Falling Leaves Thank You

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog this final Sunday in October.

It's a rainy and damp day here in Pittsburgh. I am sitting here typing up my post enjoying a hot cup of coffee. I wanted to turn the fireplace on but I always like my hubby to be here for the first start of the year. We have a gas fireplace so I just like him to turn it on. But, today he is at work so no fire for me.

Yesterday, I had some of my stamping friends over for a fun day of crafting. Everyone was working on different projects. I pulled out one of my Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kits to work on. I was able to make 7 cards. The kit includes a gift box to give the cards away. I plan on giving them to a friend for Christmas.

I will post pictures of those cards later. Today's card is another one I made using a different Paper Pumpkin kit. This one is the September falling leaves kit. I made this one using the colors from CC654. Stef was the hostess and she chose cajun craze, crushed curry and fresh fig as her color trio. Optional this week is metallics.
cajun craze, crushed curry, fresh fig
For my card, I used elements from the September "falling leaves" Stampin’-Up Paper Pumpkin kit. The large background die-cut leaf was already blended with cajun craze. I used the leaf stamp from the kit and stamped the leaf veins in Cajun craze ink.

The 3 smaller crushed curry leaves were stamped on very vanilla cardstock with another stamp from this kit. I fussy cut these leaves. The kit also had gold metallic leaf stickers that I used for the dessert option. Layered the gold leaf on top of the other leaves.

I scattered some sprigs and leaves cut in cajun craze and fresh fig cardstocks. These are from the CottageCutz pine spray die.

On my background I used the Stampin’-Up pinewood planks embossing folder. I splattered some cajun craze ink with a spritzer tool on the embossed panel.

To complete my card I stamped my “thank you” sentiment on the metallic die-cut tag that was also included in the kit. And, that's it for me for today Blogger friends. So until next time.......God bless.
