Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Fall Foliage Miss You Card

I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set + Beautiful Trees Dies) from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to make this Fall foliage card. I love trees in any season and I love the colors of Fall. As a Southerner my Falls were brief…going quickly to dry brown, but I moved to the Northeast in my 20s and Oh!My! a whole month of beautiful color! I even tried to send preserved Fall leaves home to my parents to share the beauty. I hope you enjoy the card I’m sharing with you tonight!

The Paper Cuts

  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 4-1/4″x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and a tree trunk die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies.
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4-7/8″ (front layer) and 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies diecut, Tasteful Labels die cut, and 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside panel)

The Creating

I began by stamping the triple leaf image from the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Bumblebee Inks onto the Stitched Rectangle die cut to fill in the tree top and the ground cover. I occasionally placed the tree die cut on the rectangle to gage placement. I repeated the leaves on the bottom edge of the envelope and inside panel. I then used a Blending Brush to apply Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie Ink to these areas.

In Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the tree base from Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set (on the Stitched Rectangle) and the sentiment from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set (onto the Tasteful Labels die cut).

To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the panels and leaves. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season Autumn Card Sneak Peek

    I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle from the upcoming August 3, 2021-Jan 3, 2022 Mini Catalog to make this Fall card. The bundle includes the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Swirls Dies. There is also a sneak peek of the sparkly Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon. So pretty! And, the plaid Peaceful Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in the background is free from Stampin’ Up! as of Aug 3 with a $50 order as part of Sale-a-bration!

    The design for this card was inspired by the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge SSC262 GETTING SKETCHY.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Early Expresso Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and the leafy wreath die cut from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
    • Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Bumblebee Cardstock: two leaves die cuts from Seasonal Swirls Dies in each color (the die cuts 2 leaves at a time so you will have 4 leaves in each color).
    • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: two leaves die cuts and 3 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel).
    • Sahara Sand Cardstock: 2″ x 1″ (stamping & cutting three pinecones)
    • Beauty of the Earth 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (wood pattern): largest Stitched Rectangle die cut.
    • Peaceful Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (plaid pattern): two 1 3/4″ x 3 3/8″ Stitched Rectangle die cuts (front panels) and a 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″
    • Basic White Cardstock: label from Tasteful Label Dies and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I stamped three pinecones from Sparkle of the Season Stamp Set in Early Expresso Ink onto the Sahara Sand Cardstock (which coordinates with the Peaceful Prints DSP) and die cut them with the coordinating die. I stamped the “Grateful” sentiment on the Tasteful Labels die cut in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I also stamped the inside sentiment from A Wish for Everything Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler Ink.

    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers and die cuts to the card base. For the greeting on the card front, I applied Tear & Tape Adhesive to the back of 2 1/2″ of Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon and to the back of the stamped label. I added three Gold Metallic Pearls to embellish the card front. I adhered a strip of the DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips for a coordinating set.
