Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - August 2022

Time for another Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing "Fall or Halloween" projects. My card features the Stampin' Up! Fond of Autumn Bundle.  I love this bundle and there is a fun surprise with the dies - there is one die to cut out the large image and 1 die that will cut this large image into 4 separate pieces!  How cool is that!

Isn't this a pretty card in Pale Papaya!


  1. Cut Pale Papaya card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold on score line to form card base.

  3. Emboss using the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder.
  4. Colour embossed cardstock using Pale Papaya ink using your Blending Brush

  6. Wrap Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent ribbon around card base and tie a bow on the left side.
  7. Stamp large image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Basic White card stock
  8. Colour using Stampin' Blends - Daffodil Delight, Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya, Crumb Cake
  9. Cut out using large die that cuts image into multiple pieces
  10. Adhere die cut pieces to card base using Dimensionals
  11. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
