Harvest Hellos, Magnolia Lane DSP, Thanksgiving Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I bought the "Harvest Hellos" set because I like the apple.  I was also intrigued by the jack o lantern and just a plain pumpkin that you can make with the set.  It's all about versatility for me.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock that I stamped using the leaf from the "Harvest Hellos" set and Cajun Craze ink.  I taped that to the front of the card.

I wanted something green but I didn't buy any fall papers this time around.  Mostly because I hardly use any of them.  I'm sure there were some, but they were not on my wish list. I ended up using some Mossy Meadow colored green and white striped Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" pack. I cut that strip 1-1/2" x 5-1/4".  I taped it directly to the Pumpkin Pie piece.

Then I stamped the pumpkin on a piece of the gingham Regals DSP using Cajun Craze ink. I love those 6" x 6" paper packs.  They used to have the 12" x 12" ones and that was just way too much paper plus it was a kind of expensive.  This was affordable enough that I could get all 4 packs and not break the bank.  I took the matching punch and punched out the pumpkin.  I stamped a leaf on a scrap piece of Mossy Meadow.  Then I lost the leaf and had to stamp and punch another one.  Oh, I stamped the leaf on Mossy Meadow card stock using Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped the stem on a scrap piece of Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink.  I punched those out also.  I set the pumpkin in place using Dimensionals and I glued the one end of the stem and leaf to the pumpkin.

The words are from the same "Harvest Hellos" set. I stamped them on a scrap of Whisper White using Mossy Meadow ink.  I punched them out using a 1-1/4" punch and I die cut a circle just a little bit larger.  It was die cut from a piece of Cajun Craze card stock.  I taped those two circles together and I taped the circles to the DSP strip.  I found the other leaf and I added Dimensionals to the back and set it in place on the word piece.  It must have been meant to be! I like it there.

This was a fun and easy card to make. 

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
