When I think of fall, the first thought that comes to mind is colorful fall leaves and today, I get to share with you my Everything Fall Card. A Thank You card featuring a really cool stamping technique.  

This card was made using Stampin' Up!'s  Lighthearted Photopolymer Stamp Set that is in the newly released Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. One of the great things about this stamp set is  that it has a coordinating  Leaflets Framelit Die which is found in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.  I also used designer series paper from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper. This card was so fun to make using many different layers and bringing out the Fall colors. Take a close look at the leaves, there is a multi-colored leaf. That particular  leaf is made using "Joseph's Coat" stamping technique. I will have the dimensions for the different layers and all the supplies used to make this card on the bottom of this post. Here is a quick video showing how I created that colorful leaf:

My next project is cute little gift bag that coordinates with the card:

This is a really quick and easy gift bag made using Stampin' Up!'s Gift Bag Punch Board. The board is designed to make three different size gift bags. The measurements I used are the measurements to make the Medium size gift bag. You can see a quick video tutorial on how to make this bag by clicking HERE. The paper is from the In The Woods Designer Series Paper (the same paper from my card project) and the wording is also from the Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set. 

I really hope that you enjoyed my projects and Thank You so much for stopping by and visiting my blog. Now it's time to head on over to Andrea Card Shop to see what awesome projects she has created. Click the "Next" button to continue on our Everything Fall Blog Hop.
