Spectacular Stampin’ Up! Autumn Card using Falling for Leaves and Colorful Seasons stamp sets

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am have been busy in my craft room coming up with more ideas to share with you!  Today’s card is a wonderful fall themed thank you card.  I always seem to be low on thank you cards.  I guess that means I am sending out plenty!

This card reminds me a bit of a double ended cornucopia!   To make this started by stamping and cutting out the leaves.  I used the Falling for Leaves Stamp set and colorful Seasons stamp set.  The dies used are the Detailed Leaves Thinlits and Seasonal Layers Thinlits. The card stock colors used are Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand and Copper Foil.  The stamped leaves on the Sahara Sand paper are part of the Falling for Leaves set. I also added in some little dots that came from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I went over part of those leaves with some Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle!  The copper leaves that have been die cut were also embossed with my Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. Always remember when both die cut and emboss something to do the die cut first!  This way you don’t smooth out the embossing you just did.  🙂  The Thankful sentiment is part of the Falling for Leaves stamp set and was stamped in blackberry ink.  The circle is part of the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  To finish things off I wrapped some Copper Metallic Thread around my circle and added some Gold Metallic Pearls.  Even though I used more copper the gold pearls are so close you can’t tell the difference!

Now that we have officially entered Autumn in the USA I am ready to make even more fall and Halloween themed cards.  How about you? Leave me a comment letting me know what current project your working on.  🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you are getting to enjoy fun with family and full bellies on this Thanksgiving Holiday! I am about to start cooking, but I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving a share a pretty fall card with you.

I needed a fall themed birthday card and the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set is the perfect set to make any type of fall themed card.  I also used the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  I added in the Wood Textures Designer Series paper and cut it out with a die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  The pumpkins and Leaves were stamped in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight.  All of these colors are found in the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper. The pumpkins and leaves were cut out with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  I chose to use a Pear Pizzazz background rather than the Lemon Lime Twist color to soften the appearance of the card.  The base of the card is Cajun Craze Card stock.

I hope you are having a fabulous time on this holiday and finding ways to be thankful for what you have.
