Gently Falling Collage Acorn Card

I’m still using that One Sheet Wonder image sheet – here’s one with embossed acorns made from the Autumn Accents die and the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The wood button give the card a more earthy, rustic feel.  The phrase is from Six-Sided Sampler

Gently Falling Island Indigo and Eggplant Thanksgiving Card

Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant…what a rich color combination!  That coordinate so well with the Very Vanilla and gold embossing accents.  Love those leaves embossed in gold.  Here is the card I created with those “ingredients”:

Gently Falling Thinking of You Collage Card

I’m at it again with that One Sheet Wonder image sheet – quick and simple thinking of you card. A little sparkle from the gold glimmer paper.  The phrase is from Wetlands (I just love the font on those phrases).

World Card-Making Day – Gently Falling Oak Leaf Card

Today is World Card-Making Day!   What cards do you need to make?  I can always use “Thinking of You” cards – they serve so many purposes!

Love this color combination for fall – Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Gold.  So very elegant.  The leaf was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Sending cards with lots of embellishments can be tricky with the postal service.  So here’s a quick tip – use cardstock circles instead of brads.  They add interest, layers, but not a lot of bulk.  This way the card can be easily mailed.

Cherry Cobbler Embossed Leaf on a Paint Chip

Didn’t that title get you excited?  I love the names Stampin’ Up! combines with our products.  Remember my post a while ago about my craft hoarding?  Well, paint chips are my weakness.  I adore them – and the names given to the paints make me swoon too!  Here is a rich color combination (Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, and Naturals Ivory) using my favorite stamp sets Gently Falling and Wetlands (phrase).  That Cherry Cobbler embossing powder makes that leaf pop off the paint chip!  Those wood buttons are perfect for this card too!

Gently Falling Embossed Acorn Thank You Card

Last year (yes, you read that right LAST YEAR), I created a One Sheet Wonder image sheet for a swap using Gently Falling.  That set is PERFECT to use for One Sheet Wonders!  I have created several cards from that one image sheet.  Trust me, you’ll be seeing more of these in upcoming posts!

I love that little acorn in the stamp set – I paired it with the Autumn Accents die acorn (which was embossed here) for this card.   The phrase is from the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set.

Gently Falling Two-Step Thank You Card

Two-step stamping has been around forever (thanks to always fabulous Stampin’ Up! stamp sets), but it is not forefront and center these days.  I’m not sure why – as it is a perfect technique when you don’t want to take the time to color in your fine-lined stamp images.

Here’s a pretty but simple two-step stamped card with Gently Falling.  I added some distressing to the embossed folder by taking my inkpad and smooshing over the top of the embossed card stock.

Color combination is Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango, and Early Espresso…love it!
