Autumn Accents

It’s really beginning to feel like fall here with the latest cold front that has rolled in – now I’m just waiting for the first frost here in the North Georgia Mountains so my allergies will stop being such a pain. I definitely have a love hate relationship with fall, if you know what I mean.

Today’s cards are three more swaps that I’ve received, all of them use colors that make you think of autumn. Isn’t it cool how colors are so connected to memories and feelings of times and events?

I really like the White Vellum card stock (101856) and the Autumn Accents Die (127812) that was used to create the leaves on this first card. The vellum has been sponged and our scoring tool was used to create the veining. Cool right?

Anna created this second card using just our Lullaby Designer Series Paper (133695) along with the Petite Pairs stamp set (128706/122497).

Can you see all the texture that this card has? Created simply by using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140). And of course the choice of Designer Series Paper also add to the feel of the texture.

This last card was from Lorraine and uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set (135047) and Wonderful Wreath Framelits (135851). I really like the way she turned a simple square shape onto it’s side to give it a whole different look. How about you?

Fall Fun with the Chalkboard Banner Kit

Have you ever tried one of our Simply Created Kits? Well they’re great when you don’t have a lot of time or just want to create without any prep time and cutting since pretty much everything comes in the kit that you need, except scissors and adhesive.

They are also easy to step up simply by adding things that you already have. And our kits coordinate with all kinds of different products.

Today I’m going to share with you the fall banner I made that I made for my Holiday Catalog Premiere Party on Sunday with the Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit (133795). The banner was quick and easy to put together and looks great I think.

FALL Holiday Catalog Premiere Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit

Everyone will think that you spent a lot of time creating. But you know that you didn’t have to!

In addition to the kit I used my Autumn Accents Die (127812) to create some leaves and acorns for the pennants in between my letters.


I’ve made a quick video to show you how I did the leaves and acorns.

After I attached the leaves to the pennants I added some of our NEW Autumn Wooden Elements (135846) and a little bit of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (131206) that I tied in a knot to the chalk board pennants with a Glue Dot. I’m really loving these little wooden elements – they are just too cute and add just the right pop of color and texture.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a favorite fall recipe with you.

Don’t you love fall and the change of seasons? It’s Wonderfall, right? Peak leaf watching season is just around the corner for us in this neck of the woods and that gets me thinking about leaf stamp sets. I love the variety of sets that Stampin’ Up! has to offer and the NEW Wonderfall stamp set in the Holiday Catalog doesn’t disappoint. The Wonderfall stamp set has such great patterns and textures and that makes it a lot of fun to stamp with.

Here is a card that one of my TEAM members, Janie gave me at last month’s TEAM meeting. I love the colors she chose. The card just makes me smile when I see it.

Fall is in the air and it’s been a bit nippy here in the mornings. The leaves on my big oak tree in the yard are even beginning to turn which made me think of this wonderful swap using the Autumn Accents Die.
