How to Create a Fall Seasonal Frame

Stampin’ Up! products lend themselves perfectly to card making, memory keeping projects, treat packages, and even home decor. I created this fall seasonal frame to use as a decoration in my home.

(See this additional post featuring holiday frames. Do you prefer the traditional or whimsical?)

Here are some of the details about this fall-themed frame. Purchased at Ikea, the frame holds a 5 x 7 insert.

  • The bottom layer of Mango Melody card stock measures 5 x 7.
  • Next layer of Basic Black card stock measures 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches.
  • The patterned paper — Plaid Tidings — measures 4 x 6. (Note: This 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is 15 percent off through October 31, 2020.)
  • Leaves cut with die from Gathered Leaves Dies in coordinating colors of (left to right): Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Mango Melody, and Cajun Craze.
  • Letters die cut in Basic Black card stock with Playful Alphabet Dies.
  • Ribbon is a 7-inch piece of Black Glittered Organdy.
  • Embellishments are the Holiday Rhinestones.

Think about all of the different holidays where you could create a seasonal frame!

Stampin’ Friends Fall Card

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Fall Card Blog Hop for October 2020 A group of talented stampers is sharing cards and projects revolving around a thankfulness theme.

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.

Stampin' Friends Fall Card

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.

Come to Gather Thank You

Hello Stampers!

I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.

I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.

Thanks for stopping by today!
