Story of Elegance

Happy Tuesday!   Thank you for stopping by.

Not that I’m trying to rush summer away, but I am really ready for fall.  It’s my favorite time of the year.  And I love my pumpkin spice everything that only comes around during this season.

Speaking of pumpkins what better way to prepare for fall than with the new Pretty Pumpkins Bundle?  This bundle has the prettiest pumpkins you’ll find anywhere this season.  I played with it today and here’s what I made.

Autumn card made with Stampin' Up! products

Pretty Pumpkins Gather Together

I really like the warm, rich look of this card.  I’ll be using this card as an invitation this season to invite friends to a cup of tea and tasty pumpkin treats.   The fonts in stamp set are so elegant – I couldn’t wait to ink them up!

I added a piece of the wonderful Blackberry Beauty DSP to frame this simple beauty.  The foiling in the paper adds just the right amount of pizzazz.

A Closer Look

Elegance Made Easy 

To recreate this card,  cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Blackberry Bliss  card stock and adhere to a card base made of Thick Very Vanilla card stock.

Cut a piece of Blackberry Beauty DSP  to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and add to the card base.

Next, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock to 4 7/8″ x 3 3/8″.  Stamp a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of  Very Vanilla card stock as shown using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Add to the Blackberry piece and then center onto the card base.

Die cut the pumpkins that are stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and adhere to the card as shown with Dimensionals and you’re done!
