I love Fall Leaves, and decided to go with greens, blues and yellows, since that's the color of California Fall Leaves right now :) I used Brusho Crystal Colour to give these Stampin' UP! Falling For Leaves great, vibrant hues of color!
There are So many products and ideas in these 2 cards.. someone should really count all the fun accessories I included in these 2 cards! :)
Both fall card ideas feature Very Vanilla cardstock backgrounds, die cut leaves colored with Brusho, and Copper Shimmer Paint. I also used Tranquil Tide cardstock because I thought it went really well with the amazing leaf colors!
I combined the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies with the Country Home stamp set.. kind of made my own "bundle" for these cards :) The Falling for Leaves bundle (below) is also amazing, and you can see one of my cards with that bundle here.
Falling for Leaves bundle available online here.
- Shake Brusho crystal colour onto watercolor paper, and spray with either water, rubbing alcohol or spray starch (I used spray starch on this piece). Let dry.
- Die cut Falling for Leaves framelits in your Big Shot
- Sponge with shimmer paint or add Wink of Stella for shimmer
- Because I was using watercolor paper the little pieces in the leaf dies did not readily fall out.. I decided to leave them in.. I liked that look!
For the background of this fall card, I embossed the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Woodland Embossing Folder then sponged Copper Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion. It's really pretty in person!!
To compliment the copper shimmer, I also sponged it around the die cut Stitched Shape circle, and added a copper leaf trinket to the card... PLUS, I sued the Tea Room copper edged ribbon... wow!!
The Happy Harvest Blessing greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.
For the 2nd fall card idea, I used a piece of the new chicken wire from pg 43 in the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, and sponged it with Copper Shimmer paint.. ok, seriously!? This is so cool!!
Below: I layered the chicken wire piece onto a Very Vanilla panel that was embossed with embossing paste and the brick "Pattern Party Decorative Mask". You can find ALL of these paper crafting supplies in my online Stampin' Up! store, and also at the bottom of this post. My online store is open 24/7 for your shopping convenience :)

The finishing touch on this card was a piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, pg 43 in the Holiday catalog. I realized I could have also used Copper trim, but this was also a very pretty choice. The thankful stamped greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.
