Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset

Hi friends. I have one last Fall card and of course another Christmas card. Now I know Fall is over for most of us even though the calendar says it doesn’t end until December 21st but I wanted to show the possibilities with this stamp set. Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset is good for Fall, Halloween, Christmas and many other occasions. This stampset can be found on page 20 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. It also coordinates with the Fireside Dies.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Guilded Autumn 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the top panel and adhered it to the card base. I also cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″ and used Mint Macaron Ink to create a gradient background. I spritzed some water on the panel, dried it and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the fireplace from Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of pattern paper from Guilded Autumn 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to add depth to the inside areas, fussycut it out (you can use the coordinating dies but I don’t have them yet) and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock and colored them using Stampin Blends and Copic markers. I used Pumpkin Pie Light & Dark and Granny Apple Green Light & Dark for the pumpkins; Cajun Craze Light & Dark, Granny Apple Green Light & Dark, Real Red Light & Dark for the leaves in the vase; Copic BG10 & BG11 for the vase; and E27 & E29 for the wood piles. I fussycut out all the images and adhered to the card. I popped up the pumpkins with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also stamped the lantern onto a piece of Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock with Tsukineko Stazon Jet Black Ink, cut out the window and adhered a piece of Vellum behind it.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful Autumn stampset with Early Espresso Ink onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock and diecut it to 1-9/16 x 2-1/2″ with the Layering Ovals Dies and a scallop oval from Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock, measuring 1-3/4 x 2-11/16″. I adhered the ovals and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering to the card.

I left the inside of the card blank.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Plaid Tidings 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the top panel. I cut another piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped the fireplace from Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the panel, and all the images onto another piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock. I also stamped several holly from the Christmas Means More Stampset. On this card I colored everything with Copic Markers. I used YG05 & G07 for the trees and holly leaves, R17 & R29 for the holly berries, E25 & E27 for the tree bases and reindeer, E29 for the tree trunks, E25, E27 & E29 for the wood logs, Y11, Y18 & Y23 for the lantern and clock) and N1, N2, N5 & ) for the fireplace. I fussycut the images and adhered them to the card panel. I popped up the lantern and clock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And adhered the panel to the card.
