Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 31: A Simple Fall Wishing You Well Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the next episode of Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping where we will be making a Fall themed Wishing You Well Card.  As you know if you've watched any of my Saturday Simple Stamping Videos these are cards designed with the beginner crafter in mind.  They don't use a lot of supplies and are mainly just stamps ink and paper.  If you are new to my blog welcome.  In this weeks episode I am going to show you how to create a super easy and quick Fall themed Wishing you well card.  Here's a look at the card we will be making today.

My post today is part of my little mini series 12 Days of Fall.  Where I have 12 Fall themed projects coming at you back to back.  

Today, we will be using the Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (#150589) from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog; which is probably one of my favorite sets in the catalog because of this large leaf stamp.  You can do so much with it.  I can not wait to just stamp it and color it, but that's for another project right!  You can order the Gather Together Stamp set as part of a Cost Saving Bundle which comes with matching dies but we are not using the dies today since this card is all about #simplestamping.  But if you want to order the Cost Saving Bundle this is the code you will want Gather Together Bundle #153036; I am all up on saving an extra 10% when I can so it's worth mentioning the bundle if your like me.
With the Gather Together Stamp Set, whether or not you can gather together with those who are close to your heart, you can share some gratitude and love with them using the Gather Together Stamp Set. Loved ones near and far will feel your love and appreciation when they receive a handstamped card from you.  

My card base was made with a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock (#119686) cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2.  Remember that your card bases are usually a half of sheet of cardstock cut in half.  Here, I created a top folding card which is why it's cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  I will usually score the cardstock in half first then cut it.  This just makes it easier when you go to cut your card base; you then don't have to go back and score two card bases because they are already done by doing it this way.  And, you just score it in the middle one way or the other; either at 5 1/2 (for a top folding card) or at 4 1/4 (for a side folding card).  
Next, I cut a two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock (#100730) one at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 and one at 4 x 5 1/4 (for the inside).  I cut my layering piece from Crushed Curry Cardstock (#131199) at 3 3/4 x 4 3/4.  When you watch the video you will notice that I cut the Whisper White and Crushed Curry Cardstocks at one measurement then went back and cut them down to the measurements above.  I needed them to be just a little smaller.  I am also using two pieces of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (#150454).  One is 1" x 4" and the other is just a 1/2" x 4".  I actually cut these from the same larger piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper).  This is a great thing to do with the designer series paper from Stampin' Up!.  Because, one I don't have to worry about them matching my project: Since we have such great color combination it all works together.  And secondly I know that both pieces will go together because they are from the same pack and sheet.  
 On the 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock I started out by stamping the large leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink (#147087) in three different places.  You want to create a visual triangle when you do this type of stamping.  Next I added in the same leaf with Pumpkin Pie Ink (#147086) starting to fill in other areas on the focal image.  To finish off the focal image I then added some Cajun Craze Ink (#147085) in any areas that was left open.  This filled in the rest of the white space n the card front and finished my focal image.  To finish off the card I added the stamped focal image onto the piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, and then layered that on to my card base.  I then took the two pieces of the designer series paper and on the larger one I stamped my sentiment in the middle in Cajun Craze ink.  After stamping the sentiment I cut the two ends into fish tail banners.  I added that to the front of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) as you all know that's my go to adhesive.  Once I had the first piece of designer series paper with the sentiment attached to the card front, I added the smaller piece cut with the same fish tail banner.
To finish the card I added the larger piece of Whisper White that I had stamped the large leaf at the bottom left and the top right in Cajun Craze to the inside.  This helps to tie everything together and adds a place for my personal message.
