Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. Another month flying by.

I have a fall card for you today. I’m working my way to the holiday cards. I just haven’t been able to get into making them yet with how hot it’s been. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set and In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge ‘LEAF it to chance…’

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste DSP to an Early Espresso panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaf and splotch images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Inks randomly around. I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso Ink towards the bottom of the panel. I embossed the panel using my Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the panel to the card front on an angle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the Very Vanilla panel using my Paper Snips to be even with the card front.

I wrapped a length of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the small leaf dies from the Intricate Leaves Dies, from scraps of Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I adhered the leaves under the bow using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the leaf and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the top of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
