Pleasant Pheasants – Fabulous for Fall!

Create a fall Thanksgiving card using Stampin Up Pleasant Pheasants - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

Today’s Pleasant Pheasants card is fabulous for fall and Thanksgiving cards.  Change the sentiment and it’s a versatile, masculine card, too. 

Pleasant Pheasants Stamp Set

The bold, Night of Navy brad on the sentiment reminds me of when I first started stamping in 2005 and brads were a key embellishment on my projects.  Now there are so many choices but a brad always makes a statement!


Create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base with Night of Navy card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.

Use the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Stampin’ Up! Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder to “crimp” a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Adhere to card base using Snail Adhesive.  TIP:  Run the dynamic embossing folder back and forth through the Big Shot for a deeper impression.

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp the pheasants from Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a 3 1/2 x 3 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Layer and adhere on a 3 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Night of Navy card stock. 

Crop Night of Navy card stock twice with the Stampin’ Up! Sprig Punch and adhere with Snail Adhesive to the right side of the pheasant layer.  Adhere ALL with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base.

Using the Stamparatus, stamp Happy Thanksgiving from Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a 2 5/8 x 5/8 piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  I used the Tailored Tag Punch to crop the flagged end on the right side.

Add a Night of Navy Brad (Stampin’ Up! Basic Brads) to the left side and adhere sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies) and a pine cone pattern from All is Bright Designer Series Paper to create a liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.

    Great card, Mary. Lot’s of interest because of the texture and colors. The sprigs really extend the scene. You are so correct that this is a perfect Pheasant set for a masculine card. TFS.
