Fall Card ideas with Brusho, Woodland Embossing folder & Falling Leaves

 

I love Fall Leaves, and decided to go with greens, blues and yellows, since that's the color of California Fall Leaves right now :)  I used Brusho Crystal Colour to give these Stampin' UP! Falling For Leaves great, vibrant hues of color!

There are So many products and ideas in these 2 cards.. someone should really count all the fun accessories I included in these 2 cards! :)

 Both fall card ideas feature Very Vanilla cardstock backgrounds, die cut leaves colored with Brusho, and Copper Shimmer Paint.  I also used Tranquil Tide cardstock because I thought it went really well with the amazing leaf colors!

 I combined the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies with the Country Home stamp set.. kind of made my own "bundle" for these cards :)   The Falling for Leaves bundle (below) is also amazing, and you can see one of my cards with that bundle here.

Falling for Leaves bundle available online here.

 Directions:

  1. Shake Brusho crystal colour onto watercolor paper, and spray with either water, rubbing alcohol or spray starch (I used spray starch on this piece). Let dry.
  2. Die cut Falling for Leaves framelits in your Big Shot
  3. Sponge with shimmer paint or add Wink of Stella for shimmer
  4. Because I was using watercolor paper the little pieces in the leaf dies did not readily fall out.. I decided to leave them in.. I liked that look!

For the background of this fall card, I embossed the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Woodland Embossing Folder then sponged Copper Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion.  It's really pretty in person!!

To compliment the copper shimmer, I also sponged it around the die cut Stitched Shape circle, and added a copper leaf trinket to the card... PLUS, I sued the Tea Room copper edged ribbon... wow!!

The Happy Harvest Blessing greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

For the 2nd fall card idea, I used a piece of the new chicken wire from pg 43 in the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, and sponged it with Copper Shimmer paint.. ok, seriously!? This is so cool!!

The finishing touch on this card was a piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, pg 43 in the Holiday catalog.  I realized I could have also used Copper trim, but this was also a very pretty choice.   The thankful stamped greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

Tin Tile Embossing folder Christmas Card idea

 My best guess is that this amazing Tin Tile embossing folder will be the hit of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog accessories!!  You can find it on page 43 in your catalog, or HERE in my online store.  For this Christmas card idea, I used it with the Silver Foil paper for the background, and also used the Peaceful Noel stamp set and Sprig punch (available as a money-saving bundle!), pg 29, or HERE online.

After punching the sprigs out of Garden Green cardstock, I sponged on some Champagne Mist Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber.. that's another new product, found on page 38 in the Holiday catalog or HERE online.

The card is all tied up with the new Merry Merlot / Copper reversible ribbon.. how gorgeous!!  We also used a piece of the Dashing Along designer paper on the card in the background.. this is not for sale but is available as your gift with a $250 workshop, party or order.  See THIS customer newsletter for all the info.

Seasonal Wreath Christmas Card with Shimmer Paint

 

Do you have a favorite Embossing Folder in the current Stampin' Up! catalog?  Find them all on pages 222-223 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, or HERE online.   I used 2 embossing folders on my Christmas card today: Seasonal Wreath (#146833) and Striped Scallops (#147188).

Seasonal Wreath embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

I embossed the wreath on a piece of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then used Sponge Daubers to add 3 colors of ink (Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call me Clover).  I used my paper snips to cut out the wreath, and then curved it to give it dimension. After cutting it out I sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer paint all over it and added Santa's Workshop red enamel dots!!

This card was inspired by Twila Davis.

The card base is Real Red cardstock (11"x4-1/4" folded in 1/2), and the white panel on top is embossed with the Striped Scallops embossing folder. 

Here are a few visuals and tips for you when sponging, creating and assembling this card:

 I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (new in the 2018 Holiday catalog, pg 33) onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I used the Layering circles framelit dies to die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to put behind the greeting.  Add the greeting to your card, then place the wreath over it.

The amazingly clear/glossy look of these Santa's Workshop enamel shapes are just gorgeous.. I loved adding them as the "berries" to this wreath!
