Pick A Pumpkin

PickAPumpkin_400Do you have a favorite stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog yet? I know, there are so many to choose from!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons and one of my favorite card classes is one I do each September that has a Fall theme to it. This card uses the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and thinlit dies from the Holiday catalog. We made this in my card class last week and I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the squares. I love the stitching detail around each of the squares! Gold foil adds just enough bling to the card and the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper adds a beautiful fall look. And I love the pumpkin thinlit cutout that comes with the other dies, and it sits proudly on it's own without a matching stamp, in gold foil above the "Thank You". 

The other fun new item I used was the MultiPurpose Adhesive Sheets. Have you used these yet? They're a great replacement for some of the other adhesives you might have used for small or finer cut items (i.e. fine-tip glue pen, tombow glue). I just cut one of the adhesive sheets into the same size as the item I'm cutting out, like the gold pumpkin on the card. You adhere one side of the sheet to the gold foil (this requires removing the backing first), then cut the item out with the Big Shot. Then, you just remove the backing on the other size of the adhesive sheet (now stuck on back of the gold foil pumpkin) and adhere it to the card! It's similar to using a Xyron sticker machine, but with a layer to peel off. And, actually, I like these sheets better because you don't have to clear out the adhesive in between the areas that are open between the cuts, like you do with the xyron.

I hope that you've been inspired to create something on your own! See below for the products that were used for this card.
