Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Thinking of You Card

Most of the cards that I’ll be blogging about this week use simple stamping techniques which allow you to complete cards quickly! This is not my usual style…but I love the simplicity of simple stamping. Can you believe that none of my cards this week include die cutting? I know…hard to believe!

Today’s card is a CAS. One of my team members, Susan L. with Stampin2Die4.com, recently shared her version of this card in a Facebook group and I thought the card was so lovely I had to share it with you! Thank you for the inspiration, Susan!

The card was created using the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and three ink colors – So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Cherry Cobbler. This card comes together quickly, and the vibrant colors make a huge statement!

I began by stamping the maple leaf image from the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set in So Saffron, stamping the image around the upper 2/3 of the card edges. Next, the same image was stamped around the perimeter using Pumpkin Pie ink and I focused on allowing some of the So Saffron stamped leaves to show. The same leaf image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink, allowing some of the Pumpkin Pie leaves to show through.

A sentiment was stamped onto the front panel and the panel was matted to a piece of So Saffron cardstock. Linen thread was wrapped around the upper portion of this panel twice and the unit was adhered to the card front. A triple bow in linen thread was added to the card along with several amber gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack.

The same stamping technique was used to complete the inside panel and an additional greeting was added as well. The inside panel was also matted to a piece of So Saffron cardstock and adhered to the inside of the card.

The envelope received the same stamping technique on the front and envelope flap to finish off the card.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings and Rustic Pumpkins Thinking of You Card

Happy Monday! Today’s card features the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and the Rustic Pumpkins Dies. I started with a card base in Cherry Cobbler.

On a Very Vanilla panel I repeatedly stamped the maple leaf from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love creating card backgrounds using this technique! The stamp from this set has maple seedlings attached but I used my paper snips to cut the stamp in two pieces so that I could use only the maple leaf. The two pieces can be easily matched up again and placed on a stamping block in order to stamp the entire image. The vanilla panel was matted to a piece of Early Espresso then this unit was adhered to the card front.

The maple leaf was also stamped on the inside panel and envelope front and flap. I then used a small amount of Stampin’ Seal on the center of the card front and looped a length of gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhered to the Stampin’ Seal.

The two pumpkin dies, pumpkin stem, and vine were die cut in Gold Foil. I also die cut a circle in Early Espresso using the largest circle die from the Layering Circles Dies. The pumpkin was assembled then adhered to the circle then this unit was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a sentiment label at an angle in the upper left corner of the card then added a Rustic Metallic Dot.

This completes the card for today. You can find the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set and the Rustic Pumpkin Dies in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I just love the rich, warm colors of Fall! How about you?
