Ink and Inspiration - Pick a Season

 


Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Melva Peters from Canada. 

The theme this month is "Pick a Season!" I decided to use the Pretty Pumpkins bundle for my card - my season is Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is celebrated in October in Canada so this card is perfect for that.  I created this card as part of a recent Sketch Challenge.


I changed it up a little bit since my sentiment was too large to go in the bottom right.   Isn't the Cork paper perfect for a Thanksgiving card?  

Instructions

  1. Cut Early Espresso card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Very Vanilla card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Cork Specialty Paper 2" x 5 1/4" and adhere to Very Vanilla card stock using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut 7" of ribbon and colour using Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blend
  5. Adhere to Very Vanilla card stock above Cork using Stampin' Seal on back.
  6. Stamp sentiment in top right corner using Cajun Craze ink.
  7. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  8. Adhere Adhesive Sheets to back of Cajun Craze card stock and cut out detailed pumpkin.
  9. Adhere to the left hand side of card base.
  10. Stamp pumpkin with leaves using Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut out using die.
  11. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Cut 6" of ribbon and colour using Dark Cajun Craze Stampin Blend.
  13. Tie a bow and adhere to the top of the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.

You can get all of the supplies needed for the folder from my Online Store!   Check out the supply list below.

Check out my Youtube Video for tips and tricks to make this card. I did this card on a recent YouTube Live so you may notice more chatter in it than my normal videos. Don't forget to subscribe to my Stamping with Melva YouTube Channel

Now it's time to be inspired by all of the projects in this blog hop:
