Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

My favorite color is fall…
The oranges, yellows, and even purples.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

I decided to celebrate the beautiful fall colors with a thank you card for this month’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop theme – Giving Thanks.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

These beautiful leaves come from the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle!

I used Merry Merlot, Cinnamon Cider, and Bumblebee to highlight the fall leaves.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

Last week I used the Intricate Leaves Dies to make a cut that cut out a leaf.

Normally you would use the leaf as a focal point in a card, but for that card I used the cut out piece as a frame.
You can check out that card here.

I then took the cut out leaf and made today’s card as part of last week’s Facebook live video.

What I love about this card is the stamped background that was created using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Making my out Designer paper is something I really love to do!!

Normally, at this point in my blog post I’d be telling you to join me tonight for another live tutorial.

However, if you caught my YouTube live yesterday you’ll know that there’s something wrong with the sound on my phone. Gotta love technology.

Anyways, so unfortunately my live tonight is canceled.

Is it bad that I’m kind of hoping I get a new phone out of this?!

After all it is a NEED for my business. 😉

Product List

Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

There’s nothing like new product.

The only hard part is deciding what to use first. But leaves and pumpkins are my favorite so the new Gorgeous Leaves Bundle was one of the first I pulled out.

It will be available beginning Aug 3rd when the 2021 July-Dec Mini Catalog goes live!

Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Gorgeous Leaves Card

I thought it was perfect for this week’s “Outdoors” theme. The card starts off with Early Espresso cardstock, on which I adhered an Early Espresso pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

May be an image of outdoors, tree and text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop July 15 Theme Challenge Outdoors Outdo'

Next I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a panel from Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the wood grain from the Gorgeous Leaves on it in Early Espresso ink, stamping off first.

Next I used the Intricate Leaves Dies and cut out three leaves from the Brushed Metallic Cardstock. At the bottom I wound around some Gold Fine Art Ribbon.

Around the leaves I adhered a couple of Gold Dots from the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, which will also be available beginning Aug 3rd.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the same Stitched Rectangles Dies.
