Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for Fun Fold Friday.

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and I believe Sunday too.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the SAB Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Sahara Sand card base at 5 1/2″ & 2 3/4″ to make a Z-Fold card. I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Peaceful Prints DSP to the smaller panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I put torn Post-It Notes on the top and bottom of the panel to leave a framed area. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink multiple times. Using my Blending Brushes I added some Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Ink to the stamped area until I got the color that I wanted. I stamped the small leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink randomly around. I removed the sticky notes frame and stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the top of the panel in Old Olive Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

I cut 2 leaves from a panel of Gold & Rose Gold 6 X 6 Metallic Specialty Paper using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the leaves to the stamped panel using Glue Dots. I tied a triple bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the 2 corners. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink around the larger leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it’s lined up behind the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Inks on the envelope front along with the splotch image in Crushed Curry. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Prints 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. After taking a summer break, we’re back. Our 1st inspiration photo is Colorful Fall. Here is my card that I was inspired by the photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I was inspired by the beautiful colors of the leaves for my clean and layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us for our challenge #159. How are you inspired by this photo.

I started by randomly stamping the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Inks on a Basic White panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink randomly on the panel.

I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Intricate Leaves Dies I cut 1 branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and 3 leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in soft Succulent Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.

I arranges the branch and leaves on the sentiment die cut and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small knot using the 3/8″ Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Fresh Freesia Ink around the top of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I stamped the leaves and splotch images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Inks on the envelope front and flap.

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