Stampin' Up! Fall Fun

Welcome everyone! I am so excited to share this fun post today because it takes two things I love and brings them together.  Fall and stamping!!!

The theme for today's post is fall fun. Fall happens to be my favorite season. While I am a beach lover and definitely a beach girl, I am an October baby so there is no doubting my love for pumpkins, fall colors, and fall bucket lists. For my first project I did a card with a technique known as the Eclipse Affect.
I used a stamp set from our annual catalog called Vintage Leaves. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set. This stamp set is truly the perfect fall set. I randomly stamped different color leaves all around whisper white cardstock using some fun fall ink pads: Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Old olive, Fresh Fig, and Pumpkin Pie. Once this was done I used my big shot to die cut the word FALL out using the Large Letter Framelits.

After this step was done I used dimensional dots and added this mat to Fresh Fig cardstock. Here you can see a couple of images of the final card.
P.S. Don't forget to stamp your envelope! ;-)

I also added some fun Burlap Ribbon and a fussy cut out pumpkin from Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper from our amazing Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog.

While this card is adorable and full of fall foliage, I thought it would be nice to have a little gift to give with it. I opted to create a cute little wood crate with 3x3 cards and envelopes for the perfect gift.
With this project, I used sponge daubers to color up a piece of whisper white cardstock with a variety of fall ink pads again. Once blended, I took a leaf from an amazing and versatile stamp set called Colorful Seasons. This stamp set also comes as a bundle and trust me you will want it!!! Plus ordering this set as a bundle saves you 10%!!!
Once I stamped the leaves in Basic Black to really make them pop, I cut the squares into 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 pieces and multicolored cardstock from our new In-Colors in 3x3 size cards.
I also used the small leaf in Fresh Fig ink to stamp the little 3x3 envelopes for an added touch.
After that is all set, I took a piece of copper foil sheet and die cut some fun leaves to add to each card. Using Multipurpose glue, I adhered the leaves to the cards and then used fast fuse to adhere the card to the base. One step I forgot to photograph was die cutting out the mini crate to make the adorable crate box. Don't worry I will have another project showing another crate project in the near future. 
Tip: When using the multipurpose glue press down on a silicone mat to avoid excess glue sticking to another card. The excess stays on the silicone craft sheet and your cards dry perfectly.
Here is the final result....

I hope you have enjoyed the fall inspiration today and you will come back soon for more creative fun. Don't forget to sign up for my newsletter and new blog posts.
