I’m so glad you stopped by today. The inspiration for this months card came from a recent shopping trip to the dollar store to purchase supplies for a door hanger project. I wish I had it completed at the time this hop. Though there is die-cutting involved, it’s pretty #simplestamping.
- Card base is standard 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”
- DSP Layer is 5 1/4” x 4”
- ’Legs’ are 1/2” x 3”
Hello and welcome to this months Stamp It Fall Blog Hop.
Normally when it comes to cards of fall, I tend to rely on old techniques to blend the typical fall colors, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape you know all those colors. Today I wanted to try and not go back to the o’Faithful toolset – you know the ones, water painters, blending brushes and the trusty sponge dauber.
Using a standard PORTRAIT (flip open from bottom vs. side)
I used the Basic White to stamp my pumpkins from Pretty Pumpkins Bundle and cut the pumpkins using the Detailed Pumpkin dies.
Inside I added a scrap of DSP (3/4” x 4”) to add a little trim to the bottom of an otherwise boring Basic White insert that is also 4” x 5 1/4”.
I appreciate you taking a moment to stop by today and hope you were inspired to get creating. Don’t forget to enter by leaving a Comment using #StampinContest to win like Elizabeth did.

Welcome to my Stamp It Christmas in July post.
I’m excited to give you a small introduction to the Whimsy and Wonder Suite that will be available in the July – December Mini Catalog releasing on August 3, 2021. Note: I will update the product links when the catalog goes live.
I have to say, I had mixed feelings about this suite at first. I liked the whimsy trees, I liked some of the color combinations but I wasn’t sure of the combination together. Now I can’t wait to create more with it. The hardest part will be using the DSP. (I’m working on that problem in general Ha-Ha!)
Look at this Holly paper!!
- Berries in Blushing Bride
- Leaves in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron
- Hint a Holographic trim
How do you get over cutting it, putting adhesive on it and covering it up to display the other side. I could use my paper with a little less stress if they banned double sided DSP.
Here’s a sneak peek at the trees. Originally, I thought I was going to die cut one or more trees to use. So I arranged on my scrap to do all at once. Might see a few more in the background. 😉
As I looked at the other stamps, 🐿 squirrel moment 🐿 I instantly envisioned the word Joy for my tree topper. As my card has had a moment to ‘rest’, I think it needs more around my tree. It might be snow or gems.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.

Welcome to the Stamp It Group Easter Blog Hop
On March 1st, I issued 6” x 6” OSW (One Sheet Wonder) challenge to the team members of Kim’s Paper Krafters. I thought it would be fun to add that to this month’s blog hop. its a technique that has been around for awhile and often forgotten.You can create your own template or find many on Pintrest.
I added a 1/2” strip of Mint Macaron at 6” long to ensure perfect length to cut even with the card base. In playing with my layouts, I found I did like a thinner strip. You could also use ribbon or other paper.

Cut 2 pieces of Basic White
