Hello Fall! Well, at least it's TRYING to be fall here in California… a few leaves have fallen… 🙂
I had fun coloring with my Stampin' Blends and the Feathers & Frost stamp set, turning the "wreath" into a fall image and adding the little birdies.
I stamped the leaf wreath with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock die cut with the Layering Square framelits, then colored it with my fall tone Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. The scalloped square is layered onto Calpyso Coral cardstock, then Whisper White, then Mossy Meadow and finally a Crumb Cake folded card base.
I decided to add several Gold Metallic Pearls to the card just to give it a little bling 🙂
I colored 4 gold pearls with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends markers to add to the flower center.
The flower and leaves are also in the Feathers & Frost stamp set (pg 30 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, or HERE online). The Hello stamp is from the Calligraphy Essentials set, stamped in Memento black ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend marker.
Happy Fall! I hope you enjoyed this inspiration for your handmade fall cards!
Shimmery leaves – perfect for a fall card! I spritzed Stampin' Up! cardstock with Gold and Champagne Mist shimmer paint and then die cut all of these beautiful Detailed Leaves thinlits for my fall note card!
The leaves are die cut with Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry cardstock (spritzed with Shimmer Paint), and the leaves from the Falling For Leaves stamp set are stamped in the background over the printed watercolor wash.

The card background is a preprinted watercolor wash note card from the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards/envelopes package. I love them!! They aer so perfect when you don't want to take the extra time to watercolor the card front!! Find them on pg 193 in your Annual catalog, or HERE in my online Stampin UP! Store.
The greeting, from the Falling for Leaves stamp set (pg 45 in the 2018 Holiday catalog) is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Stitched Label Framelits pack.
I finished off the card with a little White/Silver Baker's Twine bow and several Silver Metallic Pearls!
I took this project to a Luv 2 Stamp Group stamping day event over the weekend and I think everyone enjoyed creating this card!!

Coloring is therapy to me.. I love to color. So I love the outline image stamps from Stampin' Up! and I tried out my Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils on my Country Home stamp set and love the results!! I used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the colors on the Whisper White cardstock.
In addition to having fun coloring on this card, I also love the background!! I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder found on page 43 in the 2018 Holiday catalog (same page as the Country Home stamp set, and the beautiful Country Lane designer paper).
After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile Embossing folder, I used a sponge dauber to add a little Gray Granite and Soft Suede ink to the raised parts.. just here and there to give it a bit of a weathered look.
After coloring the greenery/flowers and the can with the Watercolor Pencils and blending with a Blender Pen, I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the can.. I love it!

The card base is a standard size Thick Whisper White folded card, and the tin tile embossed piece is 4" x 5-1/2". I used a strip of Country Lane designer paper peeking out the right side, and some 3/16" braided trim on the left side of the card. The little die cut shape was a limited time product a couple months ago and is retired, but you could easily use a die cut oval.

What a lovely blessing! My team member Kurstan gave this beautiful mason jar to me and I just love the Stampin' UP! Falling For Leaves die cuts and all the beautiful detail she put in to this gift!!
This color combination is stunning as well, and beautifully accented with copper glitter paper!! These products are available in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog. I believe you can find the jar at your local craft supply store. I love the 3/16" braided linen trim as well!

I found an unlikely pairing… I had some pretty patterned Tea Room designer paper from Stampin’ UP! on my desk, and these pretty pre-printed Delightfully Detailed card bases, and I paired them together for some really pretty note cards!!
I cut the strip of Tea Room paper to about 2″ x 5-1/2″ and put it on top of the printed Delightfully Detailed note card, then added die cut leaves from the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies and a greeting stamped from the Falling for Leaves stamp set. Hey.. did you know you can save 10% by buying the stamp set and leaves dies as a bundle! 🙂 CLICK HERE.
My color palette is: Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss.
I placed a Pearlized Doily behind each stitched shape circle die cut to bring a bit of attention to the greeting.
I made a few dozen of these for Customer Thank You cards a couple weeks ago. I hope the recipients enjoyed them!

I LOVE the Wishing you Well stamp set in the 2018 Stampin UP! Holiday catalog! Find it on page 35, or HERE online.
I hope YOU love the fall themed thank you cards I came up with using this stamp set!
As you can see above, I played with a few different colors, just mixing and matching these colors:
Crushed Curry, Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate.
I love this Hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Warm Hearted (pictured above at left), (pg 54 in the 2018 Holiday catalog). I used the THANKS stamp from this set in my card design. You can purchase this set (or any hostess set) when your order or party total is over $150. (Use Stampin' Rewards, a.k.a. hostess dollars, to purchase hostess sets or any product from the catalog). I stamped it with Crushed Curry ink onto the patterned paper from the Country Lane designer series paper pack (pg 43 Holiday catalog, #147804).
I also used 2 other patterns from this paper pack on my card. The striped pattern behind the oval, and the polka dot strip, are both from the Country Lane paper pack.
Country Lane designer paper #147804 available online here
I die cut Very Vanilla stitched shape ovals, and stamped the "wheat" sprigs in Crushed Curry, and the flowers in Blackberry Bliss. I also stamped the bow in Blackberry Bliss. I attached the oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped Oval die cut and added that to the card.
- Base Card: 4-1/4" x 9", score at 5-1/2"
- Striped Country Lane paper: 3"x4"
- Crushed Curry Country Lane paper: 4" x 1-1/2"
- Polka dot Country Lane paper: 4" x 1/2"
- Very Vanilla (inside) 4" x 5-1/4"
So then.. the secret weapon on this card.. I spritzed the finished card with some Gold Shimmer Paint mixed into a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.. it's SO PRETTY in person!! Watch the VIDEO HERE to see how to make your own shimmer mist!!
I also decided to try a horizontal version, and I actually used a sympathy sentiment from the Wishing You Well set. I added gold metallic pearls to this card. I think it turned out lovely.
Do you have a favorite version of my card idea?
