This is such a satisfying set to play with! I was going to say it is a satisfying set to “work” with…but that wouldn’t be accurate…it’s too much fun! I hope you give this card a try and put your own spin on a fall scene.

Earn Double Honey Drop Points for a Sale-A-Bration Countdown!
Sale-A-Bration isn’t ending quite yet…but will be ending on August 31. Beginning on August 22 I’ll be doing a countdown and I’m offering customers the chance to earn double Honey Drop points in honor of our last days of Sale-A-Bration! You might be asking – what are Honey Drop points?
Qualifying customers can earn Honey Drop points from me as part of my Honeybee Rewards Program. Once you earn 16 Honey Drops you can earn products valued up to $40 from any current catalog from me. Here is how the double points work:
- Place an order in my online store between August 22 and August 31 to earn double Honey Drops.
- If you place an order of $25 (before shipping and any applicable tax) you will receive 2 Honey Drop points (instead of just one), for a $50 order you’ll earn 4 points, for a $75 order you’ll earn 6 points, and so on. Normally you would earn only 1 point for every $25 spent.
- Collect sixteen (16) Honey Drops and you can earn any product or products with a value up to $40 from any current catalog and the item will be mailed directly to you! You’ll receive free shipping, too!
- Each of your online orders must be for $25 or more for you to be eligible to earn double Honey Drop points (before Shipping and any applicable tax).
- And, it’s still Sale-A-Bration time so if you place at least a $50 order from me you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
- Don’t forget to use my current host code, AHPKF7WD, when placing orders. This qualifies you to receive a free thank you gift from me (if your order is over $150 don’t use the host code. You are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards but you’ll still get the free gift from me).
