Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun fall themed card featuring the Fireside Trimmings Bundle and the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper! If you are looking for “that one bundle” for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, then this bundle is for you! Not only that, but this bundle is also a great way to play with your Stampin’ Blends! Whether you have ALL the blends or are wanting to purchase a few, the Fireside Trimmings stamp set is definitely a great set to purchase!
For the base layer, use this design from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Cut a 2” x 4” piece of the copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock and emboss with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.
2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the fireplace in Early Espresso ink, color the outside in Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the inside with Light and Dark Gray Granite Stampin Blends, die-cut out with the coordinating die. TIP-I didn’t care for the vanilla outline around the die-cut, so I used my snips and fussy cut along the stamped outline.
3. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the wreath in Memento ink, color the bow in Dark Cinnamon Cider, the leaves in Light Cinnamon Cider, Light Granny Apple Green, and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends, and die-cut out with the coordinating die.
4. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the pumpkins in Memento ink, color the stems in Light Crumb Cake, the pumpkins in Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, and die-cut out with the coordinating die.
5. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the lantern in Memento ink, color the flame in Dark Mango Melody, the candle in Light Crumb Cake, the area around the candle in Light So Saffron, the lantern in Light Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends, and die-cut out with the coordinating die. TIP-I used my snips along the bottom of the lantern so that the lantern would “sit” on top of the fireplace and not have that extra vanilla cardstock line.
6. Use Basic Black cardstock to die-cut the fire grate.
7. Stamp the logs in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and die-cut out with the coordinating die.
8. Use the flame dies to cut out two pieces in Mango Melody and the large flame in Daffodil Delight cardstocks.
Use your grid paper to help line up the 2” embossed copper cardstock in the middle of the base layer and then adhere the fireplace on top, lining up along the bottom of the cardstock/base layer evenly:
Place some adhesive on the back of the logs to adhere the fire grate and the Mango Melody flames, use a glue dot to adhere the Daffodil Delight flame, and then adhere this piece to the inside of the fireplace. The lantern and pumpkins are adhered along the top of the fireplace and the wreath is adhered as shown with Mini Dimensionals:
This completed piece is adhered to an Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Fireside Trimmings in Early Espresso ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” piece of DSP along the bottom:
Isn’t this a fun fall themed card? While it may seem like a lot of supplies were used, it was really just coloring with Stampin’ Blends! Don’t forget, they best way to stamp with photopolymer stamps is to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat!
