I cannot get enough of the stitched look in papercrafting. The detail just seems to dress up every image. This fall card showcases some of our new embellishments.
I die-cut the letters FALL using the new Playful Alphabet dies and hung them from one of the gold hoops to create a little banner. Then I added a metal acorn trinket to the linen thread bow. Those acorn trinkets are stinkin’ adorable. And they will coordinate with all your fall projects. You NEED them!
Take a closer look at the Mint Macaron strip on the card. I used that stitched line die that comes in that set (Stitched Leaves Dies). It almost looks like patterned paper. So cool. I did use a small piece of striped DSP from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack to die-cut one of the leaves.
It has quite a bit of dimension on it, so if you mail this you I would suggest that you add some padding by way of an extra piece of cardstock or even a layer of tissue paper to protect the embellishments…and it will be extra postage as well. Thankfully, this one isn’t going in the mail:)
I also had a gift bag that needed a tag today, so I whipped up this super simple tag with some of the leftover leaves on my desk. I added a little bit shimmer with our new Elegant Faceted Gems. I hope you like it.

Are you thinking about it?
Do you have a few friends that like to papercraft as well? When I purchased my starter kit, I had been getting together with friends to make cards. Just a girls night here and there…or at a weekend retreat…I envisioned that I would sign up and then they could get all their supplies from me. In turn, I would make a little bit of money.
So that’s what I did. And then THEY told people that they knew to order from me. And so it began. Friends help friends along the journey. You don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. If you love Stampin’ Up! product, you have nothing to lose and so much to gain. I treasure the friendships that have come out of my Stampin’ Up! journey. Many of them will be life-long.
