Gourd Goodness Three Gourds Thanks
F all thank you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Always Artichoke Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Tranquil Tide Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" from Crumb Cake Cardstock
- 2-1/4" x 5" of Very Vanilla Cardstock
- scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock at least 3" long
Mount the Burlap background stamp on Block F. Place it rubber side up on your work surface. Ink it up by pouncing or rubbing the Crumb Cake Ink Pad all over it.
Pick up the stamp and stamp it at an angle onto the Crumb Cake rectangle so it goes off the edges on the left and top sides.
Adhere the stamped Crumb Cake layer to the Tranquil Tide layer and then to the front of the Always Artichoke card.
Cut a 3" piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon with an angle on one end.
Put a small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the Crumb Cake layer so it is about 1" in from the left side and 1" in from the bottom.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape and adhere the piece of ribbon to it so that the angled end is on the left.
As you are ready to stamp on each piece of cardstock using the Gourd Goodness stamps, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "Why, Thank You" sentiment from the Gourd Goodness Set on Block G. Carefully ink up only the words "thank you" by pressing the stamp onto the edge of the open Tranquil Tide Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment onto the scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
Unlock the Classic Label Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment into the punch. Carefully line up the sentiment so it is centered in the punching area from top to bottom and more to the left side. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment punch out to the piece of ribbon using Tear & Tape Adhesive so that the left end of the punch out is about 1/4" from the angled end of the ribbon.
Place the Very Vanilla rectangle on the Stampin' Pierce Mat horizontally.
Mount the more solid, bumpy gourd image on Block B. Ink it up with the Always Artichoke Ink Pad. Stamp it on one side of the rectangle of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
Mount the more detailed, bumpy gourd image on Block B. Ink it up with the Tranquil Tide Ink Pad. Stamp it over the previously stamped bumpy gourd image.
Mount the more solid, round gourd image on Block B. Ink it up with the Pear Pizzazz Ink Pad. Stamp it on the middle of the vanilla rectangle. Clean the stamp, but leave it on the block.
Re-ink the stamp with the Crumb Cake Ink Pad. Stamp it on the other end of the vanilla rectangle. Clean the stamp and put it away.
Mount the more detailed, round gourd image on Block B. Ink it up with the Always Artichoke Ink Pad. Stamp it over the previously stamped Pear Pizzazz round gourd image. Clean the stamp, but leave it on the block.
Re-ink the stamp with the Pear Pizzazz Ink Pad. Stamp it over the previously stamped Crumb Cake round gourd image. Clean the stamp and put it away.
Use the Pear Pizzazz Marker to color in clear spaces on the bumpy gourd and the Crumb Cake/Pear Pizzazz round gourd.
Cut out the gourds by hand using Paper Snips.
Adhere the bumpy gourd to the card front flat so it is about 1/4" in from the right side and about 3/4" up from the bottom.
Adhere the Pear Pizzazz/Always Artichoke round gourd flat at a slight angle over the bottom right of the bumpy gourd.
Pick out a Boxwood Wreaths Embellishment and uncurl it. Cut it in half. Put one half back in the box to be used on a future project. Cut the remaining half in half again. Put one piece back in the box to be used on a future project.
Put Mini Glue Dots on the backs of two leaves of the piece of Boxwood Wreaths Embellishment, one near each end.
Adhere the piece of Boxwood Wreaths Embellishment to the card front so it is just to the left of the bumpy gourd and sticks up.
Adhere the Crumb Cake/Pear Pizzazz round gourd to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals so that it covers the bottom end of the Boxwood Wreaths Embellishment and the right side of the sentiment punch out.
