I was AMAZED at how fun and easy it was to create these paper flower rosettes using the Stampin' UP! Stitched Label framelit dies!!!! They are cut in a spiral, wrapped around a skewer, secured with hot glue then sponged with some Gold Shimmer Paint!! SO BEAUTIFUL!
My talented stamping friend Cindee showed a group of us how to make these gorgeous rosettes and decorate this Pillow Box!
Below: Tips for making your own paper rosette flowers with the Stitched Label Framelit dies.
We used 2 shapes of label dies from the framelit set, in Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Mint Macaron cardstock for the rosettes. Per the graphic below, you cut them in a spiral with your paper snips, roll them around a skewer, then hot glue them. So easy!
To add the perfect touch of shimmer and glam to these paper flowers, just use your Sponge Dauber and Gold Shimmer paint and lightly sponge the tips of the flowers.. wow!! It dries almost instantly and is SO gorgeous!
Shimmer Paint available in my online store here.
ABOVE: After cutting and rolling up all of the rosettes, we hot glued them to a die cut leaf.. but not just a plain leaf… We die cut a Detailed Leaves leaf with Crumb Cake cardstock, then we embossed it with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder, then I sponged on both gold and copper shimmer paint!!!
BELOW: we added all those layers to the Pillow Box.
All 4 of the flower rosettes were added to the large die cut leaf, and we added a couple other die cut leaves from the Detailed Leaves framelit set, plus some Mint Macaron bakers twine tied in a bow.
Thank you Cindee for designing such a gorgeous project!!

I was making some Halloween Treats, and thought, why not make some Fall Treats to hand out during the months of October and November!?
I decorated a Stampin' UP! Pillow Box with a strip of Toil & Trouble designer paper (the pumpkin design), then die cut lots of leaves with the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies. The Pillow Boxes are super reasonable and perfect for treats. Only $5 for a pack of 10!! click here! The GREAT thing is… NO die cutting, folding, measuring or adhesive is required for the Pillow Boxes!! yay!
Secret #1 for making these leaves look REALLY AMAZING is some Shimmery Mist. I mixed Stampin' UP! Bright Copper Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer with some rubbing alcohol and sprayed the cardstock. You can spray it prior to die cutting, or after.. it doesn't matter.
CLICK HERE to see more info about making your shimmer mist spray!
The "enjoy" tag was created with the Takeout Treats bundle, pg 50 in the Holiday catalog.
Secret #2 for make some amazing fall leaf die cuts is… Spray Copper Shimmer mist onto cardstock (I used Crumb Cake), then emboss it with the Corrugated Embossing Folder for amazing texture, then die cut the leaves!! You can die cut them first, then emboss… either way works! Or you can even spray them last.. it really doesn't matter.
Below are some of the leaves I die cut, and tied with a cute little tag with the new 3/16" Braided Linen Thread. I punched a 1" circle out of cardstock and layered all the leaf pieces onto the circle, then added the circle to the box. The leaves are die cut in the corrugated paper as described above, and Grapefruit Grove cardstock, shimmered with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint mist.
I started with a piece of Toil & Trouble pumpkin design paper wrapped around the box.. you can use any size.. mine was about 4" x 8". I also added a piece of shimmered Powder Pink ruffled ribbon… when you add the copper shimmer paint to the ribbon, it gives it a fun fall look, and it's not so pink.
The Fall themed KitKat bars seemed like a great treat to put inside!

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.
- 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.
- Die cut Falling for Leaves framelits in your Big Shot
- Sponge with shimmer paint or add Wink of Stella for shimmer
- 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!!
Below: I layered the chicken wire piece onto a Very Vanilla panel that was embossed with embossing paste and the brick "Pattern Party Decorative Mask". You can find ALL of these paper crafting supplies in my online Stampin' Up! store, and also at the bottom of this post. My online store is open 24/7 for your shopping convenience 🙂

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.

I'm so excited to share this lovely Country Home card with you today! I used the Stampin' UP! Country Home stamp set, the Country Lane designer paper, the Tin Tile embossing folder, gold shimmer paint and some Stampin' Blends to create this card. You'll find most of those supplies on page 43 in your 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog and all of them at the bottom of this post – order directly in my online store anytime.
This entire suite is amazing, versatile, and so much fun for anyone who likes to color (like ME!). I used my Stampin' Blends markers to color the milk jug and the floral arrangement.
I added a 1" wide strip of Silver Foil paper embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing folder to the left side of the card, and then tied it all up with some "Tea Room" ribbon from page 201 in the annual catalog.
I used 2 prints from the Country Lane paper pack on my card.
ALL of these Stampin' Up! supplies are available NOW in my online store HERE or by clicking the product photo links at the bottom of this post. I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator and help you with your order so you can make this card, too!

Don't forget the Gold Shimmer paint and a sponge dauber.. I added some to the milk jug to help give it that little shimmer like real metal. Find 4 new Shimmer Paints on page 38 in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.
I made this card with Cindee at her house last month and below is my 2nd version, too. I used the other floral stamp in the set in the same milk jug, and colored it with some brighter colors.

You are in for a treat today! Look at this gorgeous fall pumpkin card featuring a watercolor background and the Pick a Pumpkin bundle from pg 51 of the 2017 Holiday catalog from Stampin' Up!
I created this card while stamping one day with Cindee.. she had the design all worked out and all the pumpkin pieces die cut!! We did a watercolor wash on the background with an Aquapainter and Fresh Fig ink on watercolor paper, then layered all the stamped and die cut pumpkins, leaves, swirls and branches. How amazing is this card!?
The Pick a Pumpkin bundle certainly goes well beyond Halloween and can be used for cards, treats, table favors, and Thanksgiving decor!

Check out the gorgeous fall color combo below!
2 details that really make the card outstanding are using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up various layers of the die cut pumpkins, and also speckling the card while the background was still a little wet by flicking the tip of the Fresh Fig marker onto the background.
Thank you for reading my blog post today! I hope you are inspired by Cindee's lovely design and fall color combo!
