Stampin’ Friends Fall Card Sample
What do you love most about fall? The cooler temperatures? The taste and smell of pumpkin spice? The brilliant fall colors and the changing of the seasons?
For me, it’s the fall foliage. That’s what I miss most about living in the Midwest. You can see some color change here in Arizona, but not as much as the brilliant maples of Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Nebraska. (I won’t, however, miss the snow when it falls in the Midwest!)
Today’s card and 3D treat package reflect some of that beautiful fall color.
This card uses:
- A Blackberry Bliss card stock base
- Gold Foil layer measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Very Vanilla layer measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″ embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder
- Gold Foil cut with largest scallop circle from Layering Circles Dies
- Blackberry Bliss — largest stitched circle from Stitched Shapes Dies
- Leaf from Gathered Leaves Dies cut out of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (Guess what? The Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 paper is on sale–15 percent off through October 31, 2020!)
- Two leaves cut in Mango Melody and Cajun Craze card stock
- Sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and punched with Classic Label Punch
- Bow created with Gold Cord (part of the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack)
And, I made a matching treat box with one of Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, using many of the same ingredients as the card above. Lots of fun treats fit in this gorgeous box.
Thanks for stopping by today! lease let me know if you have questions about this card or other paper crafting techniques. If you’re not already working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to help! Enjoy!

I love Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Indigo Product Medley. Find it on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The Night of Navy and Midnight Muse colors call to me! I’ve used the medley in a ton of card projects. Click on the links below to look at past posts, samples, and projects.

After all of that creating, I have a lot of scraps and small pieces. The technique I show today isn’t new. I resurrected it for this beautiful designer series paper and its scraps!
- Using Stampin’ Up!’s 1 1/2-inch circle punch, punch a variety of different designs from both sides of the patterned paper
- Arrange the circles onto a a piece of Very Vanilla card stock or Midnight Muse card stock.
- Glue the circles down with multipurpose glue.It’s OK if some of them go off the edge of the base.
- Let it dry.
- Run the whole piece through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with your choice of embossing folders. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Tin Tile and Dainty Diamonds.
- Trim the edges if any of the circles overlap.
- Layer onto a coordinating card stock and then a card base.
- Add a sentiment of your choice.
- You could dress up with ribbon or other embellishments.

Think of all of the possibilities with all of Stampin’ Up!’s different designer series papers. I’m sure you have a pile of scraps that would worth for this.

Featuring a Gilded Autumn thank you card with video.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with all of the products in Stampin’ Up!’s Gilded Autumn Suite. I’m especially in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Talk about gorgeous! Talk about hoarding material! The metallic highlights in select sheets make this 12 x 12 paper shine.
Today’s card features just one of the lovely sheets of this Designer Series Paper. Notice that the patterned paper covers the entire front of the card. Be sure to watch the video below for a tip on getting this panel on straight. Normally, I’ll put layers on the card front; they’re easier to line up and get straight. But this quick tip makes it so easy!
