Gather Together Bundle Meets Harvest Hellos

When I saw this card design on Pinterest by Cindy Schuster I knew I wanted to make my version of Cindy’s card.  I changed the colors and the dsp, but the basic design is the same. These two bundles are my favorite fall bundles in the Holiday Catalog.

Start off with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Pretty Peacock card base and add a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Come to Gather dsp. Cindy used a gingham banner. Next stamp your pumpkins in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie & Pretty Peacock. Also stamp the large leaves in Old Olive and die cut. The smaller leaves are from the Gather together bundle and they emboss and die cut at the same time, SCORE! I crumpled all the leaves and sponged the edges.  Punch 3 stems in Early Espresso and add to each pumpkin. Did you know that for a pumpkin, the larger part of the stem is on the bottom? (I did not know this).

What I really loved about this card is how the pumpkins and leaves were placed. To pop up the pumpkins I only added 2 dimensionals on the bottom. What this does is allow you to tuck the leaves under the pumpkins with a couple of Glue Dots. Once all the leaves were put in place, I added some of the curly pieces. Just cut a sliver and wrap around a skewer, add a drop of Tombow Glue on your pumpkins by the stem and hold in place for a few seconds.

I stamped the sentiment from Gather Together in Early Espresso Ink onto the Come To Gather dsp. Don’t forget the inside of your card, especially if your card base is dark. I added a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White and stamped the larger leaf in Old Olive. You can see it in the photo above.Supply List:

Snowman Hat Gift Card Holder

This time of year we are purchasing a few gift cards, ( I know I am! It always fits, perfect color, and mails easily…lol)  What better way to give a gift card in this cute Gift Card Holder. I purchased Julie Gibson’s 12 Days of Christmas. This is one of the tutorials that was included. Julie has some awesome projects. You can contact her at: So I won’t be giving out measurements.

The hat is made with Black Cardstock and that little band of dsp is from the Let It Snow Specialty dsp pack. Add the Striped Bermuda Bay Ribbon and the snowflake, with Glue Dots, from the Tags Tags Tags Dies. Finished off with a Holiday Rhinestone.

I bet this card would look great with some Craft White Ink sponged on all the edges.  Might have to give that a try. My Stamp Club gals made this card this week and loved it.

For the inside more of the Let It Snow dsp and the greeting. Tear & Tape is a must on the sides where the gift card goes.
